Jessica Chastain Preps Hollywood for Her Twilight Years

Jessica Chastain, 31, tells Glamour that she’s really supportive of women in Hollywood and of Meryl Streep but that they should stop hiring Streep for everything.

“I’m really, really supportive of women in Hollywood. I love Meryl Streep. She’s such an incredible actress. But I feel like she’s the only one in her age group who gets those parts. I’d like to see Jessica Lange in a movie again, you know? Or Susan Sarandon. Why isn’t Viola Davis a lead in a film? She’s one of the greatest actresses alive,” she said of her fellow famous starlets.

Jessica Lange doesn’t need to be in any movies because has Chastain watched American Horror Story?

“And where are the Asian actors and actresses? I’m not saying, ‘We don’t want movies about men.’ I’m just saying, ‘Come on, all the men I know love women. So let’s also have some stories about these women. Let’s write something for them, guys — and let’s make room for women writers, too.'”

Asian actors and actresses in Hollywood are playing the same racial stereotypes that they have for the past 50 years. It’s not like they ever left. Just look at shows like Two Broke Girls. That’s where they are.
