Ageing: The fan account had posted the two photos side by side with the caption: ‘How the hell does this happen?’
One wrote: ‘He’s real. Not addicted to plastic surgery or air brushing,’ while another follower added: ‘It’ll happen to all of us. It’s called a reality of life.’
‘I think you have improved with age- you are very handsome- you just love making people laugh with these goofy faces!’, chimed another.
‘Say what you think about the photos but he looks happier on the right’ a fourth fan typed.
‘Still sexy though! Admittedly more so in the first picture but @rickygervais could never look bad’, another follower commented.

Ricky began his attempt at a singing career in 1983, during his final year as a student at University College London, Gervais and university friend Bill Macrae formed the new wave pop duo Seona Dancing.
They were signed by London Records, which released two of their singles; More to Lose and Bitter Heart. The songs failed to make the UK Singles Chart.
He achieved greater mainstream fame the following year with his BBC television mock documentary series, The Office in 2001.
Last month, Ricky revealed the third series of After Life will be the last of the hit Netflix sitcom.
The comedian delighted fans on Friday when he revealed he had penned a draft for the first episode of the new series.
Two series of the dark comedy have been released so far, both to widespread acclaim from critics and viewers.
But Ricky told The Mirror: ‘I’ve already made my mind up there won’t be a fourth series.
‘And you do put those things out there to make you remember as it’s tempting but… there’s an old saying that “to lead the orchestra, you’ve got to turn your back on the audience”.
‘That’s true. The audience think they want another one, but they’re not sure. So you’ve got to be careful.’
