Sexism: it comes in all flavors! For many Hollywood actresses "of a certain age" (ie, over 40), that flavor is, "too old."
Just take it from Jessica Lange: "It’s not a level playing field. You don’t often see women in their 60s playing romantic leads, yet you will see men in their 60s playing romantic leads with costars who are decades younger."
The women in this list have lived that reality a thousand times over. Let's stan them forever.
