'Sin City 2' star Eva Green says sexism is a big problem in Hollywood and has been for a long time.
She told the Evening Standard, “There are simply not enough good roles for women and for the last 20 years it has been so male-dominated and continues to be so.”
The actress who is currently the face of Campari’s 2015 calendar says that actresses are better served by television nowadays, citing her Sky One show ‘Penny Dreadful’ as a good example.
“Television is perhaps changing the shape of the industry. The special gift of long-format scripted drama in TV means you can explore characters in far more depth.”
French actress Green rose to fame playing femme fatale Vesper Lynd opposite James Bond in ‘Casino Royale’ and has since appeared in a number of huge Hollywood films including ‘The Golden Compass’, ‘Dark Shadows’, and this year’s ‘300: Rise of an Empire’.
She’ll be seen next alongside Shailene Woodley in ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’, and in the second season of ‘Penny Dreadful’ which is currently shooting now.
