So if you’re not a hot twenty year something are you too old to have a career in acting? Are you too old to get started?
The answer is no! Oh my gosh! No, no, no!
Show business has a place for everybody. Incidentally, I don’t think that “hot twenty year olds” have the easiest time. Of course, there are certainly advantages to being young and beautiful in the world at large and in Hollywood. But on any given week the industry is asking for a huge variety of ages, ethnicities and types of people.
There are so many other factors that go into making you a commodity in this industry that being young does not cover. Beautiful young actors are placed in certain categories that only come out at certain times just like everyone else. So it absolutely makes no difference.
Plus, we’re all beautiful in our own way!
