    After a lot of struggles for gender equality and feminism, women finally started to get the equal rights that they truly deserve, in Hollywood and elsewhere. Zoe Saldaña thinks that women should start unlocking more doors of opportunities for themselves.

    Zoe Saldaña says that future representation in the film industry is dependent on women supporting women and taking up a stand for themselves. She said, “We need more female CEOs. We need more women sitting on boards. Because those are the gatekeepers“.

    Zoe wants women to realize their true potential. She added, “We need the keys that unlock those doors. And once those women are there, don’t just be happy and feel so lucky that you’re the only woman sitting at the table. Get three men to get up.”

    She shared her experience of working with James Cameron. Zoe said, “I’m like a little girl from Queens, New York. To be able to be in a James Cameron movie, and for that to catapult me into a full-blown career,”.

    She continued, “It just happened and I took every opportunity. I opened every door that felt unlocked to me, walked in. But then here I am, like 10 years later, reaping the benefits over and over again of films that were so successful that became franchises, and it’s time consuming”.

And then I have people that you trust and you make a path and you sort of go, ‘You’re gonna tell me the truth. I’m a big girl. I’m wearing my big girl pants. So you can just like give it to me because I will take it.”

    Further, she also talked about her movie ‘Emilia Pérez‘ which drew rave reviews and a lot of appreciation from the audience at Cannes. “To be here and you guys receiving it and people being deeply moved, I’m speechless,” the actress added.

And I’m not being a narcissist. I just started to trust me, like when I’m not making art, I’m consuming it. I curate it in my life. That’s what we do. And [‘Emilia Pérez’ director] Jacques [Audiard] is an artist that I consume a great deal.”
