    21 Wild Examples Of Celebs That Are The Same Age

    Betty White and Judy Garland were born the same year. MIND BLOWN.

    Let's jump right in: Recently I saw this viral tweet, which contained the mind-boggling fact that John Cena and Jason Earles are THE SAME AGE:

    If you want to have your mind blown: John Cena and Jackson from Hannah Montana are the exact same age

    I began to question my entire sense of reality.



    Which led me to start looking up the ages of other actors. Which led me to a whole BUNCH of troubling realizations about OTHER famous people who were also somehow born the same year. Here are the most troubling:


    1. Betty White and Judy Garland

    I knew Betty White was old,

    2. Harrison Ford, Joe Biden, and Jimi Hendrix

    Also Paul McCartney, Bob Ross, Muhammad Ali, Aretha Franklin, and Stephen Hawking. 1942 was a big year.

    3. The Dalai Lama and Elvis Presley

    They just seem to be from different times??

    4. Marilyn Monroe and Hugh Hefner

    Fidel Castro and Queen Elizabeth were also born in 1926.

    5. Princess Diana and Barack Obama

    This just doesn't feel right.

    6. Shirley Temple and Maya Angelou

    7. Bhad Bhabie and JoJo Siwa

    I thought that Bhad Bhabie was a LOT older than she is and that JoJo Siwa was a LOT younger than she is, so...overall, a lot of confusion.

    8. Post Malone and Ross Lynch and Laura Marano (aka Austin and Ally from Austin & Ally)

    I'm pretty sure Austin and Ally are still, like, 13.

    9. Kylie Jenner and Malala Yousafzai

    Maisie Williams was also born in 1997.

    10. Willem Dafoe and Kris Jenner

    A24, E!

    I don't know why this is so surprising to me.

    11. Mara Wilson (Matilda) and Wiz Khalifa

    I know Mara's not a kid anymore, but that's how I think of her!

    12. Amy Schumer and Beyoncé

    I'm not even sure who I thought was older, but this just seems wrong.

    13. Jake T. Austin and Halsey

    Obviously, these photos were not taken the same year, but the picture on the left is still how I see Jake T. Austin.

    14. Anthony Hopkins, Morgan Freeman, and Jane Fonda

    Jack Nicholson was also born in 1937.

    15. Bernie Sanders, Bob Dylan, and Martha Stewart

    Faye Dunaway and Neil Diamond were also born in 1941.

    16. Liam Hemsworth and The Maze Runner's Thomas Brodie-Sangster

    I refuse to believe that Thomas Brodie-Sangster is older than 18.

    17. Barbara Walters and Anne Frank were born the same year.

    Christopher Plummer, Jackie Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Grace Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn were also born in 1929.

    18. Snoop Dogg and Martin Freeman

    Winona Ryder, Tupac Shakur, Elon Musk, Selena Quintanilla, and Mark Wahlberg were also born in 1971.

    19. Marilyn Manson and Paul Rudd

    Paul Rudd does not age.

    20. Macaulay Culkin and Kim Kardashian West

    20th Century Fox, E!

    Both icons of different generations, yet somehow the same age.

    21. And finally, Molly Ringwald and Will Smith

    Guy Fieri was also born in 1968.

    G2G, crying about how time means nothing.
