Teri Hatcher fears she is too old to be an actress. The 'Desperate
Housewives' star has just sold a new TV show to a US network and is
planning to grow old gracefully "behind the camera". Teri told Easy
Living magazine: "I've just sold my first TV show to a network.
It's a comedy and it may never make it to air but it's exciting to
be behind the camera. I'm writing a book too! I'm trying to build a
business that will allow me not to be in front of the camera,
because, you know, I'm old!"
The 42-year-old, who plays Susan Mayer on the hit US TV show,
recently admitted she was struggling to strike a balance between
work, love and caring for her eight-year-old daughter Emerson Rose.
She said: "I'll work a 14-hour day, four days in a row and feel
like I've been run over. But I don't call it tired, I call it,
'Nothing is right, and I'm no good at my job and I'm horrible and
no one will ever love me. This is a serial problem for mothers.
We're trying to be everything all the time. The best mom, the best
worker, the best wife or the best dater. And it's too much."
