Michael Douglas Thinks American Actors are “Asexual” and “Sensitive”

Michael thinks all of the good roles are going to British and Australian actors because American actors are too sensitive and asexual.

Y ep, he actually said that. Michael says there are only a few actors such as Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt who can get these kind of roles, and everything else is going to actors from other countries. Why? because they’re too sensitive and have also become sucked into social media and are forgetting the actual acting part of their job. He also calls them “asexual” and believes they’re often not masculine enough. Michael shared his opinion:

“There’s something going on with young American actors – both men and women – because the Brits and Australians are taking many of the best American roles from them. Clearly, it breaks down on two fronts. In Britain they take their training seriously while in the States we’re going through a sort of social media image conscious thing rather than formal training. Many actors are getting caught up in this image thing which is going on to affect their range. With the Aussies, particularly with the males it’s the masculinity. In the US we have this relatively asexual or unisex area with sensitive young men and we don’t have many Channing Tatums or Chris Pratts, while the Aussies do. It’s a phenomena.”

He believes American actors are too concerned with social media and are focusing too hard on their online image:

“There’s a crisis in young American actors right now. Everyone’s much more image conscious than they are about actually playing the part.”

Dustin Hoffman recently slammed the film industry, saying that no one is making good films any more and the best roles are now in tv shows. Michael said about Dustin’s statement:

“I understand what he’s saying, but I think you have to look at the delivery system. There’s a lot of good stuff being made in the cable area, good writing there. Kramer vs Kramer, those great mainline films he was in aren’t being made anymore [for cinema] but are in a different delivery system. Most of the great screen writers have gone into the cable area because that’s where they can also produce. The problem in making a film for cinema is the cost of distribution. People can scrape together money for a movie but not the advertising.”
