Yes, I know, it does everybody. Even me. I don't look like the twin of my high school graduation picture anymore. But I got to wondering how the other heartthrobs of my younger days were looking now. And at the risk of being called chauvinistic, I decided to post a few of them.
But not all have aged badly. Some look pretty damn good for their age....
(she's the one on the left. Lindsey Lohan just wishes she'll look that good at that age...)
Hollywood, being Hollywood, you can't say for sure whether these pictures are the real results of age or if the good-looking ones just have more plastic in their bodies than a truck of bottled water. And this is not meant as a commentary on getting old as much as a regret that our fleeting fantasies of the beauties of our memories do not keep up with the reality. I still have my Farrah Fawcett poster from the 70's, but even she barely resembled it towards the end of her life. And I'd still rather remember Ann_Margret ca. 1964 (Viva Las Vegas ) than from the 1990s ( Grumpy old Men )
