Actor Jodie Foster feels Hollywood has a problem with female directors and, like Europe, it should open up.

“I said it and I’ll keep saying it - I want to direct and I will direct more than I acted,” Foster told

She said a fraction of the film industry has been the “last area” that needs to see a change. Europe, she said, has always been ahead in terms of having women directors.

“It’s America that’s the problem, and it has been for a very long time. We need to bang the head of America to let them know that it needs female directors. Just look at Wonder Woman,” Foster said during the premiere of her film Hotel Artemis.

The movie also features Sterling K. Brown, Sofia Boutella, Charlie Day, Brian Tyree Henry and Dave Bautista.
