Banderas Slams Ageist Hollywood

Hollywood hunk ANTONIO BANDERAS has hit out at Hollywood studios for refusing to hire his wife MELANIE GRIFFITH.

Acting work has dried up for the 48-year-old screen siren, something Banderas blames on Hollywood's ageist attitude towards women.

He says, "She deserves to work, she is a wonderful actress. Hollywood is very cruel with women that cross 40. With women it's very strong and it's very unfair sometimes.

"Hollywood just goes for fresh flesh. I feel bad for her because they are just missing actors who still have something to say."
