Angela Lansbury finds modern Hollywood too ‘manipulative’

Washington: English actress Angela Lansbury has revealed that she finds the way movies are made nowadays in Hollywood to be too “manipulative”.

Lansbury, 85, who appears in a supporting role in the new family flick ‘Mr. Poppers Penguins’, her first film in six years, found that she is not very keen on being a part of it.

“It’s so different that I find it hard for myself to fit into it. And I really don’t. There’s no reason I should,” Fox News quoted Lansbury as saying.

“I think it’s important to realize that we don’t make movies today the way we used to.

“I don’t mean to be an old poke about it, because I realize some movies today are sensationally good, and why? Because of the special effects, the digitalizing of the films in today’s market. It’s all different.

“I appreciate it, but I’m not particularly wild about being part of it. It’s too manipulative, it can manipulate a performance. I could do something one way, but the way they cut and edit it, it’s something entirely different,” she added.
