Marcia Cross was the exceptional guest of the Séries Mania festival in Lille. The actress, known throughout the world since she played the role of Bree Van de Kamp in "Desperate Housewives", took the opportunity to give an interview to our colleagues of the "Parisian". The 60-year-old star lamented that actresses of her age were sidelined...

More than ten years after the end of Desperate Housewives, Marcia Cross, aka Bree Van de Kamp, the red-haired and authoritarian girlfriend of Gaby, Susan and Lynette, has lost none of her aura... Invited to the Séries Mania festival, in Lille, to give a masterclass, the 60-year-old actress was welcomed like a rock star.

Marcia Cross was very little solicited after the end of Desperate Housewives

In front of a full house, the actress returned to the highlights of her career, and also confided in more personal subjects, such as her cancer, the "worst in the world". After her courageous speech, Marcia Cross received a standing ovation from the 1,400 people who came to listen to her religiously. A crowd bath that did a lot of good to the actress. Since the end of Desperate Housewives, in May 2012, the interpreter of Bree Van de Kamp has been very little solicited.

This crossing of the desert was difficult for the 60-year-old actress, who notes with bitterness that actresses of her age are always sidelined. "It's unfortunate," she laments in the columns of the Parisian Wednesday, March 22, 2023. Because this refusal to see actresses grow old pushes them to give in to the call of cosmetic surgery.

"I've changed my mind, but maybe I will one day"

"We shouldn't all look the same, have swollen lips and a perfect chin. There's pressure not to get older," said Marcia Cross, who has herself considered undergoing surgery. "I almost had my face lift recently because I feel like everyone else is doing it," she reveals. "I changed my mind, but maybe I will one day," concedes the actress.

At 60 years old, Marcia Cross feels "very good" in her body, which has "not always been the case". "It can take a lifetime to get there," says the actress. "Men continue to work with age but for women it is more and more complicated. The problem is that we do not want to face the passage of time, face death, especially in the United States. I would love to work in Europe," concluded Marcia Cross, who we would love to see in a series made in France...
