Huh 35 and what

The 35 and over list was totally out of sorts where was Channing Tatum, Kiera knightly, Nicole Kidman why was Ben Affleck so high. No mention of Michelle Pfeiffer in legends and how could the Leo and Charlize be expected to make cinema pushing movies for forty to fifty years there five years from fifty.

Sean and CR are great.
