  • Sure, we all gotta go sometime... I'll take quality over quantity any day! Plus, with that kind of money I could leave my kids a much better legacy behind... So sure, take 10 years, why not?

  • No. Many famous movie stars end up depressed and either commit suicide or accidently overdoes on sleeping pills/ drugs anyway. I think if I said yes I would decrease my life expectancy anyway. I love my life and having all of the money in the world would not make me happy because money is not everything.

  • I'm going with no. It depends on what I would be famous for, and how it would impact my family. I certainly wouldn't want to be famous, just to be famous. However having a tight, toned body, wrinkle-free, and perfect hair without having to work for them, sounds pretty good. I bet women waste around 10 years trying to look hot, so maybe that time spent in the gym and salon would be better spent.....If I would live until 80, sure I'd take hot, and shave off 10 years.

  • If I could know what age I'd go, probably. My family has a history of living to about 100, but we tend to get severe Alzheimer's around 90-92. Literally 9 out of the last 10 people on my mom's side. I'm really scared about that, so if I KNEW for a fact it was going to happen to me too, sure I'd go for this deal! Be super gorgeous & skip my genetic predisposition where I'll be no good to myself & my family will hurt over me? YES PLEASE!!!
