Male leads in romantic films are on average four and a half years older than their female co-stars, a new study has found.
The 37-year-old actress revealed that she was turned down for a part because she was deemed too old to star alongside the 55-year-old male lead.
After looking at cast information for 422 films released between 1984 and 2014, he found that there was never a time that the average age of female leads was older than their male counterparts.
Robert Redford, Dudley Moore and Richard Gere have the largest age gaps among Hollywood actors, while Julia Roberts, Debra Winger and Winona Ryder have traditionally been much younger than their co-stars.
Sydney Pollack had the largest average age gap between his »
Well folks, after a rather long and brutal winter (at least for me here in Buffalo), we are finally heading into the wonderful warmth of summer, but with that blast of sunshine and steamy humidity comes the mid-year drought of major film fests. After the Sheffield Doc/Fest concludes on June 10th and AFI Docs wraps on June 21st, we likely won’t see any major influx in our charts until Locarno, Venice, Telluride and Tiff announce their line-ups in rapid succession. In the meantime, we can look forward to the intriguing onslaught of films making their debut in Sheffield, including Brian Hill’s intriguing examination of Sweden’s most notorious serial killer, The Confessions of Thomas Quick, and Sean McAllister’s film for which he himself was jailed in the process of making, A Syrian Love Story, the only two films world premiering in the festival’s main competition. »

By the end of the year, many college graduates are probably sick of hearing the "sage" life advice which most adults within earshot insist on giving them as they prepare to enter the real world (Think "Plastics."). However, today's graduates, who are facing difficult job prospects and unbelievably high student loan debts in addition to the usual uncertainties associated with a major life change, are more in need of advice than ever. Luckily, many of them don't have to look too far to find it -- no further, in fact, than their university commencement ceremonies. The trend of celebrity commencement addresses isn't a new one, but it seems that every year the speeches get better and better. We've complied a few of our favorites below for your listening and viewing pleasure. Check them out now.

If you want to see two old veteran actors kicking it on a hike along the Appalachian Trail, you’re in luck! The first trailer for A Walk in the Woods, which stars Robert Redford and Nick Nolte, was released today, . Here’s the synopsis:
After spending two decades in England, Bill Bryson returns to the U.S., where he decides the best way to connect with his homeland is to hike the Appalachian Trail with one of his oldest friends.
Directed by Ken Kwapis (He’s Just Not That Into You and License to Wed), the film looks to be relatively up his alley, since he’s mostly known for directing comedy films and television shows. With that being said, the film is also based on the memoir by the actual Bill Bryson (played in the film by Robert Redford), so there’s hope that this comedy will be »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Tilda Swinton (Snowpiercer, Chronicles of Narnia) is in talks to join Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Imitation Game) in Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange as the Ancient One. If reports are true, this is yet another case of Marvel Studios hiring incredible actors in supporting roles. Swinton would join Robert Redford (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Glenn Close (Guardians of the Galaxy), and Michael Douglas (Ant-Man) in helping Marvel establish serious acting credibility in their films. Fans of the comic series are probably scratching their heads at this casting announcement. The Ancient One is usually portrayed in the comics as an older Tibetan man. In fact, earlier casting rumors had Ken Watanabe (Godzilla, Batman Begins) as someone Marvel was considering for the role. It'll be very interesting to see how Marvel tackles this new take on the character. Granted, with the acting chops Swinton possesses, I »

"We're not even halfway there!" Broad Green Pictures has debuted the trailer (+ poster) for A Walk in the Woods, a comedy starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte as two old friends who catch up for a hike on the Appalachian Trail. Along the way they run into the likes of Kristen Schaal, Emma Thompson, Mary Steenburgen, and Nick Offerman as an Rei employee. As much as this story should result in a charming and amusing adventure, it looks way too slapstick goofy – not in a good way – and utterly bland. This also plays like some sort of mainstream comedy, even though it premiered at Sundance; Ethan wrote a dismal review of it. Now I can see why. You may be curious enough to watch the trailer, but go no further than that. Here's the first official trailer for Ken Kwapis' A Walk in the Woods, direct from Moviefone: After spending two decades in England, »

In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Academy Award winner Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Academy Award winner Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail – 2,200 miles of America’s most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine.
The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek – his long lost and former friend Katz (Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, »

The healthy, prepared Reese Witherspoon was nearly destroyed by a long hike in Wild, so how do two cranky old geezers fare on the Appalachian Trail? We’ll find out in A Walk In The Woods, which has just put its first trailer online. You might think Robert Redford would have an advantage, having proven he can take what Mother Nature can dish out in All Is Lost. But here, he’s channelling comedy and travel writer Bill Bryson, who decided to challenge himself to hike the trail that runs from Georgia to Maine. While he thinks he has a good handle on it, no one wants to come with him, not even his wife (Emma Thompson).But then he does find a willing, if singularly unsuitable travelling companion in his former friend Steven Katz (Nick Nolte), who sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some long overdue debts. »
The first trailer for Ken Kwapis' adaptation of Bill Bryson's book, A Walk in the Woods, makes the movie look like a silly The Bucket List/Wild mash-up, but there's something about seeing Robert Redford and Nick Nolte playing two bumbling guys trying to hike the 2,200-mile Appalachian Trail that's still fun and charming. Redford leads the film as Bill Bryson, a travel writer who opts out of retiring and chooses to hike from Georgia to Maine instead. Trouble is, he can't go alone and the only person willing to go with him is Katz (Nolte), an estranged friend who uses the trip to bypass paying some debts. Check out the A Walk in the Woods trailer and poster below. The film is due in theaters nationwide on September 2nd and also stars Nick Offerman, Kristen Schaal, Mary Steenburgen and Emma Thompson.

It’s not quite “Grumpy Old Men on the Appalachian Trail,” but A Walk in the Woods mines the memoir by Bill Bryson for the story of two old guys, played by Robert Redford and Nick Nolte, as reconnected friends of old who take to the two-thousand mile trail. The adventure is an excuse for some light, genial comedy as […]

A Walk in the Woods premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival and was picked up by new distributor Broadgreen Pictures, though I have to admit I didn't hear much of anything about this little comedy adventure starring Nick Nolte and Robert Redford, though based on the look and description alone it seems like descriptors such as "light hearted" and "sweet" would likely suffice. Here's the plot: In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Academy Award winner Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Academy Award winner Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America's most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine.

The first trailer for Sundance Film Festival entry A Walk in the Woods has debuted online, and you can watch it below…
Based on the memoirs of Bill Bryson, Woods stars Marvel-vets Robert Redford (Captain American: Winter Soldier) and Nick Nolte (Hulk) as two old friends who team up to hike across the Appalachian Trial, across 2,100 miles. But rather than this being like Reese Witherspoon-starrer Wild, both men are in the golden age of life, and find it difficult to cope with the conditions surrounding them.
Directed by Ken Kwapis (He’s Not That Into You), A Walk in the Woods co-stars Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation), Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers) and Mary Steenburgen (Step Brothers), and opens in Us cinemas on September 2nd.
