A few depressing facts you may or may not know:
1. Everyone will eventually get OLD.
2. Seeing other people age is just another reminder that you TOO are getting old.
3. Aging sucks.
4. And finally, celebrities only remind us of how much aging sucks.
Seriously, how often have you seen some celebrity, that you crushed on during your YOUTH, only to find out that they are now OLD. Total Bummer.
Join me in this shocking, and somewhat depressing walk down old people’s lane.
JOHN TAYLOR from Duran Duran is now 51. FIFTY freakin’ ONE!! Oh those feathery, highlighted bangs. Sigh.
DUCKIE!! 46 freakin’ years old. Why Duckie, why?
Et tu Mike Bender? 50!!! You can’t be 50! Fingerless gloves and grungy clothes do not a hot 50 year old make.
In fact, I did some very scientific IMDB research, and it kind of seems like most of the lovely young things from our favorite 80’s flicks – Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Breakfast Club – are all at least 50.
It’s just not cool, this aging thing.
This is not right.
At least we still have The Geek.
At a young 43, he’s still in my good books. For now.
So, I would love to hear what celebrity has shocked you recently, with their oldness. Do tell.
