Obsession with youth saddens MacDowell



Andie MacDowell said she's saddened by Hollywood's obsession with youth, but she believes older actresses have a future.

"I don't think that youth should be glorified," said MacDowell, 45, who was in Vienna, Austria, attending Thursday night's Opera Ball. "It's a mind-set that has to be changed.

"But I think it's changing a little bit," she added. "The baby boomers are now mature and they're gonna want something they can relate to - I hope."

MacDowell said she's confident enough that older actresses have a future that she's devoting most of her time to her children.

After they're grown, "who's to say I can't find some great work when I'm 55 or 65?"
