Sigourney Weaver Accepts Donostia Award, Talks Hillary Clinton & 'Alien'!

Sigourney Weaver is all smiles as she hits the stage to accept the Donostia Award held during the 2016 San Sebastian International Film Festival at the Kursaal Palace on Wednesday (September 21) in San Sebastian, Spain.

The 66-year-old actress received the lifetime achievement honor after walking the red carpet for the Spanish premiere of her latest film A Monster Calls with director J.A. Bayona.

“It’s exciting in the U.S. now that it looks like we are finally going to have a woman president,” Sigourney expressed during a press conference that morning (via Variety). “It’s overdue. I think a lot of the progress we made is now coming to fruition. We have women in all walks of life, armed services and other jobs. I don’t think I’ve ever had more work. Men have more roles, but I don’t think they have better roles. I don’t envy Russell Crowe. Great stories have great women’s parts. I’m often asked to play roles that traditionally would have gone to men. I think it’s a good time for women.”

“He has got work to do, and I have things going on. I hope we do get to do it,” Sigourney added about Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien sequel. “It’s one of those things we wanted to do this past year, but I think Ridley [Scott] didn’t want them all coming out at the same time.”
