GMA: Differences In Aging Between Men and Women
Linda Wells, Editor in Chief of Allure magazine, said that women are feeling far more pressure to look young. Women are afraid of sagging skin, wrinkles and grey hair. According to a survey in Allure, women with grey hair are considered old, whereas men with grey hair are considered “distinguished.” Good Morning America used George Clooney as an example. No one seemed to mention that George Clooney has a wonderful, full head of hair. Of course he’s distinguished. What about someone like Larry David from Curb Your Enthusiasm who is balding with grey hair? In any case, 66 percent of men told Allure they don’t feel the pressure to look young. I’m willing to bet all of those men have full heads of hair.
