HOLLYWOOD, CA-It's enough to make you swoon, the glitz and glam of the Hollywood lifestyle, but there's a new spotlight on actors that reveals Hollywood’s failed attempt at diversity.

While chick-flicks might be popular, there are fewer chicks in top grossing flicks in recent years.

According to a University of Southern California study, out of 700 films made between 2007 through 2014, only 30% of the speaking roles were female.

What's even more depressing is only 14% were black, 4% were Hispanic, 4% Asian and 1% Middle Eastern.

So who has it made in the shade in Hollywood? White straight guys.

The study also discovered Hispanic females were more likely to be shown partly or fully naked on screen.

Hey, at least we've made progress from the days when white actors wore black face.

Come on Hollywood, these numbers are enough to cause a box office flop.
