The 41-year-old South African actress has slammed the American movie industry and admits she is “ashamed” that women don’t get to work with bigger budgets.

She told Variety: “I am ashamed that I’m part of an industry that has never allowed a woman to work with a budget higher [than Wonder Woman].

“That’s so f***ing caveman-like. I am always hoping that this is the movie that’s going to change it.”

The blonde beauty from Benoni previously revealed she thinks women are misrepresented in sci-fi movies because there’s a “misconception that women don’t like the genre”.

She previously starred in sci-fi flicks Mad Max: Fury Road, Prometheus and Aeon Flux.

“I just feel like women have been so misrepresented in these films. Why do we have to go and see the genre every single time with the girl in the back of the frame in a push-up bra? Why isn’t there a girl that’s standing on the same playing field with the guys?”

And she has claimed mooi meisies are overlooked for “meaty” roles.

She explained: “Jobs with real gravitas go to people that are physically right for them and that’s the end of the story.

“How many roles are out there for the gorgeous, f***ing gown-wearing eight-foot model?

“When meaty roles come through, I’ve been in the room and pretty people get turned away first.”
