Melanie Griffith: Hollywood is fake

Aug 21 2013, 9:54am CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Melanie Griffith finds Hollywood a "superficial place".

The 56-year-old actress - who won a Global Award and was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance in 1988 film 'Working Girl' - has lashed out at the acting capital branding it fake because it dismisses older women for major movie roles and is only interested in young, attractive actresses.

Speaking to FOX411, she said: "It is what I never thought would happen when I was in my 20s and 30s, hearing actresses bitch about not getting any work when they turned 50. Now I understand it, it is just different. In a lot of ways, [Hollywood is] a very superficial place.

"It is all about youth and beauty, for women anyway. You just have to keep biting and pushing your way through, doing theatre. I believe in just being really good and working on my craft which is how I started in the first place. I really like that as opposed to the fame part of it."

Griffith - who is married to Antonio Banderas - has also hit out at the quality of modern movies and believes the film industry has taken a turn for the worst since her heyday.

She explained: "In this day and age ... most of the scripts are so sh**ty and stupid and superficial.

"It's not that I get that much stuff anymore. But I do read my husband's scripts and what he is offered ... The movie business has changed. I don't go to the movies these days because there is nothing to see. There is not very much, some little movies, but the big movies are all cartoons and super heroes."

The Look Of Power: How Women Have Dressed For Success

Oct 20 2014 3:23am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

Remember power suits? At the same time women were entering the corporate workplace in large numbers, the power suit began to pop up. It was usually a long jacket with the kind of big, padded shoulders Joan Crawford made famous, a straight skirt and often, a floppy silk bow tie that Little Lord Fauntleroy would have been at home in. The 1980s power suit was designed to ignore a woman's shape so it didn't hinder her mobility as s ...

Melanie Griffith Is Ready to Date Again

Sep 24 2014 11:32am CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Nothing says I’m AARP and DTF quite like wearing a sheer short dress at a vegan smoothie stand in L.A with your former husband’s name tattoo under a bandage on your arm. Melanie Griffith has it just right. Securing her fourth model husband won’t be a simple task. Plastic surgery and swallowing pills of bitter disappointment are just the basics. Pulling off sexy and vital at 57 is another matter. Madonna is banging 20-something ISIS Undecideds ...
