These 12 Celebs Are Much Older Than You Thought

It hardly seems fair that some celebrities never seem to age. There are 40-year-old men and women playing mid-20 and 30-year-old characters and we are none-the-wiser.

Perhaps these actors and actresses only appear to have a timeless quality because we allow them into our living rooms and travel to theaters to watch them on the big screen.

Perhaps they appear younger than their age because they have entire teams of makeup artists and fitness instructors who keep them looking youthful and vibrant.

Whatever the case might be, these actors and actresses look far younger than their actual age.

Is #9 really 46-years-old? WOW!!!



Jim Parsons

Jim Parsons was born on March 24, 1973. That means this famous star of The Big Bang Theory is now 43-years-old.

It’s hard to imagine Parsons is this old given his character’s childish demeanor. It is not everyday that you see a 43-year-old walking around in The Green Lantern and The Flash outfits or geeking out over Star Trek figurines. Sheldon Cooper definitely doesn’t look like he should be in the middle of a mid-life crisis.


Julianne Moore

Julianne Moore was born on December 3, 1960, making her 55-years-old. Yes, you read that correctly!

Remember how stunning she looked in Boogie Nights? This mom is technically old enough to be a grandmother but still hot enough to be a woman in her mid 20s. The years have been incredibly kind to Moore and she still has a sex appeal that is undeniable.


Gwen Stefani

She’s not “Just a Girl” she’s now a woman and she’s still as hot as ever. She was born on October 3, 1969, making her 46-years-old.

It’s hard to believe that No Doubt was performing with their young singer in the mid-nineties. Their music remains as timeless today as the day it was released.

She may have started as a punk brat but she has blossomed into a very sexy powerhouse with undeniable talent.


Jennifer Aniston

Can you believe Jennifer Aniston is now 47-years-old? She was born on February 11, 1969.

I don’t know how it happened but Aniston has actually become more sexy since her days staring on NBC’s mega-hit Friends. It is difficult to tell how old she is when you see her in a movie or television show because she looks the same every time!

Aniston’s flawless skin, beautiful hair and amazing body are still impeccable, a feat for people of all ages.


Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock was born on July 26, 1964. She might be 51-years-old now but you would never guess that the Speed and Miss Congeniality actress has been around for more than five decades.

Bullock is now a mom, actress, and powerhouse of the Hollywood industry. How she managed to still look amazing every day with her busy schedule is beyond us to understand.

6. ROB LOWE – 52

Rob Lowe

Rob Lowe was born on March 17, 1964. He’s 52-years-old and aging gracefully.

From his role as Sam Seaborn on The West Wing to his hilarious turn on Parks and Recreation, this actor doesn’t just have youthful looks, he also carries himself with a fun loving youthful attitude that keeps him looking young.

It’s hard to imagine this former party boy as he once was, especially as he spends time with his college-aged children.

We’ll have whatever he’s eating.

7. Gabrielle Union – 43

Gabrielle Union

There is no way Gabrielle Union is really 43-years-old. I refuse to believe it. Yet, she was in fact born on October 29, 1972.

We loved her in Bring It On and she is still turning heads to this very day.

Even as she ages she continues to take on various roles, many of them with sexy characters that we still fall in love with.

She is the perfect example that proves age is just a number.

8. Dylan McDermott – 54

Dylan McDermott

There must have been something in the water on October 26, 1961 because damn if Dylan McDermott isn’t still a sexy looking man.

This A-list actor has won a Golden Globe and was considered for an Emmy.

He has a hectic work schedule but he’s still aging at a slower rate than humanly possible.

We’ll have whatever he’s having.

Wait, Dylan McDermott is 52? He played a great role on The Practice as attorney Bobby Donnell, where he won a Golden Globe as well as consideration for an Emmy. They must be putting something in the water at craft services on the set of Hostage that defies age!

9. Lucy Liu – 47

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu was born on December 2, 1968 and we’re pretty sure she stopped aging around 1990. It’s hard to believe that this Charlie’s Angel is now 47-years-old.

We watch her weekly on the hit TV series Elementary and she definitely doesn’t show her age.

She’s not only sexy at 47, she’s also a smart actress who earned a degree from the University of Michigan.

10. Pharrell Williams – 43

Pharrell Williams

This music legend was born on April 5, 1973 and he has remained his youthful look and outlook on life with his brightly colored clothing and strange but fun hat selections.

It always amazes us when celebrities work as hard as Williams but don’t show signs of aging. In fact, they seem to look even better every time we see them.

He’s still banging out hits like “Happy” which topped the Billboard charts.

11. Tom Cruise – 53

Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise was born on July 3, 1962, making him 53-years-old.

Maybe it’s his trademark pearly white smile or the fact that he still has youthfull hair and energy, but something about Tom Cruise has kept him looking younger than his age.

He has definitely aged since his Risky Business days but this actor still looks younger than a lot of his same-aged counterparts in Hollywood.

12. Keanu Reeves – 51

Keanu Reeves

Maybe he stayed in the Matrix where he could manipulate his age or maybe he just has a really good food regiment that keeps him looking youthful. Whatever the case may be, Keanu Reeves doesn’t look like he was born on September 2, 1964.

He recently announced two new Matrix films and he’s appearing in Bill and Ted 3.

Maybe Keanu’s secret lies in his ability to keep on working and having fun with his career.

If you have the money to hire the right helpers and buy the right beauty products you can keep your youthful look for years to come. Although, we suspect that some of these actors and actresses were likely born with genes that have given them a genetic advantage over the average person.

Which famous person’s age surprises you the most?
