Natalie Dormer on sex in Hollywood: "its not just men against women"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
On being heavily sexualized in Hollywood:

"Welcome to being an actress under a certain age in the industry. [she laughs] But, you know, there are sensitive men in the industry as well – writers, directors, producers. It’s not just men against women. David Benioff and Dan Weiss are liberal-minded Americans who believe in equality. And we’re all serving the story.”

On people thinking she only does period dramas:

“Look at my contemporaries – say, Keira Knightley who played the Duchess of Devonshire [in The Duchess], a contemporary of Lady Worsley, and Anna Karenina. She has played four or five historical characters. And I really haven’t. It’s weird, people’s perceptions of me. It seems disproportionate of me being in costume drama.”

Thinks that women shouldn't dismiss feminism on Twitter
“I mean, only 230 years ago, in this country, a woman was the property of her husband. That’s something that women in their 20s should consider when slagging off ‘feminism’ on Twitter. Or, when this was set, only 15 per cent of the male population over 21 had the vote. Yet everything on the news at the moment is apathy towards politics.
