Laura Dern On The Low-Key Feminist Moment From 'Jurassic Park' You Might've Missed

Laura Dern actually is *similar to us* ― she loves a excellent feminist film scene. 

In an Aug. 28 interview, the “Big Little Lies” actress spoke with WWD about being a unmarried mom to her two youngsters and, in fact, “Wonder Woman.”

“I loved seeing it — and I really loved seeing it with my 12-year-old daughter,” Dern mentioned of the box-office ruin “Wonder Woman.” “People are like, ‘Well, you can’t turn this kind of film into a statement.’ It’s like, no. You infiltrate every story that you tell. It can be a traditional movie, but you respond to something different.”

Dern added that she were given to just do that for her function within the 1993 “Jurassic Park” reverse of Jeff Goldblum.   

“We did it on ‘Jurassic Park’ ― there was a rather feminist line in response to something Jeff Goldblum says about ‘man creates dinosaurs, and dinosaurs eat man.’ Something like that. And then I look back and say the line, ‘Yeah ― and woman inherits the earth’ and that was such a big deal,” Dern mentioned. “It was like here it is, we’re in this formulaic, big movie and it’s this fabulous, fun, feminist moment.”

Dern defined to WWD that 12-year-old ladies, like her daughter, had been looking at “Jurassic Park” and heard that delicate feminist line ― and that’s essential. 

“Then there are 12-year-old girls watching the movie and they hear that, and it’s one line,” Dern mentioned. “For years it was ‘Oh, well that’s more for boys, because it’s a dinosaur movie,’ and that’s what they used to say about ‘Star Wars,’ and now because there are female icons in it, all the girls want to see it as much as boys. So yeah, it’s really exciting to consider with every story that you tell. Every film I get to be part of, [I consider] how we can make it truly relatable, to all of us.”
