Does age really matter that much?

I can't even imagine Shah Rukh looking physically any better than in 'Om Shanti Om', but apparently Farah Khan has other ideas - as long as she doesn't turn him into one of those grotesque over muscly meatheads. More on 'Happy New Year'.

Also, in my rounds I discovered this which makes me very sad. To me, acting is not in the same category as professions like fashion or sports, where youth is valued and once you've past your prime you may as well pack it in (though there are some exceptions for sure). Hollywood has some great examples of sexy older men still doing romantic leads like:

Richard Gere (Nights in Rodanthe)

Pierce Brosnan (The Thomas Crown Affair)

George Clooney (Leatherheads)

All of these men, even including Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are examples of classic leading men who still pack a wild punch in the love department (and each and every one of them is older than Shah Rukh). Just because we age doesn't mean we don't love!

    We'll have a wait a while still, yaar, it doesn't even hit the floor until end of year. It has potential to be best ever though.

    I know. That poster would be enough for me to see it. I guess, with any movie, you hope it will live up to your expecations. I would be surprised if it didn't entertain though.
