Natalie Dormer believes male actors are just as objectified as their female counterparts in the TV and film industry.
Dormer said, “Welcome to being an actress under a certain age. But, you know, there are sensitive men in the industry as well — writers, directors, producers.”
“It’s not just men against women, actors suffer from it, too. Wasn’t there a thing about Aidan Turner in ‘Poldark’? It’s a visual medium, so to a certain extent, you get judged on the way you look. My personal experience has been to work on phenomenal jobs in which the men are objectified as much as the women.”
The 36-year-old star, who got her breakthrough as an actor 11 years ago when she was cast as Anne Boleyn in racy TV drama ‘The Tudors’, said she had no idea how raunchy the show would be at that time.
The actor went on to star in the critically acclaimed HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ as Margaery Tyrell. She also bagged a role in The Hunger Games Trilogy’s last two films, ‘Mockingjay Part-1’ and ‘Mockingjay Part-2’.
She will be seen next in ‘Patient Zero’ alongside Stanley Tucci and Matt Smith.
