While we wholeheartedly agree that women in Hollywood do deserve to start landing bigger and better roles in movies, as well as getting paid the money they deserve for playing such characters, we are beginning to get a little bit bored of pretty much every single person in Hollywood coming out to talk about the issue, which we are all fully aware of.
We have seen and heard from so many different people in Hollywood in the past weeks, months and years, with the latest start to discuss the issue being actor Jeremy Renner, who has been working with Amy Adams on the new movie Arrival. Amy has a very big role in the movie and Jeremy says that there should be more roles like this for other actresses in Hollywood.
Renner was a guest on Good Morning Britain, when he said, "There just are never enough lead roles, especially quality lead roles, for women in Hollywood. This (Arrival) is just, I think, a spectacular one because she’s not victimised, she’s not anything else - she’s actually a superhero, she saves the world."
He added, "She doesn’t have superpowers or anything but she’s a smart woman, she’s a linguist and she’s all the things that I think make a woman, a woman. (Playing a mathematician) was a big departure from things I have done in the past, and to work with Amy and support Amy in this movie, and to work with (director) Denis Villeneuve was an absolute treasure."
Arrival is set to hit the big screen on November 11 in both the US and the UK.
