And these are the photos I added over in the Facebook comments:
NEVER has a movie star looked more different? Bullcrap, and indeed outrageously sexist.
Oh, hell, no. Anthony Hopkins was a young actor back in the 1970s and yet just look how much he changed between 1978’s Magic and 1991’s Silence of the Lambs. And yet neither he nor the actors MaryAnn has already mentioned are the only male movie stars who have visibly aged over the years.
Heck, look at how much Frank Langella changed from the days he played Count Dracula in the 1970s to the physically less flattering roles he played in the 1990s. And for further proof, just check out the recent magazine photos of actor Warren Beatty and compare it to how he looked in the late 1970s.
It is no big secret that time is often more harsher to older women than it is to older men; older women have been saying as much since long before All About Eve was released. But Father Time is not always that kind to older men, either. Anyone who tells you different is probably yadda, yadda, yadda…
But Bradshaw never wanted to fuck Brando, you see…
My few examples were not meant to be comprehensive. :-)

Is it, though? Or is thinking that merely a reflection of how much more youth is valued in women than in men?

….dunno why…a helluva lotta people wanted to fuck him when he was young.
Maybe he heard about the way Brando treated Maria Schneider.
I wrote “fuck him”, not be fucked by him.
Not that it even matters, but am I the only one who thought she looked great in her later years?
