He used to be on magazine covers geared to a much different age set, but Luke Perry just had a milestone birthday. As a result, the former 90210 star is on the front of AARP's magazine, notes CNET. Perry turned 50 earlier this month, officially putting him in the group's demo. Not thrilled with this development? Those who used to tune in on Wednesday nights back in the 1990s. "You just made a whole generation of people who thought they were still young very depressed," reads one of the tweets collected at SFGate. (Perry is game for a 90210 reunion, while ET digs up some old footage of his heartthrob days.)
