As one of Variety’s Power of Women honorees Blake opened up about the importance of women and women’s rights.
She said that women have it worse in other countries but that sexism still exists in Hollywood: ‘equality is equality. I feel fortunate. It’s still to far from what it should be for women in 2017.’
She did admit things are on the way to getting better in the film industry though: ‘I don’t look at movies by the budget. I look at movies by the character. What was neat about The Shallows, it was really low budget.

‘It was a $17 million movie and we did over $120 million worldwide. It’s cool to do that with a story about a woman. It’s proof people want to see movies about women.
Chastain also made a demure and classy appearance on the red carpet.
The red-headed beauty wore a chic ivory dress and bold silver heels as she tied her famous fiery hair in a low bun.
She was one of the honorees at the prestigious event, with her chosen cause being Planned Parenthood.

Meanwhile, Graham recently opened up about her newfound super fame.
She told Vogue in January: ‘For 10 years I’d been told I was always going to be a catalogue girl, never a cover girl. Well, I got with IMG and did five covers in a year, boom, boom, boom.
‘See, if you have a pretty face doors will open, but your job isn’t just to walk through them, it’s to get invited back. Look, I hit the beauty jackpot, I get it, but that’s not enough, you’ve got to have more to have longevity in this business. It’s always been, “OK, so what can I do now?”‘
