MediaCorp celebrities and their “fountain of youth”
It’s easy to forget the age of some actors and actresses in MediaCorp. After all, it was only just yesterday when you watched Mo Jingjing aka Jeanette Aw on Holland V. How can it already be ten years? You look at yourself – you’ve grown a little taller (or shorter), maybe even with some wrinkles. These celebrities should have aged too, right?
It’s a little spooky how some famous people never seem to age. Ann Kok is 42 now, but she still looks every bit like the aspiring singer she was at 24. We’ve collated a list of 15 celebrities who seem to defy time:
1. Dawn Yeoh
