Emma Thompsosn has launched a scathing attack on Hollywood’s sexism.
Thomspson claims sexism is worse now than ever with few roles for women of her age.
"When I was younger, I really did think we were on our way to a better world and when I look at it now, it is in a worse state than I have known it, particularly for women and I find that very disturbing and sad," she says.
"So I get behind as many young female performers as I can and actually a lot of the conversations I have with them are about exactly the fact that we are facing and writing about the same things and nothing has changed, and that some forms of sexism and unpleasantness to women have become more entrenched and indeed more prevalent."
In her latest film 56-year-old Emma Thompson plays an ageing 77-year-old prostitute in The Legend of Barney Thompson. She admits it’s a bit “ageist”.
“It would be really nice to get someone who is actually 77 to play her, but it’s a wildly comic role and I couldn’t resist.”
