[I’m sort of stunned Michael Douglas said these words. Rather politically incorrect, seems to me. I thought the whole man/ woman/gender thing was supposed to be generally irrelevant. (By the way, it’s ironic that this actor recently, graphically played the late flamboyant musician and hardy manly showman Liberace.) It will be interesting to see how his career fares in light of his comments below, provided via yahoo.com — Editor]
Michael Douglas: American Actors Too ‘Asexual’ and Obsessed With Social Media
By Maane Khatchatourian
Michael Douglas thinks British and Australian actors are taking American jobs because Hollywood’s current crop of stars aren’t masculine enough for most film roles.
“In the U.S., we have this relatively asexual or unisex area with sensitive young men and we don’t have many Channing Tatums or Chris Pratts, while the Aussies do,” he told the Independent. “It’s a phenomena.”
Douglas said U.S. actors are too obsessed with social media, which causes them to focus more on their public image than on honing their craft.
“There’s something going on with young American actors — both men and women — because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them,” he said.
