10 Stars Who Maybe Lied About Their Age

A few weeks ago, an actress friend submitted a piece to run on The Frisky. In editing the story, I asked her age, so that I could write it into the piece. “Eek!” she wrote me in a panic. “My agent has told me never to reveal my age. Can we say between 21 and 30?” Uh, no, that’s not quite how we roll here. I really thought this was an easy question—I’m 31 and have never had any qualms about revealing my age. But this incident was a good reminder that for performers, age is an extremely loaded number. Fast forward to this morning, when I saw a story about Nicki Minaj. Apparently, she claims she was born in December 1982, making her 28. But she is actually 30. MediaTakeout accused her of this last year when a reader tipped them off. And after the assault incident of last week, TMZ noticed the discrepancy on the legal documents. Which, really, you’re lying about a lousy two years? [ONTD]
