50+ Birthdays are usually noted by magazines and websites focused on the Boomer and Senior generations.  AARP just noted several August birthdays for some entertainment industry notables who just turned 50, 60, 70, 80 and 90.

See article here.

What is the psychology of why these articles get written? For the same reason I’m writing this now.  It makes us 50+ folks feel good!  We enjoy looking at people who we’ve known in the news, film, politics etc.  We enjoy seeing “how good they look” for their age.  That makes us feel good because we identify with them and feel that we also look good.  Or, we think, “Gee, he (or she) looks pretty great for 70, I guess I’m not so old looking either”.

Let us know your reasons for liking to see your favorite stars or other notables as they age.
