Hollywood actor Russell Crowe recently made some comments about the older actresses in Hollywood, claiming that too many of them try to play characters that are a lot younger than themselves, rather than focusing on roles more suited to their age. Now, actress Famke Janssen has hit back at Russell, insisting that Hollywood has gone backwards in regard to female roles in Hollywood.
Russell Crowe made some interesting comments
 
Janssen explained, "That's interesting. I don't remember him being female. When you compare it to the 1920s and 30s it's a shame what's happened since then. That was the golden age for women in film. They were allowed to be smart, funny, quirky, dramatic, whatever, you name it ... that's clearly not the case anymore. If you look per movie the number of male parts and female parts - and I know because I even directed one myself ['Bringing Up Bobby] and put a female [Mila Jovovich] in the lead. It's really rare [for women to take the lead]."
 
As well as talking about the lack of lead roles that there are for actresses in Hollywood these days, Famke Janssen also went on to talk about the positive changes that they are seeing for female stars in the acting industry. Famke says that, thanks to a number of well written television shows, which are female driven, more actresses are beginning to turn their attention to the small screen.

Janssen added, "The good news is it's changing and it's changing largely because a lot of the shows ... are turning to women for female-driven storylines and plots. I think that's a really great departure from where we are."
 
Famke Janssen is not the first actress to come out and hit back at Russell Crowe for his comments, with Jessica Chastain also calling him out on his views, while Hollywood legend Meryl Streep feels that the actor has been misunderstood in what he actually meant.
