& # 39; It feels like female filmmakers are taking up more space & # 39 ;, she said.

& # 39; We are still only 15% of the Director Guild that needs to change, but festivals are really where you see the shift begin to happen, & # 39; she added.

Last weekend Wilde, who shares two children with Jason Sudeikis, responded on Twitter that an airline had issued a kissing scene between the two female stars of Booksmart.

The original tweet reads: & # 39; Tried to look Booksmart in the plane and they cut off the FULL lesbian hook-up scene as if even a KISS were not allowed! Oh but don't worry guys, the Straights got their kiss. & # 39;

Wilde replied: & # 39; This is really a bummer, there is no nudity in this scene. What makes it obscene for viewing aircraft? Which airline? & # 39;

& # 39; It's so & # 39; n integral part of this character's journey, & # 39; Wilde told Variety from the stage. & # 39; I don't understand. My heart just broke. & # 39;
