The Grill 2015: Maria Bello on Pope Francis, Roles After 40 and Her New Digital Venture (Video)
“When you look at the numbers and who is consuming the media — you realize it’s women. We have an opportunity,” she says at TheWrap’s sixth annual media leadership conference
Maria Bello is charting her own course in the entertainment industry.
As the second-day spotlight conversation for The Grill 2015, TheWrap’s sixth annual media leadership conference, Bello talked about how her 2013 New York Times op-ed about her romantic relationship with a woman has had a ripple effect on her personal and professional life.
In the two years since her piece, in which she described her sexual identity as “whatever,” Bello has written a book — “Whatever… Love Is Love,” landed multiple high-profile jobs like the forthcoming David Kelly legal drama “Trial” with Amazon, and as prepared to enter the universe of digital content creation.
