Never fear, kids. The creature depicted here hails not from Middle Earth, but Tennessee. For it is none other than Justin Timberlake — or rather, a complete fantasy/nightmare of what JT might look like in the twilight of his life. Trendhunter Magazine has posted a gallery of various celebs all digitally aged to appear as if they have one leathery foot in the grave. The results are both horrifying and hilarious. Nicole Kidman looks like a witchy librarian. Avril Lavigne is a deadringer for a homicidal cashier at a truckstop Dairy Mart. Angelina Jolie is grey…but still hot. (Duh.) Timberlake is the hardest to recognize — ain’t no SexyBack happening inside that green t-shirt — but poor Jude Law looks pretty much the same as he does today. Minus a few follicles.
It’s all a bunch of mindless silliness, of course. But since Hollywood is so very hostile toward the perfectly natural process of aging, the gallery makes for a swell pastime on a Friday afternoon in the summer, when you’re counting down the hours till quittin’ time. (Not me, of course! Hi, various editors who are my bosses!)
Who’s your favorite? And who should Trendhunter add to future rounds of miraculously crusty ole celebs?
