True and it takes a lot of hard work, though you missed MM's comment about "trips to Mexico". Stallone was caught and charged with bringing human growth hormone into Australia.
Like I say it takes unreal amounts of dedication over a lifetime to achieve a physique like that, never mind to sustain it, but men well into or past middle age with that kind of a body are - and make no mistake about it - getting medical "help" to do so. TBH I have little enough issue with that and think if someone wants to do that, work away and it's better and safer if it's out in the open and under medical supervision. What I do have an issue with is some giving the impression that results like that are all gym and diet based, when clearly they're not.

Marty Morrissey isn't looking bad for his age I think you'll all agree?

I'm not sure what year that was from. This photo I've attached was from 2017, and apart from the hair dye and transplant, if you look closely you'll see he doesn't look much different from any man at 70/71 years of age. He looks like a hideous version of Elvis actually!

Hollywood actors aren’t an ideal comparison because they are cosseted, keep fit, have the means to keep in shape (well, we all do, but it’s easier with them with personal trainers, nutritionists, yoga experts, etc) but if I had to pick a few -

Brad Pitt - superb at 55.
George Clooney - has grown into his looks.
Sean Connery - ok, he’s nearly 90, but looked great in his 50s and 60s.
Matt Damon - very hard to believe he is nearly 49 years of age.
Leonardo DiCaprio - like Clooney, gets better looking with age. Was a pretty boy but has matured into a very handsome 44 year old. We are only a few short months apart in age.
Ryan Phillipe - another former pretty boy who has matured into a very good looking man. Also the same age as me.

My neighbour who lives in the apartment on the top floor - worked in a field related to mine, is in incredible shape for 73, cycles to Howth and Dalkey from the north west inner Dublin suburbs most weekends, is razor sharp in intellect and has excellent taste in film and music.

I’d be doing very well if I was like him in 29 years’ time.

I led troops into battle at 10 to 1 odds myself, during the Horse Fair Siege of 2012.

Are you saying he gets the hormones in Mexico?

Patrick Stewart (aka Captain Jean Luc Picard) is another man who aged very well.

Its not a hair transplant its a wig.


A hair transplant would not give the thickness Stallone has.


Also if it was a transplant his hair line would not change so often.

Richard Dawkins looked great for his age at 50:
