“The reason I had to do this film was because usually women after we get 40 they send us out to pasture.”
“My point is we see men of all ages over 40 … and they always get these heroic roles. Why don’t you see women like this? All of my friends in the industry look amazing and they’re quite athletic. Why aren’t we all in films like this every year.”
You Go Girl!
Proud Mary releases to theaters Friday.
