How Old is Old?

It’s not 72. How do I know? Because Jane Fonda was on Larry King last week, and she didn’t look old, or sound old, or talk like an old person, plus she’s working—writing a book. So, she’s not old.

Consider: 75 year old Richard D. Zanuck, in last Sunday’s L.A. Times, said, in response to an overture about a retrospective of his career: “Are you out of your mind? I’m still in the heart of my career.”

So maybe 75 isn’t old?

That’s great, because, by comparison, relatively speaking, of course, but still, we 55 year olds are…well…youthful! Who knew?
