LOS ANGELES — Actress Charlize Theron has slammed the “caveman-like” nature of Hollywood for not allowing women to helm big-budget movies in an outspoken new interview.

“I am ashamed that I’m part of an industry that has never allowed a woman to work with a budget higher than what the budget has been on ‘Wonder Woman.’ That’s so f***ing caveman-like,” variety.com quoted Theron as saying.

“I am always hoping that this is the movie that’s going to change it and keep it for us,” she added.

The actress, referring to the $149 million (£115 million) budget of Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, with whom she worked on 2003’s Monster,  told Variety magazine: “I am ashamed that I’m part of an industry that has never allowed a woman to work with a budget higher (than Wonder Woman). That’s so f**king caveman-like. I am always hoping that this is the movie that’s going to change it.”

The 41-year-old actress remains one of the most successful in her industry, with roles in movies such as Mad Max: Fury Road, The Devil’s Advocate and an Oscar-winning turn in Monster under her belt.

At the moment, the actress is looking forward to “Atomic Blonde”, which will release in India on August 11. The film is being brought to India by PVR Pictures.
