While the rest of us are being vain and doing every single thing we can to look a little bit younger, Mandy Moore is just trying to look older — 33 years older, to be exact.
For the hit TV show This Is Us, Moore has to undergo a transformation from a 33-year-old woman to a 66-year-old woman in order to keep up with the show’s time traveling.
Here’s a photo of Moore as is.
And here she is on TV.
It’s no easy process taking her from younger to older. Luckily, she documented it on her Instagram.
There are prosthetics, molds and several other makeup tricks to get Moore into character.
“Look how incredible all of this is,” Moore marvels. “We haven’t even done any of the painting and stuff yet.”
Understandably, this all takes a hit on her skin. She makes sure to give herself a little TLC with treatments, masks and serums.
Next time you’re going through your anti-aging process and complaining about all of the moisturizing, pampering and primping, just be glad you’re not spending a ton of hours in a chair in order to look older. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it and that someone is Mandy Moore.
