A Gallery of Old Celebrities, Young Again

Published by at 11:00 am under Images,Movies

Looking at all the great, veteran actors that are still alive today, you sometimes forget about the long and storied careers they’ve had before now, and their early roles that made them stars.

Sure, they may be pudgy and gray these days, but that wasn’t always the case, and I thought I’d assemble this pretty cool gallery showing today’s old-timers in their youthful glory days.

Check out the pictures below, and if you have any of your own to add, send them over to me at paul@unrealitymag.com and I’ll add them if they’re worthwile.

    Is it just me or is Ian McKellan sporting a faux-hawk about 40 years before it was popular? Gay people are so ahead if the times fashion-wise

  • patrickchewing

    Love me some Sly. Still looks great.

  • Rob J

    Helen Mirren is still a ride, at least half the actors on this list are still hitting high points in the careers and Morgan Freeman has always been nothing short of god

    “Is it just me or is Ian McKellan sporting a faux-hawk about 40 years before it was popular? Gay people are so ahead if the times fashion-wise”

    Correct. Boy looks sharp. Also, why doesn’t Streep look that much younger, eventhough it clearly is a very old picture?

  • OTWarrior

    Robert Duvall was a lot more silver looking back then

  • Parker Jammstein

    Morgan Freeman was in Blacula? WHAT.

    Judi Dench kinda looks like a man in hers.

  • dan1

    is that Cher with Arnold?

  • pedro

    James Caan was the kind of guy to make this list too, and also Tom Hanks, i know my mom like him that much

  • Ellie

    I have a Betty White calender and January is a picture of her when she was first starting in TV with brown hair and absolutely no wrinkles.

    “…you sometimes forget about the long and storied careers they’ve had before now, and their early roles that made them stars.”

    How true! Nobody remembers obscure stuff like TAXI DRIVER or THE GODFATHER or EASY RIDER or THE GRADUATE.

    If only we had some way to preserve these ancient movies and maybe even watch them at home…
