Gina Gershon on older actresses in Hollywood: "There is a little bit of ageism that goes on"

On Friday, actress Gina Gershon sat down with Piers Morgan for an in-depth and lively chat about Hollywood, pop-culture and politics.

During the interview, the ever young looking Gershon tackled the subject of aging in Hollywood. Morgan believes "women get deliberately sidelined at a certain age." Gershon agreed:

"I actually think there is a little bit of ageism that goes on," said Gershon adding that when it came to discussing her age, she felt she had to lie about her age when she auditioned for her her iconic role in the film "Showgirls."

"Even when I was younger, I had to - I mean starting with 'Showgirls,' I lied about my age for that, saying I was older, because I thought' oh no, they're not going to cast me because I'm not quite old enough.'"

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Gershon talks about the advice she received from fellow Hollywood beauty, Sharon Stone.

    A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals evaluated by Medicare starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.

    Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates – which refers to patients who return within a month – by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.

    Why isn't MSDNC and CNN not reporting this!

    obamacare is throwing the seniors and middle class under the bus!

    obama wants seniors to die!
