The #MeToo movement ‘blew up’ the way Hollywood operates: Jessica Alba

Actress Jessica Alba joins 'Influencers with Andy Serwer' to discuss the future of the movie business and how Hollywood is adjusting to the streaming revolution.

Video Transcript

ANDY SERWER: --movie theater business, is that coming back? Are you concerned about that?

JESSICA ALBA: I'm not too concerned. I mean, I think that the old-- Hollywood has kind of a tough time, right, adjusting. And they've seen this coming for a good decade, and they were slow to move. From the-- certainly representation, the #MeToo movement really blew up a lot of the old stodgy ways that Hollywood operates.

And I think similarly, I think Hollywood just really has been forced to think of the new media and new digital era, and how do you also create experiences around what is a movie night? And how can you create a real experience, beyond go and show up at a movie theater.

How-- just think outside the box. And then if people do want to enjoy entertainment on their phone-- no matter where they are, on their iPad, on their computer, on some device at home-- it's like how can you show up and give that to them. No matter where they are, instead of creating so much friction.

So, I think Hollywood will get there, they're just a little slow, slow to adjust and change, but eventually it'll happen.
