Which is people really need to get over the whole 'youthful looks are good; looking older is bad' thing.
NO, really, they do. It's no wonder half of Hollywood is nuts, when their public expects them to look like they did when they were twenty when, in many cases, they're at least twice that age now. And the rest know they're headed that way and they better start making plans right now for when it happens to them if they want a job at that point.
And to all you folks out there going 'Bret is cute, Richie is ugly'?
Fuck off. Richie looks damn fine for someone who is almost fifty and has not done something like trying to stretch his face back to his ears to keep looking like he did in his 20's. And if he'd quit drinking, the puffy face shit would go away. The man looks fine IMHO, in more than one way. Back off. Go stretch your own fucking face (and pay the consequences later) if you're THAT stuck on looks.
...okay. So I guess I'm in a foul mood this morning. :P
