Watch: Hollywood’s Old Age Makeup vs. Actors’ Actual Aging

When Back to the Future mania was in full swing last year, I remember seeing a meme going around comparing how the movie thought actors like Michael J. Fox and Lea Thompson might look in 2015 and how they actually looked in 2015. Today, Sploid has pointed me to a video that basically does the same thing, but with a much larger sample size. It's pretty interesting to see how Hollywood make-up artists (or the directors who instruct them) often assume people will look far worse than they actually do when they hit a certain age.
