Grease star looks unrecognisable 45 years on from hit movie that shot them to fame | The Sun

A GREASE star looked drastically different 45 years on from the release of the iconic movie.

The film became the highest-grossing movie musical to date, and it remained that way until 2017.

Grease star, "Doody" played by actor Barry Pearl now looks unrecognisable as he attended the 2023 Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival in May.

Barry, 73 has ditched his distinctive thick brown curls in favour of a full head of grey hair.

In addition to donning glasses, he looks much more built than he did in the classic movie.

He looks worlds away from his character, who was one of the three supporting members of "T-Birds" in the 1978 film version of Grease.
