Many people would love to be a part of the fame, fun, and riches that come with making it in showbiz. However, most people would not survive in Hollywood because of the pressure and demands that come with it. Keeping up with the competition is the most difficult thing to do since new talent keeps coming up. Older stars fizzle out really fast and new talent takes over. Famous celebrities are notorious for lying about their age since being old and tired does not sell. However, some celebrities look older than they actually are which is mind blowing. Everybody ages differently, but for these celebrities one of two things is true. Either they get to enjoy the spotlight for longer since they mature way before their age would suggest, or they find themselves prematurely tossed into the category of “old” and “washed up” celebs.
