Scarlett Johansson: Fans DO mind gender gap
SCARLETT JOHANSSON has urged audiences ‘to be vocal and demand’ more women-led films to end the gender gap in Hollywood.
The star, 32, is in the hen party comedy Rough Night, which is fronted by five women, a rarity in movies.
She said: ‘The conversation starts in the general public and I think the industry follows. Unfortunately they don’t often lead by example.
‘I think the audience has to be vocal and demand what they want to see and that they want diversity and that they want stories that reflect the zeitgeist.’
Co-star Jillian Bell echoed Johansson, saying: ‘The more people see them (women-led films), the more the studio gets the note that it works.’
