Maybe this is just because I'm still pretty young, but I don't get the whole "Mid-Life Crisis" thing.
First off, it just seems like such a lame middle-class-American thing to have. Nobody cool has a mid-life crisis. Imagine, say, Patrick Stewart having a midlife crisis. Hard to do, huh? How about Emma Thompson? Don't see it. Now try imagining, say, Donny Osmond having a midlife crisis. Easy, huh? Hell, the last few decades of Donald Trumps life are arguably one big midlfe crisis.
Why do people mourn the fact that they aren't cool anymore by suffering the least-cool malady ever?
Secondly, why do men have mid-life crises at not women? Women are the ones who are expected to do everything men do, and be sexy.
Anway, a psychiatry professor is with me on this one and has written an article about it in the NYTimes.
Ps. Oh, and Diane Keaton? No mid-life crisis around here.
