Actor Ethan Hawke believes it is a good time in Hollywood for the young female actor as the world is more “receptive” to their voice.
“It definitely feels a safer climate than it did 10 years ago for women. It’s a really good time to be 19 and female, with a lot on your mind. The world is receptive to your voice in a way it wasn’t when I was a kid,” he said referencing his 19-year-old daughter Maya,
The 47-year-old actor says he has realised how much of a “boy’s club” the movie industry actually is.
“Because, for years, it became more apparent to me what a boy’s club the movie industry is. It’s not that I didn’t like it. We all like it when society works to our advantage. The oppressor never freely gives up.
“But anyone who’s sane and continues to mature will see the advantages they’ve had in life. I didn’t even know it. When I was 20, I didn’t know the way the world was geared to help me,” Hawke added as quoted in a news report.
