All one has to do is mention her name and I give her a thumbs up. She's HAWT.

Yet, as I quickly discovered, if you were over 35, you weren't any of those things as far as Hollywood is concerned."

There you have it, she was too old in 1997! Also, she 'never felt more ready as an actress'? Really? She needed to hone her craft before taking a crack at being a BOND GIRL?

Sheesh, she wasn't even that good looking when she was young!
What's your point? That women over 35 are actually too old to be attractive?

Oh yes. I don't care if she's over fifty, Sela Ward is a timeless beauty... but I'm sure Yoda will be along soon enough to tell me why I'm wrong.

I could have predicted that for you too if I'd joined the thread sooner.

Thumbs-up from me.

We hear this a lot, that opportunities dry up for actresses when they reach a certain age. But I can think of a number of actresses who have done quite well in film after hitting 30, thanks to their talent and maybe a bit of luck. Diane Lane was 36 when she filmed Unfaithful. She received an Academy Award nomination, which gave her career another boost. Now she's 44, filming Secretariat for Disney.

Jennifer Connelly will be 39 this year. She's thriving in her career. She's second on the Forbes "Best Actresses For the Buck" list. It's a list of 10 actresses who are not the highest paid (like Angelina Jolie perhaps) but represent the best financial returns for studios:

http://www.forbes.com/2009/10/05/bes...omi-watts.html

#1 on the list is Naomi Watts. She's 41. She was already over 30 before she starred in her first international hit, The Ring (2002). Her career really took off after that.

At 53, Sela Ward might be too old (in the minds of studio execs) to compete for lead roles in big-studio films. Fortunately, there are always lots of supporting roles that she can compete for, not to mention work in television. IMHO, Sela Ward still looks at least 10 years younger than she really is. She has talent and I expect her to be around for years to come.

I've never posted or voted in one of these "Genre babe of the week" threads, but I had to come in and vote on this one. Absolute thumbs up. She's been amazing for a long time.

That's not calling anything. That's more along the lines of color commentator saying, "The team really wants to score here."

I take it you haven't read many of his posts in the other genre babe threads. That's precisely his point.

Yeah, I'd love to be able to claim clairvoyance here, but truthfully, you don't need to be psychic to predict some things.

Well, the "old lady" is currently at 77% thumbs up. No further comment necessary.

I voted down but now I wish I voted up to cancel out Yoda's automatic "she's too old!!!!111" vote.

Decent-enough looking, I suppose, but her face is a little too botoxedly frozen.
