Catherine said the other day that she had no idea how old she is: she looks at other people, everyday or famous, and has no concept of how old she is in relation to them.
I realized I suffer the same problem.
So I did some basic famous people research.
I was born on April 5, 1966.
Robin Wright was born three days after me.
Cynthia Nixon was born on April 9th, 4 days after me.
I can’t say that many on that list came as a surprise to me, although generally I think I feel younger than most of them (this is probably because they are famous, and thus appear to have achieved more in a shorter time).
Here’s an interesting idea for a website: take a list of, say, 100 famous people and present them one by one, giving the option of selecting “older than me” or “younger than me” and then average out the results. Anyone?
