There has been a long running debate in the entertainment industry that there is a real problem with sexism in Hollywood and we have had a lot of Hollywood stars coming out and talking about the issue. While the majority of these women agree that there is a serious problem with sexism in Hollywood, there are others that have taken a slightly different approach to the debate.
Some of the biggest arguments made about the issue with sexism in Hollywood, is the fact that there are not enough big and powerful roles for women in the movie industry these days. However, Australian actress Naomi Watts has landed some very big roles over the years and she has now weighed in on the sexism problem in Hollywood.
Naomi says that, while she does feel that there is a fair amount of sexism in Hollywood, she also insists that there are some actresses in the industry who do not help the situation. Watts told the Daily Mail, "Jane Campion is right to say that there's an inherent sexism in the film industry. But there's also a lack of women putting themselves forward."
As far as her own acting career goes, Naomi Watts will star in a strong cast in the upcoming movie Birdman, which will include the likes of Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Michael Keaton, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis and Amy Ryan. Birdman is directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu, who also had a hand in the screenplay, and will open on October 14 in the US, before then hitting the big screen in the UK on January 2, 2015.
