"I'm now a middle-aged woman and it feels like many more roles are opening up for women. That's my personal experience," Collette said.

"It's not just this industry, it's society at large. There's been this ridiculous sense of inequality. Anyway, it's about time. It's such a necessary change and it really is occurring. You can feel it," she added.
