    13 Times People "Benjamin Buttoned" Big Time And Somehow Aged In Reverse

    Benjamin Button, who?

    Remember that movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button wherein Brad Pitt played a man who was born as an elderly baby and then aged in reverse?

    Well, people on TikTok are sharing how they basically "Benjamin Buttoned" over time as they somehow look younger now than they did years ago.

    This new trend started when TikTok user @kactavish shared her transformation from when she was a tween to now:

    TikToker @em_uggghhh also joined in on the challenge:

    14 years old vs. 22 years old

    This TikToker shares a photo as a teen then as an adult with the caption "another user on here showed off that they Benjamin Buttoned pretty hard, so I want to show you mine"

    Soon, other TikTokers who also "aged backward" decided to share their transformation from over the years.
