Sigourney Weaver is all smiles as she hits the stage to accept the Donostia Award held during the 2016 San Sebastian International Film Festival at the Kursaal Palace on Wednesday (September 21) in San Sebastian, Spain.
The 66-year-old actress received the lifetime achievement honor after walking the red carpet for the Spanish premiere of her latest film A Monster Calls with director J.A. Bayona.
“It’s exciting in the U.S. now that it looks like we are finally going to have a woman president,” Sigourney expressed during a press conference that morning (via Variety). “It’s overdue. I think a lot of the progress we made is now coming to fruition. We have women in all walks of life, armed services and other jobs. I don’t think I’ve ever had more work. Men have more roles, but I don’t think they have better roles. I don’t envy Russell Crowe. Great stories have great women’s parts. I’m often asked to play roles that traditionally would have gone to men. I think it’s a good time for women.”
“He has got work to do, and I have things going on. I hope we do get to do it,” Sigourney added about Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien sequel. “It’s one of those things we wanted to do this past year, but I think Ridley [Scott] didn’t want them all coming out at the same time.”

Michelle Rodriguez rocks an all black ensemble while attending the premiere of her latest film (re)Assignment held during 2016 Toronto International Film Festival at Ryerson Theatre on Wednesday (September 14) in Toronto, Canada.
The 38-year-old actress was joined by her co-stars Sigourney Weaver and Adrian Hough, as well as Walter Hill.
(re)Assignment stars Michelle as an assassin named Frank Kitchen. After killing the brother of a brilliant but deranged surgeon, Kitchen is captured and awakes to find himself unwillingly turned into a woman.
At the event, Michelle and Sigourney came to the film’s defense after it received harsh criticism in the transgender community, who said the medical procedure should not be used as a sensationalistic plot device.
“Are they mad that somebody decided to take their branded transgender operation and use it on heterosexual people?,” Michelleexpressed. “It’s a B-movie noir genre comic book take on something. I’m bisexual. I do guys. I do girls. You can’t really argue with me because I’m you. So if I do a movie, I’d never do a movie with the intention of offending anybody in the LGBT community because I’m a part of it.”
“Certainly no-one is demeaned or denigrated,” Sigourney added. “It’s not a Disney movie. It is noir.”
The 32-year-old actress was joined on the carpet by her co-star Sigourney Weaver, as they premiered their upcoming movie, A Monster Calls, at TIFF.
