Paul Feig Teaches You How to Be 40

“Forty is the line of demarcation that says you’re an adult now. You’re an adult, so don’t pretend you’re a kid anymore. Here’s what you don’t want to do (and this is just how to be me, which I don’t recommend): You don’t want to get older than you should be, and you don’t want to be younger than you should be… Keep up with things just to have an appreciation of them — knowing full well that it will horrify some younger people. Because the last thing they want is their dad coming in going, ‘Hey, what’re you listening to?’ and dancing around the room going, ‘This is pretty groovy!’”
- One of Paul Feig's four tips for turning 40 gracefully. Because no one wants to be that old dude wearing a backwards "ball cap", singing along to Selena Gomez.
