Here’s the thing about celebrities — when they look like normal people, you think they look like death warmed over. So when I heard the news that Al Pacino joined John Travolta, Joe Pesci and Kelly Preston to co-star in the new Gotti biopic “Gotti: Three Generations” as Gambino crime family underboss Neil Dellacroce, I checked out a recent picture of him and was taken aback by how, well, crazy he looks. But then I realized he’s 71, and dude looks like a 71-year-old who has somehow gotten through the Hollywood machine without getting any plastic surgery, hiring a stylist or, apparently, buying a comb. So for your enjoyment, here are some recent pics of Al Pacino looking his age. Good for him (and us).
