Kirsten Dunst sat down with Nylon Magazine to talk about the issues she’s been having with getting good roles in Hollywood now that she’s in her mid thirties..
The actress who recently appeared in Hidden Figures talks about the lack of roles available for women in her age bracket..
Kirsten opens up to Nylon stating:
Once you reach your thirties in Hollywood, you’re no longer able to play “the young girl who’s just, like, beautiful and things are happening to her” and so, opportunities dry up, Dunst explained.
The actress, who has been working since age three, revealed that to add to the difficulties of finding roles as a woman, social media influence is now a factor in getting work in the biz:
“You can get jobs based on your Instagram following these days. That’s insane. But that’s why I have it now,” she told Marie Claire in a recent interview.
“As a man, you could get away with not having it. As a woman in this industry, I think you gotta do it now, she continued.
“It’s just part of the game.”
