Danielle Brooks Calls Out 'Ocean's 8' Prison Scene!

Danielle Brooks and Uzo Aduba are all smiles while posing for photographs at their Orange Is the New Black sixth season Atlanta screening and Q&A held at the Landmark Midtown Arts Cinema on Monday (July 16) in Atlanta, Ga.

Recently while promoting the hit Netflix series, Danielle, 28, voiced that she had a problem with a scene in Ocean’s 8 where Sandra Bullock‘s character is seen in full make-up while in prison.

“Fu-k it, I can just say it. First of all, yes, I’m here for all these women working,” Danielle declared (via The Guardian). “But the fact that the first minute, Sandra Bullock’s got all this make-up on and she’s in prison? Her hair’s got waves in it! I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’”

“The important thing is prison reform and immigration, and civil rights issues. That’s really what the show is about, and I think Taystee brings people back to that,” Danielle continued about OITNB. “We ain’t got no make-up on, we got all the same outfits on…”

FYI: Uzo is wearing a Matičevski dress from rental service Nova Octo.

Alison Brie & Danielle Brooks Call For More Female Leadership in TV

During the panel, the ladies spoke about how about how important it is to get more women behind the scenes in the TV industry.

“When you see Jenji Kohan running the show and all of the writers and the producers, and to even Cindy Holland running Netflix, you’re so empowered, and it reminds me, the actor, who most of the time is the least important part, that I can do any of what they’re doing … because they’re doing it,” Danielle said via Variety.

Regina added: “I will say, thank God for Netflix. … They have created this landscape that is creating opportunities for different types of roles. Movies, they have a long way to go. I’ll be honest, half the time I’m like, ‘I don’t need to go to the movies.’ If I’m not trying to see the latest superhero movie, there’s just not enough content out there that has stories that I’m interested in seeing. Netflix is providing that space for it to happen.”

FYI: Alison is wearing a Dsquared2 dress. Regina is wearing a Tadashi Shoji dress.
