Ben Stiller finds it difficult staying relevant.
The Hollywood star will turn 50 in November and admitted he has found aging tough because he always wants to stay current.
He confessed: ”It’s hard to stay current to whatever the current hipster hipness is. Pop culture moves so quickly now and peoples attention spans are so short.”
The Night at the Museum actor says getting older has been particularly difficult in the last few years, as it has felt like time has being moving quicker, and he is unable to remember as much as he did as a youngster.
He explained: ”I’m just amazed as I get older how time — you know that thing of how time goes faster? — I definitely feel that. And being able to hang on to the experience of things, I find that a little bit harder, too. Retaining memories.”
However, Ben revealed he’s hoping to revisit his youthful side in the sequel to his popular 2001 film Zoolander, which he is directing and starring in.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph‘s review section, he added: ”I’ve never directed a sequel. You want to try to make something that’s fresh and new and also honors what people loved about the first one. I’m just trying to go back to what makes us laugh.”
