''The fact of the matter is that my two horrendous experiences with directors were male directors. Have I not gotten along with a female director? Absolutely. And was it not the greatest work experience? Sure. But there was never a time that I felt, 'This is happening because I’m a woman.’ Wherewith the male directors, it 100 per cent was only happening with me; it was a power dynamic thing. And on both of my bad experiences, the movies were 95 per cent men and I was the only woman in the movie.'' she added. 

The film was a terrible flop at the box office and critically too. The movie made controversy after director, Josh Trank inappropriate behaviour on set.  After years of gap, the director made a return this year, with the Tom Hardy-starrer 'Capone'.
