Is it ageist to say we don’t want to hear Tommy Lee Jones talking about sex? No disrespect to the man; he’s happily married and has a certain gruff and husky charm. However, there’s something about hearing this renowned grouch discussing threesomes and sexual fantasies that sends a chilly shiver down the spine. Hope Springsis akin to the first time your parents tried to explain the birds and the bees – you don’t want to think of these people as sexual beings, but as the talk continues you’re left with little choice.
