At the event, Lena revealed that she isn’t interested in being directed by man at this time in her career.

“I’m not that attracted to that, I don’t have a case of great man syndrome,” Lena expressed. “It sounds so tiring to me to get bossed around by a dude for six months, it’s almost inconceivable but never say never. At this point I would just like to write and direct, I would really like to create opportunities for other women. I really love directing other female actors.”

FYI: Gabrielle is wearing a Calvin Klein Collection dress and carrying an M2MALLETIER bag. Lena is J Brand jeans.
