Quoth he:

There's this strange thing that's happened over the last 25 or 30 years where there's this decision being made that women aren't able to carry the box office. Now, Bridesmaids has proved that to be bullshit, and The Help has proven it to be bullshit. But it's much harder to get a film with a woman lead made. When a man hits 40 is when roles just begin to happen. And for women it doesn't happen. I find that to be a very concerning issue.
