I'm sure she's lovely - I haven't heard bad things about her generally - but she is a boring actress, I'm sorry. I don't know why studios tried so hard to make her happen.

I can see where one may think her a boring actress, she isn’t necessarily flashy or melodramatic but she’s quite good overall I think. Also, she did seem to come out of nowhere but I wouldn’t really say she was shoved down everyone’s throats. Her roles were mainly like, indie prestige projects and I doubt the general public even knows who she is.

The thing is -- as an actress, she's good. But she doesn't have that spark or that screen presence that makes her memorable. That's always been her downfall.

what is she even saying? she doesn't address the criticism at all and then her "only concern" doesn't even make sense. yes, that's what we want too! but also that transgender people can be included in movies that portray their experience.

In her defence a little I'm pretty sure the "my only concern" bit is just the wrong use of wording (English isn't her first language)....She's trying to say that she think that trans people should also be cast in cis roles too. It's just a weird choice of wording.

But yeah, she really didn't need to bring this up, but it's also not her place to address it either, so I'm not mad mad about it.

yeah, while I was reading it, I understood what she meant but it was definitely a strange wording, especially when coupled with the overall lack of addressing the criticism
