Scarlett Johansson pleased by more women on sets

Los Angeles, Dec 7 (IANS) Actress Scarlett Johansson is pleased to see more females working in Hollywood.

The “Captain America: Civil War” star is glad to see more women working on film sets as she feels it was basically a bunch of dudes running movies ten years ago, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“We see more female directors, more women in various departments on set. If you looked around a film set even 10 years ago, it was basically a bunch of dudes; maybe in the wardrobe department or in the hair and makeup department there would be women,” Johansson said.

“Now you see more female camera assistants, cinematographers, grips. It’s nice to have a diverse group of people so that it doesn’t become so one-note – to have a female energy on set, to have different types of people and different vibes, and a more balanced creative environment,” she added.

Meanwhile, Johansson earlier said that she found it “disappointing” to be named the highest grossing actress of all time and was upset that no other women managed a place in the top 10.

“It’s exciting to be the only woman in this category but it’s kind of disappointing actually to be the only woman in this category. That was a little bit of a surprise to me,” she said.
