Cradle-Robbing

Moniz So, in last season of Damages, Jill the cradle-robbing gallery owner who has stolen away Patty Hewes’ teenage son was said to have received her PhD in 1988. I was 16 in 1988. I don’t think she could’ve been younger than 26 in 1988 unless she was a prodigy. That would make her 47 now. This season she is knocked up by the kid. The magic of fertility drugs?

The actress, Wendy Moniz, is not 47. She is a good looking 41. I hate it when shows don’t keep the age continuity correct. But possibly worse, is that they couldn’t use an actress in her late 40s because then the line from scandalous but conceivable would cross into gross and unacceptable?

47-year-old actresses include: classic cougar Demi Moore, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jodi Foster, Ally Sheedy, Joan Cusack, Gina Gershon, Laura San Giacomo and Jasmine guy. Also, Melissa Sue Anderson.
