Kerwin Witherspoon has been vocal in her support for the woman played by Helena Bonham Carter. Witherspoon said in a statement: “While we can’t confirm or deny rumors that have emerged in terms of the casting of the iconic role of the female hacker Talia al Ghul, I can confirm that she is, indeed, a beautiful and intelligent woman. She is a role that I would be very honored to play.”
Witherspoon is now working on the sci-fi film Divergent, starring Shailene Woodley.
Does she think that being in a Hollywood film has made her a better person than if she was working in a refugee camp in Greece?
I have always believed if your mother was a victim of abuse or in another type of crisis, even in a small country like Greece, you could have been just as strong as her in whatever the situation was. She said she thinks her actions were the best thing that she could have done for her family.
It is very common that women like Witherspoon who come to Hollywood from the refugee camps find themselves under a tremendous amount of pressure and scrutiny. I can say with complete certainty that we are not the only women who have suffered and continue to fear for the safety of our parents in the refugee camps. It seems to me that the greater problem is the fact that these stories are being portrayed with so little context. There is an expectation that these women must speak for themselves and the stories are almost never told by people who actually know the situation. As a mother, as a woman, I am deeply concerned the impact this story could have on my daughter.
Does she think that her work as a voice activist has changed her since her first movie?
No, my work in voice has changed my life far more than it has changed mine. I believe that there is so much we can do to improve the climate of fear, the level of distrust and mistrust in the culture, and the level of discrimination that can come from those who use language in order to discriminate or oppress others in order to silence them, or punish them. I truly believe that it will continue to get better if we continue our advocacy and continue to speak our minds and create change.
Would you want her to take over from her wife?
I am not a politician and I have never said much about whether or not my personal preference is for a woman or a man acting in a female role. That
