Finding quality roles is an uphill battle for many female actors. Especially if you’re over 35. As evidenced by the new blood to hit Hollywood (i.e., 25-year-old Jennifer Lawrence, and most recently, 26-year-old Brie Larson), females often have to solidify their worth and star power before they turn thirty. And if they don’t, they’re left to act in low budget independent films or television. Sure, there are a select few who’ve escaped this trap, but it remains a systemic issue that affects a vast majority of the most talented actresses in the industry, proving that there’s only so much room for major, box office-successful, and award-winning female movie stars — both over and under thirty.
