There's a girl (I keep forgetting her name, but I think it might be Nadine)—when I first saw her, I thought "She looks as if she's older than she looks".
Does that make any sense? After all, if she looks as if she's older than she looks, shouldn't that mean that she looks her age?
At any rate, it made sense to me at the time. Something like "She looks young. But something about her says that she's older than the rest of her looks."
