Old Age is Sexy….

October 12, 2009

Emma Thompson insists she’ll grow old gracefully. The British actress believes people get sexier as they get older.

Emma Thomspon

“Old is very sexy,” said Thompson, who will soon be seen onscreen as Nanny McPhee in the movie sequel Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. “It must be awful for women who are in denial and insist on looking 20 years younger.

“How are we going to produce beautiful older women if we don’t allow ourselves to be older. I think the trick is to age honestly and gracefully. Trying to constantly look younger must be exhausting.”

Thompson — who is married to actor Greg Wiserecently revealed she was planning to take a break from Hollywood as a birthday present to herself. (She turned 50 in April.)

“I’m taking a year off. That’s my birthday present to myself,” she said. “I’m not going to act, write or anything like that. I’ll be a mum, teach drama at my daughter’s school, I’ll cook meals and have fun, go out with my friends, I’ll go to movies and not think about working. I’ll see what bubbles up after that.

“As an actor and writer, sometimes I think you have to stop creating and let your brain relax. I think it hones the appetite. I think that’s important.”

Plastic surgery usually helps hold things up but, the Miss Plastic Hungary contest, it brought the favourite model low.

The hotly tipped Alexandra Horvath lost out on the crown after her fake breasts apparently caused her to topple off her high heels.

The enhanced 23-year-old had just passed the breast examination stage with flying colours when she tipped over and tore a ligament in her foot.

A new TV series investigating the issue of missing children featuring families of those has been shown on Sky Real Lives and is also repeated on Sky One. Changemyface helped with their investigations to produce age progressions of how the children would look now, some of them as adults.

Lorraine Kelly meets the families and friends of those who have gone missing and uses dramatic reconstructions to retrace their last known steps. She also talks to the police, psychologists and charities who are trying to find out why and where these children have gone. The series looks beyond the shocking statistics, revealing the human stories behind some of these cases. Mixing interviews with filmed reconstructions viewers will find out more about the children themselves, meet the parents who are still searching for them and examine the circumstances behind their disappearance. The child may be a suspected teenage runaway,
a younger boy or girl feared abducted, or a minor who has just
disappeared without a trace.

In the UK it is estimated that there are over 100,000 instances of children going missing every year – one every five minutes. Some of those children missing have disappeared on more than one occasion and thankfully the majority are found within 48 hours. There are those that have been missing for months or years and their families are desparate to know what has happened to them. Children account for around two thirds of those reported missing.

The series looks at missing children of all ages and their stories. Many of the cases were high profile and the programmes look deeper into the headlines to highlight what happens when a child goes missing. The shows also features reconstructions of the events leading up to the disappearance and information from witnesses about what they saw.

The series is shown on Sky Real Lives (channel 278 or in HD on channel 243) on Wednesdays between 12th Augusust and 10th September 2009. It is then repeated the following Sunday at 11pm. The series is also being shown on Wednesdays on Sky 1 (channel 106) at 9pm
Further information can be found in the August edition of the Sky Magazine and by visiting the Sky Real Lives website.

An image has been created of Anne Frank to show how she would look on her 80th birthday. I feel the image is not entirely up to date – she looks like an elderly woman from the 1950’s. However, to be fair, the image is sympathetically constructed…

anne frank

The ‘age progression’ image shows the diarist as she might have appeared today had she not died of typhus and starvation at the age of 15 in Bergen Belsen in March 1945, just a few weeks before the Nazi concentration camp was liberated by British troops.

Created for the Anne Frank Trust UK to mark her birthday on Friday – using the same techniques developed to artificially age missing people such as toddler Madeleine McCann – it is hoped the picture will help inspire Britain’s school children to think about the kind of lives they would like to lead, and to remember the loss of six million people in the Holocaust.

The Trust will launch a competition for children to write a letter to their 80-year-old selves, one of a number of projects being run across the world to mark the anniversary and challenge racist attitudes.

Anne’s half-sister Eva Schloss, a survivor of Auschwitz who played with her as a child in Amsterdam, saw the aged image for the first time on Thursday.

“I must say I was a bit shocked… I don’t really know why,” she said.

“It is a beautiful lady, very gentle, very kind-looking with this gentle smile.”

The aged image was produced by a Michigan firm called Phojoe which has worked with US police on dozens of missing persons cases.

The firm describes the technique as “part art, part science and a little intuition”, and bases its aged image on whatever photographs are available – which in Anne Franks’ case were of a carefree young girl.

Dr Schloss believes the loss of her mother and sister and Anne’s experiences in Auschwitz and then Bergen Belsen would have left their mark if she had lived, however.

“Personally I think she would have been more bitter and disappointed. I don’t see anything of this in the picture.”

Anne’s diary, which was first published in Dutch in 1947 and has since been translated into more than 60 different languages, details her time hiding from the Nazis with her Jewish family in Amsterdam.

CMF botox before and after

change my face imaging shows before and ‘after’ botox
There has been an increase in professional men aged 25-30 having Botox, reports The Harley Medical Group.

The cosmetic surgery provider said that it had seen the growth across its 26 clinics, with men accounting for 20% of all Botox patients and that Botox is now the second most popular non-surgical treatment with men at The Harley Medical Group.

Dr Nick Milojevic, Botox doctor at The Harley Medical Group, said, “Young men in the City have been spending a lot of time frowning over the last year and we’re seeing the fallout. Men coming into the clinics are telling us that they want to stay looking wrinkle-free despite their demanding lifestyles. Many of my younger patients opt for “baby Botox”, a lighter variation of the treatment that uses extremely low doses of the toxin, giving a subtle and natural effect.”

In 2008, The Harley Medical Group saw an overall increase of 6% year-on-year in Botox treatments.

maddie-before maddie-after

By Michael Seamark and Daily Mail Reporter

The hair is longer and the chubby toddler cheeks are gone. But that distinctive mark in her eye is still there – making this image unmistakeably of Madeleine McCann as she might look today, two years after she vanished.

Her parents Kate and Gerry revealed the picture to the world today in an emotional interview with U.S. chat show host Oprah Winfrey.

Two years on: Left, Madeleine McCann shortly before she disappeared. Right, a new computer-generated image issued by her parents Kate and Gerry shows what she may look like today, aged six

They believe that it is the most realistic image of how their daughter looks today.

The picture will be used on posters headed, ‘Don’t Give Up on Me’ in a fresh drive to find the missing toddler.

It was drawn up using photographs of Madeleine, computer assisted technology, and pictures of her parents around the same age. Gerry McCann’s features in particular can be seen in the image.

It was created by U.S. experts from Virginia’s National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children  –  which may account for the ‘Americanised’ hair band and frilly dress – but Madeleine’s parents are ‘happy’ with the result.

Enlarge madeleine

Two years on: Kate and Gerry McCann released this computer-generated image of what Madeleine may look like today

Age progression pictures are intended to give an idea of how a person may look several years after they disappeared.

It  is not an exact science, explained Auriole Prince, a British forensic and age progression artist who has helped police in missing person inquiries and trained at the FBI academy, but ‘an educated guess.’

She said: ‘It is a cross between art and science. You are trying to create an impression of what you think that person will look like today.

‘It’s a little like piecing together a puzzle. You start with a photograph of the missing person, use reference photographs of their parents and siblings and try to create an accurate, new image.’

Every face is obviously different, said Ms Prince, ‘but everyone has a unique likeness, that triangle of features, the eyes, the nose and the mouth. How the features sit in relation to one another.

‘People get older but they don’t look completely different.’

Emotional: Kate McCann breaks down as she talks about her missing daughter Madeleine on the Oprah Winfrey show

In the case of a child of Madeleine’s age, the changes are sometimes marked. ‘ You start to lose that baby look,’ said Ms Prince. ‘ Everything will be moved on a stage –  the bone structure the nose, the jaw line.

‘The best we can hope is to create familiarity.

‘It is not going to be 100 per cent accurate but that unique likeness remains and hopefully enables people to recognise her still, make a connection.’

Madeleine disappeared on May 3, 2007 while on holiday with her parents and twin siblings, Sean and Amelie, in the Portuguese holiday resort of Praia da Luz.

Oprah aired a trailer for her interview with the McCanns on her U.S. show this afternoon, revealing the picture.

The show will be aired on Monday, May 4 – a day after the McCanns quietly mark the tragic two-year anniversary.

Kate McCann broke down during the Oprah interview as she appealed for information about her missing daughter.

‘My heart broke for them,’ the chat show host wrote in a posting on Twitter earlier this week.

Meanwhile an expert has today claimed the youngster was probably abducted after walking out of her holiday apartment in search of her parents.

Enlarge Supporting each other: Kate and Gerry unveiled a computer generated image of how Madeleine might look if still alive, set for release later today

Criminologist Mark Williams-Thomas said it was unlikely an abductor entered apartment 5a at the Ocean Club in Praia Da Luz, Portugal.

The former detective said Madeleine was probably snatched by an opportunistic paedophile as she looked for her parents as they ate with friends at a nearby tapas bar.

His comments come as Kate and Gerry McCann launch a fresh appeal ahead of the second anniversary since the three-year-old’s disappearance, two years ago this Sunday.

The couple employed a forensic imaging artist from the United States’ National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children to create a photographic impression of how Madeleine would probably look today, aged five, nearly six.

The ‘age progression image’ will be unveiled on Oprah Winfrey’s U.S. chat show, mid-afternoon British time today.

The age progression will be used on posters for a fresh drive to find their daughter.

It is being shown on the Oprah Fridays Live show ahead of the U.S. broadcast of the star’s interview with the McCanns on Monday, extracts from which were released today.

Without evidence to the contrary, the McCanns, from Rothley in Leicestershire, still believe there is ‘a very real likelihood’ Madeleine is alive and well.

In the one-hour interview, which will be screened in the UK at 8pm on Diva TV on Tuesday, Winfrey asked them: ‘Do you let yourself go to the worst?’

Mrs McCann replied: ‘I think it’s natural. I know people mean well when they say don’t let yourself go there, but as a mum, inevitably there are times when I do. And they’re the times that I kind of dip down.’

The interviewer asked them about their marriage.

McCann

Meanwhile an criminologist has claimed today that the youngster was probably abducted after walking out of her holiday apartment in search of her parents

Mr McCann said: ‘Child abduction, I think, could destroy any family. There’s no doubt about it.

‘It’s one of the most devastating things. But we’ve been supported tremendously well and I think that’s helped us stay strong and stay together.

‘Obviously, we’re really united in our goal and our love of Madeleine and Sean and Amelie.’

Mrs McCann said she keeps Madeleine’s room ready for her return and said she goes in there about twice a day.

‘Do you talk to her?’ asked Oprah.

Mrs McCann replied: ‘Just [to] say hello, really. Just [to] tell her we’re still going to do everything we can to find her.’

Criminologist Mr Williams-Thomas said publicly-available evidence leads him to believe the three-year-old arranged her toys on her bed and left through the unlocked patio door of the holiday apartment.

He said the case bears striking similarities to the murder of Sarah Payne who was snatched from a West Sussex field nine years ago.

He said: ‘Is it unreasonable to presume that Madeleine woke up and then went in search of her parents at a restaurant within a holiday complex that she had grown familiar with over the course of her holiday?

‘Neatly tucking up her toys – as her parents had done to her – she slipped out of the apartment through an insecure patio door.

‘This seems all the more credible given what we know happened to eight-year-old Sarah Payne who was abducted in July 2000, even though she was only out of sight of her family for a matter of seconds.’

Mr Williams-Thomas made his comments after reviewing more than 10,000 documents amassed by Portuguese police during their investigation.

He said an abductor would not have arranged the toys on the bed as he would have wanted to escape as quickly as possible.

The expert said a paedophile may have also chosen to take one of the younger and more defenceless twins, Sean and Amelie, who were sleeping nearby.

Gerry McCann has revealed Madeleine asked her parents during the holiday why they had not come when the twins had been crying.

Mr Williams-Thomas said: ‘Based on the evidence provided from within the case files it is more likely that she was abducted after she had left the apartment. A number of factors suggest that this is the likely scenario.’

Last year, on the first anniversary, Gerry and Kate launched an appeal, urging anyone who spoke to police about the missing child to contact their own hotline.

The couple were buoyed by the news earlier this week that EU funding had been set aside for the Europe-wide alert system for missing children that they had campaigned for.

They hope for another boost in the coming days, in the form of a substantial response to their release of the image.

They then plan to spend Sunday in private. It is thought the Catholics will not visit their local chapel – although prayers will doubtless be said there for the family and their missing child.

Clarence Mitchell, spokesman for the McCanns, said: ‘It’s going to be a busy weekend. The detectives and hotline are prepared for the response to the age progression image.

‘For Sunday, Kate and Gerry are determined to keep it as private and non-public an event as possible. They may even try to spend it with relatives.’

In a message on their website, FindMadeleine.com, the McCanns said: ‘As the second anniversary of Madeleine’s abduction approaches, there is much still to be done.

‘We continue to remain focussed on our aim – to find Madeleine and bring her back home safely. As Madeleine’s parents we cannot and will not ever stop doing all we can to find her.

‘The search for Madeleine continues with the same strength and determination, and thankfully, there are many people who are continuing to help in a variety of ways.’

We found this news in Aesthetic Medicine Magazine highlighting the dangers of sunbathing as we start to see better weather. Last year changemyface created an shocking image of the singer Sandi Thom to show how she would look as she aged using sunbeds – and also without. The difference is quite astonishing.

Skin cancer rises among young women 08 Apr 2009 Skin cancer is now the most common form of cancer for women in their 20s. Cancer Research UK, which launched its SunSmart campaign today, released figures that show that a woman within this age range is diagnosed with malignant melanoma almost every day. It has also risen to become the third most common cancer among women in their 30s, after breast and cervical cancers. Cancer Research puts the blame for the rise on an increasing use of sunbeds and “binge tanning” on overseas holidays. However, as well as advising the public to avoid such excessive exposure to UV, the charity’s campaign will emphasise the benefits of regularly using high SPFs in skincare – to protect against both melanoma and skin ageing. “Excessive exposure to UV damages the DNA in skin cells which increases the risk of skin cancer and makes skin age faster,” said Caroline Cerny, Cancer Research UK’s SunSmart campaign manager.

changemyface shows Coleen Nolan what her 40-a-day habit is doing to her skin….

coleen-age-progression-comparison

Loose Women star Coleen Nolan has looked into the future and it has given her the shock of her life.

Auriole Prince, age progression artist shows the Mirror columnist how she may look in 10 and 20 years if she carries on smoking 40 cigarettes a day. The photos frightened Coleen so much that she has vowed to kick her habit.

The Dancing on Ice contestant gets the harrowing glimpse of her future during tonight’s The Truth About…Eternal Youth, a TV documentary about people’s obsession with looking young.

Coleen, 44, goes to London’s Harley Street and meets facial imaging artist Auriole Prince who reveals how wrinkles could spread across her face. Auriole shows her the image of how she could look in 10 years and told her: “I’ve increased the wrinkles around your eyes, especially as I hear you smoke 40 a day, and I’ve looked at your crow’s feet under the eyes. I’ve made your skin tone more grey as smoking effects the quality of the skin.”

Coleen replies: “Ok, I get the point, stop smoking.” She is then shown how she would look in 20 years’ time and stunned Coleen adds: “I think my husband might start divorce proceedings now.” After the programme, Coleen said she hoped she could do something about the images.

She said: “It was quite shocking. I know that smoking is one of the worst things that you can do for your skin. I am hoping to give up very soon.

“That is my plan and I am going out to buy nicotine patches because it is a promise I made to my daughter. Also I was amazed about the amount of sun damage my face had. I’m not a sunworshipper but I was shocked at the damage I had.
