Kate Hudson attended to the reaction from the autism neighborhood over her brand-new film Music.
In the brand-new movie, which was composed and directed by music super star Sia, Dance Moms alum Maddie Ziegler represents the titular character. Music is autistic and non-verbal, and lots of people were disturbed that Sia cast a neurotypical starlet to play such a function. In November, the “Chandelier” vocalist declared that she tried to employ an individual with autism for the part, however that the starlet discovered the function “unpleasant” and “stressful.” However, autistic stars on Twitter implicated her of not looking hard enough prior to casting Maddie, who Sia has actually dealt with in numerous of her video.
Speaking to the host on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Hudson—who represents the character Zu, Music’s older sibling and guardian in the musical drama—shared that she thinks there is worth in having a discussion around representation in media.
The Almost Famous starlet discussed, “I think when people see the film, that they will see the amount of love and sensitivity that was put into it. But it is an important conversation to have, not just about this movie, but as a whole, about representation.”
