Saldana recalls brush with sexism in Hollywood

Los Angeles, June 17 (IANS) Actress Zoe Saldana has recalled an incident when she got a dose of sexism in Hollywood.

She reminisced a particular incident when a producer called her to tell her to stop being a “difficult b*tch”, reports


“(He told me) ‘I hired you to look good in your underwear holding a gun’. I was told walking into this project that they really wanted me for the part, and that any input or ideas I had to please share them,” Saldana told Allure magazine.

“That’s what I was doing, and this producer was so bothered by the fact that he had to disrupt his vacation to call me and tell me to stop being a difficult b*tch. I thought, Wow, it is real. It really happens,” added the 37-year-old.
