Actresses like Helen Mirren and Patricia Arquette have openly spoken out against sexism in Hollywood, and now Kristen Stewart is chiming in as well. In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, the actress noted that “women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist. It’s crazy. It’s so offensive it’s crazy.”

Stewart’s comments come on the heels of similar ones made by Carey Mulligan, who decried the lack of female-driven films in a recent interview. Mulligan, who called Hollywood “massively sexist,” lamented the fact that her forthcoming film Suffragette took so long to get to the big screen. “It’s such a reflection of our film industry that the story hasn’t been told yet,” Mulligan said of the feature, which focuses on women fighting for the right to vote in Britain.
