Julianne Moore is getting candid about ageism in Hollywood.
“It’s very difficult to find parts, no matter how old you are, no matter where you are and whether you’re a man or a woman,” the 55-year-old actress revealed in a new interview with Marie Claire.
“The movie industry is not in the business of finding good roles for actors or actresses,” she continued. “It is in the business of creating films that will make as much money as possible.”

Julianne — who took home the 2015 Best Actress Oscar for her role in Still Alice — also discussed the sometimes frustrating questions women are asked while walking red carpets at award shows.
“I draw the line at picking up my skirt and showing [reporters] my shoes, but I don’t mind talking about [what I’m wearing],” she said. “For us, the Oscars are exciting, and they are important for our industry, but for people at home, they are watching for entertainment purposes.”
