While she was promoting her new documentary in London on Thursday, actress Susan Sarandon took a swipe at Hollywood, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story" tells the story of silver screen legend Hedy Lamarr, who wasn't just an iconic actress, but also an inventor who developed a radio guidance system during World War II that became the basis of Bluetooth and WiFi technology.

Although Lamarr was clearly brilliant, Sarandon said "it's certainly not a requirement to be smart in my business."

"Mediocrity is rewarded time and time again. A lot of the time you’re hired because you don’t ask questions. It takes more time to ask questions, it takes more time to fight for something with integrity," Sarandon said.

Sarandon, who won an Academy Award for her performance in "Dead Man Walking" in 1995, also weighed in on the #MeToo movement and addressed the "tricky" nature of films and how they portray sexuality.

"It’s very complicated, in my business especially, because it’s all about your sexual currency," she said. "Whether you actually deliver to anyone in charge to get a job that way — people hire women they want to be with and men they want to be. And anyone that falls in between is a character actor."

"I think that we can’t condemn someone, we can’t slut-shame somebody for embracing their seductiveness," she continued. "But, at the same time, you want to have enough power and economic stability to able to say no, to not be in a Harvey Weinstein situation where your work is held hostage and you're forced to do things you don’t want to do."
