George Clooney And Sandra Bullock’s Plan To Fix Hollywood Sexism.

The actress stars as a political strategist in Our Brand Is Crisis, a part originally written for a man. (Pal George Clooney, one of the film’s producers, was reportedly up for the role). “There’s so much talk of that right now, and it’s getting heightened, which makes me very happy,” the actress, 51, told reporters Saturday at a press conference for the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival. “What I’d like to comment on is the fact that I was able to say: ‘Would you be able to take a role that was written and that you guys have worked on and cherished a long time and change it to a female?'” she added. “And there was not a lot of hesitation. Execs could also try giving the go-ahead to scripts that are already written with complicated women characters — maybe even written by women themselves! And for those who preferred their searches to be more personal, there were performances that wrestled with identity, politics and the places where those converged.

What I want for the future [is] more of the same but if it doesn’t happen there will be a good reason for it.” Earlier this month, Us Weekly exclusively revealed that Bullock is dating a new man, hot photographer Bryan Randall. Just as a little reminder, a University of Southern California study found that of 700 movies released between 2007 and 2014, a mere 1.9 percent were directed by women. The two were first spotted together at Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s wedding in August, and have been keeping a low profile in Hollywood since then.

We still have some ways to go, but I don’t mind being the one to ask, ‘What do you got that you haven’t made yet, that you’d be willing to change for me?'” said Bullock. “And hopefully, I mean, what would be very helpful was if this film has a level of success that makes the studio go: Okay, this is a viable thing for us. Mine is like a Chia pet!” Later that evening, just around the corner from where Bullock and Clooney were having their butt-off, Clooney’s pal Matt Damon joined costars Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara and Chiwetel Ejiofor and director Ridley Scott for the premiere of “The Martian.” The zippy and thrilling space drama stars Damon as an astronaut accidentally abandoned on Mars, as his former crew members and NASA try to figure out a way to get him off the Red Planet.

What things do I want to say that I want to parlay to him in what I feel about the world, and how I want the world to be?’” “I’ve been on the floor and I’ve been heartbroken,” she told The Mirror in 2013. “I didn’t know how I was going to stand up. On the red carpet, Damon commented that one reason he liked his character from the best-selling book, who never loses his sense of humor as he struggles to survive, was that “He’s ingenious in how he figures out how to save his own life.” Another dangerous place, as shown in “Sicario,” which debuted Friday, is the Mexico-U.S. border towns that are on the front lines of the drug war. Emily Blunt plays an FBI agent recruited by a mysterious DEA agent (Josh Brolin) and his partner (Benicio Del Toro) to follow a trail of murder and money all the way to a drug kingpin. Bullock agreed and there were plenty of other subjects to address, from her working relationship with longtime pals Clooney and Heslov (“We disagree well,” she said, as Clooney added, “We fight fair”) to a status update on her life and roles for women. The film is the latest from Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, a TIFF favorite — his “Prisoners” wowed here in 2013. “Sicario,” opening in theaters Friday, plays like a Donald Trump nightmare, starting with a raid on a cartel’s Arizona hideout, proceeding through a miles-long tunnel to Mexico and finishing in some very bloody retribution.

She was unlikable, and she was struggling, and that, to me, is interesting to watch, because it’s in all of us.” It wasn’t just the role’s depth that was alluring, though that drew her to it: It’s the message the film sends out – especially to her son, Louis, 5. “I look at things now, I’m going, ‘What am I leaving behind for my son? The bloody world of London’s East End during the 1950s and ’60s is the setting for “Legend,” with Tom Hardy (“Mad Max: Fury Road”) playing two roles: Twin brothers and murdering gangsters Reggie and Ronald Kray. In his newest, “The Danish Girl,” Redmayne plays Einar Wegener, who in the 1920s in Copenhagen became the world’s first recipient of a male-to-female sex change, becoming a woman named Lili Eibe.

The movie is directed by Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”) and buzz is that Redmayne could possibly be a member of another exclusive club: Actors who’ve won Best Actor Oscars two years in a row. The New York-set movie, costarring Naomi Watts (as Fanning’s mother) and Susan Sarandon (as her grandmother), has, like “Danish Girl,” gotten some heat for not casting transgendered performers in its lead roles. So does the small, spirited “Freeheld,” based on a 2007 Oscar-winning short about a New Jersey police officer who came out of the closet in the 1990s and sued for the right to award her pension to her lesbian partner. “Freehold” has tears, as Hester pushes for her benefits only because she became ill. The film doesn’t shrink from grim hospital scenes, or the circus the court case became. “Movies are an empathy machine,” Page says. “We see stories about people we thought were different from us, and then we realize they’re really not.

And that’s the only way progress is made.” The film chronicles young Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani activist for girls’ education, from her girlhood in Swat, Pakistan, to her being shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 for speaking out for female rights in her home country through her recovery, accomplishments and relocation with her family to England and being awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.
