Because we all know that even though the timeline is changed, and maybe Xavier now didn't go visit her in 1985 (maybe he did it by himself (or with Beast) earlier), she was still born at the same time. That wouldn't change.
So, how old is this girl in 1985?
She looks younger than 15, 16, 17 or 18; and again, this is 2 years AFTER when the movie will take place!
By the way, for reference, Haley Ramm (pictured above) was only 13 in 2005 when this 1985 scene was filmed!!!!!
saying it was 1985 based on the "20 years ago" tag line, your assuming TLS was set in 2005, just cause it was made in 2005...
but, since the movies were never given an exact year, they have some wiggle room
I mean, even tho, the first movie had the "not too distant future" tag line it could've been set only a short time into the future (less then a year) the events of all 3 of the OT only took place over the course of a few months, maybe a year (definitely not 5 years)
they could easily say that that TLS was set in 2001, 2002... making that flashback 1981, 1982... a year or 2 before when Apocalypse is suppose to be set...
