Anne Hathaway has weighed into the ageism debate claiming she is losing roles to 24-year-olds.

Hathaway shared her thoughts in an interview with Glamour magazine. “Now I'm in my early thirties and I'm like, 'Why did that 24-year-old get that part?'”

She follows hot on the footsteps of both Maggie Gyllenhaal and Emma Thompson.

Hathaway admits she shouldn’t be complaining as she once benefited from Hollywood ageism.

“When I was in my early twenties, parts would be written for women in their fifties and I would get them. I was that 24-year-old once, I can't be upset about it, it's the way things are.”

Hathaway hopes that she has crafted her career with enough success to keep enticing Hollywood.

“All I can do right now is think that thankfully you have built up perhaps a little bit of cachet and can tell stories that interest you and if people go to see them you'll be allowed to make more.”

Hathaway can soon be seen In Nancy Meyers, The Intern.
