Then And Now

What do famous people from the 1960s and 1970s look like now? Bo Derek, Sophia Loren, Cher, Susan Sarandon, Lynda Carter, and even Barbi Benton when they were young, all have their own articles featured here. These articles showcase the slow, relentless, and unforgiving progression of time where some classic beauties age incredibly well, while some succumb too too much plastic surgery, and some were gone too soon. Though this isn't limited to just women, of course, this includes any men who have been through a lot of change in their lives as well. People seem to be fascinated, though, for some reason, with how women who were either incredibly famous in their "prime" have aged, and what they did with their lives other than grace stage, screen, print, and song. These articles always show you what they looked like when they weren't famous yet, what they looked like when they were children, or even if it's being researched by someone unfamiliar with the era, this will show you, reliably, what famous women looked like in their younger days. Explore around and have fun, share, and please let us know (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) what you think about our "now and then" or "then and now" articles, so we can make them better every day. ✌️
