Davis commented on ageism in the entertainment industry during an episode of Allison Kugel’s podcast, Allison Interviews, which was released on Tuesday.

During the shoot, the A League of Their Own actress alleged that an older performer had excluded her from a role due to her age.

“A certain male actor who was making a movie said that I was too old to be his romantic interest, and I was 20 years younger than him,” she said.

She also expressed that ageism in Hollywood was “very strange and so prevalent.”

Davis went on to denounce the inequality that exists between male and female performers in terms of desirability for roles.

“Women peak in their twenties and thirties, and men peak in their forties and fifties when it comes to actors,” she said.

The Fly actor went on to say that many male performers had some reservations about who they wanted to be seen with on screen.

“Male movie stars want to look younger than they are, or they want to appeal to younger ones, so they always want a co-star who is really young,” she said.

Davis added that “this is why this happens and this is why women are not often chosen after 40 and 50. It is because they are considered too old to be of romantic interest.”

She went on to express that older people and female performers were shunned from lead roles.

“Characters over 50 make up 20% of onscreen characters, but women over 50 make up only a quarter of those characters. Thus, women over 50% represent 5% of the characters on the screen, ”she said.
