Netflix’s latest comedy, “Love Without Measure,” sparked a lot of controversy over the famous jokes about people with dwarfism in the story – and the fact that Leandro Hassum was cast to play a short character.
Now, in a recent interview with Folha de S. Paulo, actor Peter Dinklage, known for playing Tyrion Lannister in the acclaimed “Game of Thrones” series, spoke about the damn capacitation promoted by the feature film and even criticized the film industry to always let the money speak louder.
“I watch movies from the past and unfortunately if something pays off it will repeat itself. We are talking about an industry after all, ”he commented.
Dinklage goes on to speak of representation and romance in films: “Beautiful people haven’t monopolized love itself. Love is universal. I know we love going to the movies to see beautiful people, but there are a lot of other stories and they need to be told. But that’s a very complicated question, because we, the actors, have to be very careful not to offend people, and at the same time, our job is basically to play people who have nothing to do with us. So this creates a complicated impasse ”.
