Transformation: how 10 of the most famous cinema pairs have aged
We offer to find out how couples from famous love dramas look like, having lived together until old age (which often implied the plot of the film for the future). To do this, take pictures of the actors who played the cult lovers, made 10 and 20 years after the shooting.
Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke
Heroes: Elizabeth and John.
During the filming of the erotic drama “9 ½ weeks,” beauty Kim Baysinger was 32 years old, and her passionate partner Mickey Rourke was 33. The actors who were in their prime, were unanimously recognized as sex symbols of the 1980s. Despite the fact that in the next decade, Kim's career declined, and by the end of the 1990s she began to appear less frequently on the red carpet, the actress managed to preserve her beauty and form.But Mickey started all serious: he began to take part in dubious projects and fights without rules. It is the wrestling championships, if you believe the words of the actor, caused irreparable harm to his appearance. In 2012, Rourke even made a series of plastic surgeries, but he never managed to regain his former attractiveness.
Julia Roberts and Richard Gere
Heroes: Vivien and Edward Lewis.
The leading actors in one of the most famous love film stories of the 1990s at the time of filming were in different age categories. Roberts was only 23 years old, but Giru - already 42! In principle, the plot implied a difference in age: the wealthy Edward was supposed to look older than the inexperienced Vivien. But, of course, no one could, looking at Gere in this role, say that he is older than his partner by almost 20 years. Apparently, the whole thing is in the actor's natural charisma, thanks to which he looked great both 10 and 20 years after the shooting. Julia, by the way, also managed to survive well - she always looked younger than her years and with age did not lose either perfect figure proprets or youthfully mischievous facial expressions, for which we all once loved her heroine Vivien.
Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino
Heroes: Frankie and Johnny.
In a complicated love story about two people who found each other in spite of everything, the main roles were played by 23-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino, who at that time already exceeded 50 years. In the plot of the film, the characters also had a decent age difference: the story tells about a 36-year-old Frankie, who despaired of finding love when she suddenly met 46-year-old Johnny - a man with a difficult fate who wants to find a soul mate. On the screen, the couple looked very harmonious. Years after working on the picture, the global age difference, of course, manifested itself, and it became obvious that Michel had a decent handicap. However, something that Al Pacino didn’t take away - the actor, even noticeably aging, always looked colorful. Pfeiffer, having crossed the line for 40 years, began to pass noticeably and be criticized for being too enthusiastic about plastic surgery.
Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas
Heroes: Catherine Tramell and Nick Curran.
Shooting in the main erotic thriller of the 1990s, the icon of the decade Sharon Stone was no longer young; she was 34 years old. Michael Douglas, who played the detective seduced by her,was at a still more mature age - at that time he was already 48! However, this did not prevent the actor from retaining the status of a sex symbol for many years. Perhaps the marriage of the young beauty Catherine Zeta-Jones, who at the time of their wedding in 2000 was only 30 years old (Michael was 56), also played a role. Sharon, known for his stormy personal life, apparently, also could not afford to relax. And at 40, and 50 actress looked equally sexy and attractive.
Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas
Heroes: Carolina and El Mariachi.
This film was a breakthrough for both Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek. His career has reached a new level, and she took the first step towards conquering the American audience. Salme at the time was 29 years old, and Antonio 35. Of course, interest in the film and the couple fueled rumors about a possible novel. Meanwhile, it is known that the actors have always tied only friendly relations. But they looked together, which is to say, great - hot Spanish macho and Mexican beauty with naughty forms. With age, it became obvious that Salma was clearly more successful in the fight against age: although the actors are almost the same age, today she looks much younger than her former film lover.
Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel
Heroes: Max and Lisa.
Having created a romantic duet in the film, Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel could not refrain from relationships outside the shooting area. It was after the “Apartment” that their affair began, the marriage being the logical continuation of which. The actors got married in 1999. They had two children - daughters Deva and Leoni. For a long time, the couple was considered one of the most beautiful and strongest in Hollywood. However, in 2013, Monica and Vincent announced a break. If 10 years after the first joint shootings they were still a happy couple, everywhere appearing together, then after 20 we can no longer admire this tandem, but only evaluate the achievements of each individual. I must say that both Bellucci and Cassel look beautiful today: he gained charm with age, and she could not lose it.
Charlize Theron and Keanu Reeves
Heroes: Kevin Lomax and Mary Ann Lomax.
This role was a real breakthrough for the young actress Charlize Theron, who at that time was only 22 years old. 33-year-old Keanu Reeves could already be called a star - the film “On the crest of a wave” (1991) brought him worldwide fame. However, the Devil's Advocate film has certainly become a success for both.Of course, the couple tried to catch the voice-over - they looked very good in the frame. But in fact, there was no novel for Keanu and Charlize.
In the future, the personal life of both was not quite smooth. Teron was waiting for a series of unsuccessful relationships, and Reeves - the death of her beloved. In 2001, his girlfriend Jennifer Syme was killed in a car accident. This story left an imprint on the fate of the actor - he began to lead a reclusive life. Not surprisingly, today, Keanu looks older than his years, yes, apparently, and not too eager to be young. Charlize, although her personal life was also not developing in the best way, she never forgot about her main trump card — her appearance. Today, she is still as stunning as 20 years ago.
Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio
Heroes: Rose and Jack.
On the role of the lovers Rosa and Jack, whose impetuous romance unfolds against the background of the greatest tragedy of the 20th century, director James Cameron consciously looked for young and unknown actors to make their feelings seem as sincere to the viewer. Apparently, the bet on young talents worked - the whole world selflessly believed in the love of Jack and Rosa.Of course, after the success of "Titanic" and Kate Winslet, and Leonardo DiCaprio instantly became the stars of the first magnitude. At this point, Kate was 22 years old, and Leo - 23. Both looked young and fresh. With age, each of them ran into a problem that prevented them from maintaining the status of a sex symbol - overweight. Being predisposed to corpulence, both Kate and Leo over the next 20 years fought for harmony. I must say that while Winslet has achieved great success in this field. But DiCaprio is still ahead!
Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth
Heroes: Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big (John Preston).
The rating of the sexiest filmmakers simply cannot do without one “serial” tandem - the heroes of the cult “Sex and the City”, based on the novel Candace Bushnell. Who of the girls did not follow with bated breath the way the complicated relationship of lovers developed, and was not happy from the heart when at the end of the next season they once again reunited? The question is, of course, rhetorical!
At the time of filming, Sarah Jessica Parker, who played the role of Carrie, was 33 years old.The actor Chris Noth, who played Mr. Big, already turned 44. The serial characters had just the same age difference. Since Sarah, at that moment, when deafening glory fell on her, was no longer young, and the success of the series required a far-reaching continuation, she had nothing left to do but to throw all the resources into the war for youth. It must be said that the actress managed to keep up for the subsequent “advents” of Carrie quite well: when she was acting 10 years later in the full-length Sex and the Big City (2008), she looked no worse than 33.
Chris Noth also looked impressive at that time, without which Carrie’s fate would not have danced. But after 20 years, the actor has become more difficult to keep himself in the status of a sex symbol - today the 63-year-old “Mr. Big” looks more like a grandfather than a brilliant lady of the ladies. Parker, which deserves immense respect, is held out of all forces. Apparently, the prospect of filming the next “Sex and the City” does not allow her to relax.
Meg Ryan and Nicolas Cage
Heroes: Maggie Rice and Angel Seth.
In the incredibly piercing story of the love of an angel for an earthly woman, the main roles were played by 37-year-old Meg Ryan and 34-year-old Nicolas Cage. Both at that time were well known to the public.Meg had a popular melodrama “When Harry Met Sally” behind me, and Nicholas has already appeared in the cult tapes “The Rock” and “Without a Face”. After the "City of Angels" the career of actors was different. If Cage had a professional rise, then Meg appeared less and less on the screen since the beginning of the 2000s. Nevertheless, with age, the actress fought very successfully for a long time: at age 47, she could hardly have been given 37. However, the years still took their toll - today, Ryan, 56, rarely appearing in public, often looks even older than her own. Cage, who has held the title of a sex symbol for a long time, has been very successful, and I must say, I have also passed it recently. And in his case, the case, apparently not in professional failures, but in financial difficulties - in recent years, if you believe the tabloids, the actor is mired in debt and litigation. And the blame for everything - numerous marriages and addiction to an excessively luxurious lifestyle.
