Celebrities are often immortalized up on the silver screen, most especially A-list movie stars and record-breaking music artists. However, they are not exempt from the ravages of time, and while many are fortunate enough to have seemingly drunk from the fountain of youth, most appear to have terribly aged while out from the limelight. Let’s take a look at 15 of the most popular celebrities of their times, how they looked then and now..
15 Brigitte Bardot
Very popular back in the 1950s and 1960s, Brigitte Ann-Marie Bardot quickly gained a reputation as a blonde bombshell and sex kitten from playing roles in racy European films. Living a liberated lifestyle, Brigitte started off her career as a ballerina, then moved on to modelling and later on, acting.
Being in the limelight and trapped in her image of perfection led to breakdowns, affairs, marriages ending in divorces, drugs and depression. At the age of 39, Brigitte retired from the limelight, and lived a quiet and peaceful life as an author and an animal rights activist. While the years were not easy on her, Brigitte is happier and more at peace, with her last marriage lasting over 20 years.
