Kristen Stewart on Gender Equality in Hollywood: 'Do Something' Instead of Complaining

Kristen Stewart has added her voice to the mix of those speaking about gender equality in Hollywood, telling those who are concerned about the issue to “go do something.”

“Instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something,” she said. “Go write something, go do something.”

“And that’s easy to say,” she continued. “Like, f–k, it’s hard to get movies made. It’s a huge luxury. Who gets to just make movies? But that subject is just so prevalently everywhere right now, and it’s boring.”

Stewart was visiting the Variety Studio in Sundance to promote her new film, “Certain Women,” directed by Kelly Reichardt and also starring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams.

(Correction: An earlier version of the text accompanying this video erroneously attributed Stewart’s comments to “diversity.” We have since clarified above that her comments were addressing gender equality.)

Variety Studio is sponsored by Fandango and presented by Dockers.
