James Cameron says that his new film Avatar: La via dell'acqua adds to the female-empowerment space in a way that hasn’t quite been done before.

Everybody’s always talking about female empowerment,” Cameron, 68, detto Robert Rodriguez in a recent conversation for Varietà‘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 ho pensato, 'Bene, 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 Winsletil suo carattere, Ronaldo, Egli ha detto, “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 thatpregnant women are more capable of being a lot more athletic than we, as a culture, acknowledge.

“ho pensato, ‘Let’s take the real boundaries off,’ ” Ha aggiunto. “Per me, it was the last bastion that you don’t see. Wonder Woman e Captain 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 “Stupefacente” in his comments to Rodriguez, 54, Cameron previously called the character played by Gal Gadotan objectified iconin an August 2017 intervista con Il guardiano, saying the latest interpretation era “a step backwards.

Il Oscar winner doubled down on his critique in an interview with Il giornalista di Hollywood il mese successivo, detto, “sì, I’ll stand by that.”

He explained, “Voglio dire, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. Per me, that’s not breaking ground. Avevano Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s.

In her response to Cameron’s original comments, Wonder Woman direttore Patty Jenkins noted that not every female character has to look “duro, troubled and tough to be strong.

Avatar: La via dell'acqua is about Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri’s (Zoe Saldana) famiglia e “il guaio che li segue, le lunghezze che fanno per tenersi al sicuro l'un l'altro, le battaglie che combattono per sopravvivere, e le tragedie che sopportano,” secondo una sinossi ufficiale.

Parlando con Intrattenimento settimanale for an interview published last week, Winslet, 47, said she thought it wasjust so coolfor 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 the Academy Award winner, who is also mom to daughter Mia, 22, più suoni Joe, 18, e Bear, 9.

The things we can achieve, Voglio dire, mio Dio, 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, è stato semplicemente fantastico. I loved that so much.
