Director and producer Nancy Meyers got real about the sexist attitudes towards"chick flicks" in a conversation with HuffPost Live on Tuesday.
"It's really hard for me to talk about," Meyers, of "Something's Gotta Give" and "The Holiday," fame told host Alyona Minkovski. "But I suppose people dismiss 'chick flicks' because women go to them, which is a really difficult thing to hear. It's dismissive of our gender and what we may find interesting, and maybe what's in [the film] is something [women] relate to."
According to Meyers, today's male-dominated film industry gives men the "opportunity to sort of say, 'That's not good enough' or 'That's not as good as...'" to woman-centric movies -- and something needs to change.
