Nicole Kidman said that she faced the problem of ageism in Hollywood
54-year-old Nicole Kidman is one of the most popular and successful actresses in Hollywood. She does a lot of movies and TV shows and seems to have no shortage of job offers. However, the star admitted that she had to face age discrimination. Kidman said that she did not get the role only because of her age.
There is a belief in the industry that the careers of female actresses, who are about 40, are over. I have never directly heard the phrase "your expiration date has expired" from anyone, but I have had cases when I was refused and pointed to the door,
- she said in an interview with Dujour.
Nicole added that actresses need to be very strong to fight for themselves and their careers, despite the fact that, in her opinion, the situation in the industry is improving.
Many of Kidman's colleagues also talked about the problem of ageism in Hollywood. In particular, Helen Mirren, Andie MacDowell, Kim Cattrall and many other famous actresses spoke out against age discrimination.
