Gwyneth Paltrow Blasts Sexist Hollywood

Screen beauty Gwyneth Paltrow has slammed Hollywood as an old fashioned industry run solely by men.

The Oscar-winning actress detests the way female writers, directors, and actors are marginalized by chauvinistic producers and insists Hollywood is behind miles behind the rest of the world.

And she is infuriated by movies that celebrate men's sexual prowess, but neglect female sexuality.

She says, "The men in Hollywood make it hard for women. I really believe that. What it means is that it's kind of like the old-boy industries. It's mostly run by men.

"A lot of women writers in Hollywood write from their own experience and those experiences get so kind of homogenized (by producers) that what started as a core idea from somebody's life often becomes a movie that you've seen a number of times.

"There's no reason why, if there's Wedding Crashers for boys, there can't be something really funny yet intelligent for women, that has something to say for women."
