Helen Mirren Says We're Looking For Change In All The Wrong Places
Helen Mirren speaks on stage during the 2015 Tokyo International Film Festival on Saturday night (October 24) in Japan.
The 70-year-old actress, in a Dolce & Gabbana skirt, attended the screening of her film, Woman In Gold, and received a gorgeous bouquet from the crowd ahead of the show.
“When roles for women in real life change, then you will see change in the film industry,” Helen recently shared in an interview. “If we happen to see a [female] president of the United States, and a world expert on marine biology comes on television and it’s a woman, or the female head of a petroleum company on the news.”
She adds, “I think what’s galling to me is when you see someone who’s supposed to be a high-level surgeon in a film and she’s being played by a 28-year-old actress. They wouldn’t even be qualified yet, never mind eminent.”
