I just saw an ad with Sally Field. She's hawking osteoporosis medicine.
Yep, makes me feels old, too, because I happen to remember her as that cute li'l sprite, Gidget. Granted, I'm younger than Ms. Field. (I mean it. I really, really mean it. Pun intended…)
Having been born in 1946, Ms. Field (Thus my insistence on the deferential "Ms.") is one of the first very first baby boomers, and certainly she has every right to be taking a calcium suppliment. Heck, I don't even mind the fact that she's hawking one. I mean, we all have to pay the bills, right?
But as Gidget goes, so goes her generation — which just happens to be almost 80 million Americans.
And that includes those of us on the younger side of boomerdom.
The great news is that she looks super. She's tiny to begin with, so I can't say that I've noticed any shrinkage, and certainly no unseemly humps or lumps. And I admire her resistance to the that Hollywood fallback position: cosmetic surgery.
BECAUSE REAL ACTRESSES DON"T SHOOT COLLAGEN.
And she's not just any actress. She's M'Lynn Eatenton. And Lilah Krytsick. And Edna Spalding. And Mrs. Gump.
Above all, she is Norma Rae.
In other words, conflicted. Emotional. Mature.
And yes, she's SPECTAULAR.

What's it about?
Sex. Celebrity. Scandal. Just another fun day in Hollywood…
over Hollywood, men are dialing O. Her steamy naughty talk fills them
with lust and longing, and helps them perform like the studs they claim
truth, the industry’s favorite phone sex operator is Nina Harte, a
struggling actress who has put her career on hold so that her husband,
Nathan, can pursue his own dreams of stardom. When Nathan's career
takes off, so does he, leaving Nina and their four-year-old son, Jake,
for his diva costar, Katerina McPherson. Then "Kat ‘n' Nat" are crowned
the media's newest celebrity sweethearts, and Kat labels Nina an unfit
mother in order to win custody of Jake, just so that she can have that
highly-coveted celebrity accessory—an adorable child—sans any unsightly
stretch marks.The one person who does care about Nina is
Nathan’s agent, Sam Godwin. In fact, he’s in love with her. And because
he has both a heart and a conscience, Sam feels guilty for having put
Nat in Kat's path in the first place….
So how will he feel when he finds out that Nin and O are one and the same?
