Meanwhile, Storm previously said working with Oprah Winfrey was “amazing”.
Storm starred in Ava DuVernay’s Disney film “A Wrinkle in Time” alongside Oprah, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, and said she was thrilled to have someone like the showbiz legend in her corner.
She said: “Working with Miss Oprah has been amazing and having her in my corner, inspiring and uplifting me was amazing.
“But she actually said to me, ‘Don’t waste energy on things you can’t change in life, when you can use that energy on something positive in your life.’
“So that’s like my life motto.”
Reid admitted it was the first time she’s worked on set with “so many women” and doesn’t think she’ll have the “privilege” of working with another female-dominated cast.
She said: “It was the first set I was on with so many women.
“I felt like everyone was represented on that set – it looked like, as Miss Ava said, the United Nations there.
“I hope I can experience that again and I hope Hollywood can normalize that, but I don’t know if I’ll have the privilege of experiencing that on the next set I go to, which is unfortunate, but it may be true.”
