“Some people had taken my speech and then made it about awards — like SAG Awards or Oscars. That’s not what my speech was about. To me awards are just a reflection. It’s just a symptom of the disease and the disease is in the industry. If we had more diversity in our films it would be reflected in diversity in the nominees.” - Jessica Chastain
Ifeel like young girls are told they have to be a princess, and be delicate and fragile, and that’s bullshit. I identify much more with the idea of being a warrior, being a fighter. If I was going to be a princess, I’d be a warrior princess, definitely. I think women are scared of feeling powerful and strong and brave sometimes. I think you’ve got to embrace it.
