There have been a lot of actresses over the years, who have claimed that there are not enough good roles for women these days but Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has a different theory on the matter. Russell claims that it is not the fact that there are no longer enough roles, it is more a case of older actresses still trying to land roles that they are now too old for.
Crowe told Australian Women's Weekly, "I think you'll find that the woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40, 45, 48, still wants to play the ingénue, and can't understand why she's not being cast as the 21-year-old. Meryl Streep will give you 10,000 examples and arguments as to why that's bulls**t. So will Helen Mirren, or whoever it happens to be."
Russell then went on to claim that, if you are comfortable being the person who you truly are, then you will be able to have success as an older actress in Hollywood, "If you are willing to live in your own skin, you can work as an actor. If you are trying to pretend that you're still the young buck when you're my age, it just doesn't work," added Crowe.
As far as his own acting career is concerned, Russell Crowe will next appear on the big screen in the movie The Water Diviner, which he also directed from the screenplay developed by Andrew Knight and Andrew Anastasios. The Water Diviner has a strong cast including Jai Courtney, Olga Kurylenko, and Isabel Lucas, and will open on April 15, 2015 in the UK and April 24, 2015 in the US.
