Naturally, you're in your 20s! Not to mention that eating a diet low in saturated fats doesn't have to be a priority.

You've got your 40s to worry about plugging up your coronary arteries. And then there's Sutton Foster. Which brings us to Exhibit B: Sutton Foster's night at home with her dogs and McDonald's.

And that's especially true, when the filter distorts your face to the point that you're definitely a less attractive version of yourself.
