Have you seen any changes in the industry in the issues of race, the issue of being a woman, and now being a woman over fifty?
Oh shit. Miss Alfre went there.
I remember watching “Bend It LIke Beckham” and telling a friend that Keira Knightley would become a star from this movie, but Pardminder Nagra — the film’s lead who, in my opinion, is the better actress — would have a more difficult time becoming a leading lady. She pooh poohed my opinion when I explained that non-whites have a difficult time landing those marquee roles. I didn’t want to be right.
But you were right.
