‘Lady Problems’: Melanie Lynskey On Becoming An ‘Invisible’ Over-30 Woman In Hollywood

Plus, we play a game with Melanie called ‘Trivia About Yourself’

This week on “ Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Teo Bugbee and Rachel Handler interview the fabulous Melanie Lynskey. Melanie's in the new movie I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore, an eccentric crime-thriller-cum-dark-existential-comedy (just watch it) that won Sundance's Grand Jury Prize and premiered on Netflix last week. We talk to Melanie about the film, why she's such a consistently calming presence in indie cinema, how she sometimes feels "invisible" as a woman over 30 in Hollywood, and how she keeps herself from disappearing into her consistently morose characters. Later, we play a game with Melanie called "Trivia About Yourself," in which we quiz her about her 20-plus years of incredible movies.
