Evangeline Lilly Says She Doesn't Like the Word Feminism
Evangeline Lilly meets up with co-star Lee Pace on the red carpet at the premiere of their movie The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on Tuesday evening (December 9) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
Evangeline recently talked to the Huffington Post and said that while she loves playing “kick-ass chicks,” she doesn’t want to compromise her womanhood.
“I’m very proud of being a woman, and as a woman, I don’t even like the word feminism because when I hear that word, I associate it with women trying to pretend to be men, and I’m not interested in trying to pretend to be a man,” Evangeline said. “I don’t want to embrace manhood, I want to embrace my womanhood.”
FYI: Evangeline is wearing an Alberta Ferretti gown, an Edie Parker clutch, and an Atelier Swarovski ring and ear cuff. Lee is wearing Suit Supply.
