Liv Tyler is the latest young, talented, beautiful actress to complain about how Hollywood treats aging women, making all of us normies feel like real grandma freaks. We know 37-year-old Maggie Gyllenhaal is too elderly to play the love interest of a 55-year-old and that 32-year-old Anne Hathway is losing out on parts to less feeble actresses in their twenties.
Tyler, who is 38, confirms the bleak prospects for ancient post-29-year-olds in an interview with the More magazine (via The Wrap):
38 is a crazy number. It’s not fun when you see things start to change. When you’re in your teens or 20s, there is an abundance of ingenue parts which are exciting to play. But at [my age], you’re usually the wife or the girlfriend, a sort of second-class citizen. There are more interesting roles for women when they get a bit older.
That's so disheartening, especially considering it means the rest of us must be millionth class citizens.
