Rosanna Arquette revealed that she turned down a role in Love Him because it would involve filming in Texas.
The revelation comes amid widespread anger over the southern US state’s passage of a tough new anti-abortion law.
Earlier this week, the ban on abortion after six weeks of pregnancy went into effect after the US Supreme Court rejected an emergency application to prevent it.
On Twitter, Arquette is best known for her roles in films like desperately looking for susan And Pulp Fiction, he wrote, “I just turned down a movie I love because it was shot in Texas.”
“All in order to put pressure on the inadequate Supreme Court justices, the way the pandemic started, and how the Trump administration deliberately mishandled it to fan the fire of white supremacy and eliminate the already fragile women and all of their strategically sinister rights,” he said in a follow-up tweet.
Arquette is just one of many voices condemning the new law and the Supreme Court’s decision not to repeal it.
Reese Witherspoon, Mark Ruffalo, and Pink are among the other notable figures I have spoken against.
