Veteran star Meryl Streep feels sorry for young actresses hunting for work in Hollywood, as female roles are so similar and often "indistinguishable".
The 62 year old has enjoyed a successful and lengthy career with varied parts in recent box office smashes including The Devil Wears Prada, It's Complicated and Mamma Mia!
Streep's roles have been wide-ranging, but she is worried that interesting parts for younger stars are more limited.
She tells Empire magazine, "From The Devil Wears Prada to Mamma Mia!, it's been a wide variety. Maybe that's because they don't know what to do with me. It's really fun.
"I feel sorry for the young girls because parts these days are cookie-cutter. One after another, indistinguishable."
