At Cannes festival panel, French Oscar winner discusses importance of turning down film roles and reflects on Scorsese’s ‘very feminine side’.


During a panel session at the Cannes film festival, the French Oscar winner recalled a conversation with Spielberg, a director she said she greatly admired, about why he rarely centers his films on female characters.

According to a recent study by the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School of Journalism, in the most popular films of 2007 to 2014, women had less than a third of speaking parts. A report from the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego State University, meanwhile, found that women directed just 7% of Hollywood’s top 250 films in 2014.
