Elle magazine is profiling 25 women under the age of 25 in celebration of their 25th anniversary. The magazine also shot four covers featuring Megan Fox, Lauren Conrad, Amanda Seyfried (you can see her cover below), and Gabourey Sidibe.
Megan told Elle people don’t take her seriously as a bride because she’s only 24 (even though she and Brian Austin Green have been dating- with the exception of a brief split- since 2004).
“When I talk about my husband [Brian Austin Green], I feel as if people roll their eyes. It’s like when you’re 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says, ‘Do you think I’m stupid?’ They can’t grasp that I’m old enough to be married.”
I know a lot of people wait to get married these days, but is 24 considered that young to be getting married?
Lauren shares the best part about being in her twenties:
“It’s your time to be selfish; you still have freedom. I was never that girl who just wanted babies. I wanted a career before all of that.
Amanda shares the best and worst (come ON!) thing about turning 25:
“The best thing is, I’m happy. The worst is that I’m scared; the scariest thing is that I know it can’t be easy-the years to come.”
Gabourey shares how she celebrated her 25th birthday:
“Part of me thought it would be weird if people knew I was a grown-up playing a teenager in Precious. So I had a twenty-first-birthday party. We had drinks and went to a strip club called Shotgun Willie’s.”
Sounds like quite a celebration!
