Rampling: old age can be ‘extraordinary’
Question of the Day
ROME (AP) - Charlotte Rampling, who plays a dying, elderly woman in a new film, says the rewards of growing old as an actress are “extraordinary.”
Rampling turned 65 earlier this year. She told reporters Sunday at Rome’s film festival: “Who wants to grow old? Who wants to get lines?” Still, she added, allowing yourself the “luxury” of being old, and even ugly and unattractive, while acting brings its rewards.
The actress, known for her sensual presence in such films as the 1974 “The Night Porter,” portrays a dying wealthy woman in her 70s in a dysfunctional family in “The Eye of the Storm.” The film, by director Fred Schepisi, is in competition at the festival that runs through Nov. 4.
