Constance Wu Gets Real About The Significance Of ‘Crazy Rich Asians’

USC’s Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative found that of the top 900 films made in 2016, 29.2% of all characters were from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups, “which is well below U.S. Census (38.7%),” one study found.
In addition, nearly two-thirds of the top 100 top films didn’t have an Asian female speaking character.
“Our amazing director Jon M. Chu says…this is more than a movie, it’s a movement. He is my hero, and he is leading the way,” Wu added. “I hope you help our movement.”
