I actually got shocked the other day. One of our babysitters was here, a mature, talented blonde woman who does have an agent and goes on calls. She is over 50. She says that the casting couch exists nearly always when she goes in. She refuses and doesn’t get the job. Only one recent gig did not involve a guy trying to hit on her.... he simply waited until a scene where she was to kiss, and proceeded to “demonstrate” the kiss on her. I was kind of shocked that actresses get hit on even at that age.
I’ve met a somewhat famous former actress she was married and refused to sleep with a powerful producer who then ended her career as threatened.
