Do You Feel Sharp at Your Age?

Posted on

“You have to be kidding me! I’m feeling like a big, dull, weird dullard these days. I am so far past my prime. I’m sorry, what was the question? See? Gotcha, didn’t I?”

—RAINN WILSON, 43

“I feel sharper at my age. There is a level of maturity and wisdom that comes with age. If I knew at 22 what I know now, oh God, that would have been dangerous.”

—STAR JONES, 47

“I surround myself with New Yorkers and quick-witted people. Like if there’s a pause in a sentence with my mother she’s like, ‘Hello?’ So you never really have the chance to be stupid.”

—LEAH REMINI, 38

“I am the sharpest when I’m working, but boy, I’m a long way from 27. That’s why I can’t answer questions like this. It’s obviously true.”

—JANE KRAKOWSKI, 40

“Well, now I feel like an idiot because you just told me that. I still feel sharp. If I’ve been getting dumber since I was 22, the world is going to have a big problem.”

—KRISTEN BELL, 28
