the five ages of Hollywood

New post up on Overthinking It today about the way Hollywood brackets all actors, regardless of their actual age, into five broad age buckets:

When you’re an actor, no one cares how old you actually are. All the producers care about is which of the five ages you fit into. Angelina Jolie has played a sexy action star for over a decade, and Tom Cruise has managed it for nearly twenty-five years. It just takes a certain look and the right kind of agent.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-check it.
