London: `Sex and the City` star Kim Cattrall has aid that Hollywood is a "brutal" place for older actresses to live.
"Living alone in Los Angeles can be brutal for women. There`s a lot of abuse, in the sense that Hollywood is run for the young and beautiful. The only thing that is respected over the age of 40 is success. If you miss the boat - as I was doing - then doors close and you are out in the cold."
The 53-year-old actress swapped Los Angeles for the New York in 1998 after she landed the role of Samantha Jones on the series, which filmed in Manhattan, reports dailystar.co.uk.
