“I live in a town where if you’re a woman over 40, you’re really passé. In the movies, a Sean Connery can get Catherine Zeta-Jones as a love interest. But Shirley MacLaine can’t have Billy Crudup as a boyfriend”.

Now that I’m directing is where I’ve felt how difficult it is. Out of 200 or so movies made last year, only seven were directed by women. There’s been an enormous leap of women producers and heads of studios, but strangely enough, those women haven’t given other women a boost. It’s very frustrating.
