Hollywood has few roles for older women: DunawayMay 18th, 2008 - 1:03 pm ICT by admin
London, May 18 (IANS) Veteran actress Faye Dunaway, who has starred in classics like “Chinatown’ and “Bonnie and Clyde”, is angry with Hollywood film producers for not having enough roles for older women. The 67-year-old actress believes Hollywood executives are hypocritical because they favour older male stars like Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood being paired up with much young actresses on screen, contactmusic.com reports.
Dunaway said: “I am furious that they think I’m too old to play the love interest of guys like Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood. Why should I play sisters and mothers while guys like Jack and Clint, who are older than me, have on-screen lovers half their age?”
