Winners don’t quit. Quitters don’t win. There’s a new CEO in town.. trying to get things right the second (or so) time around. 🎬💃🏻 @michellevezilj @wildfirepictures
I hope you truly believe in yourself and I hope you build up others.. 📷: @headshot_la @joshuamshelton

In honor of International Women's Day, I'm celebrating the fact that on a recent feature film we ended up with half our crew being female, after hiring the best people for each position. (Most are tagged in the photo!)
I'm also celebrating my new company Wildfire Pictures and arm Wildfire Capital, which so far, have an all-female executive team. I have had wonderful male associates and mentors, but this is where we're at. It's very effective and refreshing.
Now as a side conversation, because my mind is churning, I realized the reason more women aren't in leadership positions is more an issue of nurture than nature. It takes a level of confidence that is not supported from the beginning. I grew up with a strong single mom at first (a semi-present brilliant dad and a kind, genius-level and fully present step dad) and was debating whether to be a doctor, a fireman, a paleontologist, a nomad-horseback-riding artist, or the president. I sometimes forgot I was a girl other than anatomy telling me otherwise. There were zero gender discrepancies between my brother and me, as far as support and being allowed to dream big.
Fast forward to my political science class in college where I had to sit and listen to other women explaining why a woman shouldn't be president because of hormones. That is a big problem. That is a dis-ease. That is the same mentality within my own gender that is comparable to the reason I can sit in a meeting with a man, throw out an idea, get shut down, just to hear the same idea regurgitated in different words. The scary part is that it's subconscious. The beauty of this past year is that it has all come to the surface. We are all aware. There is no excuse.
I have lost deal after deal after deal in this crazy town because men thought it was valid to put sex on the table as a bargaining chip in business. Unfortunately for them, I have a temper like no one when it comes to that inequality. Unfortunately for me, I've been less than strategic and made plenty of enemies. The redeeming factor is that I'm not the only one. I'm not crazy. We are all in this together (humanity). We are starting to see each other and starting to be a lot more reasonable ✌🏼

Remnants of the wall.. It's now been down longer than it stood. #Berlin

I'm having a hard time reconciling the calculated part of my nature with the spontaneous, oft-irresponsible part.. so after thorough research and analysis I chose the best last-minute flight to Barcelona from the #Berlinale ... #compromise

I am so excited to officially announce the formation of my new production company, WILDFIRE Pictures. As we finish up week 3 of SARGASSO, written and directed by the brilliant Adam Sigal @soaringsigal, starring major icons like Tom Berenger, @jeremysumpterofficially, @grahammctavish, and Richard Portnow, I feel grateful. Together with an incredible crew, Odyssey Motion Pictures, Dynasty Pictures, and TXL, we are making something truly beautiful. Also.. can't get enough of @dianamantis ' #bts shots 🔥

Looking 2018 right in the eyes.

This past year was full of lessons and preparation for what's ahead, learning to speak truth to power and unveiling of deep rooted imbalances.. a fuller expression of polarity so that we may realize there is only oneness and that much less is accomplished through divisiveness. Here's what I hope for you in this new year: That you know yourself fully and speak your truth. That you become the fullest expression of the creative forces inside of you. That you lead and love with your heart, mind, and whole essence. That you feel all of the significance of being here now, with the ones around you. This life experience is full of lessons, some making us grow in ways we didn't realize we could and others bringing us back to our original being. It has been shown that often hate, judgement, and manipulations of many forms are learned behaviors based in fear. I believe in the love with which we came into this world. Here's to you being you, me being me, and all of us coming together in humanity in 2018. Maybe it's just the beginning, but the tides are always turning. We have to believe in change 🌊⚡️✨⭐️

The PGA screening for "Hostiles" was captivating, as was the Q&A with actors Christian Bale, Wes Studi, Producer Ken Kao and of course Director/Writer Scott Cooper.
