Here Are 30 Celebrities Who Look Younger Than They Actually Are

Thomas Brodie-Sangster has entered the chat...

Celebrities are just like us...except for the whole millionaire (or billionaire) thing.


So before we get into these celebs who don't look their age (i.e. have aged with grace, are baby-faced, etc.), let me issue a disclaimer!


Because of their wealth and status, celebs naturally have access to expensive and time-consuming treatments and products that help them look the way they do! In addition, it's well-known that Hollywood has an ageism problem, especially when it comes to women. So this list is in no way a knock on anyone's age! Just an amalgamation of appreciation, thirst, and/or admiration. Without further ado, let's proceed!

1. Lenny Kravitz

2. Thomas Brodie-Sangster

This list would be incomplete without Thomas, but you already knew this. Yup, this baby-faced heartthrob — who is now Emmy-nominated for his stellar performance in The Queen's Gambit  — is only 31.

3. Vera Wang

The renowned designer is literally 72. I know, I can't wrap my brain around it either.

4. Halle Berry

Everyone knows Halle has looked the same for the past decade or two, so it's hard to believe the actor is 54.

5. Bianca Lawson

Bianca has played a teenager as a grown adult since forever, most notably as Maya in Pretty Little Liars when she was in her 30s. And I think it's safe to say she could probably still do that for another decade — despite being 42.

6. Samuel L. Jackson

Yup, you are looking at a 72-year-old man. You didn't hear it from me, but I think Samuel and Vera are the reasons why we haven't found the Fountain of Youth yet.

7. Avril Lavigne

The now 36-year-old pop rock legend still doesn't like your girlfriend and thinks you should do something about it...

8. Elliot Page

9. Jeff Goldblum

Dear reader, for the sake of transparency, here's exactly what happened as I researched for this post: I casually looked up Jeff's age, thinking about whether I should include him or not. And once I saw his age, I literally (actually, not exaggerating) gasped and said, "Shut up." He is 68. Just let that sink in.

10. Gwyneth Paltrow

Is it the Goop? I'm just kidding, but whatever it is — it's clearly working. Gwyneth is 48, but doesn't look a day over 40.

11. Skai Jackson

OK, so maybe I refuse to accept the passage of time or whatever, but — to me — Skai is the same baby we first saw in Disney Channel's Jessie! And the way I can't believe it's been 6 years since the end of the series is the same way I can't believe that Skai is now 19.

12. Shakira

Anyone who's anyone knows that Shakira is a timeless beauty. The Colombian singer is 44 and a mom of two!

13. Linda Cardellini

There is nothing (and I mean nothing) Linda Cardellini can't do. Other than look bad ever, of course, because that's just simply impossible for her. At 46 years old, she could still kill it as Velma Dinkley. 

14. Andrew Garfield

I know what you're thinking while looking at these pictures of Andrew (and Alexandra Shipp) on the set of Tick, Tick...Boom! "Surely, this boyish-looking man cannot be 37 years old." Well, believe it, babes.

15. Jada Pinkett Smith

This multi-hyphenate icon is 49 (soon to be 50), and I think I speak for everyone when I say she looks damn good!

16. Jamie Chung

You recently saw Jamie in Lovecraft Country, absolutely stealing every scene she was in. While it seems just like yesterday she was playing college students and high schoolers, the actor is 38.

17. Brandy

I will just put it plainly: My brain refuses to compute the fact that Brandy is 42 years old. No human is perfect...but Brandy gets pretty damn close!

18. Reese Witherspoon

19. Justin Long

Believe it or not, the He's Just Not That Into You heartthrob recently turned 43. According to his IMDb bio, Justin is a "likable, boyish-looking actor with thick eyebrows and a friendly smile." Honestly couldn't have said it better myself.

20. Nicki Minaj

21. Sofia Vergara

I'm convinced the Sofia Vergara, who is now 49, does not believe in the passage of time; the hair flip says it all. 

22. Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Mary could literally play her character in a reboot of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World or Sky High, and I would believe that no time has passed. The Birds of Prey star is 36.

23. Michael Cera

What do the cast of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World know that we don't? Michael, like Mary, somehow evades time and looks pretty much exactly the same as he did more than 10 years ago — when he played a high schooler. He's now 33.

24. Aubrey Plaza

25. Christina Aguilera

An essential figure in the 2000s zeitgeist, Xtina could look effortless in just about anything. The powerhouse singer is 40.

26. Jesse Eisenberg

In the same vein as Michael Cera, Jesse's genes stopped doing the whole getting older thing circa 2010. The Zombieland star is 37.

27. John Cho

Yup, the Harold half of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle is — somehow — 49! Just as in 2004, the now-father to a 13-year-old daughter remains a sight for sore eyes.

28. James Marsden

This man is a national treasure and a vision to behold! Look at his natural highlight and suede boots and brown-toned outfit, and try to tell me otherwise! He's just effortless with his coiffed hair, looking stunning while holding an umbrella in the rain. The certified DILF is 47.

29. Mila Kunis

I swear to you that Mila — who is now 37 (soon to be 38) — could reprise her role in That '70s Show in the present day, and I wouldn't even bat an eyelash. Maybe it's all of that not showering that helps? (JK, JK.)

30. Dolly Parton
