Heather Graham says she is just happy to be working.

Heather Graham is a 44-year-old actress that doesn't look like she has aged a day. Graham has been in movies on and TV for years now and recently she talked about sexism in Hollywood according to US magazine.

Graham said about her rash of sexy mother roles, "I'm just glad to be working. I'm not actually a mom in real life, so it's fun to pretend to be one. I like to approach things the same in art as in life. You can choose to look on the positive side and enjoy whatever roles you're given. You can find the silver lining in anything."

She continued saying, "I'm not saying the movie business isn't sexist. It's totally sexist. If you look at all the movies being made these days, eighty percent of them are about men."

"There's not much I can do about it," she said. "It's a sexist world and a sexist industry. But I've been very lucky as an actress, to work as much as I have and as consistently as I have. And when you don't see the kind of stories out there that represent you, you have to make them yourself."

 

Graham isn't the only female actress that says the industry is sexist. Olivia Wilde said, "It's really hard to get stories made that are about women—not just women being obsessed with men or supporting men. And it's really hard to get men to be a part of films that are about women in a leading role."
