Ten Years Younger

I'm not going to make this a weekly post, because frankly Friday Boobies takes top priority, but I'm curious as to how old people perceive others to be. I always get asked what "year" I am in college and I always politely say, "Bee-yotch I graduated 2 years ago."

There is a show on TLC I believe called "Ten Years Younger" or something. I refer to the show as "Make 30-Year Old Women Cry By Pointing out Their Crow's Feet." Basically they take a woman out in the street and ask random people how hold they think she is. Usually they think she is 5-10 years older than she actually is based on appearance. It's clearly mean.

Anyway, I was watching a re-run of CSI and this actress played the role of a mother mourning the loss of her 20-something year old daughter:

This is Melinda Clarke and she also plays Marissa's mom on The O.C. She is pretty much the resident M.I.L.F. in TV land. However, whenever I catch a glimpse of her on TV I go, "Hmmm who is that new young actress? She can't possibly be over the age of 29." Until I realize who she is and how many ADULT chidren she is suposedly mothering on TV. In this case I think she looks much younger than she is.

So my long winded post leads to this question: Based upon this picture, how old is Melinda Clarke? Leave your guesses.

(No Googling or IMDB-ing!! Leave your honest response.)

Lets see.....
1.She's had minor Plastic surgery procedures.
2. Fucking gorgeous...
3. Picture is photoshopped
4. Her skin is bloated and not as tight so I'll rule out 20's and early 30's
5. 37-38.....

I'd say 38.

And I agree that the photo has been touched up a bit.

I'd say 36ish, but using context clues I think that wrong.

Well, her father played Mickey on Days from the '60's to a couple of years ago, so he's probably in his seventies or thereabouts. So unless he was a really young or really old father, I'd say she's 38-39.

She could be 33, she could be 43. Tough to say. I'd split it in the middle, agree with the folks above about airbrushing and plastic surgery and say 36.

For all my sun damage, I'm REALLY lucky to not look my age. But, in the last year, I've noticed the lines forming around my mouth...so it's coming. I moisturize like a lunatic now.

Melinda Clarke was born in April of 1969 accordinging to IMDB. That makes her 37 years old. Alejandra and O-Face: good job!

Hmmm, I've been watching nothing but old "CSI"s lately, and this woman has appeared on the show at least twice, playing "Lady Heather," some sort of madame of a dominatrix parlor. Has she played multiple roles on the show? Now I'm curious. Guess I have to snoop around on the Internet. At any rate, she looks pretty fabulous to my untrained eye.
