“Women inevitably have to work a little bit harder to be heard. Hollywood is disgustingly sexist,” she tells Harper’s Bazaar. “It's crazy. It's so offensive it's crazy."

The actress, who often dodges the spotlight when she’s not busy promoting a new film, goes on to add that she doesn’t enjoy her celebrity status.

"Fame is the worst thing in the world,” she continues. “Especially if it's pointless. When people say, 'I want to be famous', Why? You don't do anything.”

Kristen isn’t the only star shining a light on sexism in Hollywood and Carey Mulligan recently spoke out too, telling Time Out: “In terms of the amount of interesting roles there are for women it's obviously massively sexist.

“There's a lack of material for women. A lack of great stories for women.”

Meanwhile, the living legend that is Meryl Streep has announced plans to fund a writing lab, that will work to fix the “absence of the female voice in narrative film”, by working with up-and-coming female creatives.
