The 70th Cannes Film Festival ended today, and Jessica made her final appearance at the Closing Gala ceremony, held at Palais des Festivals wearing a custom Zuhair Murad gown, Piaget jewelry, and Christian Louboutin shoes.
After the jury deliberations a press conference was held with members and Jessica shared her point of view about how women was portrait in the films.
“I can’t really speak to female directors, but in regard to female characters, I’ve watched 20 films in 10 days for the first time and the one thing I take away is how the world views women, and for me the female characters represented were quite disturbing. There are some exceptions, but I was surprised about the representation of female characters on screen. I do hope that when we involve more female storytellers, that more of the women I know in my day-to-day life who have their agencies; that they don’t react to men around them, that they have their own points of views.”
