Women directors don't get second chances: Longoria
Cannes: Actor Eva Longoria says women directors don't get second chances in Hollywood, and that needs fixing.
"Unfortunately, women don't get a second bite of the apple. So that is something we have to fix," Longoria said in a video posted on Variety's YouTube channel.
"If a female director fails, if her movie doesn't do well, then she can't direct. That's not the case," she said.
Longoria, who has a production house UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, finds it important for women to support each other. "It is important once the door is open and 'you are there' to leave the door open for other women."
On the work front, Longoria is excited about Dora and the Lost City of Gold, which is based on the popular animated series Dora the Explorer, aired in India on Nick Jr.
