Megan Fox News 2016: Actress Says Women Are Still Disadvantaged In Hollywood [VIDEO]
Megan Fox has gone on the record once again to let everyone know that she's more than just another pretty face on the big screen. That's why the Hollywood actress says the industry is still mostly dominated by men and that's why women are having a hard time pulling any of the strings that are behind the scenes, or where it counts for that matter.
"This is a male-dominated industry, so it's still sort of colored through the lens of how men view women in life," she told SFX magazine in a new interview this week (via WJLA). "But I think it's definitely moving in a positive direction, and I think when we have more female filmmakers then we'll have more movies with female leads."
Fox added, "But we also need more female writers. Because you need someone who understands the psychology of a woman to be able to write a woman well."
What's more, Fox also says that she's very selective when it comes to the roles she chooses to play and why she prefers to do comic book films rather than dramas.
She explained, "I'm not necessarily very passionate about acting per se. I don't feel validated by being on a set or making a movie. I have a lot of fun making these movies, but it's not a representation of my innermost being."
Fox's latest box office movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is in theaters now.
