"For years, I've been the youngest person on the set, and it occurred to me recently that I wasn't 26!" the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

"I'd read a script and say, 'Oh, that's a great character, that's something I'd love to do.' And they'd say, 'Um, no, we're thinking of you for the mother.' And then I'd say, 'Oh, of course! Of course! I knew that'," she stated.

The actress further told More that she feels like she's in that "middle place" in Hollywood at the moment.

"There aren't a lot of movies out there for my age," she said.

"They're still stopping at the mid-30s. Then you're Diane Keaton or Glenn Close," she added.
