Well it seems that the ongoing attacks that Hollywood has been facing in recent weeks and months, and even years for that matter, are not showing any sign of going away any time soon, which should hopefully see the big players in the industry making some positive changes very soon. We have heard a lot of complaints about how difficult it is for women and black stars to make a success of themselves in Hollywood, which will hopefully improve in the near future.
Now, beautiful and talented actress Rosamund Pike has opened up about the issues, giving her views on what has been going on in Hollywood, echoing those claims from the many people before her. Rosamund states that it is fine for a woman to get a role as a second lead, just so long as the main lead actor is a male.
Pike was at the BFI London Film Festival for the premiere of her new movie 'A United Kingdom', when she said, "It's not easy being a woman in this business ... there aren't as many roles. It's also hard from an actor's point of view to be a person of colour. It is fine to be the second lead, but it's not always so easy to be the lead."
As far as the movie is concerned, as well as having Rosamund Pike on board, the rest of the cast of A United Kingdom includes such names as Jack Davenport, Tom Felton, Laura Carmichael, and David Oyelowo, among others. A United Kingdom has been directed by Amma Asante, based on the screenplay developed by Guy Hibbert, with the movie set to hit the big screen on November 25 in the UK, before then hitting the US on February 17, 2017.
