Alexander Skarsgard Recognizes the 'Disgusting' Gender Bias in the Film Industry

Alexander Skarsgard is opening up about the gender bias in the film industry and how it’s not just a problem in Hollywood.

“There is a double standard [in the film industry]. I notice that with actress friends of mine. And it’s disgusting,” the 41-year-old actor said in a new interview with Elle UK.

“It’s not a problem that’s specific to Hollywood. I think you see this in many professions, where men in power think they’re entitled. So these women are very brave to talk about it, and I do believe it will fundamentally change things,” Alex added.

The Big Little Lies actor also opened up about being a feminist.

“I’m 100 percent feminist. Sweden is very progressive. In terms of equal rights, I think it’s ahead of most countries,” he said.

    Alex is jumping on the bandwagon a little late. He’s been recently questioned about not making any statements concerning abuse at BLL award shows. Everyone but Alex has been centered on the subject, but he doesn’t seem to be very experienced with women. His relationship with his long time lady friend, Chung, is rather strange, as she’s reported in recent articles. Plus, his infatuation with his famous married, 9 year older, BLL co-star is cringe worthy.. His ‘I love her’ stated over and over at one of the award shows was cringe worthy.

    Don’t be pathetic. It’s never too late.
