Jessica Chastain Spoke Out On The 'Disturbing' Treatment of Women In Movies


Hollywood has typecast women into some pretty undesirable roles for the past century or so, and any proactive role nowadays almost has to be defended while presenting to the general public.

Jessica Chastain has always been pretty vocal when it comes to the "depressing" state of women in film, along with her own career struggles when she was an up-and-coming actress.

The Interstellar star was selected as one of the jurors for the Cannes Film Festival, a role that requires you to watch a buttload of films in a short amount of time. (And if being able to binge watch movies is the only requirement to become a juror, I think I'm pretty damn qualified, so holla at me, Cannes.)

After watching 20 films in 10 days, Chastain used one word to describe how women are represented in cinema.
