This year, Clarisonic was the official sponsor of Glamour Reel Moments. The Glamour Reel Moments program was established in 2004 to place more women in the director’s chair and bring Glamour reader’s stories to the big screen. Eva Longoria, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde join the other 19 A-list actresses who have pushed stereotypes aside and stepped behind the camera to direct a short filmed inspired by real-life stories. We got the inside access and are bringing it to you, our fans! The three actresses discussed their directorial experiences on a panel during a luncheon hosted by Glamour and Clarisonic. The luncheon gave these new directors a platform to discuss the lack of female directors in the film industry; noting that only 7% of directors are women. All three ladies noted the difference of being an actress to being a director and in taking on their movie themes of empowerment, discussed these nuances candidly with the crowd of film and beauty bloggers. Zoe noted that the experience was empowering and made her dream of directing a sci-fi film come true. Eva’s insight into her directorial debut showed that the actress liked the feeling of power of behind the camera best stating, “As an actor, you just hope they edit things right and make you look good. As a director, everything is in your hands. You become very insightful and sharp real quick!” When asked about why there is a lack of female made movies, Eva chimed in that the real project is to move the ball down the court. Olivia seconded that, by noting that someone has to be the first and Zoe noted that the pressure isn’t only on the industry but the audience – stating that people need to watch the movies women make for producers to want to make them
