"Why Angelina Jolie Looks Young"


That’s what an ad said in the margin of my Facebook page just now.

What are these people on?

The last time I checked, girl was 33.  Thirty-three.  That’s the same age as me.

A week or so ago a woman on the Yorkville stretch of Bloor Street muttered some slur about me being a KID.

You want people to figure out why Ms. Jolie-Pitt looks young, as though it’s a mystery on par with the location of the Holy Grail?

I’ll tell you why Angie looks young, son.

She ain’t old.

Interestingly enough, when I went a-Googling for a photo for this piece, I found one of Angelina without makeup.  I should’ve posted it. She looks like one of my friends.  Pretty, but still…Young.

What is with our society and its obsession with youth? It’s the greatest irony of all: Even the young aren’t young enough.
