Geena Davis Illness And Health Update
Actress Geena Davis is perfectly well and has no known health issues as of October 2022. Although she is not suffering personally with age, she has faced professional hardships.
Geena Davis recently discussed her encounters with ageism in Hollywood in an interview. Before the publication of her new book Dying of Politeness, the actress discussed how after turning 40, she stopped receiving part offers.
The Academy Award-winner says she used to do a movie almost every year but did one movie (Stuart Little) in her entire 40s.
Geena admitted that she wanted to continue working and was angry when her roles began to dry up. She also did not think this would happen, having seen older actresses like Glenn Close, Jessica Lange, and Sally Field regularly playing roles and getting awards.
The award-winning actress became a first-time mother at 46 with her former husband, Reza Jarrahy. They welcomed their first daughter Alizeh in 2002 and fraternal twin sons, Kaiis and Kian, in 2004.
We will next see Geena on Zoe Kravitz’s directorial debut Pussy Island.

She said it was very moving and resonating due to her prior connection to the disease.However, the 66-year-old actress seems to be thriving in her older age instead of living in fear of the condition. Back in 2020, she shared that she feels wiser, more ambitious, and more in touch with herself the older she gets.
