However, Bruce, 48, who dyes her hair to cover her greys when she reads the news, said there was no point getting angry about the double standards in the industry.
The Antiques Roadshow presenter told Reader's Digest: "Age is definitely an issue for women in TV. So far, it hasn't been for me, but I know I need to make the best of myself - I have a few grey hairs. I dye them. I don't let my grey hair show when I'm reading the news."
Bruce said she would not consider cosmetic surgery as her husband would never forgive her. However, she said: "Of course, we wouldn't even be having this conversation if I was a 48-year-old man."
In February, the BBC's then director-general Mark Thompson admitted the "BBC has a case to answer about the way it treats older women on the air".
Bruce, who used to present Crimewatch, revealed she had many ambitions for life after television, including working as a magistrate. "You don't present a show like Crimewatch without developing a real respect for the justice system in this country," she told the October issue of the magazine.
