Why are men so much more attractive than women in movies?
Posted Mar 07, 2018 02:05:46 The female lead in the latest blockbuster movie “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is an actress who’s clearly not looking for attention.
“She’s a bit of a tomboy, but she’s a pretty sweet lady,” actress Maggie Gyllenhaal tells The Hindu.
“We’re all in our little bubble.
We don’t even want to go out with other women.”
The actress, whose character, Bilbo Baggins, plays a Hobbit, says she has had to adapt her acting style and her character’s look to fit in with her male friends.
“I’ve got to be a bit more assertive, a bit taller and a bit wider,” she said.
“It’s really hard to go up against the guys when you’re a woman.”
The movie was released in November 2015.
In the new trailer, Gyllenshal is seen wearing her trademark black trousers, white shirt, white skirt and black bow tie.
She says she wanted to look like a hobbit, and is not a big fan of the Hobbit films.
“They don’t know how to dress up, and I don’t want to dress like a Hobbit,” she added.
According to Gyllinhaal, she is not looking to make the film into a feminist film, but rather an allegory of gender roles and how gender stereotypes shape society.
“The movies are so good because they are so funny and they are about women,” she remarked.
“In our culture, women are treated as objects and men are treated like men.
So we are constantly fighting with each other, so this is a way to tell the world that women are people and that there is something really good and beautiful in us.”
She added, “The best thing about it is that it’s a movie about women and it is also about a man.
And it has a female lead who is actually very strong, who can actually be funny, and who also is a little bit of an asshole.
It’s the best film I have ever seen.”
