British actress Eleanor Tomlinson, who has been highly impressed
by the Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence's performances, went
all praises for the actress, says she has opened up a new horizon
for other women actresses in the films.
Poldark star Tomlinsonis all impressed by Lawrence, mainly
because of the fact that she has shown the world that women can
spearhead movie genres basically associated with all men stars
alongside. And that it can be a diverse category from just
depicting love interests in the movie.
"Jennifer has really opened up a whole category of films for
women. There are now superhero movies fronted by women and I think
directors generally are moving away from that stereotypical woman's
role that is just about being flirted with by a man before falling
into his arms," she said.
Tomlinson also said thatshe has become bored with
thetheme of women in distress in the movie. She is now happy
that the scenario is changing and that women are now being casted
as the lead protagonists, with exclusive storylines made for
"I'm not interested in being the damsel in distress; I want
someone who has her own storyline and her own mission - not a woman
who, to use a comedy term, is just there to provide the feed line
to someone else's joke." Tomlinson added.
