Stars lying about their age#0
Posted: 8/23/04 at 4:21pm
its probably the norm in an age-obsessed industry but some stars really go too far when lying about their age, especially when it's so obvious that the age they claim to be isn't the age they really are.

case in point: just read a news article on irene cara. she states she was born in 1964. voter registration records in florida as well as the imdb and other sources list her birth year as 1959. when the associated press questioned her she had "no comment".

i thought that maybe the 1959 birth year was an error but it turns out that may just be her birth year. if she had in fact been born in 1964 as she claims then that means that she made her movie debut in 1975's "Aaron Loves Angela" at the very young age of 11?!!!! I seriously doubt that she was 12 years old when she appeared in the 1976 movie "Sparkle". That would have made her 16 when she gained stardom in the movie "Fame"....uh i don't think so.

i mean its her business if she wants to shave 5 years off her age, but then is 5 years that big of a difference?

i'm more curious as to why you're snooping about Irene Cara's voting registration records. Is life that quiet? I can give you some excitement Marquise, so you won't have to worry about how old Irene Cara is.

The big hangup is the industry she's in. Goes back to the leading men in films can age all they want, but the women must stay young. Look at all the movies where the leading men are in their 40's-50's while the ladies are in their 20's-early 30's. She's just trying to stay alive.

Yes Marquise, we are in a business where youth is higly valued and very important for women. There are fewer roles for women of a certain age than for younger ones so, we lie and we do what we can to maintain the image of youth and beauty. Acting is a tough profession for women.

I'll be 43 in December and there's nothing I can do about it so I might as well be happy!
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

My friend lies all the time, even in interviews, it's strange because his real age is a matter of public record.

I'd probably lie about my age if I could remember what it was...

No reason to lie.
