Sexism virtually chased the liked Sandra Bullock out of Hollywood.
In a contemporary interview with USA Today the actress published that she had a “wake-up moment” all over her occupation when she learned she used to be being discriminated towards as a result of she’s a lady.
“I was like, ‘What is this feeling? Why do I feel so (expletive)?’” the “Ocean’s 8” famous person mentioned. “‘Oh, my God, I’m being treated this way because I have a vagina.’”
Bullock, 53, mentioned she used to be raised to imagine lady may do anything else a person may. So when she encountered sexism within the place of work, she used to be very shocked.
“My mother raised me like, ‘You don’t need to get married, you forge your own path. You make your own money, and be your own person,’” she mentioned. “And I literally went out into the world thinking there was no disparity, that everyone was equal, and I can do whatever a man can do.”
She added that it used to be indubitably “a hard pill to swallow” when she learned that the trade used to be no longer proof against sexism.
“It was hard for me, because I walked with blinders on through life and got to where I (felt) like I was less than because I was a woman. And that was a hard pill to swallow,” Bullock mentioned. “I had a lot of sadness from that. I was like, ‘Wow, maybe I need to step out of here. Maybe I need to do something else for a living.’ And that was in the middle of when I was getting work ― I didn’t want to be a part of that world where there was that experience.”
