Maybe the biggest award show of the largest entertainment importer in the world needs an economic incentive to embrace diversity. Indeed, maybe we should boycott the show and pressure advertisers to do the same. Or maybe the Academy should learn the lesson of history and change because it’s the right thing to do.

When I was pitching ‘Hooligans,’ with a budget of $15 million, most people said they don’t want to see a picture about soccer thugs.
Lexi Alexander

I was pretty certain I’d stay in TV rather than returning to the feature world because the material just seems so much better in TV, especially in drama, but then ‘Crossface’ came my way. A heartbreaking, true story about the dark side of wrestling… I couldn’t say no to that.

Famous Lexi Alexander Quotes

Lexi Alexander

What’s really amazing is that the showrunner who really got me my start in TV is Andrew Kreisberg. He brought me on to ‘Arrow,’ and he tracked me down because he was a fan of ‘Punisher.’
Lexi Alexander

Whenever I go on a job interview, I always recommend Rachel Talalay. I love her.

Foreign distribution is a major aspect of financing films. If you’re flooding an entire country with cam rips DVDs before the movie is released, that will affect the bottom line eventually.
Lexi Alexander

Let me make something clear: There are very few things Hollywood is right about. This is a very corrupt, elitist industry that breeds favoritism and fails people up the career ladder.
Lexi Alexander

The criminalization of file sharing is pathetic. It’s so pathetic, it’s almost funny. Imagine if the radio people would have lobbied for a federal law enforcement agency to raid all homes for illegal transmissions of moving picture experiments in order to stop the invention of television. It’s ludicrous.
Lexi Alexander

To make an entire country as big as America aware of a movie costs so much money.
Lexi Alexander

A lot of the guys that work for Warners and make these big films there all come from the same film school. Like Michael Bay, Zack Snyder, Tarsem Singh – they all went to Art Center in the College of Design. And there’s a certain expectation when these guys graduate.
Lexi Alexander

My equality rants have been out there so much that people must be getting sick of it, and frankly, so am I, but if a writer wants to do another story about it, then go for it, because the cause is a good one.
Lexi Alexander

Movies and TV are America’s No. 1 export. So if our No. 1 export is all male, all white, then there’s only one point of view. And I just think it’s really important that as Americans – I’m a new American, but I am an American – that we don’t portray ourselves to the world so one-sided and exclusive.
Lexi Alexander

Lexi Alexander

I got to know the world of football fans and their pride in it, how they would find a family away from home. Most of them came from broken families. It always had a bit of romance to me, when I went to the game with all these boys that would just die for each other.
Lexi Alexander

I am strangely attracted to the hooligan crowd. I find them actually less dangerous than some of the people I work with now in Hollywood.
Lexi Alexander

I’m a special case: I’m a former stuntwoman and former kickboxing champion, but you couldn’t be more overqualified for the job. I cannot be the base level for what women have to do to be trusted with action, because the guys don’t have that base level.
Lexi Alexander

I understand it must be hard to realize that the playing field you are collecting all your trophies from is not a level playing field, but that doesn’t mean you can just make inaccurate statements.
Lexi Alexander

The only reason I was offered ‘Punisher’ was because I had made an indie film that was rated R for violence and was filled with fight scenes.
Lexi Alexander

There’s a lot of talk now about the PC police, and ‘why is everything bad?’ It isn’t. What it is, is that marginalized and oppressed people who have never had a soapbox, who have never been given a microphone, suddenly have a microphone.
Lexi Alexander

I have a lot of guy friends, from martial arts and film, and soccer. I actually barely know women.
Lexi Alexander

I try to write for women, but I suck at it. I really do.
Lexi Alexander

As a director, you need the Saul Zaentz type of producers. Zaentz was a guy who literally capped the storm outside of the director so that they could do their job. That’s a great producer.
Lexi Alexander

If someone is poor in India, they should be able to watch the same films as rich people.
Lexi Alexander

When a male stunt performer falls down a flight of stairs, he has a lot of clothes on and can wear all this padding. But because actresses never have a lot of clothes on – they are always falling in their underwear – you can’t wear any padding whatsoever.
Lexi Alexander

Joel Schumacher fired me from ‘Batman & Robin.’ I don’t think anybody knows that. I was having trouble with these contact lenses that were supposed to make your eyes glow under blacklight.
Lexi Alexander

You cannot make a living doing independent films.
Lexi Alexander

In my other work as a self-defense instructor, I have taught the importance of listening to one’s gut instincts.
Lexi Alexander

It never occurred to me that artists, of all people, have to be reminded that instinct is more important than tradition, but in our industry, people seem to forget that sometimes.
Lexi Alexander

It’s one of my obsessions to come up with ways to reimagine establishing shots in new, non-boring ways. Shots that have energy and excitement.
Lexi Alexander

Hollywood is silly sometimes.
Lexi Alexander

When I first arrived here, after spending years as a competitive fighter and training U.S. Marines in hand-to-hand combat, Hollywood is the last place I would have expected to find such blatant bias and discrimination.
Lexi Alexander

There’s something not right with a person’s soul when they judge another human being to be less adequate because of their gender or skin color.
Lexi Alexander

While I was able to pass as white as soon as I came to America, this was not really possible while I was growing up, as it was pretty obvious that I wasn’t ‘all German.’ So my privilege was that in America, I could conveniently withhold one of my bloodlines and avoid racism and discrimination. That is not a privilege most people of color have.
Lexi Alexander

Being half-Palestinian comes with its own challenges, especially after 9/11 and also, working in Hollywood. But denying my own father, the three siblings I have on my father’s side, I would essentially be destroying my own essence. So I decided I’m going to be me.
Lexi Alexander

I think I have a responsibility as a film-maker to bring not only controversial subject matter to the screen but also to inspire a thought process.
Lexi Alexander

You can be Michael Moore and make ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ but that’s hitting people over the head, and a lot of Americans don’t like to be hit over the head. I want to make films that make people walk out and say, ‘Wow, I really question if this is all right.’
Lexi Alexander

There are only two kinds of people who are successful at this social media thing: those who are funny and those who get real.
Lexi Alexander

Women in Hollywood have no male allies. There are some who pretend to be on our side, but yeah, not really. They may say the right thing because, after all, they’re liberals, and that’s a public image they’d like to keep up.
Lexi Alexander

Truth: I loathe the idea of being hired because of my gender, and I shudder at the thought that one day I show up on set, and half of the crew thinks, ‘Here comes the quota hire.’
Lexi Alexander

I thrive on impossible odds – always have.
Lexi Alexander

The thing about TV is that it’s great work for directors because the responsibility is not ours at all. In a movie, you choose a movie, and everybody points his or her finger at you afterward. It doesn’t matter how much influence you had on the script, how much decision you had, or the fact that you didn’t have final cut.
Lexi Alexander

I’ve pitched movies to all of the major studio heads in my time.
Lexi Alexander

When I first made ‘Green Street’ and I was considered a hot director, I pitched everybody, but there was always this feeling that I was being underestimated in the room. I pitch TV, and nobody underestimates me. They literally think you could be the next whoever, and that is a very cool thing.
Lexi Alexander

I truly believe that if I would make a bad film, I might be walking into director’s jail and never out. And that I think is probably a little more true because I’m a woman.
Lexi Alexander

Although I’m aware of how under-represented we are, I sometimes forget how desperately Arabs who aren’t in the film business wish for better stories about us.
Lexi Alexander

If women choose guerilla style filmmaking or new media productions, etc., all power to them. But if they’re there because ‘Big Hollywood’ won’t let them in, then we’re moving further and further away from equality.
Lexi Alexander

As someone who grew up in Europe, I don’t look at TV and automatically think of a primetime network series, created by a staff of writers. I think of 90-minute movies that can break talents out or a three 90-minutes-an-episode mini series that can introduce a fantastic new series like ‘The Blechtley Circle.’
Lexi Alexander

Women are underrepresented and neglected in all aspects of the entertainment industry, so naturally, those of us who want to make a change use any opportunity to shine a light on someone when we can.
Lexi Alexander

It’s almost comical how un-liberal liberal Hollywood is when it comes to fighting gender and racial bias.
Lexi Alexander

Football is a great environment for a movie because there is such passion for it and so much adrenaline.
Lexi Alexander

I have heard of ‘Green Street’-dedicated birthday parties, a website dedicated only to the clothing. It has no end. If you hashtag #greenstreet or #greenstreethooligans, you cannot go a day without people saying it’s their favourite movie. It’s frustrating because it’s a massive hit, but nobody gives it credit.

I knew I needed to make a studio film – not for any financial reason, but because, as a filmmaker, and especially as a female filmmaker, you have to break through the glass ceiling.
Lexi Alexander

‘Deadpool’ is massively successful because they made a very unique movie. That uniqueness and originality, try to imitate that. Not, ‘How about let’s try to do ‘Deadpool’ on a train.’
Lexi Alexander
