Eva Longoria: Female Directors Don't Get Second Chances in Hollywood
Actress Eva Longoria says that the directors do not have a second chance in Hollywood, and that needs to be fixed.
"Unfortunately, women do not get a second bite of the apple, so that's something we have to fix," Longoria said in a video posted on Variety's YouTube channel.
"If a director fails, if her film does not do well, then she can not direct, that's not the case," he said.
Longoria, who has a production company UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, considers it important for women to support each other. "It is important that once the door is open and 'you are there' leave the door open for other women."
The actress said: "I produce and direct a show called 'Grand Hotel.' I say I want a director of photography and when the contract is made, she makes sure that the camera crew hires the women. We filled those positions first with women and then with people of color ... Because we have to start building this talent flow ".
On the job front, Longoria is enthusiastic about "Dora and the Lost City of Gold," which is based on the popular animated series "Dora the Explorer," aired in India by Nick Jr.
The live-action adaptation follows Dora's life as she joins a group of teenagers to save her parents (rehearsed by Longoria and Michael Peña) and solve the mystery of a lost Inca civilization.
