No matter what Melanie does with her face to give the impression of youth, her knees tell a different story. i put it down to scary diet, because, IMO, her knees and legs look far older than 49/50. Melanie Griffith fights a losing battle with the signs of ageing Although the actress does not turn 50 until August, the area exposed by her white cut-off jeans could have belonged to a woman of far more advanced years. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/li...ews.html?in_article_id=453826&in_page_id=1773 Is this post mean-spirited? i'm placing it as i'm in shock, more than anything. i'm 2/3 years behind her in the age stakes, and you can bet i just ran to the mirror to see if i was in danger of imminent leg-skin collapse such as Melanie's. although i have my problem areas (many), i don't see the knee thing and hope not to for at least a couple of decades, because i say her skin in these pics makes it look as though she's in her 80s.
