Veteran actors Michael Douglas and Robert De Niro believe that ageing in very depressing.
During a joint interview with a UK publication, when the Last Vegas co-stars were asked what was the best thing about growing old, Douglas simply said "Nothing," News.com.au reported.
While agreeing with the 69-year-old star, De Niro said that younger people tend to ignore the elderly.
De Niro explained that when the youth sees that someone is one or two generations older than they are, they are just not interested.
Later in the interview, Douglas, however, noted that the positive things about getting old is that you are more comfortable with yourself, you don't have to prove anything and you accept who you are.
He added that even though there are a lot of changes on the outside, but from the inside you still feel like a child.
