For many years now, a lot of people have been coming out and talking about the lack of quality roles for women in Hollywood, claiming that the men in the industry get so much better roles and many more of them too. However, it seems that the complaints are finally being heard, as Hollywood does seem to be beginning to make a change for the better and giving women better roles.
19 year old Hollywood actress Hailee Steinfeld has been working in Hollywood since she was just a young girl and she has admitted that she has seen a lot of positive changes taking place in recent years. Hailee feels that the female characters are becoming much more important to movies, admitting that she feels proud to be a part of these positive changes in Hollywood.
Steinfeld explained, "Female characters are beginning to have more of a say in the meaning of the film. They're not just a love interest or a sidekick or a best friend. It feels like these female characters are more empowering and they're more meaningful and they have important things to say that need to be heard. For me, anyway, it's a movement that's been happening for a while and I'm lucky to be a part of it."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Hailee Steinfeld has once again been earning rave reviews, for her performance in the very impressive movie The Edge of Seventeen, which is set to hit the big screen on November 18 in the US and November 25 in the UK.
