Christian Bale sharing his thoughts on “White Guys” Running Hollywood
During a talk for the AOL Build series, Christian Bale shared his thoughts on those who are running the entire Hollywood. He acknowledged the fact that the world is run by “white guys.” Christian explained, “Our culture will be so much richer the day that we stop saying, ‘Hey, it’s all white dudes who are running things.’ Whether that be Hollywood, whether that be Washington.”
The 43-year-old actor wants people to embrace the diversity both in Hollywood and wider society, as he believes it will give richer outcomes and the film industry will have “more interesting stories” to showcase to the world.
“We’re going to get, in Hollywood, so much better films and so much more interesting stories being told and America will become the America that the rest of the world sees it as, that makes it unique that we recognise makes this such a beautiful, brilliant country and not to ruin that,” he told.
Christian went on to express his purpose for moving to America at the age of 17 and why is his family ( two children, Emmeline and Joseph, with his wife Sibi Blazic ) living in this country. He praised America by saying it is a “country of inclusion.” He went on to add, “It’s the reason why I moved here… It’s the reason why my kids have American accents.”
