Chastain was slammed for talking ‘too much’ about gender equality

Los Angeles, March 2 (IANS) Actress Jessica Chastain, who has been a vocal supporter of gender equality, has revealed that she has faced some discouragement in raising the issue.

Chastain says she was once told by a director that she “talks too much about all of this women stuff”, reports

“I had one male director say to me that I talk too much about all of this ‘women stuff’. This is a person I love, and maybe he was concerned I would hurt my career,” Chastain told American Way magazine.

“I’m not attacking anyone. I’m trying to create more inclusiveness, compassion and empathy — which in turn makes better movies, better art,” she added.
