Quote Shicky: You couldn't pay me to believe Phyllis was 20 in 1994. Get me more proof than wikipedia and soap central (which has been proven to be wrong with character profiles before). Just embrace the fact that your girl is upwards of 7-10 years older than Nick. It seems Phyllis fans have more of a problem with it than her haters. So she's older than Nick and Sharon, we already knew that, does it really matter?
I'd be interested in seeing any proof you'd like to present that suggests she wasn't about 20 in 1994. I've got no problem with her being older than Nick it's the veiled insults towards the actress suggesting that she "LOOKS" old enough to be Nick's mother that I have a problem with.
I don't have to, I'm not trying to prove a point to soap fans all over. It is phyllis and phick fans that scramble every few months to prove that she isn't THAT much older than Nick, when everyone else knows she is. Just the actors ages alone in one thing, but Phyllis was not a 20 year old in 1994. Pulling that "fact" out makes the arguement more laughable in her haters eyes. No one outside of hardcore Phyllis fans believe she was 20 back then.
Oh and by the way, I watched the show from 1991 onward, and she was never identified as a 20 year old. We were left to assume, and given the actresses appearance, I always assumed late 20's early 30's back in the nineties.
And the fact that JM looks way younger than he is doesn't help the bashing against her age appearance. Sorry, but he does look younger than her and it is obvious. To clarify, I'm not saying that she looks bad or old or anything like that, but his boyish look doesn't help that cause unfortunately.
