Rose Byrne on Hollywood's Sexism Problem: It's Not Just Misogyny, It's Discrimination
Rose Byrne lands at the airport and gives a slightly shocked smile to onlookers on Monday (May 25) in Montreal, Canada.
The 35-year-old actress is in town to film the latest X-Men movie.
Rose recently gave an interview to PrideSource, where she talked about female discrimination in Hollywood.
“The statistics are still so dreadful for women in film. Now the ACLU is doing an investigation into it because they’re starting to realize it’s actually discrimination – it’s not just good ol’ fashioned misogyny that everyone’s quietly tolerated for years,” Rose said. “The business is sort of the wrong way in the sense that the statistics are just really dreadful for women in terms of speaking parts and paychecks for women. All that stuff that was leaked through the Internet when Sony was hacked – it all speaks for itself. So, it is beyond just misogyny. It’s legitimate discrimination based on gender, which is illegal. Any discrimination is, whether it’s sexuality, race or gender.”
FYI: Rose is wearing a Splendid striped shirt.
