Weaver blasts ageist Hollywood claims


29 December 2009

Sigourney Weaver has dismissed suggestions that there are no roles for older actresses in Hollywood.

The Aliens star, currently appearing in the sci-fi blockbuster Avatar, has revealed that she has turn down several offers recently because she's too busy with other roles.

She said, "It's not always right to say there are fewer parts for older women. Really great stories have characters of all ages in them and there are still some of those in our film industry and in TV.

"I would like to have more time to smell the flowers, but I have more work than I can handle. I'm grateful I'm so busy, though. The parts get better as I get older."
