Film: Movie Stars and What the Face of Cinema Looks Like

  1. Festival de Cannes : anatomie des héros de cinéma
  2. France vs. US – What Do Movie Stars Looks Like?

Article number 1 is the original article, in French, with the infographic shown below. It was published in honor of Cannes.
Article number 2 is how I found the original article. It includes a brief summary translation and then in the comments there are some good translations of the infographic.
Nothing surprising about the data. My summary below the infographic.

My summary (mostly by translating the comment bubbles):

  1. In the US there are almost twice as many leading actors as there are leading actresses
  2. In France the leading actress is 10 years junior to the leading actor and in the US the leading actress is 15 years junior
  3. The career of actresses in the US drops off drastically at age 40, contrarily this is the ideal age for an actor.
  4. Looks graphic The Actress: France is marginally worse at diversity on screen for actresses. Both are crap at overall diversity.
  5. Looks graphic The Actor: France is marginally better at diversity on screen for actors, especially those from Northern Africa (Maghreb = Northwest Africa, west of Egypt). Both are crap at overall diversity.
