Olivia Colman talks aging in the industry and being lucky to have a career in a new interview with Vogue.
Colman, who plays Queen Elizabeth II in the upcoming third season of “The Crown”, says of growing into her stardom: “To be the ingenue and to keep working is rare because once people see you as that, they don’t like the process of aging. Which is f**king ridiculous! I grew to my place.”
She says of getting older, “Over the years, pounds have gone on, and my body has changed; I’ve had children. If someone doesn’t like me because of the size of my bum, they can f**k off. Because I’m quite a nice person to be with, actually.”
Colman shares of being thankful for her career, “If you’re working, you’re so f**king lucky. A lot of actors better than me aren’t.”
The Vogue feature sees numerous actors and actresses praise Colman, including Rachel Weisz, who says, “She’s kind of heartbreaking—but also funny, swears like a trooper, irreverent, feminist, bold, and bawdy. She’s a great big delicious cocktail of a person.”
