Actress Tessa Thompson has said that she does not want to work with “bunch of white people” or men.

The star of Selma and the Creed franchise has said she does not wish to walk on set and have white males predominate either on screen or off.

Whether in front or behind the camera the actress, who plays the wife of Adonis Creed in the latest instalment of the boxing franchise, has insisted she wants to work on “inclusive” productions.

Speaking at the European premiere of Creed II she told the Press Association: “I don’t want to show up on set and just see a bunch of white people, no offence. And I don’t want to work in the company of a bunch of men. No offence.

“I want to see work that really looks like the world in which we live. There are lots of people of colour, look around. It’s also really exciting not just what we put on screen, but also to work on productions that are inclusive
