Los Angeles - Sigourney Weaver still thinks there are lots of lovely parts for older actresses.

The 61-year-old star insists that her advancing years doesn't mean an end to good roles as she believes truly great films will always have a wide range of interesting characters.

The Abduction star said: "There are plenty of parts. Is it easy to get interesting parts for anyone? That's a different question. For women over 40, there are lots of lovely parts actually, because stories don't function based on just young people. There's always parts.

'Acting athlete'


"I say this, coming from the theatre, is Abduction has a great range of characters. A good story always has a good range of characters. "

Sigourney insists she doesn't always want to play the lead in each of her movies as she likes to be challenged with a variety of different roles.

She added in an interview with website MovieFanatic: "I've always loved going from playing the lead in one thing and supporting in another, comedy or drama. That's what gives me a workout so that I can be a real acting athlete. That's my goal, I like the different challenges."
