Cap­tain Amer­ica star on gen­der gap

Ash re­turns to Cannes

7 Days in Dubai - - CELEBRITY FIX -

Ac­tress Aish­warya Rai Bachchan poses for pho­tog­ra­phers on ar­rival at the screen­ing of the film Ma Loute at the 69th Cannes In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val. Chris Evans says Hol­ly­wood is “rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent” for men.

The Cap­tain Amer­ica: Civil War star be­lieves the film in­dus­try has un­der­ly­ing is­sues, which af­fect women in movie roles.

Speak­ing to Chelsea Han­dler on her Net­flix talk show Chelsea, the 34-year-old ac­tor said: “You can’t stick your head in the ground like that. Be­ing a guy, it’s a rad­i­cally dif­fer­ent land­scape. I think there is a gen­der gap that is ubiq­ui­tous in Hol­ly­wood, and I think a lot of times it’s hard to even iden­tify.

“It’s not even about the con­tracts [or pay]. If you look at that project there’s prob­a­bly about nine roles guy roles and one girl role. So even be­fore you get to the point of money there’s al­ready an is­sue go­ing on un­der­neath.”

Chris also said tak­ing on the role of the Marvel su­per­hero was the “best de­ci­sion” of his life. He said: “When I first got the of­fer to be a part of this fran­chise, the thought of a mul­ti­pic­ture con­tract that could last eight years of my life was stress­ful and scary. But do­ing these movies was the best de­ci­sion of my life.

“The di­rec­tors, the Russo broth­ers, have a way of mak­ing it feel ex­tremely re­lat­able and real amid flashes of su­per­hero fan­fare.”
