What 18 Movie Characters Would Look like If Actors’ Ages Matched That of Their Characters

It seems to be a trend that many actors are younger or older than the character they’re supposed to play. Many might not know that in the theater, there are some wiggle rooms where costume designers or makeup artists can transform a teenager into a young child or a young adult into an older adult.
In fact, if an actor is just right for a role, the director may be willing to overlook the age gap. As a result, you might be shocked to learn that some of your favorite actors are a decade younger or older than you believed them to be. They took over characters with ages drastically different from their own and show us how good they are at embodying their roles.
We used FaceApp to see how movie teenagers would look if they were played by actual teens.
