Ozzy looks fine for 70. He can also sing really good still. He looks on par with other singers of the 70's. In fact he looks better now then in the 80's with his frumpy blonde overweight dad look. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards look worse in my opinion.

Wasn't that just a rep though? I've seen that show where she was finding a new best friend and she was pretty mad at one of the girls for being drunk. She said it's her duty to be decent and sober for her fans, made me see her in a whole different light. I could be wrong ofcourse, don't know much about her.
Lots of celebs age like absolute shit because they have a bit too
much money and opportunity - that means easy access to the party lifestyle and too much pressure to look good. Don't forget that plastic surgery can often do much more harm than good, for every celeb who has used it successfully there's probably one who's had something botched.
There are plenty of regular women who look great and it'd be nice to see them instead, but it's not really convenient or appropriate to post random people on here. I like to look at skincareaddiction posts for examples though.

It's a pretty common sentiment that women's looks peak in their 20's while men age like ~fine wine~. The purpose of this thread is to dispel that myth for both genders. If you still don't understand, you're more than welcome to make a new thread devoted to posting ugly old men

There is a myth that women age poorly while men age “like wine” - hence the name of the thread. People are posting male celebrities that aren’t aging well to prove the myth wrong. That’s the entire purpose
of this thread.

Haha what? That's not how age works. It looks like he was settling down with kids when she was born, not graduating highschool. He does not look like he's in his fifties and she does not look like she's in her forties. It looks like a seventy year old with a thirty year old.

I'm still not understanding why you're amazed that a guy who wasnt aging well to begin with and is nearly 20 years older than his wife…looks older than her. She's always going to look fantastic compared to him.

in my unscientific opinion, babyfaced men are less likely to age well, not more. a lot of the examples in this thread had boyish handsomeness mostly based on facial features, but because their bone structure was just average, their facial features just get lost when they get old and fat. the men who age well tend to be the ones that have strong, masculine bone structure that remains apparent even when they get wrinkly and bloated. if your attractiveness hinges on looking youthful it has a definite expiration date, but if it's more about features that you get to keep as you age, like bone structure, proportion, and symmetry, you have a better chance of aging well.

Everytime I see her and her son I still can't believe…
The phrase that men age like wine isn't regarding their physical appearances, at least not exclusively. It regards their status socially. As men age, so the saying generalizes, the fruits of their labors become more apparent and they are more likely to have a wider array of resources, both financial and social, at their disposal from their experience. Can the same be said for women? Yes, women become more valuable in both regards as they get older, too, if they are professionals and focus on those gains.
But the primary aspect by which women are judged initially is their appearance. Most people age like shit, but since outward appearance is the first impression society gets from women, the ravages of aging impact their social standing more than that of men who tend to be judged by a completely different metric. Men age like wine specifically because people stop caring about how men look just around the time their looks begin to decline.

Kek what? No.
People use it to mean that men get better looking with age while women get worse. That’s it. That’s the extent of it. Just google “men age like wine” and look at the pictures. They’re not talking about all the shit you did. They’re talking about looks. Full stop.

Zooey Deschanel is 38
Just because you like someone's personality it doesn't mean they are less ugly anon.
I love the hitb guys but, come on, the only one that doesn't look like a trainwreck is Jay, and he's just average.

She looks so much better now than she did when she was younger imo. Styling can do so god damn much
WHAT. This is straight up witchcraft.
As much as I love the thread though, I hate how most anons post middle-aged women who just look younger. In my opinion, aging beautifully is letting the signs of age show but embracing them. Don't get me wrong but I was kind of hoping to see foxy grey-haired ladies who still have it. Monique Parent from youtube is one of my favourites, she's definitely had some work done but doesn't try to hide her age. Her personality is so refreshing as well!

Mike only retains some modicum of cuteness because he still has good facial features, but at this point he's too bloated for it to help much. He still looked okay when he was at the beginning stages of fatness but at this point he's likely a lost cause (though he is funny and has an interesting personality and all that which goes a long way, so I get why you like him). >>266071
Me too, I think it's beautiful.

yeah i'm dating one. it's not like she looks bad, but a lot of 38 year olds don't have visible wrinkles like this, and her face looks way harsher than it used to. i know it's nitpicky but i just don't think she's aging BETTER than average, especially with the resources she has. But maybe my so just has exceptionally good skin i guess.

I like the look of Jo Ani. Very mature but still ethereal.

Wasn't he a major piece of shit back in those days though? Like just tormented Molly Ringwald on set? He had it comin.
Good for Molly though. She aged better than all the sexual assault/racist jokes in John Hughes movies did.
My problem with men is that I see aging as a natural thing and I don't expect my future hypothetical bf/partner to remain young forever, I don't even care about balding and a bit of pudginess but it's men that have these unrealistic expectations of women remaining flawless and youthful and even then that's not enough.
Incels and bots can say whatever they want, I see much more irl examples of a guy or a family man throwing away years of relationship or marriage for a young bimbo.
Oh I know men generally care much more about looks, but what can I say, I'm that shallow lol.
It's not like I have sky high standards for looks though, having a healthy body fat % and a full head of hair is enough for me. Hardly 2/10 pointy elbows level
I put effort into my appearance and body, so I would expect the same from my partner. I wouldn't be with someone that didn't look after their body. Which is why the hairline thing bothers me, because it's out of their control, but it genuinely matters a lot to me in terms of sexual attraction. Maybe that'll change as I grow older though.

probably one of my favorite actors of all time, but kurt russell did not age as well as i wish he did. he's better than some of the actors mentioned but he looks like a hot mess when he doesn't have facial hair

Lol, as if all these Hollywood men didn't have surgery as well.
This "women age worse" meme is entirely cultural. Women actually age much, much better than men and are in general more neotenic (childlike) in their features. You may have noticed how a lot of trans women end up looking older after switching from male to female attire. A 20 year old man instantly makes a 45 year old woman. This is because male features do
look older and it stands out immediately. We just don't cut women as much slack.
this is the biggest shame of them all. he was so damn fucking hot in The Secretary. I mean he still might be if he wasnt fat. >>265024
tbh I dont understand how any man (or basically anyone
) in the US does still marry someone without a prenup. Alimony regulations are fucking insane (and rumored to be one of the reason Robin Williams committed suicide.. RIP)

Dita Von Teese was brought up in another thread and I just found out that she's 45! She looks fantastic, even without make up.
This thread is bad in so many ways. You all completely missed the point of the saying. The thing is that men only want young looking women, so old women can only look attractive if they look young. Women on the other hand have other standards of beauty, mainly the idea that they want successful men, which doesn't depend much on looks and biology in general. I find the woman preference theory dumb and sexist, I don't know, maybe it was true for older generations of women, but that's definitely not my standard and of my friends my age of what attractive men are. But men wanting young women is very much true, read this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoteny
1- aging well for women: looking like you didn't age
2- aging well for men: acquiring mature traits that actually make you more attractive, something that young men can't have
Like I said, it's not for me, I don't like old men. The theory goes that men prefer young women because more pregnancies and more successful pregnancies, which means more reproduction success. Woman's capacity of carrying out quality pregnancies decreases fast with age, but modern medicine mostly fixed that. Another theory says that neotenic women might trigger
men's paternal instinct of protection and nurture, pretty dumb IMO.
Notice how most cases of women who mature well in this thread is precisely about women who still have good skin &hair and tight body at old age. Also, posting men who had drug problems or bad life experiences overall, like this:>>264979>>264986>>264987>>264989
just goes to show that you're dumb.
What the fuck are you talking about? Why are you pretending this is an established scientific theory and not just some brainlet incel mantra to defend their own hebephilic tendencies and cope with their unfortunate genetics? We've all seen the images they create, use and disseminate. You think they care if an unattractive older woman has a history of drug abuse (which, let's face it, all celebrities have)?
I can't with these male-aligned posters. Go back to /r9k/.
Also forgot to talk about the other side of the coin: men of any age will prefer young women, while women of any age usually prefer men their age or a bit older.>>270933
I didn't say that the theory is true. Both theories that young women means higher reproductive success and that young women trigger
male paternal instinct sound dumb to me, or at least incomplete. But trying to deny the common knowledge that men prefer young women is just dumb. It is simply common knowledge, and it is backed up by many studies, now the theories behind it are something else, none of them convinced me.
As for the drug thing, it is only a side commentary. And I doubt that most hollywood women are drug addicts, like a good deal of the men are or were at some point in their careers. Brad Pitt is a legit case of a man who aged like milk due to bad genetics, but Axl Rose or Fraser are not (Fraser probably partially).
Nobody denies that men want young women. We're laughing at scrots who think they physically age better.
Old men with status have utility, but they aren't attractive. Having resources and thus being able to buy someone's willingness to tolerate your ugliness is not a "beauty standard", it's pragmaticism.
I don't even buy into the resources thing personally. What I'm saying is that the wine/milk aging thing is not about who ages less, but about who can still look attractive while aging. Like I said, men of any age will want young women, and if you're an old woman trying to look attractive, you're going to have to look like you're in your 20s. Women on the other hand tend to prefer men of their age or a bit older. The resource thing to me is complete bullshit, might have been true in the past, when women didn't have their independence, but to me at least I wouldn't want an old guy just because he's rich (probably because I have my own money), I never liked men much older than me, and as I said, at least in my circle of friends (my age) this seems to be the standard.
Most of the theories explaining both male and female preferences to me are bullshit, but trying to deny that these ARE the preferences is dumb, you're going against common sense and knowledge. Women "don't age well" because woemn can't look like they're in their 20s forever, men can't do it either, but women don't mind that, and would in fact prefer men their own age range. This is what I'm saying.
Women prefer older men (as potential life partners, not for purely sexual pursuits) because they will die sooner, leaving us more time to enjoy our lives as merry widows, in some cases with inheritance. It's a strategy.
If you male want a woman who loves you for you and actually enjoys spending time with you, you should go for someone of the same age or older.
Like I said, all theories trying to explain it to me are dumb. And women only prefer slightly older men, you all seem to be bothered too much about female preference. The thing is that men's preference seem to be absolute: they want women in their early 20s and that's it, but with women things seem to change, it changes with age and it also seems to change with social organization, and this is why I said that the female preference thing to me makes no sense. It might have been true in the past, but to me at least it's not true now. Women of older generations, or parts of the world where they still can't have their own money, will probably weight in male success, but I just don't, I have my own money, and as long as the guy isn't a dead beat, he's game to me. I woudn't mind dating a guy somewhat younger than me… so long as he isn't a dead beat.
That's not true for all women, not even most.
It's women that are not willing to take agency over their lives that look for older men, or ones that have daddy issues.
Damn, why did you all get worked up because I started talking about the preference in age difference thing? That wasn't my intention. I tend to see both men and women who go after much younger partner as disgusting, doesn't matter if it's Madonna or some pedo KV 40 YO neckbeard. I'm not trying to legitimize men who go after women 20 years younger than them, my whole point was to criticize the bad interpretation of the wine/milk meme in this thread so that you all can realize that the healthy way of preferring things, in an ideal world where men and women aren't drastically unequal in financial independence, is that both men and women prefer partners of their own age range. I was just criticizing these posts that show 50 or 60 YO Hollywood women with good skin, hair and curves as good examples of women who aged well, because that isn't aging well, that is just not aging, this is basically about trying to hide your age (and I personally don't intend to do that), and if you think that this is aging well then you're the one absorbing male standards. I don't buy into absolute biological preferences like "all men prefer young women because they are biologically hard wired for such", I recognize that at least in our society today this is what happens (and apparently many women seem to have this beauty standard too, at least for other women), but I don't think it will always be like this no matter what kind of society we live in.
