There have always been plenty of issues with Hollywood over the years and, while there was once a time when people would never speak out about them, it seems that these days people are more than happy to make their feelings known. While most of the talk about Hollywood issues focuses on the gender inequality, there have also been ageism issues too.
Hollywood superstar Goldie Hawn has been working in Hollywood for decades now but she is no stranger to experiencing ageism in Hollywood, which she has recently spoken about. Goldie says that, while ageing women in Hollywood try to cling onto their youth, they should accept that there are good roles for older women too.
Hawn was chatting to the June/July issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine, when she told them, "You think you're going to fight the system? You think you're going to prove to Hollywood when you hit 45 that you're still a sexy, viable object? No. There's a certain reality. Does it make me angry? No. I'm not an angry person. I'm not a militant person. Anger doesn't get you anywhere. It's not productive."
She added, "An editor from a women's magazine came up to me and said, 'Don't you feel terrible that you're playing a dumb blonde?' I said, 'I don't understand that question because I'm already liberated. Liberation comes from the inside.'"
As far as he acting career is concerned, Goldie Hawn has made her return to the big screen after 15 years away, in the new movie Snatched, which sees her sharing the big screen with the wonderful Amy Schumer. Snatched is out now in the US and is set to hit the big screen in the UK on May 19.
