The star, who says there is definitely more “female energy” in the industry, explained to Turning Points magazine: “We see more female directors, more women in various departments on set.
If you looked around a film set even 10 years ago, it was basically a bunch of dudes; maybe in the wardrobe department or in the hair and makeup department there would be women.
Now you see more female camera assistants, cinematographers, grips. It’s nice to have a diverse group of people so that it doesn’t become so one-note – to have a female energy on set, to have different types of people and different vibes, and a more balanced creative environment.”
Meanwhile, the Avengers star had recently confessed it was disappointing to be named the highest-grossing actress while no other woman appeared in the top 10.
She shared: “It’s exciting to be the only woman in this category [but] it’s kind of disappointing actually to be the only woman in this category. That was a little bit of a surprise to me.”
And while Scarlett is upset about a gender pay gap that exists in Hollywood to this day, she is fortunate to make a great living doing what she loves.
“There’s something icky about me having that conversation unless it applies to a greater whole. I am very fortunate, I make a really good living and I’m proud to be an actress who’s making as much as many of my male peers at this stage.
I think every woman has [been underpaid]. But unless I’m addressing it as a larger problem, for me to talk about my own personal experience with it feels a little obnoxious. It’s part of a larger conversation about feminism in general,” she explained.
