But I agree with you. It bothers me that I’m always told that I do strong female characters. When in reality, I look at my characters and I feel like they were all broken. They all came from a very devastating past. They were trying to achieve something, they had hope, and they wanted to get someplace, like everything other character that has a meaningful and relevant arc in the story.
It’s because we don’t really know women. We don’t write women accurately. We don’t see women the way that we should see women as a society, as a human race. When you see a real woman, you shouldn’t be saying she’s strong, you should be saying she’s real.
I’m not saying that Gamora is an exception, but you look at my character in Columbiana, and she’s stealthy, she’s agile, she’s physical. But even if I wasn’t physically agile, she would still carry the baggage of whatever happened in my childhood. And I handle myself in the way that I feel a woman should be. I don’t create it. It’s just something that comes natural.
So when people think they are paying me a compliment, in reality what we are saying as a society and as an art society, is that we need to focus more on the real aspect of what a woman is, and not the superficial cosmetic features of a woman as a muse to inspire us to create calendar girls. To create bombshells. To create serviceable characters, beautiful paintings of the girl with a pearl earring: if there’s nothing there behind it, it’s just her face - what’s the story?"
No words can express the cuteness I just witnessed!
"I think what’s important is when you create a foundation for a character. For Uhura, I gave her air for my own lungs. I worked it with the original director. She talks a certain way, she moves a certain way. Backstory is everything for me. When in doubt you always go to the backstory. It doesn’t matter whether you go for a sequel or a threequel or whatever, you go to that backstory. I love them. I love creating backstories from when my character was five, even though nobody will ever hear it. It’s the only time I use a journal to write, is when I do it through the eyes of a different person. And I create a world for them. That’s so meaningful for me."
