So it really is not that much of a difference between the 63 years old actor and the 57 years old character. So it is true that some people may look older than their age.

ROTS took place in 19 BBY, meaning that Obi was 38 years old.
When ROTS was filmed, Ewan McGregor was 34 years old at the time (2005 the movie and he was born in 1971).

Again, there is not much of a difference between the age of the actor and the age of the character.
Also remeber there wasnt a culture of cosmetic surgery in english film like now, Sir Guinness looked like a 63 year old actor did in those days.

Besides, wasn't Alec Guiness in his 50s during this movie?
19 years BBY not 18... how can you quote a source and post after multiple people who have posted the correct info and still get it wrong?

Your first mistake is trying to find continuity and logic between the prequels and the original. It's an exercise in futility.
