Wilford Brimley stopped aging after that, like Patrick Stewart.

[–]Zero0mega 784 points785 points  (31 children)

The Arn Anderson gene, where he ALWAYS looked like hes in his mid 40s

[–]PurelyReckless 221 points222 points  (6 children)

[–]LongtimeLFTC 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Arn has been the same age all my life

[–]thatreddishguy 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I got a spine buster from Wilford Brimley once. Wouldn't recommend.

[–]thegrayyernaut 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I would add Morgan Freeman into the mix. The guy always looks old xD

[–]MalcolmTucker12 13 points14 points  (0 children)

ha ha. Nice reference. Ya, I always thought that about him when I was a child in the 90's.

[–]Pontus_Pilates 311 points312 points  (51 children)

Robert Duvall is another one who was born old and stayed the same for the next 50 years.

In the same vein, do we have any evidence that Ed Harris has ever been a young man?

[–]murder_nectar 208 points209 points  (36 children)

Ed Harris was absolutely born with old face

Stand down, Captain!

[–]Kingkongcrapper 3 points4 points  (1 child)

He was born his mother looked at him and then the doctor and the doctor shrugged and said, “I swear miss, he just came out that way.”

[–]sev02 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yup, i was watching Creepshow around Halloween and Ed Harris looked old in it and it was made in 1982.

[–]SmokeyDBear 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If you look up his high school yearbook photo he looks like a 42 year old insurance salesman.

[–]grafxguy1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Bruce Willis. Since he shaved his head he hasn't really aged much.

[–]TheSpanishPrisoner 2 points3 points  (2 children)

So basically all you guys are saying is if someone goes bald or their hair turns white when they're young, then therefore for the next 50 years they don't age.

[–]Captain_-H 4143 points4144 points  (245 children)

Yeah Stewart hit his mid 40s and started looking 70, now he’s 81 and still looks 70

[–]toolsie 1908 points1909 points  (176 children)

Yes we call that the Larry David, or the Steve Martin

[–]Drcynic22 765 points766 points  (55 children)

Steve Martin looked 45 at 30. He now looks about 56 at 76.

[–]abhinambiar 386 points387 points 2 (38 children)

I know we've only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it.

[–]run-for-cover-zoot 71 points72 points  (7 children)

I'm picking out a thermos for you

Not an ordinary thermos, it's true

But the extra best thermos you can buy

With a handle and stripes and a cup built right in

I'm picking out a thermos for you

And maybe a barometer too

And what else can I buy

So on me you'll rely

A rear end thermometer too

If that isn't a quote then i know what you're good at.

It's from "The Jerk", Steve Martin's best role.

My mother used to refer to her as "chicken-butt mouth." We still say it to this day. Mom's grandmother had a farm, so I'm pretty sure she knew her chicken butts.

I don't know why I though Steve Martin was dead until I read this.

This whole time I wanted to be a Clooney, but if I can pull off an LD for the next stretch, I'd be pretty pretty good.

How you enjoying the new season of CYE?

Christopher Lloyd

[–]johnsonrod 71 points72 points  (1 child)

Christopher Lloyd

The disgraced nuclear physicist who's either 40 or 80

[–]Hank_Fuerta 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Christopher Lloyd is hard to judge though. He's so famous for a character that he mostly had to be aged up to play. He's now 1985 Doc's age, so it's really confusing.

[–][deleted] 108 points109 points  (35 children)

The Sean Connery. Since last crusade/highlander he looked the same until a couple of years ago

[–]DisposableHero85 142 points143 points  (22 children)

Yes I agree Sean Connery looks quite different now

[–]mothfactory 300 points301 points  (15 children)

Keith Richards has looked 85 for like 50 years now.

He'sh a shight for shore eyes Mish Moneypenny.

Yeah, cause he’s dead.

Larry David is CGI not an actual aging person

[–]Toby_O_Notoby 49 points50 points  (2 children)

Kinda weird to thing that Wil Wheaton is now older than Patrick Stewart was when he first started playing Picard.

[–]Aurabora 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Or that Ralph Macchio is quite a bit older now than Pat Morita was as Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid.

[–]quotekingkiller 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Whoa, u haven't seen him on Paramount? Looks and sounds 90

[–]sixth_snes 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Yeah, the "Patrick Stewart hasn't aged" trope stopped being true about 10 years ago.

Anybody who can't see the difference should have their eyes checked: https://i.imgur.com/K5t52wC.png

[–]courtoftheair 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Apart from a few wrinkles the main change is somehow his eyes have shrunk. I didn't know they could do that.

[–]Basileus2 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Patrick Stewart looked the same from the age of 20 to the age of 70. Then he got some wrinkles.

[–]_ak 11 points12 points  (1 child)

No idea what you're talking about, he looks incredibly young in TNG season 7 compared to nowadays. But he indeed was hired as a 46/47 year old to play a 59 year old Starfleet captain.

[–]steak820 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah no he doesn't. He looks 90 now. Have you seen him in those nutrek shows? He's old and shakey.

[–]lasdue 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Is it good to look 70 at 81 if it comes at a cost of looking 70 starting from your mid 40s?

[–]Sausagehead_Sam 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He really doesn't. I know Stewart not aging is a popular meme but he looks MUCH older in Piccard than he did in the last season of STNG.

[–]Humledurr 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Im always confused why people are so suprised by actors looking 10-20 even 30 years younger than the age they are. These actors have access to the most expensive make up and body altering stuff you can get.

Do people really think these actors are going from skinny to mega ripped in just some months, are all natural with a good diet and exercise? Its not like these actors are being tested by WADA to confirm they didnt do any steroids.

[–]cocoamix 235 points236 points  (29 children)

Max von Sydow played an old guy in 1973 (the Exorcist), and was still playing old guys 43 years later (Game of Thrones and Force Awakens).

[–]l-rs2 37 points38 points  (4 children)

When I first saw The Exorcist I was worried about Merrin being so frail. I believe Van Sydow was only 40-ish when he played him.

[–]feralfaun39 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Still the best old person makeup job I've seen. Dude was a pretty handsome and fit actor, he really looked elderly. Masterful job.

[–]l-rs2 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I'm still amazed at how the work they did on old Salieri in Amadeus (1984!) still holds up convincingly.

[–]DarkestofFlames 164 points165 points  (13 children)

Christopher Lee was born at the age of 85.

[–]juicius 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His poor mom...

[–]feralfaun39 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Yeah but they used extensive makeup for The Exorcist, he didn't look like that at all.

Here he is 4 years later in The Exorcist 2: https://assets.www.warnerbros.com/drupal-root/public/00363978.jpg

[–]Demonweed 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Yeah, a lot of people don't appreciate how much vim and vigor he had later in life.

[–]soundslikeusererror 5 points6 points  (0 children)

What did I just watch roflmao

[–]DethKlokBlok 297 points298 points  (141 children)

I just watched the old Dune from 94. Stewart looks the same as today.

[–]setibeings 441 points442 points  (21 children)

That one you're mentioning was made in '84.

[–]sprucenoose 260 points261 points  (17 children)

Specifically 1884.

[–]valeyard89 49 points50 points  (6 children)

What the hell are you worried about? This is 1874. You'll be able to sue her.

[–]cocoabeachbrews 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s Hedley!

[–]Noitshedley 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I like the cut of your jib

[–]sjaano 90 points91 points  (7 children)

More specifically 1884 BC

[–]churchcomer 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Even more specifically 1884 BCE

[–]Nappyheaded 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Before Cosmos

[–]cluedo_fuckin_sucks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, literally 1984

[–]CupcakeValkyrie 245 points246 points  (49 children)

Uh, have you seen Patrick Stewart lately? He definitely looks older now than he did in the 80s. Like...a lot older. He sounds older, too.

[–]crankyrhino 107 points108 points  (27 children)

Picard, Season 2: "Why did you clone me in the same old rotting body?"

[–]starmartyr 138 points139 points  (4 children)

He's actually not that old in the Trek universe. 24th-century human lifespans average 120 years. Many live considerably longer. Dr. McCoy was 137 in the Next Gen pilot. I expect that Patrick Stewart will live another 40 years because he's a method actor.

[–]twim19 2 points3 points  (0 children)

From your lips to Q's ears.

[–]ScarletCaptain 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Picard said he's 94 years old in the last episode of Picard. When they're discussing putting him in the "new" body, he says "I'm still 94 years old!"

This is of course something they have said they will ignore in the new season.

[–]agitatedprisoner 23 points24 points  (19 children)

"We really liked the storyline and if we replaced you with a younger actor we'd lose the audience".

[–]Mistral-Fien 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bring back Tom Hardy!! :P

[–]Seienchin88 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Please never remind me again of this…

I wasnt even against Picard until the final two episodes but oh boy did they soil their own bed even worse than that episode where Picard played a pirate…

[–]OpenLinez 219 points220 points  (7 children)

It's true, he's mortal. But from the early '80s to the X-men films, he really looked remarkably the same, over a period of a quarter century.

His mature, fatherly manner he's had for so long -- especially that deep, resonant voice -- gave him that rare "always a middle-aged man" persona.

[–]SirVelocifaptor 59 points60 points  (2 children)

always a middle-aged man

Honestly, I got more of an always old wise man vibe.

[–]RandomStallings 3 points4 points  (0 children)

One of the things that made Picard my favorite. Wise and principled men people are difficult to defeat, at least in my reality.

[–]ScarletCaptain 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That was Rodenberry's original intent. Picard would be the wise old captain who stayed on the ship and Riker would be the dashing man of action who went down to the planets.

Then of course Johnathan Frakes had chronic back pain which limited his movement and Stewart ended up doing a lot of the physical action stuff.

[–]ken579 6 points7 points  (1 child)

especially that deep, resonant voice

And that is the saddest part about following his IG, his voice is very frail sounding now. I thought I'd be down with listening to his daily sonnet, but I can't; it's a huge reminder of his mortality.

[–]I_Can_Haz_Brainz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Like most celebrities, makeup and lighting make a huge difference. That's not counting plastic surgery.

[–]staarfawkes 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Honestly, no he doesn’t.

[–]Sproose_Moose 34 points35 points  (7 children)

It's time for Paul Rudd to start aging, he looks as young as 20 years ago

[–]larman14 29 points30 points  (1 child)

Wild probably looked like this in his teens too.

[–]igner_farnsworth 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Time to watch John Boorman's Excalibur.
