What is with you?? Women age! They get "work" done. It aint pretty, but live with it!

I'm waiting for the post about Tommy Lee Jones' toupee or Harrison Ford's bulging beltline or Burt Reynold's pinched cheeks.

Ah, but you've missed my point.

Harrison Ford's beltline bulge is a more or less natural consequence of his aging. Burt's knife-work makes him look like a corpse.

What bugs me is folks ('though usually women) who don't want to look like they're 50. So they get cut and injected and pulled and pumped. And they then don't look 50, they look ridiculous.

And you're right to cite toupees. My personal solution to that problem has been a 1/8 inch buzz cut.

You might compare a photo of them at 35 or 40 with this photo.

I haven't seen any posts with photos of a man's 20-year old self contrasted with photos of his 60 year old self, sans plastic surgery.
