Olivia Wilde weighs in on different standards for men and women in Hollywood

Olivia Wilde has recently spoken up on how male directors in Hollywood would not answer questions about their movie’s cast on a chat show on Wednesday.

According to Insider, Wilde appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she was questioned about the rumours related to her debutante directorial movie Don’t Worry Darling.

“I don't feel like my male director colleagues are answering questions about their cast,” remarked the actress.

The host of the show, who grilled Wilde for Harry Styles and Chris Pine spit-gate, feud with Florence Pugh and firing Shia LaBeouf, agreed with the movie-maker and said, “These are not questions to give a director.”

“They should be talking about the movie itself, but these are the kinds of questions that have sort of consumed this movie, and I'm giving into an appetite by asking you these questions,” she continued.

Wilde noted that there are different standards created for women and men.

“They’re praised for being tyrannical, they can be investigated time and time again, and it still doesn't overtake conversations about their actual talent or about the films themselves,” she asserted.

Wilde expressed her frustration to see media and people “sidelining” her in a way that they “don’t do to men”.

Meanwhile, the movie has been released in theatres today.
