Is 40 Dangerous Territory For Men In Hollywood?

George Clooney
There's a saying in Hollywood that goes, when a woman turns 40 her career is over, when a man turns 40 it's just beginning. Sex appeal seems to be the driving force in most stars careers and the perception of most men is that they get sexier with age. Thanks to plastic surgery and changing attitudes women have a fighting chance of keeping their share of the sexy spotlight. But what about the men of Hollywood?

In a not-so-popular film called "I'll Do Anything" Nick Nolte plays an out of work actor who's sleeping with a casting director and lands an audition for a show she's working on. ...

Dustin Hoffman
Everyone basically accepts that the entertainment biz is youth oriented. But in spite of the Hollywood bias, there are some older actors who keep at it. Below is a top 10 list of older folks who are still making it in showbiz (and we dare say these actors could teach Hollywood's current young whippersnappers a thing or two about how to have a long career).

10. Ellen Albertini Dow, age 89.

What's that? Her name doesn't ring a bell? Well, trust us, you know who she is. She had to make our list because at almost 90 Ellen is still lining up project after project. With her cute voice, b...

The Bucket List
For some families, there is no greater holiday tradition than Christmas day at the movies. Perhaps they like to enjoy an activity that, due to everyone's busy schedule during the rest of the year, is not as regular an occurrence as they wish.
