Breaking Bad legend Bryan Cranston talks about sexism in Hollywood

Hollywood eats women up in their 20s, and spits them out in their 30s

– Bryan Cranston on Hollywood sexism

Bryan Cranston talked of Breaking Bad’s enormous success and sexism in Hollywood as he joined us this morning to discuss his latest flick Wakefield.

The award-winning actor revealed he knew Breaking Bad was a hit when traffic signs from the hit show were being stolen.

"Why would they steal the signs? And that’s like, something’s happening... it had this effect on people," he told GMB.

Bryan's also opened up about how his career has soared in his 50s and spoke about acting later on in life, saying he’s well aware of a gender divide.

"It’s great for me. I can’t complain about it but I think honestly there’s probably a double standard to that; I think it’s a lot more difficult with women."
