2. SOUNDBITE (English) Danielle Macdonald, actress: "Yeah, I feel like beauty pageants are trying to change with the times as well. There are a lot of different kinds of beauty pageants now. There are a lot that are like we are not going to focus on swimsuits and things like that. And I think that's a great step. I don't know a ton about the pageant world – going into this, I didn't know. I spoke to a lot of girls that are in pageants, though, and they love it. Like it is a sisterhood for them. It's how they got confident. So I can't say that it – like there's always pros and cons. There's always negatives and positives. So some people take great things from it. Others don't. And so it's hard to kind of have an idea about that."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Bex Taylor-Klaus, actress:
"I particularly like the ones that are scholarship based. Rather than just purely objective beauty standards. I'm like Hannah, I always prefer a little bit more substance and a little bit more smashing the patriarchy."
