Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

I recently read Unqualified by Anna Faris. At one point she casually mentioned that it's now illegal to ask a celebrity her age. What the what? When did this become a law, and why? What's the punishment for breaking it?

A:

Dear Cactus,

According to this article I found, it is illegal to ask about the applicant's age, as well as other topics such as religion or outstanding debts. Anne, Certainly clarified (even though neither of us are lawyers technically) that, while the asking of the question might not exactly be illegal, using that information to discriminate against someone in the hiring process certainly would be. So, it would be better for an employer not to ask so they can avoid the potential legal problems with discrimination and what not.

In this case, though, I'm pretty sure Anna Faris is just being hyperbolic.

Dear Cc,

Frère has this covered already, but it isn't even necessary to ask a celebrity their age. Wikipedia informs us Anna Farris is 40 years old.

Suerte,
