You’ve probably heard of the 27 club, a tragic list of iconic people who passed away at that age, often due to the hedonistic and high-risk lifestyles they pursued.

Many of our most brilliant and talented people sadly follow a similar pattern, they shine incredibly bright before departing way too soon. Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin are high-profile examples of this, and there are sadly many more. But what if they were still with us? How would these icons, eternally preserved in youth, look today?

Sachs Media Group partnered with photo restoration and manipulation company Phojoe to create a gallery of these fallen legends gracefully aged, in a tribute to what could have been. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Internet laughed at this guy’s first attempt at Cristiano Ronaldo’s bust, so he tries the second timenda

Last March, the unveiling of Cristiano Ronaldo’s bust at the Madeira airport went viral. Unfortunately for the sculptor of the piece, Emanuel Santos, it happened for all the wrong reasons, as the internet mercilessly mocked the statue for its lack of likeness to the football superstar. After the massive public ridicule, the sculptor, unsurprisingly, felt defeated. “This is hard to talk about,” says Emanuel while barely holding back tears, “It was too sudden” he reflects on the experience. However, this year he got challenged by B/R Football to redeem himself and create a new bust.

The original sculpture for the airport was actually Santos’ first bust, yet the artist took up the challenge. Having your first attempt at something so brutally shut down can certainly break someone, but Emanuel reassures that it only made him stronger. “I want my son to understand that if he enjoys doing something very much, [he] doesn’t let himself be defeated with negative criticism. Sooner or later, if we believe in ourselves and are persistent, we can succeed in life” the sculptor remarks. With this mindset, Santos set out to create another sculpture in hopes to redeem himself. Check out the result below and tell us if you think he succeeded!

The 15 biggest differences between British and American weddings

With the fast-approaching nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle— maybe you’ve heard of them? — it is quite likely that the topic of weddings is at the forefront of your mind.

But, if you are an American, one thing you may not realize is that the wedding you’re envisioning for Harry and Meghan isn’t exactly the one that’s going to happen.

This isn’t only because their wedding will be fit for royalty. As it turns out, there are a bunch of interesting, and fundamental differences between weddings in America versus those across the pond.

So, while you wait for your invite to the wedding of the year check out these surprising differences between British and American weddings.

British wedding toasts are more like roasts

At an American wedding, you can generally expect the toasts and speeches to rely heavily on sap and sentimentality. But at British weddings, the toasts might seem, well, rather rude.

According to Vogue, the goal of wedding speeches in the UK is to fully mortify its recipient. So, if you’re giving a toast in the US, you can prepare your standard touchy-feely fare. If you’re giving one in England, just pretend like you’re getting ready for a roast.

If you’re a woman, you probably won’t give a toast

According to Cosmopolitan, British weddings traditionally only have three sets of speeches —one from the groom, one from the father of the bride, and one from the best man.

British wedding guests wear hats

One thing you can definitely be prepared to see at the upcoming royal wedding is some fancy headwear. According to PureWow, it is royal protocol for all royal women to wear hats on official occasions. (So, yes — Kate Middleton is going to be wearing one at the upcoming royal wedding.)

And if you were wondering, this isn’t just a royal thing — according to Vogue, almost every wedding outfit in the UK tends to be topped off (literally) with a fancy hat or fascinator.

British weddings are slightly less formal

Other than the hats, however, British weddings tend to have more casual dress codes than American weddings. So although an American wedding may encourage a black tie dress code, people will come to a wedding in the UK in slightly more relaxed attire.

British bridesmaids often wear white

Another big sartorial disparity between UK and American comes in the form of its color palette. In the US, it’s a big faux pas to show up to a wedding wearing white if you aren’t the bride, but for Brits, it’s customary for bridesmaids to wear all white.

Guests can be «ranked» at British weddings

According to BBC America, in the UK, it is perfectly acceptable to use a tier system for your guests.

To put it in American terms, you can think of it like a «first string» and a «second string» of guests — the first string will come to both the dinner and the reception, while the second string will only attend the reception. This is a good way to mitigate the cost of the wedding, and, frankly, an excellent way to minimize time spent with some more obligatory wedding invites.

British weddings are more likely to have a cash bar

Should you manage to swing an invite to Harry and Meghan’s wedding this spring, make sure to stick some pocket change in your clutch. According to BBC America, it’s more acceptable to have a cash bar in the UK than it is in the US (Though, if you’re invited to the more selective dinner portion of the wedding, you’ll most likely be served some wine free of charge.)

This helps make the cost of a wedding a little less terrifying, and (probably) also makes it so that guests at the wedding don’t get quite as sloshed.

Brits often pay for their bridesmaids’ dresses

There are few personal injuries greater than that of having to shell out a few hundred dollars for a bridesmaid dress you wouldn’t be caught dead in any context other than a wedding.

Fact # 3

Fact # 5

Age is nothing but a number for Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham are a pretty odd couple. They came public with their relationship in 2010 and continued to date until they got married in 2016. She is a model-actor, he is a Hollywood action hero. One could argue that this is a perfect match. Well, it is not so much.

Rosie’s’ father, Charles, is a chartered surveyor and a descendant of a line of baronets with royal connections. Her mother, Fiona, worked as a fitness instructor once. She may not belong to royalty, but she does come from some considerable pedigree.

https://www.facebook.com/Rosie.H.W/posts/1211339078897593:0

Jason, on the other hand, is from much humbler origins. His father is Barry Statham, a market stall trader, and his mother is Eileen, a lounge singer and dancer.

They have two decades between them
What really makes this couple stand out? Rosie is 28 and Jason is 48. Between them, there is a 20-year difference. How did this unlikely match happen? Well, here is their story.

In 2010, Jason invited Rosie to be his date to the Coachella Festival in California. This marked the beginning of their relationship. Jason was climbing the ranks, and she was fresh to Hollywood. He helped her a lot learning the ropes and finding her footing.

It only took a while before Rosie confessed that she was blown away by Jason and his affections for her. The couple became a major item and constantly followed by newsmongers. Together, they shared a common love for the arts and would often be caught in the company of equally famous friends.

The couple announced their wedding in 2016 with an enormous engagement ring reported to cost more than $300,000.

How they make it work
Although there are some sharp contrasts in their personalities, Jason and Rosie find a way to make it all work. Rosie has always been the more reserved of the two, and this reflects even in her fashion choices.

Публикация от Rosie HW (@rosiehw)

Jason, on the other hand, is more flamboyant. This, however, does not in any way get in the way of their relationship.

It may be hard getting over the fact that they have 20 years between them, but working in the same industry does help a lot. They share many professional acquaintances and business interests that are not dependent on age in the least. They welcomed their first child, Jack, on June 24th, 2017.

When asked about how they make their romance work, the answer was pretty simple.
Jason said: ‘We get drunk and float around the swimming pool’, to which Rosie added; ‘We’re best mates. He makes me laugh every day. I almost feel like I never had a proper boyfriend before.’

Matthew McConaughey’s 3 rules of life in a motivational oscars’ speech

This man needs no introduction. Matthew McConaughey, everybody! The “Alright, alright, alright” actor is a perfect example of greatness, consciousness, and love that a man can achieve. There must some rules or tips on becoming such a legendary person.

Matthew’s speech at the Oscars 2014
After Matthew heard his name as the winner of an Oscar for Best Actor in “Dallas Buyers Club” (2013), he went up on stage and with his characteristic smile started his speech. Although it was a little bit too long for the Academy Awards ceremony, nobody interrupted him mainly because Matthew shared true wisdom. And that wisdom was priceless indeed.

Matthew shared with us his secret and understanding, which is probably enough to make your life successful. No more expensive books and life coaches! Here are only three things that matter to Matthew each day in his life:

Someone to look up to, something to look forward to, and someone to chase.

Three essential things:
1. God is who Matthew looks up to.

When you got God, you got a friend. And that friend is you.

That is the simple truth we always forget. We forget that this friend can bless our lives with opportunities and support. We forget that this friend is someone we can rely on.

Family is who and what he looks forward to.
As tears began to well up his eyes, he explained that his closest people, his family, are the ones he wanted to make the proudest. Matthew thanked his beautiful wife, Camila Alves, and his three lovely children, Levi, Vida, Livingston, for their support and motivation.

Публикация от Camila Alves (@iamcamilaalves)

A hero is who Matthew wants to chase.
When the actor was only 15, he got asked who his hero was. After several days of thinking, Matthew came up with the idea of himself but in 10 years as a hero. After 10 years had passed, Matthew realized that he didn’t become the hero he wanted to be. The point is that the actor’s hero is always 10 years away. He accepts the fact that he cannot catch up with his hero because it keeps the actor with someone to keep on chasing.

Matthew McConaughey’s family
Camila Alves has indeed been a true inspiration for Matthew since the first time they met in 2006. For the actor it was definitely the love at first sight:

I went in my head, ‘This is not the kind of woman you call over across the room, McConaughey. Get your ass out of your chair and go get her.’ Which I did.

Today, their family is happy and strong, as they have three beautiful and healthy children. We hope it will last forever for Matthew.

These three aspects helped Matthew McConaughey make his life full and successful: His faith in God, his love for the family, and his own personal hero.

By now Michael J. Fox should be overcome by Parkinson’s, but he fights and helps others to survive

We know him by his famous character Marty McFly from Back To The Future and many other award-winning roles. But it’s not only acting that defines Michael J. Fox. He is also an activist and a writer, who keeps making difference in this world. And our favorite actor, definitely, did not plan all this before he got the news about the disease that shocked him and gave the motivation at the same time.

Fox started to experience Parkinson’s disease early symptoms in 1991 and got diagnosed with it a year later. This illness means that some of the brain cells die and cause trembling, slow movements, difficulty with talking and walking, dementia, and other problems. When this news hit Michael, he was 30 years old and he didn’t make it public for 7 years. He had some rough times overcoming it, getting operation, trying medications and getting used to the thought that this is something he has to live with.

It was really hard for him, but now he is an excellent example of a fighter for many others out there. In 2000, he founded The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

It seeks funds and investments to achieve a goal of finding a cure and improve the therapies for those who live with it now. What’s more, Michael wrote two amazing books Lucky Man and Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist. They became best-sellers and showed Michael’s inspiring positive attitude. He says:

I think the key to my optimism was accepting my situation [as a person with Parkinson’s]. When I saw it as just one of the things I was dealing with, then I could see the room around it.

Michael J. Fox is 56 now; he has his beloved wife, four kids that support him, and he cherishes every moment. And despite all the odds, he leads a healthy and active lifestyle.

I can’t run marathons anymore, but I hike and have a dog who walks me.

That’s why fans all over the world are fond of him. This man is not only fighting his disease and showing others how to live a better life with it. He also tries his best to find the cure and change the world. This is a real example of a strong and optimistic person.
