Emilia Clarke says that the #MeToo movement needs work to be sustained

While some fans are nervous that Ron Howard replacing original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller would inherently lead to a messy result, star Emilia Clarke confirmed she was relieved that she had another opportunity to film scenes which she didn't feel comfortable with when first shooting. "Ron took us from a kind of "What are we doing" phase to a place of such ease and comfort and fun", she added.

"You start to dig deep and see where it is, rife in the industry". "This has been a problem that has been around forever, so we can't solve it overnight".

In an interview for Kering Women in Motion at the Cannes Film Festival on Tuesday, where her film "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is screening, Clarke said that her starring role on "Game of Thrones" comes with a gender-neutral paycheck.

'On Game of Thrones, I have always been paid the same amount as my male co-stars, ' she said.

Jacob Doft decreased its stake in Liberty Global Plc (LBTYK) by 2.64% based on its latest 2017Q4 regulatory filing with the SEC. The British Columbia - Canada-based Connor Clark And Lunn Management Ltd has invested 0.38% in Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN).

Leave it to Emilia Clarke - also known as Daenerys of House Targaryen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains, Mother of Dragons and, perhaps now, Queen of Red Carpet Shenanigans - to brighten up the 2018 Cannes Film Festival carpet with her joyful presence. Are you telling me there's another option, that there's a weak option?

While acknowledging that it could become "muddy" she said: "From an idealistic point of view, it makes complete sense, because then people can be held accountable for things". But she also warned against an "unnecessarily aggressive" approach.

"We can say 'Hey guys, on a really basic level you haven't filled your quota so hi, I'm here to fill your quota!'".

The language used to describe female roles is another area that needs revision, according to Clarke, who seems to have had enough of being asked about portraying "strong women" in her films.
