Barbara Hershey

In 2010, Barbara Hershey terrified audiences (and generated Oscar buzz) in Black Swan. Yet the actress wishes the film industry were more welcoming to women of a certain age, telling FanGirlTastic, "[The] thing is that you relax more as you get older. I have more fun than I used to have. There are a lot of wonderful things about getting older, as long as you're healthy and curious and alive, it's a great thing. And film should reflect it."


Actress Barbara Hershey turns 67 today - she was born 2-5 in 1948. Some of her many film credits include With Six You Get Eggroll, Last Summer, The Natural, The Right Stuff, Hannah and Her Sisters and Beaches.
