Gemma Arterton Talks Hollywood's 'List': 'It Really Exists, I'm Like A C'

Gemma Arterton has opened up about the brutality of Hollywood sexism as a business and their infamous way of grading actors on lists.

“When you make films about women, you can’t get financing in the same way you would if it was a film about men,” the 31-year-old actress recently expressed (via The Standard).

“Oh no, it really exists, I’m like a C,” Gemma admits. “I know, because I am sitting in the meetings trying to get financing for films that I’m in and they’re like: ‘We love you, but could you also get… [insert category A actress]?’”

Gemma also talks being originally lined up as the lead in 2013′s acclaimed sci-fi film Under The Skin starring Scarlett Johansson, directed by Jonathan Glazer: “But they couldn’t finance it with me,” Gemma revealed. “Jonathan called me and said: ‘I’ve tried, but they need someone really famous to star in it.’ It’s just the way it is.”

    The funniest part is most actors these days are so generic and unremarkable that you could exchange them for anyone else and it wouldn’t matter. There are very few if any younger actors where I am like “hey I like that actor I am going to see it because of them.” Even the ones who are supposed to be “a-list” and all I could care less about. Ask Scarlet Johansen. Is she great as Black Widow? Yes, but no one sees her other films.
