Kristen Stewart Says Hollywood’s Gender Equality Debate Is ‘Boring’

Ellen Page recently offered up a fairly eloquent critique of Hollywood’s rampant issue with diversity, lending her support to non-white members of the film industry as she urged a more inclusive atmosphere both behind the lens and in front of it.

Fellow actress Kristen Stewart also has thoughts on diversity in Hollywood, though hers relate specifically to gender equality. And while she does admit it’s an “awkward” discussion for her, she ultimately offers some advice for those complaining about a lack of diversity in film — and misses the point entirely in the process.

“Like in any business that’s so old, it’s going to have a somewhat narrow view, and it’s expanding quickly on so many levels. It’s hard for me to speak to that because it’s awkward,” Stewart began, in an interview with Variety. “I’m so f—ing lucky and so stimulated and driven and not bored. And I have something in front of me all the time so it sounds weird for me to sit around and be like ‘It’s not fair!’”

She continued: “Guys make more money because their movies make more money, it makes sense. If you’re bored or if you feel like there’s a lack of something in front of you it’s silly for me to say, ‘Go do something,’ but…instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something.”

Stewart then showed a modicum of self-awareness, saying, “And that’s easy to say, like f—k, it’s hard to get movies made. It’s a huge luxury. Who gets to just make movies?” before finishing with a disappointing, “That subject is just so prevalently everywhere right now, it’s boring.”
