Jessica Lange Says Hollywood Is Run From a 'Male Point of View'

May 22, 2015

Actress Jessica Lange expressed little surprise that a movie studio reportedly turned down 37-year-old actress Maggie Gyllenhaal as "too old," declaring that the entire movie making industry was run from a "male point of view."

"Even if a woman runs a studio, she still does it with a male point of view," Lange, the lead actor on the FX series American Horror Story, said in an interview with TheWrap.

“That men continue to be fascinating and attractive and virile, and women age and are no longer sexual or beautiful ," she said. "It’s a fantasy that has nothing to do with reality.”
