“Someone once said, if you ever want something badly, set it free. If it comes back to you, then it’s yours forever. If it doesn’t, then it was never yours to begin with.”


“Ai đó từng nói: nếu bạn khát khao điều gì, hãy buông nó ra. Nếu nó quay lại, nó mãi mãi thuộc về bạn. Còn nếu không, bạn có cố giữ đến đâu cũng vô ích mà thôi.”

Cosmo crunches the numbers, examines which of the top 100 actors working today have worked (or not worked) with women directors

Overall, it appears that leading men are generally less likely to work with female directors in their peak salary years. Mark Wahlberg hasn’t acted in a film with a woman director since Penny Marshall gave him his first film role in 1994’s Renaissance Man. Nicolas Cage hasn’t acted in a film directed by a woman since Martha Coolidge gave him his first lead role in 1983’s low-budget Valley Girl. Russell Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Downey Jr., Adam Sandler, Denzel Washington, and Bruce Willis have not acted in a film directed by a woman in over two decades.
