Jodie Foster Says America Has a "Problem" With Female Directors
Hollywood Reporter ^ | May 21, 2018 | Lou Vanhecke

Posted on 05/21/2018 7:31:02 AM PDT by EdnaMode

Hotel Artemis star Jodie Foster explained that she loves to act but will continue directing as well at Saturday's premiere of the new action film at the Regency Bruin Theater in Los Angeles.

“I said it and I’ll keep saying it — I want to direct,” Foster explained to The Hollywood Reporter. “And I will direct more than I acted.”

The actress/filmmaker was not shy to share her thoughts about the rise of female directors, as that faction of the film industry has been the “last area” that needs to see a change. She also made a point to mention that “Europe has always been ahead.”

“It’s America that’s the problem, and it has been for a very long time,” Foster said. “We need to bang the head of America to let them know that it needs female directors.” Furthering her comments on female helmers in Hollywood, Foster smiled and said, “Just look at Wonder Woman.”

Bingo. Hollywood is Progressivism Central, and, yet, it isn’t a Progressive utopia in spite of being run by Progressively Progressive Progressives.

I'll bet she just adores Leni Riefenstahl's Triumph of the Will.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t go see a movie because of who the director is. Usually, I don’t know until the credits start. And, the way the Hollyweirdos have been acting, I may not be going to any of their movies again.

We don’t like crappy movies. No matter who directs them.

The film industry might have a problem with it, but I doubt all of America does.

“Just look at Wonder Woman.”

The super successful movie?
Does she think dudes didn’t want to see that because Gal Gadot is smokin’, and scantily clad?

In my many years of work, many women complain about the women they work with and demand only email communication with them.

Jodie Foster’s directorial debut, “Little Man Tate,” was a terrific movie. She did a great job directing it.

Haven’t seen her other helming efforts.

Same here. Only about 5% of women I’ve come across have been good leaders. The rest have been political whores and women all around me say the same thing, my wife included.

Want to destroy an organization, but a liberal in charge, and that includes 95% of women.

Before I watch a movie, I always make sure it wasn't directed by a woman.

</sarcasm>

Dopey leftwing lesbian airhead who came to fame by reading words put into her mouth by others. If there aren’t “enough” female directors, blame Hollywood. People in America don’t care that much who directs their movies. They just want a good story, good characters, and no left wing preachiness. Unfortunately leftwign lesbian directors like movies with the leftwing preachiness so of course nobody wants to see them.

I don’t know about others but I rarely know or care who’s the director of a movie I watch....
