I’ve experienced sexism in Hollywood: Emma Watson

LOS ANGELES: Actress Emma Watson feels the disparity between the number of female directors she has worked with and her male helmers is a proof of the inequalities that exist for women working in movies.


Watson, 25, has never been shy about expressing her distaste for the unequal treatment of women in Hollywood.

“I have experienced sexism in that I have been directed by male directors 17 times and only twice by women. Of the producers I’ve worked with 13 have been male and only one has been a woman,” tha actress said.

Watson, however, admitted she has been lucky as compared to other women who have been turned away simply because of their gender, whether as an actress or director “I have always insisted on being treated equally and have generally won that equality,” she explained.
