The fact that none of the films are set in contemporary times does not mean she's playing the same roles over and over.
I think, somehow, the author of this thread thinks because she has been in many period pieces to be playing the same character in each, despite the fact that her movies have taken place in the 18th century, the 1930s-40s, the 19th century, and will be taking part in movies that take place in the 15 hundreds. Not to mention, many of her films were set in this century.
