Brie Larson Calls For More Diversity Among Film Critics

'Am I saying I hate white dudes? No, I am not.'

Brie Larson has called for more diversity within film criticism, following a study that found just 20 percent of the critics who reviewed 2017's top box-office films were women.

The Oscar-winning actress was speaking at the Women In Film + Lucy Awards event in Los Angeles, United States, where she used Ava DuVernay's recent Disney film, "A Wrinkle In Time", as an example of a film that has suffered because of the lack of diversity when it comes to critics.
