Hollywood heavyweight Jodie Foster has had enough of hearing about the “war on women” in Hollywood.

During a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival, along side her “Money Monster” co-director Julie Taymor, the 53-year-old said she was “sick of” the “woman thing.”

“There are so many reasons,” she said, according to the Washington Post. “Some of them are about our psychology, some of them are about the financial world, some of them are about the global economy. There are so many answers to that go back hundreds of years. It would be nice to be able to have a more complex conversation and to be able to look at it more than just a quota or numbers.

“I don’t think there is a big plot to keep women down,” she continued. “It is neglect really, and a lot of people that weren’t thinking about it, and a lot of female executives who have risen to the top, who have not really made a dent of bringing many women into the mainstream world.”

That ought to ruffle some Hollywood social justice warrior feathers.
