  1. obvious really, they all dont want to look old. interestingly all of them have lots of hair, for men who are in their 70s. i think that is the average age but i may be wrong.the average age might be in the 80s. but they are not bald. do u think they wear wigs too? so the question is not why they dye their hair, but why they wear wigs and wigs of the same colour. haha.
