Better Than Ever: Panel on Hollywood Ageism

Updated Paley image

It’s no secret that Hollywood is riddled with ageism and sexism. Lead characters over 60 are scarce, and older female characters are even more so. As actresses like Helen Mirren have pointed out, it seems that as male leads age, their love interests get younger and younger. AARP thinks that representing seniors of ALL genders and backgrounds is important, because we know that you have amazing stories to tell. Join us on September 26 th at the Paley Center for a panel discussion on sustaining a career in a historically exclusive industry. Be sure use the promo code ‘AARP’ to get a $5 discount on tickets.
