We should look so good ...

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

Women of a certain age won't be surprised by this at all.

A survey by More magazine found 87 percent of the population believes women experience age discrimation at some point in their lives. One in five men and women ages 40-60 believe being over 40 has hurt them professionally.

The poll is part of a "Breaking the Age Barrier" special report in the November issue. Women, by the way, say age discrimination begins at 43 for women and 47 for men, while men say it happens at 42 for women and 46 for men.

So what does this have to do with movies?

Well, More magazine also asked poll respondents about the sexiest 40-plus celebrity and the winner was ... Demi Moore, who will be 46 on Nov. 11. She landed in first place, while Michelle Pfeiffer, 50, and Denzel Washington, 53, tied in second place.

None, however, are currently in any of the top 10 movies at the box office. In fact, except for a couple of titles, namely "Changeling" and "Pride and Glory," the top-grossing movies are either aimed or patronized by younger people.
