The former 'Charmed' actress insists there are too many superhero films being made these days, and called for more "complex" motion pictures
Rose McGowan quit acting because it became "so boring" in front of the camera.
The former 'Charmed' star - who has given up being an actress to become a director - insists there are too many "tent pole" superhero films in the movie industry nowadays and has called for more "intelligent" and "complex" motion pictures.
In an Instagram post, she wrote: "Thoughts on the current state of tent pole films aka superheroes. I'd like to petition for other stories to be added to the slate. Where are the human stories? I don't want green goblins and tight outfits. I want intelligence, daring, work that drives society forward. I want a mirror, not every cliché regurgitated ad nauseum. From Scarface, to Lebowski, to M, to Anchor Man, to the sublime Carol, to Chinatown,to Sullivan's Travels-. Let's bring complexity back. Let's be the badasses we used to be. Open up the director's chair and it'll change. #hollywood #directing think of all the stories not on screen because women are blocked by the status quo. F**k the status quo. Honestly, it got so boring in front of the camera I had to quit. Boring often times egomaniacal tyrants not making art. Hmmm.. Why ever should that change? Add women. Change the conversation. Promote depth. (sic)"
The 42-year-old star commended director Todd Haynes for his work on romantic-drama movie 'Carol' - which tells the story of a female department store worker who falls for an older, married woman - praising him for "championing women" in the film.
She wrote: "PS thank you Todd Haynes for loving complex stories and championing women. It brings such instant depth to make a character female. Thank you for letting this complex woman see another complex woman's tale onscreen. I saw myself. A rare treat. (sic)"
