No one on Earth, young or old, can deny having heard of the famous love story involving the meek Australian transfer student Sandy Olsson and the charming Danny Zuko. Nearly 43 years after capturing the hearts of millions of people and becoming the highest-grossing musical at the time, Grease is still a hit today.
Unbelievably, what Danny and Sandy shared was something that we all yearned to have. They had such a profound influence on the youth of the day that many of them mimicked the dance moves from the film. The time period that helped mold American society included the singing and dancing from Grease as well as the mooning mishap, the auto races, and the prom.
Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta became great stars that everyone spoke about thanks to this cultural phenomenon that persisted in popularity for years after its premiere. Newton-John’s “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” a single, received an Oscar nomination for best original song.
But Grease helped other people become famous than just these two.
Most of you are familiar with Stockard Channing’s portrayal as the rebellious Rizzo.
Channing was 34 when she earned the part, and she is currently 79.
She once made an appearance on Lorraine Kelly’s daytime chat program to promote her brand-new West End production of Apologia, and viewers couldn’t believe how much she had aged and altered since then.
Among the others, Channing discussed Grease and noted how amazing it is that, after all these years, people are still infatuated with it.
“I truly don’t want to accept it! I don’t want to consider that figure! I’m the oldest teenager still alive in the world! When asked about the popularity of the musical, she stated, “Coming out of the theater with people thrusting selfies in your face is a little intimidating.
Everyone had to comment on Channing’s appearance. She allegedly underwent a variety of plastic surgery treatments, according to many.
hat the heck had Rizzo done to her face?!?! (sic) was one of the remarks.
“Goodness, Stockard Channing doesn’t even recognize himself on Lorraine. That individuals believe they can’t simply age gracefully is such a shame.
I’m sorry. On @ITVLorraine, Stockard Channing appears to be a little frightening.
How on earth did Stockard Channing damage her face? She seldom speaks at all.
More individuals joined in discussing Channing’s appearance on the talk program and plastic surgery in general after the Mirror printed an article about it.
“It is such a shame that (mostly) women feel they must continually undergo different treatments in order to look youthful. Without all the fillers and pushing around, I bet she would have aged beautifully. She is a beautiful woman.
I don’t see why these celebs care; shouldn’t they just accept aging? I see women in their seventies and eighties who look wonderful with wrinkles and healthy skin.
Is it surprising that those with more money than sense fail miserably in their attempts to maintain a style from forty years ago? Consequently, they genuinely have a scary appearance. There is no shame in appearing 73, and if more actors and actresses refused to conform to pressures to look younger, perhaps things might improve.
