Emma Thompson has spoken out about ageism and opportunities for women in the acting industry.
The actress’ latest role sees her playing a 77-year-old prostitute in The Legend Of Barney Thomson.
“I don’t think there’s any appreciable improvement and I think that, for women, the question of how they are supposed to look is worse than it was even when I was young.
“So, no, I am not impressed, at all.”
At 56, she said her latest role was one she found wildly comic and irresistible.
