    Default Evolution: famous faces changing with age

    How cruel time can be, changing us from strong, healthy and sometimes even beautiful
    creatues into old, wrinkly, crooked, shriveled up versions of ourselves. Of course
    there are two worse alternatives: death or (botched) PS interfering with the natural
    aging process...... This is not a thread on who aged the worst. It's to see how
    people's looks changed as years advanced.

    Bette Davis (1908-1989)

    8 months old

    teenager (16)

    twen

    thirties

    forties

    fifties

    sixties

    seventies, before her illness

    seventies after she became ill with cancer and a stroke

    1989, not long before her death at 81


    James Stewart (1908-1997)



    James the toddler

    teenager

    twen

    thirties

    forties

    fifties

    sixties, public image

    sixties, sans toupet

    seventies

    eighties

    Thanks for the pics, HWBL. Bette Davis' appearance changed remarkably from when she was in her 30's to her 40's. The same with James Stewart.

    I noticed that as well, and I had to go back and check the ages to make sure I was reading right. Now women in their 40s look so youthful, and it's jarring to see that much age on Bette for that age. I think most of it is the use of sunscreen and less smoking now than in years past. I don't know many regular women who've had nips or tucks or Botox, but most will slap on sunscreen and try to take care of their skin.

    No amount of ps changes the fact that time is cruel, effing cruel.

    Bette Davis seemed to change overnight when she had a baby. Not for the better.

    July 1967, age 45, two years before her death, ravaged by years of alcohol & pill abuse.


    Clark Gable (Feb. 1, 1901 - Nov. 16, 1960)

    It's sad what happened to Judy...all those years of drug addiction certainly took its toll on her looks.


    Clark Gable became better looking as he aged. I didn't realize how large Clark Gable's ears were.

    Gable aged really well, imho. And I had no idea Jimmy Stewart wore a toupee! That was some quality hairpiece.

    It's interesting how Bette's eyes were always so remarkable. Even as the rest of her face changed, those eyes stayed much the same.

    I blame lack of knowledge on what cigarettes, alcohol and sun can do to your health for alot if the aging process though.

    Poor Judy Garland. Addiction certainly got its teeth in her and marked her face before it was all said and done.
