I wrote that eight years ago. But yeah, she looks fifteen years older than she is. What happened?

I've read some rumors that when she was first cast in Spy Kids, she lied about her age... i.e., she was much older than she pretended to be. But then reality reared its ugly head eventually.

Lack of a makeup artist and a movie to get into shape for.

It's not that she's out of shape (and she does have two movies coming up), it's just that she... looks bizarrely old all of a sudden. Maybe she did a superhuman amount of tanning a few years ago.

Wow, you guys are very inconsiderate. We can't wear a pound of makeup 24/7.

This is not just makeup, or a lack thereof. She looks drastically different, and much, much older than she should. I don't think that plastic surgery is to blame, but if it is, it's the worst botch job I've seen in years.

I've honestly never seen any 31 year-old ladies look like that at 31, especially ones that looked the way she did at like 25. She could be 50 there, 55.

Why don't you guys do a little research before piling on the poor woman? It could be EDS. Like maybe her body doesn't make enough collagen.

It's 100% a makeup thing. This is her in a TV movie just earlier this year.

This still looks like a different face. I wouldn't recognize her at all.

So I just looked Theon an embarrassing amount of photos of her from throughout her career, and I think I know why she looks so different than what most of us think of her looking like. She's smiling. Robert Rodriguiz must tell her to maintain a neutral face, because she's not smiling in any of the Spy Kids or Machete photos, and in doing so, her cheeks aren't very accentuated. But when she smiles, boom. She looks different.

I don't think that's it.

This is her when she was 8...



... what she looks like now just seems like a natural progression. Maybe it was more than just keeping a neutral face most of the time, and involved even more makeup, but the way she was sexualized in Machete is not the way she typically looks.

Conversely, here's Jessica Alba (who played Alexa Vega's mom in the Spy Kids movies) from 2000, a year before Spy Kids 1 even came out.



Almost 20 years later, here's Jessica Alba today, in 2019.

Different people, different genes, different skin care routines, different makeup artists.

I think it's a far greater mystery when actors don't age... like Tom Cruise.

[snip]
wrong actress: Carla Gugino was her mom.



Alba was the kids' aunt.
