I feel like it’s ridiculous that women over 40 aren’t working. So I just am doing a show about that now, ‘Feud’. I’ve got eight women in that show over 40 [including Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sarah Paulson]. They’re all amazing and they’re always just so stunned that somebody cares about them, which is the thing that I find the most moving. They’re like, ‘Really? You’re interested in me?’ And they always say that to me. Kathy Bates, Jessica, on and on and on. And I am, I’m interested in them.
