Famke Janssen cites Hollywood's sexism for exit from 'X-Men'

Feature

Famke Janssen, who originally essayed the role of Jean Grey in most of the X-Men franchise films, blames Hollywood's sexism for her exit from the series.

Whereas, the men are allowed to be both ages. Sexism.

I didn't give up, they gave up on me. There's a big difference," Janssen told usmagazine.com. Janssen cited ageism and sexism as the reasons of her exit.

"It was their (producers') decision, you know? It's like what happens in life. You get, well not to me thankfully. But people, just like men trade women in for a younger model version. It's like that," said Janssen.


The I Spy actor was excited for Sophie Turner, who was cast as a young Jean Grey; and Janssen wondered why the old Grey could not exist alongside the younger one just like they did with Magneto (Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy).


"In the X-Men series, they've been doing this for years. Although women, it's interesting because they're replaced, and the older versions - or more mature, whatever the politically correct version of that is - are never to be seen again.”


"I think that I should be back along with my younger version and the way that we've seen it with Magneto and Professor X."


Turner joined the franchise in 2016 with X-Men: Apocalypse. Her character is expected to have a bigger role and cross to dark side in the next installment X-Men: Dark Phoenix.


Jennifer Lawrence is back as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee asANightcrawler, Evan Peters as Quicksilver, and Olivia Munn as Psylocke.


The Simon Kinberg directorial is set to release next month.
