"Well, I don’t even know what the “studio system” is, first of all. I don’t think there is a system. It’s a bunch of people scrambling trying to get rich. That’s all it is. There’s no committee that sits around and goes, “This is the system.” It’s like, “Hey, if Joe Black suddenly makes us 100 million, find me 10 more Joe Blacks.” I think that’s the nature of the business. I think that the business is toughest on women, white or black."
