Maureen Lipman: Lack of work for older actresses is fair enough

OHMYGOSSIP — Dame Maureen Lipman believes the lack of work for older actresses is “fair enough”.
The 74-year-old actress has praised the likes of Dame Maggie Smith and Dame Judi Dench for continuing to find success in Hollywood at an older age, but has also insisted she understands why there’s “not a lot of drama work out there” for stars after they’ve reached a certain age.
She said: “Though Maggie Smith and Judi Dench have done all right, there’s not a lot of drama work out there for older actresses. And you have to understand that every older actress still thinks that she’s 34. Look at Joan Collins. And just because you’re 74, it doesn’t mean that you believe it …”
Maureen – who joined the ‘Coronation Street’ cast in 2018 as Evelyn Plummer, after having previously appeared in the series for a period in 2002 – also said she doesn’t waste time “thinking about [her] absence from society”, and thinks the cycle of an actress’ career is just part of life.
Speaking to the Radio Times magazine, she added: “I don’t sit around thinking about my absence from society, because I’m too busy getting on with life. Yes, maybe we do get thrown onto the scrapheap after a certain age, but that’s fair enough, isn’t it? The same thing happens to a leaf on a tree.”
Maureen recently said is considering potentially having some work done, because she believes she is starting to “look like a peregrine falcon”.
She explained earlier this month: “I thought, ‘My God, you’re growing to look like a peregrine falcon, Maureen, with a disproportionate beak.’
“What can I do? Everyone’s having stuff injected into their faces … I’m frightened to death – I know what would happen.
“It would all coagulate in one place.”
