Kristen Stewart Calls Hollywood "Disgustingly Sexist," But Thanks To Her & Other Actresses That Just Might Change
Once again, the Twilight actress is letting her voice be heard. While chatting with Harper's Bazaar UK, Kristen Stewart opened up about sexism in Hollywood. Like always, Stewart was very candid and didn't hold back about how she really feels when it comes to inequality, discrimination, and double standards in the entertainment industry. She said,
Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy.
In addition to talking about the ongoing issue of sexism in Hollywood, Stewart also touched upon those who seek fame. Being famous, being in the spotlight, and having cameras follow you is something she's not interested in. She revealed, "Fame is the worst thing in the world. Especially if it's pointless. When people say, 'I want to be famous' Why? You don't do anything."
In addition to her career as an actor, it appears that Stewart is using her fame for a good cause — promoting something she deeply cares about. For example, feminism and sexism are two things she talks about repeatedly. She's all about supporting women.
It should come as no surprise that Stewart is speaking her mind. Seriously, when doesn't she? This isn't the first time she's openly discussed her views, especially when it comes to feminism. Remember that time she opened up to Wonderland magazine about being a feminist? She said, "A lot of girls nowadays are like, “Eww, I’m not like that.” They don’t get that there’s no one particular way you have to be in order to stand for all of the things feminism stands for."
Thanks to Stewart and her wise words, she's helping to change the sexist ways of the world. Not only is she shining a light on something that's extremely important, but she's joining the ranks of many other actresses who feel the same way, including Emma Watson, Mindy Kaling, Meryl Streep, Patricia Arquette, and Viola Davis, among many others.
Seeing these talented and intelligent women joining forces and standing up for other women is definitely making an impact. One day, thanks to them and other women all around the world, sexism will hopefully be a blip on the radar.
