During the chat, Christian spoke about providing better representation in Hollywood to tell more stories.

“Our culture will be so much richer the day we stop saying ‘hey, it’s old white dudes who are running things.’ Whether that be Hollywood, whether that be Washington. We’re gonna get, in Hollywood, so much better film and so much more interesting stories being told. America will become the America that the rest of the world sees it as,” Christian said.

Watch him explain below.

    Because for the past 8 years we were a country of inclusion? Obama deported more people than any living people and was bombing 7 different countries while creating the largest refugee crisis in modern history.

    these Hollywood loonies, all try to blame race on things when the real culprit is classism. stop deflecting cause you are part of the problem.

    Deadpo00l You´re full of BS. I bet you´re a dumb Trump supporter who will never criticize Trump even if he destroys the US.

  • DEADP00L

    I criticize him every hour of everyday. I criticized Bush and Clinton too – its called INTEGRITY.

    Just what we need, more self-hate. News flash, just because you’re a privileged white male doesn’t mean all white males are. Lots of us are poor and lack power.

  • rubie

    It means something when a respected actor speaks these words, the words that no one addresses because they are scared they wont get casted in another movie. The words that men like Damon don’t want to hear! That’s right Bale, scream out loud!! Diversity is power, we are diversity, America is diversity, we are one and when we all know that and we can all root for each other, Black, White, Spanish, Asian, all the mixes in between than and only than we will be united!!!

    did you not read what he said? he is saying nothing about self hate at all. he is only saying 100% of the truth about INCLUDING ALL people not just the ones with white skin!!!! where do u read self hate in his statement?

    99.9% white males in all the movies we see, 99.9% white males in congress making rules that ALL have to abide by, 99.9% of white males owning ALL the wealth in the world. what don’t u understand?

  • parisjok

    u are a dumb bell. go to your room or u better go ask somebody

  • Ash

    Not an argument. Try harder next time.

  • Gina

    Class and race aren’t mutually exclusive, in fact they overlap in many ways.
