Brian Cox says Hollywood is ‘the worst place on this planet to lift female children’

Published:

Brian Cox has spoken in regards to the challenges of Hollywood, describing it as a ‘difficult place to live’ and ‘the worst place on this planet to lift female children’.

The Succession star, 76, commented on the MeToo movement and the way wealth could make you ‘guilty’ within the limelight in a recent wide-ranging interview.

He said he believes Hollywood ‘exacerbates’ the various pressures already on young women as he described it as the ‘worst place on this planet to lift female children’.

‘[Hollywood is] a really difficult place to live, and [it] is the worst place on this planet to lift female children,’ he told The Telegraph

‘There are such a lot of pressures on young women already, and it just exacerbates them.’

Brian shares his two eldest children – Alan, 52, and Margaret – together with his ex-wife Caroline Burt, while he also has sons Orson, 20, and Torin, 18 with wife Nicole Ansari-Cox.

Within the interview, Brian went on to say that there are pressures for ladies to look a certain way and might be ‘sexualised’ in Hollywood as he reflected on a MeToo meeting he attended.

He explained that he arrived late and stood within the back as ‘intense Hollywood women’ listened to journalist Ronan Farrow speaking about his expose of Harvey Weinstein and top US media figures.

After the meeting, which got here soon after Brian won his Golden Globe in 2020, he said people immediately began filming him, asking him to inform them to ‘f*** off’ as his Succession character Logan Roy.

He said he questioned whether it was ‘appropriate’ to accomplish that straight after a MeToo meeting as he criticised the ‘tokenism’ of Hollywood.

‘That is the issue – that folks do things on a tokenistic level, I find that questionable,’ he added.

The Scottish star also spoke about finding success and wealth in Hollywood, saying that although he is a big TV star, he will not be ‘considered one of them’ or a ‘multimillionaire’.

He said that although money makes people ‘secure’ it also makes them ‘guilty’, saying that everyone suffers from their exposure to money in a roundabout way.

Brian said he tends to ‘fly publicly’ and his vices are clothes as he spoke about what he does together with his own money.

As for leaving his 4 children any inheritance money, Brian said he thinks his property will likely be divided up amongst his kids.

Reflecting on his own upbringing, Brian said he grew up because the youngest of 5 children and had a ‘blissful’ childhood until his father died suddenly when he was eight years old.

Soon after, his mother suffered a breakdown and Brian was raised by his older sisters they usually discovered their father only had £10 after giving his money away.

Brian said he had a ‘beautiful’ life as a toddler regardless that all of them lived in two bedrooms as he discussed how people haven’t got a way of ‘connection’ or ‘community’ anymore.

But he said he doesn’t want any promise of inheritance to be an excessive amount of of a ‘safety net’ for them and said he still wants them to get out and ‘work their asses off’.

His latest comments come after Brian has returned to Succession for a fourth series, with a primary look trailer giving a glimpse on the much-anticipated show.

Production on the series began this summer and while an official release date has yet to be revealed it is anticipated the show will air next 12 months. 

Not much is given away within the transient clip yet it’s clear tension continues to be brewing throughout the Roy family as they proceed to battle for control over Waystar Royco.

At the tip of last season, the series left off with ruthless Waystar CEO/family patriarch Logan Roy (Brian Cox) withholding control from his children: Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kiernan Culkin), Conor (Alan Ruck) and Shiv (Sarah Snook). 

It seems Logan has no intention in giving in to his children any time soon because the teaser sees him shouting ‘This will not be the tip. We’re killing the opposition.’

Logan – who’s standing in a newsroom continues to shout – ‘I’m going to construct something higher, faster, leaner, wilder. I find it irresistible here! I f***ing find it irresistible!’

The teaser clip comes after it was revealed the show will get a short lived reprieve from its usual location throughout the concrete jungle of Manhattan.

For season 4, the Emmy-winning drama will move a minimum of a few of its deal-making and family backstabbing to the Scandinavian mountains of Norway, in keeping with Variety.

The Norwegian setting will likely be the backdrop because the sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech mogul Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgård) moves closer and members of the Roy family travel to Matsson’s homeland. 

Tense: Logan - who is standing in a newsroom shouts - 'I am going to build something better, faster, leaner, wilder. I love it here! I f***ing love it!'

An official synopsis for the upcoming series reads: ‘Within the 10-episode season 4, the sale of media conglomerate Waystar Royco to tech visionary Lukas Matsson moves ever closer.’

‘The prospect of this seismic sale provokes existential angst and familial division among the many Roys as they anticipate what their lives will appear to be once the deal is accomplished.’

The synopsis concluded: ‘An influence struggle ensues because the family weighs up a future where their cultural and political weight is severely curtailed.’

Additional solid members were also confirmed for the brand new season.
