Women in Motion Highlights: Robin Wright, Salma Hayek, Diane Kruger and More

Robin Wright, Isabelle Huppert, Salma Hayek, Diane Kruger, and more joined Variety and Kering for their Women in Motion series at the Cannes Film Festival to comment on the state of women in the entertainment industry.

The talks covered such subjects as sexism in the industry, pay disparity, and more issues in Hollywood.

“The problem is, feminism today has become such derogatory or diva-like word,” said Wright. “Feminism means equality, period. Equal work, equal pay.”

“The movies that I’ve made with women are definitely more honest, especially for female characters,” commented Kruger. “I find that they are more profound and less one-note.”
