A Movie Extra, At 75... Thank You, Academy!

"What are 5 reasons not to fear aging?"

Posted Feb 02, 2013

A journalist recently asked me “What are 5 reasons not to fear aging?”

I could have come up with 2,013 reasons.

Take this story about a former student’s grandmother, Evelyne Aronin, who, at age 75, lives to be a movie extra.

Yes, it is Academy Awards season.

Look closely – you may recognize her from Bourne Legacy or Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.  Ms. Agronin has been doing this work for 34 years (298 movies!), and continues to play a fabulous “upscale matron.”

Reason not to fear aging? You can finally do what you’ve always wanted to do.
