What about make up instead of CGI? How much can make up de-age an actor. Not as much as CGI of course, but how much can you push it with make up, over CGI effects?

How These 10 Actors Were De-Aged For Their Movies

What I liked about Kurt Russell's de-aging in GotG 2 is that if you recall Kurt Russell as a child and young adult actor in movies such as Escape from New York and Big Trouble in Little China, it's kind of surreal and nostalgic seeing him as a young man again.

I've never heard of de-aging an actor with make up. But only aging an actor with make up such as Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man.

Also, I think that young Kurt's hair in GotG 2 may have been inspired by his hair in The Thing, but without the beard.

And Jonathan Frid in the movie, House of Dark Shadows.



And he even got older in the movie.

Hmmm. Well, I don't quite understand why you insist that there has got to be some cases of de-aging an actor with makeup. Because when it comes to aging an actor, makeup can be used to add wrinkles, bags, sags, and fullness of face to the actor. However, when you're de-aging an actor, you're taking features and fullness of face off of an actor, therefore, that can't be accomplished by 'adding' features to the actor's face with makeup.

Also, you're free to do research to see if you can find any information about de-aging an actor with makeup, but from what I've researched, this has traditionally been done by using a younger actor to play the younger version of a character, or more recently with CGI, as demonstrated in the second half of this video:

The Art and Ethics of Digital De-Aging (Part 1 of 2)

Also, part 2 gets into the ethics and the realism of digital de-aging, but in my opinion, I don't see anything wrong with it because we're dealing with art and not real life. Plus, I preferred seeing a young Princess Leia at the end of Rogue One rather than to not have seen her because she didn't look 'real' enough. Same thing with digital resurrection. Also, I didn't even know that Gladiator had digitally resurrected Oliver Reed.

Oh okay, I'm not make up expert, but I thought they could fill in the wrinkles, and give them filling maybe, so they are not as noticeable.

Wow... You're a fast reader. But I guess like in real life in the way that women use makeup to appear younger and more beautiful, that only involves perhaps a few years. However, usually in movies, depiction of a younger character involves decades, and no makeup can do that for anyone.
