Females want other females to be really strong, so there are a whole lot of scripts that are basically just male parts renamed as a girl. It’s like, ‘That is not a woman. That is not the strength of a woman. That is just a woman trying to imitate a man’.
“It’s a pretty fucking odd thing to want to pretend to be another person, and then have a lot of other people who watch you do that. You have this experience of reading something, and if you don’t bring it to life, you’re basically deleting it. Every day of shooting you’re depriving the world of having that. The responsibility is amazing."
