“They were great parts [for women actors in the 1980s] and there were enough to go around. You had this whole generation of actresses of my age and we were all working in wonderful movies for great directors. And it wasn’t limited to one or two movies a year. That’s all changed. So many movies now seem geared towards post-pubescent males.”
Nah, don’t think so. More or less the same now as then. Which isn’t great, but perhaps a little rich for her (star of King Kong, 1976) to be donning the rosy tinted retrospective specs…
