Judd Apatow Doesn't Consider Himself a Feminist

Judd Apatow has worked closely with Lena Dunham, one of the most visible feminists in Hollywood, but he says he doesn’t consider himself to be a feminist.

The 49-year-old filmmaker explained that he doesn’t decide to work with women just to make sure more women are working, he does it because they are talented.

“I don’t, at least not in those terms,” he said when asked if he thinks of himself as a feminist. “I just try to do what’s right whenever I see the opportunity. I’m sure I make mistakes. But I’m not working with Lena because I want women to do better; I’m working with Lena because she’s so inspiring.

“With Bridesmaids, I never thought, It’d be great if there was a movie that starred a lot of women and maybe that will help open some doors,” Judd continued in the interview with Vulture. “It’s great if that ends up happening, but that sort of thinking is never the starting point. Same thing with The Big Sick. I’m not thinking about representing minorities. I’m not thinking about society. I’m thinking, No one else’s ever made a movie about someone like this. That means it’s not going to be hacky. It’ll be new. Now let’s make it great.”
