Q What changes have you seen during your 30 years in Hollywood?
Progress has been slow; sadly, I think I’m going to miss out on a lot of the rewards that are coming, but I do think they’re going to come. My generation was not in a position to demand. The women I know who are directors felt like they had to lose their femininity to be taken seriously. You would be made fun of if you were emotional. I think the younger generation is going to say, “Screw that—we’re emotional beings, so get used to it.” They’re going to demand to be taken seriously. I’m happy for my children because it’s past due.
