Holly Hunter wants boys to see Incredibles 2 ?
Holly Hunter thinks it is “important” for boys to see ‘The Incredibles 2’.
The 60-year-old actress’ animated alter ego, Elastigirl, takes centre stage in the new movie while her husband, Mr. Incredible is a stay-at-home dad, and Holly thinks it’s great to see a female character “idolised” by others in the film because it’s so unusual.
She said: “It’s fun to see a woman idolised in this way. It’s not common. We tend to idolise men.
“So it’s great for all our eyes to see a woman revered and respected. Maybe it’s even more important for boys to see it.”
Holly admitted it was “thrilling” to see her character take on an unexpected position and is pleased there has been a demand for female superheroes.
