Hollywood Feminist of the Day: Karen Allen

"I was just glad that they were willing to hire a 56-year-old actor to play opposite [Harrison Ford]. Often somebody who's 35 will come in and be paired with an actor who's 65, and that usually aggravates me. . . . Often, I feel like it's unbelievable, too," she says. "I'm just not somebody who thinks that once you hit 40 you should be put out to pasture."
