Actor Andrew McCarthy caused a stir on ‘The View’ when a lighthearted comment about aging left co-host Whoopi Goldberg visibly uncomfortable.

McCarthy, 61, appeared on the show to discuss his new Hulu documentary, ‘Brats’, which explores the cultural impact of the iconic 1980s Brat Pack.

Reflecting on his career and aging, McCarthy quipped:

“Well, I thought it would be good to do while we were still ambulatory. In that vein, I turned 60 last year and when you get old, and 60 is the beginning of old, you start to-.”

The camera captured Goldberg’s strained expression in response to the remark, prompting quick efforts by her co-hosts to lighten the mood. Joy Behar playfully teased Goldberg, stating:

“Well, you’re not 60, yet,” adding humorously, “I think a half century does it, too.”

Moving past the moment, McCarthy continued to discuss his evolving perspective on his career and the Brat Pack era, explaining how his initial disdain for the group transformed into appreciation over time.

The documentary features a reunion of select Brat Pack members, offering insights into their shared experiences and the impact of youthful stardom on their lives. McCarthy and his peers recently walked the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival, reconnecting after decades apart.

Reflecting on their past dynamics, McCarthy shared:

“The irony is that when the Brat Pack was sort of created it ended it in a kind of a way,” noting that revisiting their stories allowed them to reconnect on a deeper level.

As the conversation navigated themes of aging and nostalgia, Behar interjected:

“It’s one of the beauties of getting older,” a sentiment McCarthy echoed, describing the Brat Pack as “the avatars of youth for a certain generation.”

McCarthy’s appearance on ‘The View’ not only highlighted his documentary but also sparked candid reflections on aging and the enduring legacy of the Brat Pack in Hollywood history.
