Scarlett Johansson pleased by ‘female energy’ on set
Scarlett Johansson is pleased to see more "female energy" on set.
The ‘Captain America: Civil War’ star is glad to see more women working on film sets as she feels it was "basically a bunch of dudes" running movies ten years ago.
She told The New York Times’ Turning Points magazine: "We see more female directors, more women in various departments on set. If you looked around a film set even 10 years ago, it was basically a bunch of dudes; maybe in the wardrobe department or in the hair and makeup department there would be women.
"Now you see more female camera assistants, cinematographers, grips. It’s nice to have a diverse group of people so that it doesn’t become so one-note – to have a female energy on set, to have different types of people and different vibes, and a more balanced creative environment."
Meanwhile, Scarlett previously admitted she found it "disappointing" to be named the highest-grossing actress of all time and was upset that no other women managed a place in the top 10.
She said: "It’s exciting to be the only woman in this category [but] it’s kind of disappointing actually to be the only woman in this category. That was a little bit of a surprise to me."
And the blonde beauty previously fumed about the gender pay gap in Hollywood but admits she is "fortunate" to make such a good living from acting
She explained: "There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole. I am very fortunate, I make a really good living and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage. I think every woman has [been underpaid]. But unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general."
