This Week's Inspirational Pop Culture Moments

A famous director shares more thoughts on aging, a musician rocks out on the golf course, and Movember gets hairy. Here are this week's most inspirational pop culture moments.

Nora Ephron: Telling Tales About Aging That Women Can Relate To

Betty White aside, there’s not a lot of attention being paid to women in their twilight years. In fact, they’re probably the most forgotten demographic out there. Enter Nora Ephron. The 69-year-old writer/director of films like Sleepless in Seattle and Julie & Julia is speaking on behalf of her contemporaries.

In 2006, she released the book
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman, addressing the issues of aging with the deft humor that she wielded in When Harry Met Sally.

Now, rather than cranking out another romantic comedy for posterity, Ephron has returned to the trials and tribulations of women aging, yet again. Her new collection of essays is called I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections. Luckily for all those female fans, who can relate to Ephron’s musings… she can remember enough to make them laugh at the sometimes not-so-funny realities of getting older.

We don’t know what keeps Ephron going strong at 69 and helps her maintain her sense of humor. But whatever it is, we’ll have what she’s having.
