Anna Kendrick discusses sexism and feminism in Hollywood in Glamour UK

On the wider issue of sexism in Hollywood:

“It shouldn’t be the most important conversation about sexism – because no one really wants to fucking hear actors talk about this, because we’re in such positions of privilege… I would love to hear more about sexism that exists in other fields and how we can address that – but we keep getting asked about it.”

When asked if she thinks celebrities have a responsibility to use their platform to talk about ‘issues’:

“Well, it’s weird, isn’t it, because I feel like why would anybody want my ‘expert opinion’ on any of these topics? If you want to learn about intersectional feminism, read Roxanne Gay, don’t ask me, you know? I’m being asked to speak on these things when I’m trying to learn about them myself.”


Are you too privileged to talk about sexism, ONTD?
