Catherine Zeta-Jones: “40 year olds can do it just as well”
HollywoodNews.com: Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has said she wants to prove that ’40-year-olds can do it just as well’ as women in their twenties.
The 40-year-old star said she is playing different roles as she is getting older.
She said to UK newspaper Daily Mirror: “It’s a natural progression… I’m going to play more mums than sex symbols. A lot of people talk about how hard it is to find good roles for older women but I, frankly, haven’t found that. I’ve actually seen an influx of interesting and compelling roles that makes me confident that the over-40 myth in Hollywood is just that. I’m out to prove 40-year-olds can do it just as well as 20-somethings ever did. I’m not going out to pasture. I’m going after the juicy roles and I intend to prove older women have just as much strength in Hollywood as young women and men.”
