You Won't Believe What These 31 British Actors Look Like Now

Whoa, these changes are crazy.

Which of these 31 British actors still look the same as when they won? The United Kingdom has been kind of an outsized source relative to its population for famous artistic celebrities in America for as long as America has HAD recognizable famous artistic celebrities. From comedic films, to stage dramas, to some of the best rock and roll music ever, some of the most beloved artists of the 20th century (and beyond) are from the UK. We've always loved British stars, and so it's no surprise we'd know so many of them as household names. And a lot of them have been famous for A LONG time -- did you know Maggie Smith won an Oscar in 1969 and an Emmy in 2016? Or that Julie Andrews has been nominated for three Oscars, but only won one for a kids' movie? Or that Christian Bale first caught the eye of moviegoing audiences at age 13? But what do some of the all-time British (and Scottish, and Irish, and Welsh) greats look like now? How have they changed? Which British stars have had their looks hold up and which haven't? Which ones look completely different and which ones look shockingly the same? Here are 31 classic UK stars, and you won't believe what they look like now.
