Melissa Leo slams Hollywood for 'appalling' portrayal of women

Los Angeles: Actor Melissa Leo has blasted Hollywood for an “appalling and unhealthy” portrayal of women.

The 61-year-old, who made her acting debut as Linda Warner in the US soap opera back in 1984, stated that she wants to take advantage of changing attitudes by taking on roles and stories she couldn’t play earlier in her career, Female First reported.

“I think we are all acutely aware that the portrait of women in film and television coming out of the United States for probably all of my career has been appalling and unhealthy,” she said in an interview.

“So, I am seeking in the final chapter of my career, over the next 10 to 20 years, to try to tell stories about women that are believable and show us in a broader light,” she added.
