CLARKE ON BEING A WOMAN IN HOLLYWOOD
British actor Emilia
Clarke (above) has opened up about the hardships she has been dealing with for being a woman in the male-dominated film and TV industry and compared it to racism.
“I feel so naive for saying it, but it’s like dealing with racism. You’re aware of it, but one day, you go, ‘Oh, my God, it’s everywhere!’ It took me a really long time to see that I do get treated differently. But I look around, and that’s my daily life,” Clarke said in an interview to Rolling Stone magazine.
However, being treated differently doesn’t stop Clarke from being a feminist. “Yes, I’ve got mascara on, and I also have a high IQ, so those two things can be one and the same.”
