Women Make The Best Directors Of Men, Comments Ben Kingsley | Film News
He has won world renown as an actor for roles such as Ghandi and Sexy Beast as well as having an enduring appeal to everyone from teenage – with his role as the Mandarin in Marvels Iron Man 3 – to that of your most ancient of grandparents. But recently the actor has given women directors more than a vote of confidence in women directors, saying he is determined to produce and star in more movies directed by them.
He commented to the Observer:
“I do feel that it is through the prism, the lens, the perspective of the female eye – the loving female eye – that a man is almost given permission to be vulnerable. I’m sorry to say that I’ve only worked with possibly four female directors. If you look at my CV, I’ve done a lot of movies, so that’s a terrible imbalance.
The ladies I have worked with have an extraordinary ability to put [male vulnerability] on screen. There’s only one male director – possibly two – who really gets this and understands its value as a currency, as a character trait, as something that has its place in our humanity and must always have.”
