Acting: Where Insanity & Vanity Meet

Once in a while we lighten up with a story that is insane. Your age is indeed your age. It is a fact. There are records of it all over the world -- think of all the documents you have signed and all the people you have told in the course of life, business, etc.

Now imagine this: Your mother tells you her age. And you mention it in an interview on TV. Can she sue you? Well, this story is not about a mother -- but it is about a woman (an actress, or 'female actor' as they say these days) -- who had her age "exposed". [It's interesting that most don't mind have their bodies exposed, but heaven forbid you expose their age. But that's another story.]

Anyway, this actor claims when you tell the world she's over 40, you have reduced her chances of getting a role in the movies and thus negatively impacted her career earnings. So, she sued.

I guess I was taught that one is expected to be honest with those that hire one -- even when it comes to the most sensitive topic of age.

But I guess vanity is still alive and well. The sooner people accept how they are and how long they've lived the sooner they'll be happier in their inevitable "old age". I'm there.
