Kate Bosworth is speaking out about the sexist way movies are cast

Sexism in Hollywood is a familiar topic. (Unfortunately.) And now, Kate Bosworth is speaking out about the sexism that goes into casting a movie. Because in a not-so-shocking twist, filmmakers usually cast the male lead before the female lead. And in an interview with People, Kate explained why this casting choice is regressive.

From her early movies like Blue Crush and Win A Date With Tad Hamilton, to her upcoming role playing Sharon Tate in a new biopic, Kate Bosworth has had a long career. And that means she’s had plenty of experience with sexism in Hollywood.

First of all, Bosworth expressed her anger with the Hollywood casting system.

"The one thing I heard on every single film — and I’m telling you there isn’t an exception — whenever I’m up for a role, really no matter how big or small, the answer that I always get from anyone who’s casting me [is], ‘We have to cast the guy first," she explained.

And there’s just one exception to the rule.

“Every single one, there is no exception, Bosworth said. “Unless I’m producing it.

ICYMI, Bosworth has produced a few movies, including Nona and Hot Bot. Consequently, she helps bring equality to the set.

Always casting the man first isn’t necessarily the best game plan. And Bosworth pointed that out.

Furthermore, she explained how she wants to change the game. Because that’s something we’re definitely here for.

“It’s important to say, ‘Let’s look at this in an equal way. Let’s look at who to cast or who to bring on or who to collaborate with because they’re great or because they’re right for it," Bosworth said.

And that’s not all. In addition, Bosworth spoke out about how she wants to be a leader in changing the Hollywood for the better.

“I’ve never been a very good passenger, she said. “I like to try to move the dial and be proactive and be aggressive and to effect change. That’s just in my DNA. So the fact that I’m able to participate in that in my industry, I feel really grateful.
