Actress Julianne Moore on 'Gender Parity' in Films: 'I Do Believe in Quotas'

I’m really beginning to think that you need to pass some kind of socialist or communist moron test to be a big star in the Hollywood cult. They say the most ridiculous things that it makes you want smash your head against a table. But, we shouldn’t get too angry. These people are paid to portray people they’re not, essentially lie. Just take them for the clowns they make themselves out to be and get your popcorn, while pointing and laughing.

Actress Julianne Moore made some very authoritarian comments concerning what she calls “gender parity” during an event at the Cannes Film Festival. Moore apparently doesn’t believe in free will or giving a job to most qualified person, because she actually said that she does “believe in quotas.”

Watch Moore’s comments below:


What Moore said is so mind-numbingly stupid that I feel like I would be doing a disservice by not giving all of you a transcript of her comments:

We will not have gender parity unless everybody is cooperating. Women are not a special interest group. We’re 52 percent of the global population. In order to restore the balance, I do think that there will be, that we will need some measures to change our culture.

We will have to make major changes to reach parity. That’s just a fact. So, I do believe in quotas. I really do. I believe in trying to level the playing field for everybody regardless of their gender or their culture or ethnicity. You have to open doors.

Nevermind the fact that the 58-year-old Moore has enjoyed a 35-year career that has spanned the overwhelming majority of her adult life.

The Associated Press (AP) engaged in a little deceptive reporting by stating that a San Diego State University study on women in film said that “women made up 8% of directors on the top 250 films at the U.S. box office last year, down from 11 percent the year before.”

While that statistic is true, the AP left out the full summary of the study which also claimed that “women comprised 20% of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors, and cinematographers working on the top 250 domestic growing films.”

“This represents an increase of 2 percentage points from 18% in 2017,” an excerpt from the study stated.

The AP conveniently left it out because the full statistics didn’t feed their Julianne Moore-driven narrative. No wonder the AP didn’t provide a link to study. I will.

If Moore is so concerned about more women becoming directors and writers in the film industry, maybe she should lead by example instead of only being able to take direction from actual filmmakers. That would prevent her from sounding like an authoritarian loon in talking about implementing quotas in order to force “equality” and diversity.
