Top row: Maggie Smith in 1990 at the Tony Awards, Maggie Smith in Hook, released in 1991. Second row: Maggie Smith in 1972 as the older and then younger Aunt Augusta in Travels with my Aunt.
English grammar insists that one should never start a sentence with because, but that is essentially what this post is, because I’m rather sick of seeing posts, be it here or on Twitter, wondering how Maggie looks younger as McGonagall than she did in Hook, or if she was ever young, or some other sort of crap along those lines of thought.
It’s called makeup!!! marvelous invention in general, especially for those us not blessed with naturally good looks, although admittedly used a tad too much by studios over the years (Downton Abbey included) in making Maggie appear older than she is. She was young (and insanely pretty), and she is not 120 today, but rather a still amazingly beautiful 78 year old with killer bone structure and ridiculously good hair.
