In Hollywood, it’s easy to quickly become old news – these 5 actresses may have enjoyed success while young but found that they were told they’re ‘too old’ surprisingly quickly, being rejected for younger actresses even when it made more sense for the role to go to someone their age. Here is what they’ve said about experiencing that kind of ageism.

Anne landed many roles in her twenties but believes she’s now older and so not getting as much attention as she once was: “I hate to admit it, but it’s true – there are fewer roles and the competition is just as fierce as ever. I look around at my peers and I’m so blown away by their talent and their beauty and their cool style, as well as their ability to be an actress and be a movie star and be good at it. I mean, they’re so good and we’re all trying to get the same parts.”
