The short clip from Yeoh’s extended speech spoke about her experience being an older woman in Hollywood. She boldly claimed that women in the entertainment industry shouldn’t listen to people who tell them that they weren’t in their prime years.

Inspired by Yeoh, Maria Shriver reiterated how the message was significant for everyone. As she held up her award, the Oscar-winning actress exclaimed, ” ladies, don’t let anybody tell you, you are ever past your prime.” The journalist picked up on Yeoh’s idea of not surrendering to the circumstances.

But, we also cannot believe the naysayers, the people who constantly try to put us down or lead us astray.” Leading up on a high note, Yeoh wasn’t the only Oscar winner who grabbed Shriver’s attention.
