Charlize Theron on Box Office Double Standards
In her interview, Charlize talks about how the double standards for movies with female and male leads.
[Women] have to work so much harder tocome back from a failure. It’s not so dependent on the star when it’s a male. It’s more, ‘Well, maybe the movie didn’t work.’ With females, it’s like, ‘The movie didn’t work because of her.’ That needs to change. Financiers are more willing to finance a male star. I just wonder what beautiful storytelling we have missed out on because [people] were too scared to take a chance on a woman.”
