Carey Mulligan: No strong film roles for women
    2018-January-19  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CAREY MULLIGAN has spoken out about what she says is a lack of leading film roles for women.

The 32-year-old star of “Suffragette” and “The Great Gatsby” said she’s “fed up” with playing wives or girlfriends.

The Oscar-nominated actress is due to appear in a new BBC television series called “Collateral.”

Criticizing the movie world, she said opting for the small screen gave her the chance to play a “fully rounded, flawed, interesting characters.”

“I think for most of female actresses I know it’s just about going where the better writing is,” she said.

“Films have tended to provide a lot for men in terms of great leading roles and not so much for women.”

Talking about TV shows like HBO’s “Big Little Lies” she says television often created multiple roles for women whereas films struggle to squeeze in even one.

“I think it’s been led by the writing and the opportunities particularly for women.

“That’s certainly the case for me. I just want to play the most interesting, complicated, real person and interesting complicated real people in film are really, really rare.

“I’ve done that a lot and it’s not fun and this is the opportunity to play a fully rounded, flawed interesting person.” (SD-Agencies)
