17 Then and Now Photos of Our Favorite Characters That Show Time Really Does Fly

To us, it may seem that celebrities don’t age a bit. But everyone pays the dues of time. However, it’s harder for us to see how different they are because we remember them as they were when they filmed their famous roles. And it may come as a surprise to us to see how much they’ve actually changed when we compare past and present pictures side by side.

That’s why Bright Side decided to take a stroll down memory lane and take a peek at how our once favorite characters look years later.
