“Everybody’s always talking about female empowerment,” Cameron, 68, contado Robert Rodriguez in a recent conversation for Variedade‘s Directors on Directors series. “But what is such a big part of a woman’s life that we, as men, don’t experience? E eu pensei, 'Nós vamos, if you’re really going to go all the way down the rabbit hole of female empowerment, let’s have a female warrior who’s six months pregnant in battle.’ ”
Expanding further on Kate Winslet‘s character, Ronal, ele disse, “It doesn’t happen in our society — probably hasn’t happened for hundreds of years. But I guarantee you, back in the day, women had to fight for survival and protect their children, and it didn’t matter if they were pregnant.”
Cameron went on to note that “pregnant women are more capable of being a lot more athletic than we, as a culture, acknowledge.”
“eu pensei, ‘Let’s take the real boundaries off,’ ” ele adicionou. “Para mim, it was the last bastion that you don’t see. Mulher maravilha e Capitã Marvel — all these other amazing women come up, but they’re not moms and they’re not pregnant while they’re fighting evil.”

Despite praising Wonder Woman as “surpreendente” in his comments to Rodriguez, 54, Cameron previously called the character played by Gal Gadot “an objectified icon” in an August 2017 entrevista com O guardião, saying the latest interpretation era “a step backwards.”
Ele explicou, “Quero dizer, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. Para mim, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s.”
In her response to Cameron’s original comments, Mulher maravilha diretor Patty Jenkins noted that not every female character has to look “hard, troubled and tough to be strong.”
Avatar: The Way of Water is about Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri’s (Zoe Saldana) Após a morte de Son Zen em meio a notícias de Nick Cannon esperando o 8º bebê “the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure,” according to an official synopsis.
Falando com Entretenimento semanal for an interview published last week, Winslet, 47, said she thought it was “just so cool” for her character to be pregnant in the film.
“Jim has so much admiration for women and pregnant women and what pregnant women are capable of, and how pregnant women are actually much more resilient and physically capable than I think often people give us credit for or would expect,” disse o vencedor do Oscar, who is also mom to daughter Mia, 22, mais sons Joe, 18, e Bear, 9.
“The things we can achieve, Quero dizer, meu Deus, I don’t know a single pregnant woman who found out she was pregnant, sat down and did nothing,” Winslet added. “You just become kind of bionic; tu feel like you are absolutely superhuman. And so for Jim to really harness that quality and ability and put it into its Na’vi form, foi simplesmente incrível. I loved that so much.”
