Lena Dunham Says Lack of Diversity in Hollywood is a 'Serious Problem'

Lena Dunham is speaking out about Hollywood’s diversity issue, that was brought to light after the lack of nominations for diverse actors at this year’s Oscars.

The 29-year-old Girls actress spoke to E! and said that Hollywood needs to look towards the “incredibly talented and diverse voices” featured at Sundance this year.

“If the studio system is ignoring these voices then we have a very serious problem and they are and the fact is this dialogue and the promises that the Academy has made is the beginning of shifting that, but what really needs to happens is that people need to take notice and give resources to these voices,” Lena explained.

She added, “The idea that there aren’t enough diverse filmmakers or there aren’t enough woman filmmakers to give jobs to, it’s simply a fallacy and I know that because I’m here and I’m seeing the movies.”

    Clearly she’s bothered by this subject, i mean, look at the amount of black actors/actresses in her show.

    they get paid more because they make companies earn billions, not what you do as a waitress Jenny

    I think dialog is always good, it’s a nice thing to hear everyone’s opinion on this subject because at the end of the day it makes things go forward
