Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Kate Beckinsale

"Any script that is badly written, written under the gun for a start date that's not ready, which happens quite a lot, ill-conceived, if it then goes badly for the woman in the lead, I think there is that residual thing of how women in the lead roles of big movies don't work, whereas any movie where the script sucks doesn't work, and it's much more tempting to blame that," she said at the film's press conference in Toronto. "Tons of rotten movies with the man in the lead but it doesn't seem to get blamed on."
