"I think it's 100% an issue," she said, specifically about sexism in Hollywood. "But I also think there are so many things that are coming against so many people."

"I will never experience what it's like to be an African-American in the industry. I'll never know what it's like to be a man growing up in this industry and having these standards of manhood and boyhood," she added. "I think that we all have our things that we need to fight and come up against that's not fair. And some of us have it significantly worse than others."
