Stars really age…. Look up at the sky and you will notice that the real stars in the firmament do ages when their hydrogen atoms burn out in a billion of years. Similarly, our terrestrial film stars also age over the years but their legendary roles live in our memories for a long time.
For example, look at the famous child star in the 80s, Ricky Schroder. He was only 12 years old when he landed the 80s TV sitcom series, Silver Spoon. Many of his fans still remember him as the precocious smooth-talking little kid but with the gift of the gab of an adult. But today, he’s all grown up. In a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, he jocularly quipped ‘ I joked with my kids, you know, dad wasn’t as big as Justin Bieber, but dad was pretty big when he was 15‘.
