You don't look 45! So what?
A story by Lisa Kogan on Oprah.com merits some scrutiny. In it, she says that people would always
gape and disbelieve when she revealed her age because she looks so young. She became addicted to those protests: "You look so much younger!" But the Rage wonders if you, too, recoil when people say: "40? Whoa? You don't look 40. You look, like, 36." Um, who cares? It sounds like, "You're really old, but you look a few years younger." When you're 84, do people still say, "Wow. You look 81." These days, attaching an age to a certain look is insane. Nicole Kidman, thanks to botox, looks like a 40-year-old embryo. Demi Moore? Not even sure if she is actually human.
What do you think?
