Age Ain’t Nothin’ But A Number: Women At Every Age

Wellllll okay. We don’t have women at every age, but we do have women from 20 to 41 — in an attempt to show the variety of ways that women age. I’ve always been terrible at guessing how old people really are, and I’m betting I’m not the only one. Twenty-five can look totally different on two people, depending on diet, skincare, heredity and sun exposure (hello, Lindsay Lohan), and so can 40. But whatever your age, I think it’s important not to take it too seriously — you’re only as old as you feel, after all.

His name was Patrick, but everyone referred to him as “the 17-year-old.” That was how his number was saved in my phone. I met the 17-year-old while visiting my 17-year-old cousin in the burbs. I was 22. The cousin brought me to a high school party. Patrick was in the corner, tall and spidery with olive skin.

After a few shared cigarettes, I found myself making out with him on the hood of my car, our bodies causing the metal to cave where we lay.

“Leave the suburbs and come live in the city,” I said, the moon looming above us. Keep reading »

Mind Of Man: Why Men Lie

Men lie because the shortest distance between what they want and getting it is a rickety rope bridge swaying back and forth over a bottomless chasm that creaks when you put your foot on it. It is possible to inch across that bridge and get to the other side. But it’s more likely that the ropes will snap, and the creeping sneak will fall and, wait, did I mention that it’s not a bottomless chasm that the bridge dangles above? Actually, it’s a river full of alligators and piranha who have formed an unholy and unnatural alliance. Pretty gruesome. Keep reading »

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]

Things That Will Make You Feel Old

If you are over the age of 18, no matter what your actual numerical age is, something will happen to make you feel old. For me, it’s the fact that when interns fill out their paperwork, I see that they were born in 1992. That’s crazy, see, because I was 12 in 1992 and already had a full collection of colored jeans from the Limited Too. Feeling old isn’t a bad thing—just strange. So Buzzfeed’s collection of “40 Things That Will Make You Feel Old” is kind of blowing my mind. Above, the first entry. Some others to look forward to: the fact that all three of the Hanson brothers are married with kids, that the Macarena is 16-years-old, and that the first state quarter came out 11 years ago. Eek!

How Old Is Too Old To Wear A Miniskirt?


Over 35? Boy, do we have some news for you.

A recent survey out of Britain revealed that no one wants to see you in a miniskirt. Period.

More than 2,000 women took the poll, which administered by Diet Chef, some sort of self esteem-boosting prepared-meals site. The findings show that age 47 is the cutoff for wearing a bikini, 61 for swimsuits altogether, and at 51, you can skip both the stilettos and the ponytails. Read more… Keep reading »
