James Cameron has revealed that he enjoys the challenge of writing films with strong women.

The Canadian filmmaker has directed Titanic, Avatar, Terminator and Aliens, which all feature feisty ladies.

"To me, it's just another challenge. For a man to write a woman and make her interesting to women as well as men, it's a challenge. Maybe it's just a quest to understand women who are sometimes inscrutable," he told The Guardian.

James admitted that Hollywood often gets it wrong.

"I didn't even think it was that remarkable when I did it with Terminator - it's remarkable by its absence in other Hollywood movies," he explained.

"I do think Hollywood movies get it wrong when they show women in action roles - they basically make them men. Or else they make them into superheroes in shiny black suits, which is just not as interesting."
