Younger Than... a Fogelberg Song

Saw "Evan Almighty" as the snows thundered down but was distracted by the seeming pretence of the wife of Noah, played by an actress named Lauren Graham, having been married for twenty years to the main character. It seemed as though they had cast a younger actress than the role called for.

I couldn't wait to get on to IMDB database to check her age. But now I have to admit defeat: born in 1967, she was 38 or 39 at the time of the filming in '06 and so she could've been married at 18 or 19. The picture at right is of Graham at the Evan Almighty premiere. I suppose this shows that I'm getting older since 39-year olds look 25. Or it shows the effects of makeup and good lighting.

Didn't they also live longer back then? So the aging process would be slower.

True, except this story was Noah repeated in modern day.

I always thought she was one of the most attractive actresses in Hollywood.
