Dame Joan Collins wants to see more films being made for older viewers

Dame Joan Collins wants more films to be made for older viewers.

The 83-year-old actress doesn't feel there are enough movies out there made for older men and women.

Speaking of her movie 'The Time Of Their Lives', she told London's Evening Standard newspaper: "This is a role that would be great to have at any stage in your career. I just don't think there are any roles for women over the age of about 40 anymore.

"Hopefully, people will see this movie and see that there is this audience. Let's face it, there are three million people in this country over the age of 65, and a lot of them want to go to the movies. And they don't necessarily like guns and blood and gore, and creatures from outer space."

Meanwhile, Joan is hopeful people will still like her film - which also stars Pauline Collins - despite it not having any "blood, sex or violence".

She said: "I hope people love it because it hasn't got blood, sex, violence and guns and gore and swearing, however, I do use the F-word twice and the S-word once."

And the former 'Dynasty' star claims the secret to looking fabulous at her age is living life to the full.

She added: "Maintenance, keeping out of the sun, eating good food, very positive attitude towards life. When life gives you lemons, which in my case it has a lot, then you have to make lemonade and I think I squeezed the most out of life and living life to the full is also a gift."
