Essentially, people who know how old he is (28), and/or have read articles about him looking too old go into the film with something called confirmation bias. They "expect" him to look too old, so he does.

While that might be true in some cases, the criticism of his age began when the trailer dropped—and quite a lot of it from people who didn't know his age and hadn't read articles but simply watched the trailer. That's not "confirmation bias"; that's people reacting to what they see.

Of course, Platt then made an ill-judged (and subsequently deleted) Tweet about "randos being jerks about age," which had the inevitable effect of increasing critical coverage and making it all about his age. Certainly an unfortunate decision.
