There have been a lot of people talking about the sexism in Hollywood recently, with plenty of stars insisting that there are not enough interesting and exciting roles for women in the acting industry these days. It has been suggested that all the good roles are written for men and that the women in Hollywood are just used as eye candy.
Now, beautiful and talented actress Emily Browning has given her views on the sexism in Hollywood, and it sounds like she feels just the same as the rest of them. Emily says that she does not just want to be the eye candy, while claiming that Hollywood is a place for white male actors.
During a recent interview with the Guardian newspaper, Browning explained, "I got told all the time when I was younger that I am wise beyond my years, before I realised they say that to everyone."
She added, "I'm so determined not to play the hot babe that doesn't say anything, that can't have an opinion, but it's so difficult to resist all of that. Hollywood movies are made for white men, and that's something I think about and which bothers me all the time. The sad thing is it's so consistent, and so present. Sometimes you don't even notice it."
As far as her own acting career is concerned, Emily Browning stars in the new movie Legend, which sees Tom Hardy playing the role of both Ronnie Kray and Reggie Kray. Legend has been directed by Brian Helgeland and is set to hit the big screen on October 2 in the US, with the movie out this week in the UK.
