A Picture Comparing What 30 Years Old Looked Like In The '80s Vs. 2024 Went Viral, So Here's What It Actually Looks Like On 70 Celebrities

There's a meme going around showing what 30-year-olds looked like in the 1980s vs. today.

It's essentially a picture of Jason Alexander and then a picture of Timothée Chalamet captioned "Being 30 in the 80s" vs. "Being 30 in 2024."
