Most people would consider an 18-year age difference between two people to be fine. A bit too much, even. But not in Hollywood!

Vulture put out a series of infographics a couple of years ago that show how leading men in Hollywood grow older, but their on-screen counterparts stay about the same age.
"A lot of actresses are doing incredible work right now, playing real women, complicated women," The Honourable Woman star told The Wrap. "I don't feel despairing at all. And I'm more looking with hope for something fascinating."
