Kim Cattrall: Hollywood Doesn't Want Me

Kim Cattrall sees no future for herself in Hollywood because they simply don't respect or have roles for many women over 50. "Hollywood is not in my future," she announced during the Aruba Film
Festival this past weekend promoting her new flick 'Meet Monica Velour.'

Cattrall gained weight for her role in the independent flick where she plays a down-on-her-luck porn star way past her prime, but she says she isn't interested in all the upkeep it takes (including plastic surgery) to get directors in Tinseltown to give her the time of day now that she is 54-years-old.

"I am not interested in being a Barbie Doll and turning myself into a sausage in the next twenty years," Cattrall said. "I want to go the road of actresses like Helen Mirren and Judy Dench who have lines on their face and aren't afraid of playing their age."

Those women may not be afraid to play their age, but there are few directors who want them, Cattrall says, which is why the 'Sex and the City' sexpot sees her future in the theater and in television, primarily outside of America.

"There aren't enough roles for women over 50," Cattrall told PopEater. "Directors here aren't interested in us. We have to go out there and make them for ourselves which is what I did with 'Monica Velour.'"

Cattrall insisted that it is the business of Hollywood to objectify actresses from a young age before brainwashing them to believe they have to fit into a certain type of package.

While many of Hollywood's dames bemoan their lot following their fifth decade and try (in vain) to plump, pert and tighten their assets to play leading roles, Cattrall insists she will be happy doing something else.

"I am looking forward to this stage in my life. I have always felt I have been a character actress in a leading lady's body and I think that's why big success came to me later in life," she said during a press conference at the Hyatt Regency Aruba hotel. "I hope the next 30 years will be more exciting. I am not in this to play it safe and that's why I do think Hollywood is not in my future and that's okay because there aren't many jobs for me anyway."
