Freeman, Nicholson comfortable aging

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- Actors Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson said that, for them, it's not so bad being a senior citizen in Hollywood.

The Oscar winners -- who are both 70 -- co-star in "The Bucket List," Rob Reiner's new film about terminally ill hospital roommates who set off to accomplish all the things they'd always wanted to do.

"Senior citizenship is a mental thing. I don't feel senior. Of course, when I look in the mirror in the morning, there it all is," Freeman told reporters in Los Angeles recently. "But, thank heavens, I don't know what it feels like to be 70 except to feel the way I feel, which isn't 70, but is."

"I'll tell you one thing. As a senior, when I look in the mirror in the morning, I can't see myself," joked Nicholson, who is rarely seen off-screen without his trademark sunglasses. "When I turned 70 was actually the first time since 50 that I felt young for my age. … We're fortunate in that, other than 'Spider-Man' and so forth, movie audiences are also moving along, so to speak, hence I think the resonance of this picture, 'The Bucket List.'"
