EMMA TALKS ABOUT HER EX­PE­RI­ENCE IN ‘SEX­IST’ HOL­LY­WOOD

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Bri­tish ac­tor Emma Wat­son (left) feels the dis­par­ity be­tween the num­ber of fe­male and male di­rec­tors she has worked with is proof of the in­equal­ity that ex­ists against women work­ing in the movies. The 25-year-old has never been shy about ex­press­ing her dis­taste for the in­equal treat­ment of women in Hol­ly­wood.

“I have ex­pe­ri­enced sex­ism in that I have been di­rected by male di­rec­tors 17 times and only twice by women. Of the pro­duc­ers I’ve worked with, 13 have been male and only one has been a woman,” the Harry Pot­ter star said. Wat­son, how­ever, ad­mit­ted that she has been lucky as com­pared to other women who have been turned away sim­ply be­cause of their gen­der, whether as an ac­tress or as a di­rec­tor. “I have al­ways in­sisted on be­ing treated equally and have gen­er­ally won that equal­ity,” she ex­plained.
