Kim Cattrall on Hollywood: “They have demanded me to be much more youthful”

6c0f5287b7c2f393176e7dbd0676dd32 - Kim Cattrall on Hollywood: "They have demanded me to be much more youthful"

On ageism in Hollywood:

‘I’m not ready to play someone who is grotesque, either from being thought as a very, very older woman at 60 – which I’m not and I don’t feel that way! 60 now is different to my mother’s 60 and I’ve had the advantage of working out and educating myself further and working on so many things that have challenged me mentally and physically. They have demanded me to be much more youthful…. and I’m not ready for that. I just feel like there are very few roles to begin with, in the category of someone who is wanting to be young in a very desperate way or someone who has given up. And that’s why I don’t depend on Hollywood for jobs anymore, that’s why I became an executive producer.’

On not feeling like a sex-bomb at age 41 when she started to film Sex and the City:

‘When the show began I was 41. I felt I was too old to be sexy, I was being ageist about myself. It was 1997 and a woman over 40 back then was just not viewed as vital or desirable. I didn’t think I could pull it off. I didn’t think people would believe in her like they did. But I was absolutely wrong. Samantha broke the mould for the older woman.’

… says 60 year-old Kim.

Dove recently launched their new collection of body washes based on different body shapes, with the aim of sending the message that every shape is beautiful.

The official statement from Dove:

Every woman’s version of beauty is different and, if you ask us, these differences are there to be celebrated. That’s what real beauty is all about – the unique things that set us apart from each other and make us one of a kind. We’ve championed this version of beauty for the past 60 years, and celebrated diverse women in our groundbreaking real beauty campaigns. But we wanted to bring this to life through our products, too. That’s why we’ve created a limited edition range of Dove Body Washes, designed to show how beauty is diverse and diversity is beautiful.

What do you think of this concept?
