In case you want to crawl under the blanket and never surface because of a realisation that you just became a year older on New Year then Twitter has some soothing palm for you. The chain of thread was started by Twitter user Brandon McCarthy who shared a tweet of George Wendt in his 30’s looking no less than present 50’s.
"This is nonsense but did people in the past look older when they were younger?" he questioned.

Truth be told, people did age or appear to look older than they do now. Of course, with people like Tom Cruise, Cher, Mariah Carey, who never seem to age, we have to sort of comply that some people in the present does age considerably really slow.
Check out some of the thread here:
