Emma Thompson refuses to worry about how ageing might affect her Hollywood career - because she writes her own parts.
The Oscar-winning actress has added her own twist to scripts of several of her movies, and fully tackled the role of screenwriter for her adaptation of kids' book Nanny McPhee.
But she insists the added workload is worth it - because it prevents her from being typecast in the ageist film industry.
Thompson says, "I write my own roles, which is helpful. Of course though, there are older parts like the one I played in Brideshead Revisited, which was excellent."
And the Brit is adamant she will never go under the knife to turn back the clock - insisting it's possible to look great as you get older.
She adds, "I'm not fiddling about with myself. We're in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60. The trick is to age honestly and make it look great so that everyone looks forward to it."
