Jessica Chastain & Barbra Streisand Sound Off On The Entertainment Industry's Double Standards For Women
Over the past month, Jessica and Barbra have joined other actresses in Hollywood speaking out on sexism in the industry and what it means to be a powerful woman in a male dominated world. Both of the ladies gave eloquent analyses on the topic and offered words of wisdom for their successors.
Chastain, who is currently working on the film The Zookeeper's Wife, expressed her excitement over collaborating with more women than usual, saying:
"We're not even 50 percent of the crew – we're probably something like 20 percent women and 80 percent men – but it's way more than I've ever worked with on a film before. Usually on a movie it would be me and maybe two or three other women, even though there are 100 people there. It's crazy. I loved making the movie Lawless – it was a very masculine story about three brothers – but when Mia Wasikowska showed up on the set, I ran into her trailer and yelled, 'It's a girl!' I was so happy."
Woah, we can't believe Jess is usually on set with just two or three other women! Insane!
