But that was 37-33 years ago, still makes him 83 today.

He looked 83 in the films 37-33 years ago though. A lot of people are surprised to learn how young he was when he played the role.

Watch them again. He does not look 83. He looks like a 50 year old in bad old man makeup in part 1 for 10 minutes, then he looks 45 for the rest of the movie. In part 2 they have him literally peel off his bad old man makeup and just say “Well, I got a futuristic facelift” and he looks 50 for the rest of the trilogy.

People just remember the older version of him, which wasn't helped by him keeping the white hair even after his face lift in the second film.

he looks incredible for 83. like not just saying that but his build looks more sturdy and athletic than that of a senior. i’m not sure why, but when famous actors retreat from public view for a couple decades i expect them to come back look aged and haggard, not refreshed and rejuvenated compared to other still working actors their age.
