Kristen Stewart isn’t holding back! In a new interview, she dishes about the ‘disgustingly sexist’ industry that she works in, and gets real regarding her feelings on the subject.
Carey Mulligan, Patricia Arquette, and now, Kristen Stewart. The 25-year-old joins the ranks of powerful women in Hollywood who are speaking out about sexism in the industry, and in an interview for Harper’s Bazaar UK, she doesn’t hold much back. Find out what she had to say!
Kristen Stewart Disses Hollywood: Sexism Is ‘Offensive’
“Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard,” she told the mag. “Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It’s crazy. It’s so offensive it’s crazy.”
Whoa, K. Stew — tell us how you really feel!
The actress didn’t go into specifics regarding her particular experiences in the industry, but considering she’s been working in film since she was just a child, she obviously knows a lot about what’s going down behind the scenes.
Kristen’s comments mimic those boldly made by Patricia during her Oscars acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress. The Boyhood star used her major platform at the show to share an inspiring message about women’s rights, alluding, mostly, to the the wage differences between males and females.
“To every woman who gave birth,” she announced. “We have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America!”
Meanwhile, in April, Carey told Time Out London: “There’s a lack of material for women. A lack of great stories for women.” Amen, ladies!
Women’s rights weren’t all Kristen discussed in her Harper’s Bazaar UK interview, though — she also dished on what it was like to have sex with Robert Pattinson, 28, in Twilight. But apparently the moment wasn’t as magical as the audience thought!
“It had to be transcendent and otherworldly, inhuman, better sex than you can ever possibly imagine,” she said. “And we were like, ‘How do we live up to that?’ It was agony. Which sucks, because I wanted it to be so good.”
OMG, did she really just refer to a sex scene with Robert Pattinson as agony!? Of course, we do understand how awkward it must’ve been to have to put on such a great show with lights, cameras and dozens of people watching…
