When you’re a celebrity, you often get typecast after reaching a certain age. This is especially true for women, since Hollywood can sometimes behave as though women magically lose all their sex appeal after the age of 40 or so. Older male actors, on the other hand, tend to get roles that are especially mature, but still have an alluring quality to them.
Fortunately, there are a number of actresses who are changing the way that womanhood is viewed in Hollywood, and society at large. Many of these talented women have been in the business for quite some time, and are known for speaking out about gender inequality while creating timeless work. Of course, older men in the industry have also started to band with women to demand equal treatment (and pay) in the workplace, which only makes these guys even more attractive.
Just as most professionals would expect a significant raise in pay after working in their fields for a number of years, celebrities expect the same type of treatment. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that. After taking a glance at this list, you’d probably agree that many of these celebs deserve to be paid what they’re worth.
