Eileen does not look 30-40. She looks like a Hollywood 55. Which she is.

And no way do Lauren Koslow or Kristian Alfonso look like they could be in their 30's. With the amount of plastic Lauren has in her face, she could be 70 for all I can tell.
in certain photos, Kristian does look ridiculously young. (not 20s young, but definitely not anywhere close to 49.) On average, I'd say that Kristian looks like she's in her early 40s, not about to turn 50 in a month & a half.
She looks 49 to me except in shots that are "artfully" lit. And there's nothing wrong with that.
we'll have to agree to disagree, since IMO there's no way Kristian looks like a typical 49 year old in:

(and then compare those to this, for example: https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/321624_187412148003237_623459041_n.jpg (credit: KAFC Facebook page) from 2006)
Haha, I love how you had photos of Kristian ready and waiting to prove your point!

I think this whole age thing is pretty ridiculous tbh. It honestly doesn't matter if the actress is 70+ if she looks younger than she is then it would be better to try to cast a lookalike who is younger because there's no guarantee that there's another 70+ youngish looking woman who also favors the actress.

Yeah, this kind of discussion leads people to do stuff like this...

Not a THING wrong with wrinkles or character! Like Gus McCrae says "The older the violin, the sweeter the music." As a 52 year old, I have to alternately be insulted and laugh at the perception that looking 50 or close to it is a fate worse than Daniel kisses.

Maybe the shadowing around her nose and mouth is bad lighting, but she was recently on Dallas for JR's funeral and looked horribly plastic. I'd fire Charlene Tilton's plastic surgeon too! The irony in all these actresses from the 70's and 80's going under the knife and having these procedures to look as young as they did 30+ years ago, is that most of the time it makes them look 10 times worse and they can't get cast in anything because their face looks too busted.

Sounds like Nick and Kristen will need body-doubles for some fight scenes

i didn't have them ready & waiting, exactly. i just went through her recently tweeted pics, and then went to the one place I knew would have BTS pics from before twitter existed.

Yeah it always puzzled me the way people will rag on soap stars for being full of plastic but then simultaneously treat the possibility of looking one's age like the kiss of ... hey well you said it huh ;)

People age, it's alright, and what's more it's inevitable so why tilt at windmills about it. Sad that Hollywood is so youth obsessed.
