“Traditionally women are shunned at 40, but I think in some ways these women will be able to break that barrier. Fifty is the new 40; forty is the new 30. Women are looking better. Look at Desperate Housewives. Those women are (mostly) all in their 40s, and it's a very successful show. Maybe the world has finally realized all women aren't 20.”
