American actors too asexual for movie roles: Michael Douglas

Los Angeles, July 9 (IANS) American actor Michael Douglas thinks British and Australian actors are taking American jobs because Hollywood’s current crop of stars aren’t masculine enough for most film roles.

“In the US, we have this relatively asexual or unisex area with sensitive young men and we don’t have many Channing Tatums or Chris Pratts, while the Aussies do. It’s a phenomena,” Duoglas told the Independent newspaper, reports variety.com.

Douglas said US actors are too obsessed with social media, which causes them to focus more on their public image than on honing their craft.

“There’s something going on with young American actors – both men and women – because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them,” he said.

“Clearly, it breaks down on two fronts. In Britain, they take their training seriously, while in the States, we’re going through a sort of social-media image-conscious thing rather than formal training. Many actors are getting caught up in this image thing, which is going on to affect their range,” he added.

Douglas will next be seen in “Ant-Man”, which will release on July 17.
