Are Demi's Complaints Valid?

Are Demi's Complaints Valid?

Demi Moore, the 44-year-old actress who looks fabulous these days, recently spoke to Red magazine about her feelings on ageism in Hollywood. She said, "It's been a challenging few years, being the age I am. Almost to the point where I felt like, well, they don't know what to do with me. I am not 20. Not 30. There aren't that many good roles for women over 40. A lot of them don't have much substance, other than being someone's mother or wife." What do you think - are Demi's complaints valid?

Maybe they're confused about what to do with her, because she's 44, but looks 30. Also, I read the story about her trying to have a kid with Ashton. Does she not realize she really is 44 and having a baby at that age can be pretty dangerous?

She's had all the surgery to make her look younger than she is, so she's probably not the best choice for any role her age.

she is old, but obviously she is trying to re-live her youth. She can't play roles that are for 20 or 30 years old nor roles for her age. Sad.

But she's decided not to grow old gracefully like Helen Mirren, etc. So she has to be cast specifically in roles for a 40-year-old-who's-spent-a-fortune-trying-to-look-20-but-isn't. And I can't blame her if THOSE roles are in short supply.

To those silly fools who make the old hag comments...that is pathetic because when you reach that age, you will find out what it is like to be called that name.The youth of Hollywood has nothing to brag about. For example:Britney Spears Lindsay LohanParis HiltonKim Kardashianand most recently Vanessa HudgensGimme a break, Don't you see a pattern here? Are these young females someone that you'd want your kids or little sister to emulate?Perhaps Demi just needs a new agent. Being young and pretty doesn't mean you're a good actress or a good person.

I think her complaint are ridiculous, she just wants to play the same parts she played when she played when she was young. She doesnt realize she can play a sexy older woman. Also, she isn't even that talented of an actress as some of the actresses that are out there right now. The good parts will go to others before they go to her.

She is absolutely right. Hollywood doesn't know what to do with women over 40, or more specifically women over 40 who actually look their age. I don't think it's ageism though, essentially it all comes down to Hollywood's and America's and even the world's obsession with youth and beauty and physical appearance. Look at the number of working actors over 40 who are still just as popular as they were in their youth. George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Harrison Ford, Johnny Depp, Keanu Reeves, Russel Crowe to name a few. AND it's common and accepted for them to be cast opposite women half their age. Recent example, Adam Sandler and Jessica Biel. How many actresses over 40 can anyone name who actually enjoy consisently strong careers? Then make another list, except exclude those who have had plastic surgery. Everyone made a big deal about the Oscars this year and how it was a breakthrough for older actresses. but put it in perspective, it was one year. I guarantee that next years Best Actress will be under 40, or even 30.

There are good roles for women over 40, but they come so few and far between. But, Demi could also just be playing a diva and not wanting to be a mother or wife when it could turn out to be a great role ... who knows.

I just hate it when older male actors play opposite women in their 20s. When the plot calls for it I understand, but in everyday life most 60 year men are not married to 25 year old chicks with super model looks. I mean look how botoxed the older male actors have to be to keep up.

Demi needs to play women of "her" age. She seems to be fixated on playing everything in her life to a younger then she is lifestyle. The woman is gorgeous, hot for her age. And she can continue to be hot, just an older hot. You can't stop time Demi!! Roll with it.
