\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n \n Laura Dern was only 20 years old in "Jurassic Park" - as opposed to the then 40-year-old Sam Neill - and the Internet can't believe it ... even if we're not sure if it's a good thing. \ud83e\udd14\n The actress dropped this bomb in a new interview Sunday Timesclaimed to be only 23 years old when he starred in the original "JP" movie in 1993 ... and the man himself noticed the age difference from his actor at the time with jokes.\n \n \n Laura Dern was 23 when she starred in Jurassic Park with Sam Neill, 20 years older. Now the duo are back, they're talking @JonathanDean_ patriarchy, politics and paleontologyhttps:\/\/t.co\/TZbqJ0bUv2- Sunday Times Culture (@ST_Culture) May 22, 2022\n @ST_Culture\n \n \n\n\n\n\n Neill, who apparently did an interview with Dern, is quoted as revealing how much older she is \/ was than LD, saying ... "I'm 20 years older than Laura! What was a perfectly appropriate age difference at the time. A leading man and woman!"\n Dern agrees and explains, "Well, it seemed perfectly appropriate to fall in love with Sam Neill. And only now, when we returned from the moment of cultural consciousness from the patriarchy, was I like, 'Wow! are you not of the same age? "\n \n \n Dern: \u201cWell, it felt perfectly appropriate to fall in love with Sam Neill. And only now, when we returned for a moment when we felt cultural awareness of patriarchy, was I like, "Wow! Aren't we the same age?" pic.twitter.com\/Q37jEuRbJf- Sunday Times Culture (@ST_Culture) May 22, 2022\n @ST_Culture\n \n \n\n\n\n\n People grabbed this for a few reasons ... one, some interpret Dern\u2019s quote as a sarcastic and kind of comment to the idea that a woman of Sam\u2019s age (then) couldn\u2019t or couldn\u2019t be a cast \u2014 apparently touching double standards in business.\n Of course, Laura herself didn't say this exactly ... and that argument doesn't hold water alongside the source material (book) and considering Dr. Grant and Sattler are described as being 40 and 20 years old. His character was always meant to be younger.\n \n \n I found out that this muthafucka was 23's in Jurassic Park \ud83d\ude31\ud83d\ude31\ud83d\ude31 pic.twitter.com\/pyG4NH6Pqd- Brad's Imaginarium Emporium \ud83c\udfa8 (@BradRadcock) May 22, 2022\n @BradRadcock\n \n \n\n\n\n\n More importantly, the 23-year-old note is news to many that Dern was so young in the film. As many have pointed out, he looks considerably older - at least at the age of 30.\n Some have downplayed his 23-year-old claim - based on his birthday and the time the film was filmed, he may have been closer to 25 or 26 - but people are still amazed that Dern was able to go much older then ... and how good he looks now at 55- at the age of. So ... thanks ???\n \r\nLaura Dern Reveals She Was Only 23 Years Old in Original 'Jurassic Park' Source link Laura Dern Reveals She Was Only 23 Years Old in Original 'Jurassic Park'
