Doesn't it hurt your heart a little bit to see these heart throbs lose their looks as they get old? I saw a recent photo of Susan Dey and I'm not sure I would have known it was her.

If we live long enough it happens to ALL of us, I know that. Some people grow old with more grace than others. You don't have much control over how it turns out (unless you resort to plastic surgery which just makes you look ridiculous as you get older). Even so, it just makes me wistful remembering how these heartthrobs used to look when they were in their prime.

Agreed. It's sad. We humans tend to look worse as we age. That's just the way it goes. That's just "nature." And while there are things we can do to keep our bodies in better shape, and fight the aging process there, the face just has its own will. It basically defies our attempts to stop the process. Weird stuff happens, like noses and ears seemingly get bigger, we lose our chins, or grow several of them, etc. etc.

I may be wrong about this, but I don't think Katharine Hepburn did any surgery, and if we include movie crushes, I had one on her as a kid too. The Hepburn from the 1930s, primarily. She definitely aged gracefully.

My own personal bias is that nothing ruins a person's look more than plastic surgery. I can't think of a single actor who had it done without it eventually making them look ten times worse than doing nothing at all.

I'm guessing in two or three decades the well-to-do will be able to slow, or even reverse the aging process via gene therapy. But the tech isn't there yet. Short of that, however, when it comes to the face, getting surgeons involved doesn't seem to work.

We humans are a tragic lot.
