I'm not surprised. You hear so many actresses say this. You can even tell by the types of roles they accept after Hollywood deems them as "old." Unless you're Meryl Streep, actresses over 30 get meaty roles occasionally and stuck with playing the mom or just terrible movies.

Of course she was. Can execs like this just die off already? I'm out of patience.

Them: "We can't find any actors/actresses of color!"
Also them: "You'll never make it in this industry as an actor/actress of [insert non-white race/ethnicity]."

Yep. Jsu Garcia is on record saying they had him pretending to be Italian (with the name Nick Corri) because, "A Latin actor could never make it".

And yet you have so many actors who should have been buried a long time ago (not saying they need to die, just saying how they look like the crypt keeper) continuing making movies where their love interest is a young woman. The number of arguments I have had with my father when I pointed out the double standards in Hollywood.
