Naomi Watts attacks Hollywood: ‘I was told that everything ends at 40 when you are no longer f**able’

naomi watts She has established herself as one of the most recognized actresses of Hollywood despite the fact that he landed in the United States already with experience in Australia, and at the age of 30. It was then that David Lynch catapulted him to fame at the hands of Mulholland Drivethe film that won him his first awards, but not the only ones.

Later, already in the 2010s, the actress obtained more recognition thanks to other projects for which she was even nominated for an Oscar, such as ‘21 grams‘ Y ‘The impossible‘. But, the awards returned in 2014, with ‘Birdman‘, when he won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Ensemble.

Now, not everything has been good in an industry as ferocious as the film industry in the United States, and he spoke precisely about this in an interview with ‘ew‘, bringing to light the sexist advice that some officials gave him as soon as he arrived in the country: “They told me: ‘You better work hard because it’s all over at 40 when you’re not fuckable anymore.”.

A piece of advice that did not sit well with the actress: “I asked myself: ‘What? What exactly does that mean?’ After, You think about it and you’re like, ‘Oh, okay. When you’re no longer reproductive, when those organs no longer work, you’re not sexy and that’s why they don’t hire you.’ that pissed me off so much”, he has confessed.

Differences between the treatment of actors and actresses

But, although in the case of Naomi Watts it has not affected her career as much, she has opined that the industry does not treat men and women in the same way: “It is a very rare conversation because, from day one, we began our process of aging. It’s something with which we all have to learn to be comfortable and women ask it of us more than men”.

We hardly ever talk about an aged man. We’re not talking about his gray hair. In fact, if we do, it’s like, ‘Oh, he’s more handsome, more desirable, more powerful.’ And why is he powerful? Because he has accumulated experiences. He should be the same for women. We have important and powerful experiences also at this age and we should feel proud”, added the Australian actress.

Luckily, he doesn’t lack projects, and he is currently starring in the Netflix series, ‘The Watcher‘, and also appears in plots like ‘Good night mom‘, ‘Infinite Storm‘, and in 2023 it will premiere ‘Feud‘.
