Jessica Alba seeks equality with male Hollywood starsAugust 7th, 2008 - 2:18 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Aug 7 (ANI): Competing with other actresses is not what American actress Jessica Alba is concerned about, as she believes that they should stand together and seek equality with their male counterparts.
Albas career as an actress has reached a height that puts her at par with the best in the industry, competing for the top roles with pals Cameron Diaz, Kate Hudson and Eva Mendes.
But instead of having a competitive streak or feeling threatened by her peers, she is urging them to stand up and demand equal pay and similar treatment to male actors.
“I”m not competitive with them (actresses). I root for all of them because we definitely don”t have equality with men in this business, Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“There are a lot more men making a lot more money and headlining movies than women, and the more of us who can come up and do that the better. I want my friends to produce, direct, act, write, all of it.
“I think being competitive defeats the whole female movement. I want to be encouraging to my girlfriends. Totally,” she added. (ANI)
