Jennifer O’Neill: ‘I’m A ReZoomer, Not A Boomer

NASHVILLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Jennifer O’Neill had her biggest period of fame when she starred in the 1971 film, Summer Of ’42, but she feels her star is shining brightest just weeks before she turns 59.

But that’s because she considers herself and the members of her generation as “ReZoomers,” not boomers. As she puts it, “I admit getting my AARP card ruined my day, but I honestly have never felt better or more effective.”

O’Neill figures others in her age bracket feel the same way, which is why she’s signed on as the spokeswoman for, a website dedicated to “the generation that never grows old.”

She figures boomers have gotten somewhat of a bum rap from other age groups and says the website is one way of “going from being selfish to selfless, and turning success to significance.”

Although the children of the ’60s are becoming the grandparents of the 21st century, O’Neill says boomers better understand how it feels to be young that previous generations of oldsters.

As she puts it, “We DO know how to horrify our parents. Been there. Done that. Didn’t get a T-shirt.”
