Female creators changing Hollywood: 'Ladybird' actress

  • Print


Actress Saoirse Ronan, who features in 'Ladybird', said female creators are changing the industry following the #MeToo movement and that gradual change towards equality will become more visible in the coming years. "I think women are going to get a lot more meetings with studios than they did before," Ronan was quoted as saying.
She was talking on the Bill Simmons Podcast while promoting 'Ladybird', for which she is nominated in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category. "I think we're not going to see the difference in the work for another couple years, at least. Things are going to need to go into development. Women are obviously going to be working hard to have something to go in with, which they do already, and I think they'll just be given more of a chance," Ronan added.
She said the industry needs to get to a point past employing women to meet a quota. "Not where it's sort of like, 'Oh, let's get a female director' because she's a woman. Because you know, we need to have the token female director. They just need to open up the floodgates so that everyone has a chance to show what they can do."
