Picture this. A 22-year old actress who has won an Oscar, is asked at her press conference: “You’re awfully young to have so much success so far. Do you feel it’s a good thing? You’re not worried about peaking too soon?”

Fortunately, this did bring much laughter, as did her answers to other questions. When I watched this, I thought Jennifer may well have wished she was being questioned by Caesar Flickerman instead.
How can a young person ever feel they’ve ‘peaked too soon’?
What is she to say? “Oh yes. I’m terrified I’m going to suffer burnout at 30.”
