"13 Reasons Why" ― the mega popular Netflix high school drama ― is getting a ton of critical buzz for its honest depiction of bullying, sexual assault and suicide.


There's also something a lot less serious people on Twitter are talking about: How most of the cast members on the show ― specifically 26-year-old Ross Butler ― are way too mature-looking to play high schoolers.


Butler, who plays high school jocks on both "13 Reasons Why" and the CW's "Riverdale," has prom-king good looks but let's be honest here: on what planet does a sophomore high schooler look like this? (And if you know, please send 15-year-old us there in a time machine.)

To illustrate what a typical high school student looks like, people are posting hilarious compare-and-contrast photos of themselves and the Asian American actor.


Case in point, this guy, who has a little less swagger than Butler, with all due respect:

Or this slightly more realistic high school jock:

Or this selfie taker:

Yeah, that's more like it.


In any case, props to Ross: If you're going to become a meme, it may as well be based on your ridiculously handsome good looks.
