Melanie Griffith has blasted Hollywood as being a superficial machine, according to an Aug. 20, 2013, Fox News report. Griffith has had a very successful career in Hollywood where she won the Golden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award for her 1988 hit “Working Girl.” However, she says the work offers have pretty much dried up.
Griffith said in a FOX411 interview, “It is what I never thought would happen when I was in my 20s and 30s, hearing actresses bitch about not getting any work when they turned 50. Now I understand it, it is just different. In a lot of ways, Hollywood a very superficial place.”
Griffith went on to say Hollywood is all about youth and beauty, at least for women. She also said you have to keep biting and pushing your way through. Griffith also said that now even the scripts are hardly worth fighting over. She has commented, “In this day and age ... most of the scripts are so sh**ty and stupid and superficial.”
Yahoo has reported on a Reuters story that even after her screenplay rant Griffith was cast on "Hawaii Five-0." After Griffith recently made headlines with her harsh criticisms of the way things are in Hollywood these days, the talented 56-year-old actress landed a guest-spot on the CBS drama "Hawaii Five-0." Griffith raises some interesting concerns about raising an awareness of a need for Hollywood to strive to help convey a realistic view of life with it's natural aging process, as she continues to land some really cool roles.
