In the magazine the ladies talk about nudity in screen, being seen as divas and more
SeeÂ excerpts below:
Kirsten, on showing her bare body in movies and on TV: â€œIâ€™m pretty much down for anything if the director is good.â€
Jennifer, on being called â€œa divaâ€: â€œI got a moniker of being â€˜the diva,â€™ which I never felt I deserved â€” which I donâ€™t deserve â€” because Iâ€™ve always been a hard worker, on time, doing what Iâ€™m supposed to do, and getting that label because you reach a certain amount of success â€¦Or even sometimes I felt crippled to voice my opinion, especially because certain directors and the boysâ€™ club that they form can make you feel like, â€œOh, I canâ€™t say anything.â€ I was always fascinated by how I could see [a man] being late or being belligerent to a crew and it being totally acceptable; meanwhile, Iâ€™d show up 15 minutes late and be berated. And you watch this happen over and over and over again. Like, weâ€™re not allowed to have certain opinions or even be passionate about something, or theyâ€™ll be like, â€˜God, sheâ€™s really difficult.â€™ Itâ€™s like, â€˜Am I? Am I difficult because I care?â€™â€
Sarah, on what has changed for women in the industry: â€œI think very little has changed. Whatâ€™s maybe changed is the fact that thereâ€™s more of a conversation happening about it, but I donâ€™t know that thereâ€™s been that much forward motion. I mean, I havenâ€™t had a female director on American Horror Story in the six years that Iâ€™ve been on the show.â€
