Taylor Kitsch is very popular on Midlifexpress this week.

Taylor Kitsch: What happened to your career? asks why the actor, despite his smouldering good looks and ripped physique, is unable to crack the Hollywood A list.

A follow up story comparing Taylor’s movie choices and Eric Bana’s woeful string of flops, also got lots of hits.

Could all this interest in their respective careers foreshadow a comeback? We hope so.

Jennifer Jason Leigh also rates well. Leigh’s role in the Quentin Tarantino movie The Hateful Eight revived her career and it’s fair to say this 57-year-old actress has hardly aged a day since she came to fame as a teenager in 1982s  Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Why Greta Scacchi looks better than Helen Mirren  proved popular. Mdlifexpress celebrates the middle-aged Scacchi’s choice to remain botox and plastic surgery free and rejects the pressure placed on actresses to always look young. Scacchi believes that a naturally ageing face is a much needed antidote to Hollywood’s youth obsessed culture.

The 1990s on High Rotation also made it into the top five articles this week. Sue Bell discusses her experience working for MTV and their obession with playing the same videos all day.

Speaking of videos, Midlifexpress just added several more to our YouTube channel, including PennyWise vs The Joker. Did you know that Americans are more afraid of clowns than climate change?

Finally, the most popular article on Midlifexpress this week for the fourth year in a row is The Force Awakens but what happened to Carrie Fisher’s face?

This beloved actress is sorely missed.
