#MeToo is ´here to stay´, says Thrones queen Clarke

Yelm Cinemas Star Wars Solo Premiere 13 501st Legion Queen Emilia Clarke Is Having an Absolute Blast on the Cannes Red Carpet This Year

"I'm gonna tell you how it feels to play a woman. (You can ask me) How does it feel to play a female lead in a big blockbuster movie? or How does it feel to play someone with power?" said the actor who plays the role of a Crimson Dawn gang member, named Qi'ra, in the much anticipated Star Wars movie. The end. That's it. Take the strong out of it. Find another adjective, dammit!

Just hours earlier, Emilia stunned in a white ensemble at the Kering Women in Motion photocall. If it's not strong, what is it? "Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option?" she said. There's a "weak" option?

"You break the mold that's put into place and there's a huge amount of work that needs to go into addressing all of the things that need to be addressed".

The actress, who has a prominent role in "Solo: A Star Wars Story", said the topic "doesn't even bear having a conversation" and asked journalists and publications alike to "please" give up using the word "strong" to describe a female lead.

"Let's just be women".

The Ukrainian prosecutor general's spokesperson Larisa Sargan said that the prosecution would insist Vyshinsky be arrested. RIA Novosti Ukraine chief Kyrylo Vyshynsky was detained.

"It will be what none of us think it will be", she cryptically said. For an instance, she pointed out at male leads, who were rarely referred to as "strong men", unless they are strong physically.

"Walking on set, I felt a difference in the room that was really interesting to navigate but then you kind of ease into it and you say 'this is it!'".

"Or just ask boys how it feels to be strong", Clarke replied.

Gender discrimination will not disappear overnight but the #MeToo and Time's Up movements are "here to stay", Games of Thrones star Emilia Clarke said Tuesday. However, it's pretty chastely - violent passion and the chemistry between the stars only on the screen, but in real life, Harington, who is about to marry his other partner on the series, odd women don't ever look (I hope). So when there would come a job where that was maybe being discussed, again, it's shocking - actually shocking.

Speaking about pay negotiations, she added: "You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry. If you're only asking women, it's like we're just show ponies".
