The 53 years old American actress and musician, Parker posey, in a recent media conversation with co-actress Hari Nef opened up on the difficulties of female-centric stories on screen. Posy looked back on her decades in the Film industry and the “acutely male-dominated” cinema that seems to be dehazing.
Parker Posey and Nef co-star in the play “The Seagull/Woodstock, NY” by Thomas Bradshaw. Nef, the first transgender actress-model to land an international modelling contract, reflected on the barriers that remain to be broken in Hollywood.
She said during the conversation, “Your twenties are really intense, and then the culture shifts, and you’re like, ‘Where am I going to fit in? I’m going to play a vampire in “Blade: Trinity”? I never thought I’d see the day, but I’d like to work, and it’ll be interesting and then it drops into the 40s. It’s heartbreaking to realise how heavily male-dominated our stories are, especially as you mature as a person and as a woman.”
“I’m so fortunate as a middle-aged woman to be playing this part,” Posey continued. It’s fascinating to notice how quickly people demonise strong women, and how entertaining it is to see the worst in people. People enjoy referring to someone as a bitch. I mean, misogyny is still raging.” Posey and Nef co-star in the play “The Seagull/Woodstock, NY” by Thomas Bradshaw. Nef, the first transgender actress-model to land an international modelling contract, reflected on the barriers that remain to be broken in Hollywood.
As of Nef, “The transitions in the cultural context are primarily large cosmetic when it pertains to power and who gets the green light and who gets the sign-off for studio things. “I have no power over how I’m cast or how people perceive me,” the actress explained. “‘Bitch’ is frequently used as a synonym for intelligent, articulate, opinionated, queer, not conventionally feminine, or not conventionally beautiful.”
“I believe the ‘Barbie’ stuff happened because I didn’t play bitchy, dumb, or plastic in the audition,” the “And Just Like That” star continued. Greta Gerwig, the writer also director of “Barbie,” revealed that she “flipped out” over Nef’s audition tape for the upcoming Mattel film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.
A brief on Parker Posey and Hari Nef
Parker Posy has successfully carved out an undefinable profession since her days as the “it” girl of nineties indie cinema, as evidenced by her oddball 2018 book, “You’re on an Airplane: A Self-Mythologizing Memoir.”
Posey has played a number of memorable characters in Christopher Guest comedies, including the “Best in Show,” but she has also brought her offbeat rhythms to high-profile roles such as the flamboyant assistant district attorney Freda Black in the HBO Max mini-series “The Staircase” and the scheming Dr. Smith in the Netflix reboot of “Lost in Space.”
Hari Nef, 30, was cast as Gittel in the Amazon series “Transparent” just days after graduation from Columbia University in 2015. Nef, is the first publicly transgender woman to obtain a global modelling contract.
She also writes for various publications, performed in the Off-Broadway play “Des Moines” in December, and has two major projects coming up later this year: Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” film and the HBO series “The Idol,” in which she’ll appear alongside the Weekend and Lily-Rose Depp.
