To be fair I have not been ravaged by time, and in keeping with the spirit of the thread I would say someone like Jackie Chan would be fun to see eternally young so we could enjoy a constant stream of viewing his death defying stunts.
I'm a huge fan of Jackie, but can I instead just bring back a young Buster Keaton, before he was contracted with MGM?

I would say Keanu is one of the only actors who have aged well. I mean being John Wick as an actor in his 50s is a role meant for an actor in their 30s.

We don't. Our version of the forum software is way outdated and our overlords don't seem interested in doing anything about it.

But nothing compared to his performance in that Cameron Crowe movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

There are no "likes" on this forum. We don't like anything.

I have to disagree with you on Signoret. I have always found her porcine or bovine in appearance, though a reasonably good actress.
