Allison Janney praises Reese Witherspoon and Margot Robbie for offering roles to older women

Allison Janney has praised Hollywood for offering more roles to older women, as this year’s crop of Best Supporting Actress are all women who are over the age of 45.

‘Love that, that’s extraordinary, I didn’t even put it together, I wish I had thought of saying something about that,’ she said as asked her if she felt there was a shift in the film industry.

Allison won the Best Supporting Actress award for her work on I, Tonya; she was up against Lesley Manville, Kristin Scott Thomas, Octavia Spencer and Laurie Metcalf.

‘As someone whose career didn’t start until they were 38, I’ve been happy and fortunate to be cast in roles, and now more than ever there are more roles for women, and more female producers,’ she said.

‘Reese Witherspoon and Big Little Lies, and all the extraordinary talented women coming to TV – as there is better opportunity for more complex roles – and people like Margot [Robbie]. I am so excited for her to become an important producer,’ she said.

Her I, Tonya co-star Margot Robbie set up her own production company in 2014, and she helped to produce the Bafta-winning film.

‘She’s so young and yet she knew she wasn’t getting the roles she wanted so she started her own company and looked for female driven content,’ said Allison.

‘And people like her will change the landscape of the film world and i think it’s only going to get better and better.’
