Brooke Ence wants a career in Hollywood to challenge beauty stereotypes

lifeandstylemag.com

Brooke Ence was spotted on the red carpet twice already this year, after playing small roles in Wonder Woman and Justice League.

In this article Brooke talks about being bullied as a young girl for having a strong looking physique. She goes on talking about her insecurities on the Wonder Woman set after hearing whispers that she might be on steroids...

“I definitely had some moments when I was working on Wonder Woman when I felt really insecure about that… There was talk about, ‘Oh, she must do steroids.’ So that was pretty tough."

Brooke also mentioned that she feels empowered to make a change in this new film industry. So it's just a matter of future casting choices, as she appears to be open for Hollywood business.

“If I don’t at least attempt to do more in a world or in an industry that is different than what I’m used to, it may work out and it may not, but if I don’t at least try, then it’s just another person who has the ability to make a really positive change not doing it just because I’m nervous about it not working out.”
