At THIRTY FIVE years old, person in question is Devi Sridhar (Edinborough uni global specialise ). I thought she was 28 maximum.

Well this is a bit strange!

BestIsWest Wed 24-Jun-20 13:35:33

Leave off the ‘for her age’ please. She’s 36 ffs.

Rainbow12e Wed 24-Jun-20 13:35:37

Why strange?
I follow her on Twitter and was genuinely shocked when she announced her age just now. Everyone seems to be looking younger and younger these days. Maybe it's my age.

Wow someone nobody knows looks slightly younger than their age...

ElizabethMainwaring Wed 24-Jun-20 13:35:41

Just looked her up. (Never heard of her).
Prepare yourself op... She is a actually thirty SIX!!!!
She is unremarkably attractive.
Very odd postconfused

She looks amazing full stop but 35 is hardly ancient! I know loads of 35 year olds that could pass for 28 and vice versa.

Yes Devi you look fantastic

Rainbow12e Wed 24-Jun-20 13:37:27

Don't know why she just said she was 35 then.
I thought everyone knew who she was. She has been a very influential source of information through covid.

I hope that Devi could spell Edinburgh.

She's a Professor and Chair of Global Public Health but her achievements in looking like she's roughly 7 years younger than she is are the thing you'd like to remark on?

YABU and your entire thread is unreasonable.

“Amazing for her age”?? She’s 35 not 85 FGS.

She’s Professor Sridhar and has been a professor since she was 30 and you’ve posted a thread about her looks?? I’d say being a professor at 30 is far more interesting, amazing and inspiring than how she looks. That’s what we should be discussing, not her looks.

Oh and it’s Edinburgh not edinborough by the way.

PinkyU Wed 24-Jun-20 13:38:50

YABmassivelyU to spell Edinburgh so incorrectly.

EarlGreyT Wed 24-Jun-20 13:40:04

Cross posted with @ElizabethMainwaring and @foamrolling who I completely agree with.

EmeraldShamrock Wed 24-Jun-20 13:40:18

I am sure she will be pleased to hear how you feel. 🙃

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Wed 24-Jun-20 13:40:53

YABU. 35 is not 'old', I would expect people to look good at that age. You should just be able to say people look good, and not add ageist statements about age to it.

Nixen Wed 24-Jun-20 13:41:00

YABU to reduce her to such a trivial thing as her appearance when she’s an incredibly intelligent and successful woman.

whatswithtodaytoday Wed 24-Jun-20 13:41:20

She's a fantastic, intelligent voice in amongst all the rubbish about the virus. Yes, she's very attractive, but that's hardly the most remarkable thing about her? And 35 isn't old. I looked young for my age in my 30s until I had a child.

echt Wed 24-Jun-20 13:41:45

OP, are you Devi Sridhar?

ShebaShimmyShake Wed 24-Jun-20 13:42:16

She looks like a beautiful woman in her 30s.

This hmm

Gluestick80 Wed 24-Jun-20 13:44:25

This is so random.

EatsShootsAndRuns Wed 24-Jun-20 13:45:31

Never heard of her. 35 is hardly ancient anyway! confused
