Youth and beauty are not an accomplishment. Jesus challenges us to not to focus on the beauty. “If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don’t fuss about what’s on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds.”

Yet some longtime fans were stuck on a detail that shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anyone: The actors have aged.
