Anonymous said: Richard Dean Anderson is...?
Please tell me you’re asking about his Jack O’Neill days because I saw a recent photo of him and it was more disappointing than Brendan Frasier.
Hello, friend and fellow Stargate fan! Did you know that RDA is 64 years old, and has been basically retired from acting for nine years? That’s nine years during which he focused on building his house; being a single, full-time dad to his daughter, who is now a teenager; and traveled around the world to dozens of fan conventions. Also during that time, he had several surgeries he’d been putting off for years until he had the time off to do them, including multiple painful foot surgeries and surgery to correct a blocked heart valve, in addition to dealing with chronic back pain and knee pain from all the times he injured himself over the years doing stunts and just, you know, living life. A couple of times, he was forced into extended periods of recovery and inactivity, and required medications that caused weight gain. And did I mention that the man is 64 years old?
*sigh* You know what? I’m tired of having this discussion about anyone. Because A PERSON’S VALUE DOES NOT LIE IN THEIR APPEARANCE. Not Richard Dean Anderson’s, not Brendan Frasier’s, not Angelina Jolie’s, not yours, not mine, not anyone’s.
Look. It’s rude to comment on other people’s bodies, whether they’re famous, or your sister, or “they used to be hot!” All human beings age. RDA has just as much worth as a person now, as a fat old guy, as he did as a young fit guy—and he certainly has more wisdom. Please don’t reduce him, or anyone, to a mere body with an attractiveness expiration date by focusing on something as changeable as appearance.
My friend Bethany rarely goes off, but when she does, it’s excellent.
(It’s also usually about Richard Dean Anderson.)
I find this all amusing. All of the OP’s credit disappeared for me the moment they misspelled Brendan Fraser’s name. I knew nothing about the supposed disappointment of either of these men aging, but the OP clearly doesn’t actually care about these actors anyway, or a simple thing like their names would have been spelled correctly.
