Gillian Jacobs Talks About Being a Feminist in 'Bust' Magazine
Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On her childhood: “Apparently, my elementary school called my mom and told her that I was talking to myself on the playground and I had no friends. My mom says I was a dramatic child and that I made a big production out of everything, so she thought I would like acting. She signed me up for this class and I just fell in love with it from the start.”
On comedy: “No one would hire me for [comedy] ’cause everything I’d done was a serious, heavy drama. I think unless someone has seen you do something, they can’t imagine you doing it.”
On being a feminist: “I definitely still consider myself a feminist. I just think I’m surrounded by more people now who share these same ideas. When you’re a little kid and you’re wanting to talk about equal pay, you’re not gonna find a lot of other little kids who are equally passionate about it. And i think my response to that was to become very strident about it. I think I understood as a kid that I could probably have more friends if I stopped talking about those sorts of things, but like Britta, it made me talk about them more.”
