7 Actresses Who Claim Getting Older Has Ruined Their Careers
It’s no secret that Hollywood favors young actresses. Most of the roles available for women are geared toward the young ones. Once these ladies hit the big 4-0, many of them simply disappear. After reading a number of interviews with older actresses, one thing has become abundantly clear – as women age in Hollywood, the roles dry up. Even younger actresses like Jessica Chastain have said the same thing. Hollywood is still very much a man’s world and these men would rather not see older women in their films. Here are 9 actresses who have said aging has negatively affected their careers!
7. Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields has complained that there aren’t a lot of roles in Hollywood for women who are over the age of 30, which may be a bit of exaggeration, but we understand where she is going with this. “There aren’t a lot of movies out there for my age,” she said. “They’re still stopping at the mid-30s. Then you’re Diane Keaton or Glenn Close.” Or Meryl Streep – you can’t forgot her!
