Celebs Praise Jessica Chastain's Critique of Cannes Movies' Representation of Women

Jessica Chastain is being praised by a lot of celebs for her critique of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival movies’ representation of women.

The Oscar-nominated actress was one of the jurors at the festival this month and she watched 20 films in 10 days, but was “disturbed” by the female characters on screen.

“It was quite disturbing to me, to be honest. There are some exceptions. For the most part, I was surprised with the representation of female characters on screen in these films,” Jessica said during a post-closing ceremony press conference.

Stars like Kerry Washington, Lena Dunham, America Ferrera, and more are speaking out on Twitter to applaud Jessica for her words. Read some of the tweets below!

    so how do we change this when people are not willing to pay to see a movie with a female lead? it’s not that anyone in hollywood doesn’t want to cast strong females, it’s that the public won’t pay to watch. believe me if they made money every hollywood movie would have a female lead. this is the planet discriminating, not hollywood.

    Repeat post from the last story: Jes must have amnesia because her role in her first movie Jolene SHE HERSELF STARRED IN, was one of the grossest movies I’ve ever seen and her character was controlled and exploited by every male she slept with in the film, and all the women in the movie were portrayed as horrible people, so wth is she talking about? Don’t agree with her politics but admit she is gorgeous and a really good actress.

    it was beginning of her career. Everyone has to start from somewhere. She did not have enough star power to stand against probably.
