Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche has urged ageing actresses to take more risks with their career or face losing out on top roles.
The French star insists she's never struggled to land interesting parts in films, and the 46 year old is sure it's because she's always willing to take on a challenge.
She says, "You have to create your life, and go to directors you love, and go with unexpected risk and stories - it's that or write yourself, you cannot always blame others.
"I've never felt the lack of good roles at my age. I went to see directors who understand, who want to shoot human beings and not ideas of women. I think that we are all creative and we have to take possibilities."
