Isabella Rossellini on being fired by Lancome for being too old. "In their defence, they kept me till I was 42. It's a tradition in cosmetics, in fashion. If you ask any woman, even a young woman, they're resentful of it. Because when you're twenty you know that one day you're going to be forty or fifty. And the fact that beauty is never represented at those ages ... it's offensive and scary. If you're young, it's scary. If you're old, it's offensive. So all the way through it's bad news."
