Jim Broadbent - Jim Broadbent Wants More Roles For Women

Veteran British actor Jim Broadbent is calling on moviemakers to create more onscreen roles for women.

Broadbent, who starred opposite Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher's husband Denis in The Iron Lady, insists he is happy to take supporting roles opposite a female lead, and wants to see more women in major parts.

He tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper, "It's not a question of allowing the women a chance but it's sad sometimes when women have to take the roles that are supporting the man. It would be good if it were more equal."
