Middle-Aged Men

    Hollywood Men Get Older, Ladies Stay The Same Age

    Average gap between a leading actor and his love interest: 19 years.

    As Carrie Bradshaw once said, George Clooney is like a Chanel suit—he'll never go out of style. Helping that timeless image: the fact that Hollywood has always cast actresses in their early 30s as his female love interests. And Clooney's not alone—from Tom Cruise to Steve Carell, a host of high-paid leading men have now reached the middle-aged mark, but are still being paired up with women half their age. To demonstrate Hollywood's enduring age gap, Vulture has compiled some handy charts, noting that it's hard to imagine the reverse scenario occuring for a middle-aged actress. The one exception? Tom Hanks, who has always played opposite women around his same age, from Splash to Apollo 13 and last year's Cloud Atlas.

    Everything You Need to Know About Jane Levy

    A primer on the star of ABC‘s ‘Suburgatory’ and Sam Raimi’s new ‘Evil Dead’ remake.

    Sam Raimi’s remake of the cult ’80s horror flick Evil Dead dominated the box office this weekend, thanks in no small part to the film’s redheaded star, Jane Levy. (Her character, Mia, takes on a central role as she struggles against the titular demonic force.)

    Levy’s better known for her turn as Tessa Altman in the cheerful ABC comedy Suburgatory, about as far away from chainsaws and Satanic possession as an actress could get. She’s got talent in spades, and it’s a safe bet that we'll soon be seeing a whole lot more of her cherubic face. So scrub up on your Levy-ology over at Betty Confidential, where they’ve created a handy list of the 25 things you must know about not-so-plain Jane. (Like whether she was a mean girl in high school, why everyone mistakes her for Emma Stone, and how playing a psychopath would be a dream come true.)
