Actress director Jodie Foster feels more women are needed behind the camera in Hollywood to change things.

The actress, who started acting when she was just three, has seen a lot of positive changes in the industry but feels more needs to be done for equality, reported People magazine.

"When I was growing up in the film business, I never saw a woman's face," Foster said during a film festival.

"Sometimes it was the lady who played my mom. Or occasionally it would be a makeup artist. But most often it would really just be me and the script supervisor.

"And little by little, as time went on, a few female faces started coming onto crews. And it changed everything."

The 52-year-old star still thinks that there is a long way to go.

"There aren't enough women directors. And hopefully that will change. And perhaps that will change with this next generation."
