Plot Watch: The Premature Aging of Celebrities

Share

Senior Moments: This month, Brad Pitt gets his wrinkle on in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, as a man who ages in reverse for 80-plus years. Here, a look at other films that famously piled on the prosthetics: Who grew older gracefully - and who should have sounded their medic-alert button in the makeup room?


BACK TO THE FUTURE II, 1989
The setup: 'Cause it worked so well the first time, Marty, Doc, and that steel-trap DeLorean crash-land in 2015 to further muck up the McFly clan.
Growth spurt: 30 years
Age-o-meter: In their tacky wigs, faux forehead folds, and high-waist pants, Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson (above) were more Mad magazine than AARP.


FOR THE BOYS, 1991
The setup: Scenery gobbler Bette Midler heads overseas to ham it up for the troops during wartime.
Growth spurt: 50 years
Age-o-meter: The divine goes dysmorphic, thanks to latex overload. The barely recognizable Miss M. is rendered Jabba the Hutt's mother in garish lipstick.


THE HOURS, 2002
The setup: A conflicted, Stepfordish housewife bakes a cake, lays a smooch on her neighbor, and considers suicide. Growth spurt: 40 years
Age-o-meter: Flawless. Usually luminous Julianne Moore could have sauntered into Bob's Big Boy to score an early-bird special in that disguise and no one would have batted a bifocaled eye.


THE GOOD SHEPHERD, 2006
The setup: Matt Damon helps kick-start the creation of the Central Intelligence Agency.
Growth spurt: 22 years
Age-o-meter: What aging? Studioheads apparently couldn't bring themselves to unpretty Damon and Angelina Jolie with a liver spot or two. Is the CIA hiding the fountain of youth?
