LOS ANGELES: Actress Jessica Chastain, addressing gender inequality in Hollywood, says being the only girl on a film set, one can feel like a “sexual object”.


The 39-year-old actress says gender equality is important so that chances of someone feeling bullied or humiliated are less.

“When you have both genders represented, then you have a healthier point of view. You don’t feel a hierarchy; you don’t have anyone feeling like they are being left out or bullied or humiliated. Sometimes, being the only girl on a set, you can feel like a sexual object,” she said.
