The UK tabloid the Daily Mirror has a story up today about “real age” vs. “body age”, by which they mean, how many years a person has added on (or taken off) because of his or her lifestyle choices. As examples, the Mirror uses big boozers like Amy Winehouse (real age, 21; body age, 31) and Britney Spears (real age, 25; body age, 30) as cautionary examples of how excess can age a person and celebs like Madonna (real age, 48; body age, 35) as examples of what good-living can do. The story also includes a helpful quiz so readers can figure out how soon to slash their wrists or not.
Real age: 26
Body age: 16 … that probably is the same for brain age too, if it were tested.
