Ever wonder at what age you'll be considered too old to do the things you love? Well the results of a newly published British survey are here to tell you just that.
Last month Retiresavvy surveyed 2,000 British people to discover their attitudes towards aging and the results they obtained are pretty grim by all accounts.
“Wearing skinny jeans is not acceptable after you turn 47,” reports the retirement planning website, and once you hit 40 “going on a lads’ or girls’ holiday is out if the question”.
The survey revealed that having a favourite boyband and using text talk isn’t acceptable past 36, while getting tattoos and piercings are activities which should be reserved for those under 38 (we wonder what Dame Judi Dench and her new tat would think of that).
To put the results into context: 37-year-old Kate Hudson might be young enough to bare her bum on Insta but is too old to like boybands, 41-year-old Angelina Jolie can wow on any red carpet but is too old to go on holiday with her friends and 47-year-old Jennifer Anistion can still rock a bikini but needs to reconsider her jean collection.
In some non-ageist news, social media is supposedly acceptable at any age so at least you can Tweet away your anger about not being allowed wear skinny jeans into your fifties.
And thankfully women are more likely than men to reject the stereotypes of old age so hopefully those who are rocking their skinnies, tattoos and One Direction tees will happily continue to do so despite the survey’s findings.
