The 'Suffragette' actress calls out double standards in Hollywood
The 33-year-old said that she had previously been made to feel like she should lose weight and spoke of the pressures on young actresses to accept jobs that they wouldn’t normally be comfortable with.
She said: “For me the weight thing is a metaphor for control. Making women feel weak because they’re so insecure so they won’t disagree with the director or studio. Women feel afraid they’re going to lose their careers, afraid of being fat or ageing. If you can’t get into the dresses, it is a really big deal. I just want to be employed by people who love me as I am.”
