Award-winning Julie Walters prefers to concentrate on British TV projects instead of movies - because Hollywood has too much control over the UK film industry.

Two-times OSCAR-nominee Walters has enjoyed both small and big screen hits in her long career, but admits she is tiring of films.

Walters, 55, says, "Television is better because it's not governed by Hollywood, not governed by America.

"That's why you get all these British films with Americans in them, to sell them there.

"Anyway Hollywood isn't interested in women my age.

"Something like The Return (TV movie) would never get made in Hollywood, unless it had some big American name playing her (LIZZIE HUNT). You know, JULIA ROBERTS, coming out of prison with her hair all cut off to look awful."
