oh my gosh, what happened to her face? she looks 50 years old now??? and she is only 42 years old. this is so sad


this is one of the saddest things ever. just saw an ad for her lifetime movie with markie post and i was so saddened by how old she looks. i mean, markie post who is 20 years older than her looks younger than her in this movie.

I think that has to do with two factors:

1.) She is a former drug-user, having had issues with it during the latter part of filming Sabrina. Former drug-users tend to look awful, even resembling 10 miles of bad road, despite starting out looking attractive.

2.) Relating to the above reason, she probably has not been taking care of herself, and people often age prematurely or look like crap when they don't do things like brush their teeth, take care of their skin, eat healthy, shower, brush their hair, etc. It's really sad too, she used to be so pretty and perky. Time has not been kind to her.

well makes sense, i've heard if you drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes you will look older than people who don't. so shocking, i didn't know she was a drug user. gosh, she always seemed so innocent like peaches and cream on sabrina, the teenage witch and clarissa explains it all. love how you said time has not been kind to her. so funny.

so did you notice what i noticed from that trailer of that lifetime movie? oh my gosh, i mean she actually looks older than markie post in this movie which is not right because markie is 20 years older than her. so markie looks 45 and melissa looks 50. it almost made me want to cry when i saw that one target commercial with her and joey lawrence a few years ago. you know the one i'm talking about? she looked so old in it that i was shocked. by the way joey sure looks young nowadays i saw him in a lifetime movie and he looked about 35 and this movie was made just a few years ago.

She experimented with drugs for a very short time, it's not as if she was a total crack-head or junkie for goodness sake.

If you want to hear about the year and a half she experimented, perhaps listen to what she has to say about it herself. She didn't enjoy it and cleaned up her act. I say good for her.

if it was just a year and a half then why would that make her look 8 years older than her age?

reply

It wouldn't, and she doesn't. You're just taking AmeriGirl's suggestion as gospel. It's how dumb rumors start.

I haven't seen the movie you're talking about but I think the other thing is that the image the public has of Melissa is permanently frozen as Sabrina. People look at her and expect her to have that youthful glow and if they haven't seen her age in the years between Sabrina and now, the change is going to be more pronounced. Again though, I don't think she looks bad at all from the pictures and interviews I've seen. If you can find a picture where she looks anything other than a mid-40s woman, and her skin, teeth and hair look like a ravaged drug user (as was suggested), I might reconsider. Until then this all seems petty, nasty and extremely shallow.

You mean this 43 year old woman?

She looks like a 43 year old woman. An attractive one. Her face is fine. Be nice!

reply

Also maybe she has not had tons of plastic surgery either. She looks fine.

reply

She looks fine, actually.

Normal aging for a 43 year old. I like the natural look myself. Hope she sticks with it. It might help her get acting roles.
So many actresses in that age range have that stretched out look from plastic surgery. It shows.

She's certainly doesn't look 50 like the OP claimed.

reply

CHILDREN AND MIDDLE AGE....PROBABLY TASTY TREATS TOO.

reply

OMG, you guys are crazy. I just looked up a picture of her from recently, and she looks exactly her age, not a day over 42: http://a.abcnews.com/images/GMA/abc_gma_hart_090529_ms.jpg

This type of reaction is why so many women in Hollywood butcher their faces with plastic surgery until they look like wax dummies. No matter how old they get, people expect them to keep looking half their age even though they look good, regardless.

reply

Well said, I agree 100%.

reply

yup , i just did image search , she looks fine

reply

You look like a truck had sex with a train

reply

Maybe all the drugs and alcohol you consume has ruined your eyes. Or she played an older woman in the lifetime movie.

reply

She is still gorgeous what are you talking about

reply

I agree. She's still beautiful.

This woman? You underestimate the power of professional makeup.
