30 Celebrities That Are Surprisingly The Same Age

You can never tell how old a celebrity is. Some celebs keep their baby faces forever, and others look older than they are. Whether it be their style, haircut, or just the way they naturally look, some celebs don’t look their age at all. Because of this, we’ll be looking at 30 pairs of celebs who are surprisingly the same age —some are just unbelievable!

#30. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Lindsay Lohan

British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was born in 1987, although she totally looks like a teenager. Whatever products she’s using on her face, we need them ASAP. She started modeling when she was just 15 years old and landed her first big shoot when she posed for Teen Vogue at age 19. Now that she’s 31, she’s still modeling but has also moved on to acting. She became known for her role as Carly in Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

It’s hard to believe that Huntington-Whiteley is in her 30s, just like actress Lindsay Lohan. She also started her career at a very young age —actually, much younger than Rosie. Lindsay got her first modeling gig at the tender age of 3. She modeled for Calvin Klein, and Abercrombie until she decided to pursue acting. She became an instant star when she starred in Disney’s The Parent Trap in 1998 when she was just 12.

#29. Seth Rogen & Harry Shum Jr.

Harry Shum Jr. is a Costa Rican-born American actor, singer, dancer and choreographer, who got his big break in the hit show Glee. He played Mike Chang, a high schooler, on the show, but shockingly, he’s far from being a teenager. In fact, Shum is 37 years old. And when he began working on Glee, he was a grown 26-year-old man. He also played a teenager on Shadowhunters and Step Up 2. His young appearance allowed him to take on many roles made for actual teenagers, which added to his versatility as an actor.

Despite his young looks, Shum is married and has a daughter, and has been in the business for a very long time. Another celeb who’s the same age as him is Seth Rogen, who has been in Hollywood since the late 1990’s. Rogen doesn’t look like a teenager, but he doesn’t look 37 either! And we bet that, if he shaved his beard, he would look even younger. But the fact that these two were born in the same year is really hard to believe; Shum just looks like Rogen’s little brother.

#28. Adele & Vanessa Hudgens

If vampires are real, then Vanessa Hudgens is definitely one of them. She has literally looked the same since her days in the High School Musical franchise. She starred in the first movie playing nerdy girl Gabriella Montez when she was just 18. But, although it seems like something recent, the first High School Musical movie is —brace yourself— 13 years old. However, Vanessa has not aged a single day after that. If anything, she looks younger.

The opposite happened to Adele, as people thought she was older than she actually was when she began her singing career. Her beautiful, mature voice and her elegant, vintage fashion style made people mistake her for an older girl, but she was only 19 when she released her first album. In fact, Adele and Vanessa are the same age, and Adele is barely a few months older.

#27. Will Smith & Terry Crews

We have two more vampires on our list! It seems like Will Smith hasn’t aged a single bit since his Fresh Prince of Bel-Air days, to be honest; all he did was change his clothes! It doesn’t seem like it happened that long ago, but the first episode of the show aired in 1985 when Smith was 17 years old. Today, however, after many successful movies, 22 years of marriage, and three children, Smith is 50 but looks 20 years younger.

The same thing goes for Terry Crews, who’s also 50. He looks just like what he looked like when he starred in the 2002 comedy White Chicks. The truth is that Crews’ career spans almost 30 years. He started out as a football player and later pursued his dream of becoming an actor. He cemented himself as a comedy actor but also enjoys painting and design. So much so, that while on the NFL, he drew portraits of his fellow players. Is there anything this guy can’t do?


Despite her signature smokey eye, which makes most people look older, Taylor Momsen has looked like a teenager for over a decade. She started out as a child star, starring in The Grinch at the tender age of 6. She later became an it-girl thanks to her work in Gossip Girl, which allowed her to pursue music on the side with her band The Pretty Reckless. It’s hard to believe that the baby-faced actress is actually 25 years old.

We can say the same about Ariana Grande, who stands at an adorable 5″ ‘2 and looks like a Barbie doll. She’s also 25, believe it or not, and has been in the show business for a long time. She started out in Broadway when she was only 13, and later had her big break as Cat Valentine in Nickelodeon‘s Victorious. The show was such a hit, that she got her own spin-off, Sam and Cat. Afterward, her singing career skyrocketed to superstardom. In these 12 years that have passed, she really hasn’t aged at all.


Robert Downey Jr. is one of the most popular actors in the world at the moment. He is so on demand, that he makes approximately $80 million per year. The Iron Man star is also considered one of the sexiest men alive – and rightfully so! He really doesn’t look a day over 40, but the truth is that the Avengers actor is 54 years old. The fact that he doesn’t have a single grey hair makes it even more difficult to believe.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

It is very easy for some celebs to look younger than they are; after all, they’ve got the money to do it. But other stars choose to age naturally and gracefully and embrace their grey hair. One of them is John C. Reilly, who’s the same age as Downey. In fact, he’s a few months younger than him. Other stars who are also hitting the 54+ mark are Don Cheadle, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Courteney Cox, can you believe it?

#24. Thomas Brodie-Sangster & Liam Hemsworth

Thomas Brodie-Sangster started his career at a very young age. The British actor got his first acting gig at age 11 and had his big break playing Sam in the hit movie Love Actually. Since then, he appeared in numerous films, such as Nanny McPhee and Nowhere Boy. He played teenagers and young boys in most of his films, but the truth is that he’s not a boy anymore. In fact, he’s 28 years old. So he’s been taking child actors’ roles for quite some time.

Photo: Courtesy of Wereblog

Although Thomas is about to enter his thirties, he’s still kept his baby face. Even in his most recent big role as Jojen in Game of Thrones, he played a 15-year-old. The opposite happened to Australian heartthrob Liam Hemsworth, who, thanks to his incredible physique and his bushy beard, always looked a bit older than he really was. He didn’t play teenagers for long and moved on to more mature roles very quickly. But the truth is that these two young actors are exactly the same age.

#23. Jim Parsons & Andrew Lincoln

Jim Parsons made audiences all over the world fall in love with him due to his role as Sheldon Cooper in the hit comedy The Big Bang Theory. Young people of today basically grew up watching the show, which is scheduled to end later this year after running for a total of 12 seasons. But everyone can agree that, during these 12 years, Parsons hasn’t aged a day. From his hair to his face and his outfits, he’s looked the same this whole time.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

We can definitely add Parsons to our list of possible vampires that have infiltrated the show business. At the moment, he is 46 years old, which is unbelievable. He’s the same age as The Walking Dead ex-frontman Andrew Lincoln, for example. Although Lincoln also looks much younger than he is, his bushy gray beard and deep voice can’t let you mistake him for a teenager, which cannot be said for Parsons.

#22. Jamie Lee Curtis & Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the biggest names in Hollywood during the 1980s and 1990s and received international acclaim for her work in both comedies and dramas. We all remember her from huge films like Scarface, Dangerous Liaisons, and Hairspray. She’s also been considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the world. But can you believe that the blond bombshell is actually 60 years old? She definitely looks 20 years younger, at the very least.

Photo: Courtesy of News at Stars

Another actress that has been around as long as Pfeiffer is Jamie Lee Curtis. She became known for her role in John Carpenter‘s Halloween and has appeared in countless films since then. Curtis is also 60 years old, but she has taken a different approach towards aging. She embraced her silver hair and has sported it short for many years, making it her signature look. And, to be perfectly honest, nobody can rock silver hair like her!

#21. Kylie Jenner & Maisie Williams

Kylie Jenner entered the celebrity world at the young age of 8, when the reality show centered around her family, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, aired for the first time in 2005. Viewers watched her grow up before their eyes. Now, she’s the youngest billionaire in the world, thanks to her business ventures as a fashion designer and makeup manufacturer, beating Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

Her looks changed drastically over the years, and she became a mother two years ago. Because of this, people somehow got the idea that she was older, but in fact, the young celeb is just 21 years old. She’s the same age as Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who also grew up in the spotlight. Her short height and adorable face, however, make Williams look even younger than she is, and people are always surprised when they hear she’s a total grown-up.


Brad Pitt is, without a doubt, one of the most famous celebrities in the world. His breakout role was in the cult classic Thelma & Louise, and he has appeared in countless films since then. The handsome star was also named People Magazine‘s sexiest man alive a whopping three times -and rightfully so. But, the truth is that Pitt has been breaking hearts for over five decades, and he’ll turn 56 at the end of the year.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

Although he has been sporting silver hair for a few years now, we just can’t believe he’s so close to his 60s! He still looks the same as he did ten years ago. He’s also the same age as his dear friend, the legendary director Quentin Tarantino. The Kill Bill creator has said that he is planning on retiring when he turns 60, but we’re hoping that’s not the case – and we also hope Pitt doesn’t get any ideas from his friend either!


is one of the many celebrities on this list that still looks like he’s in his teens. But how could that be possible, if he’s been in the film industry since the early 1990s? His big break was in 1996 in the sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun, where he played Tommy Solomon for six seasons. He later moved on to roles on the big screen, such as 500 Days of Summer, and Inception. Despite his young looks, Gordon-Levitt is 38 years old.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

British actor and star of The Avengers Tom Hiddleston is the same age as Gordon-Levitt, and they were actually born 10 days apart. Although he does look older than Joseph, Hiddleston definitely doesn’t look 38. It seems as though celebs who were born in 1981 were caught in a time warp where they stopped aging. Other stars who also stopped aging in 2002 are Rami Malek, Alicia Keys, and Natalie Portman, who were all born in 1981. Unbelievable!

#18. Britney Spears & Beyonce

The next two celebs on our list became icons in the 1990s. Britney Spears blew the music world away in 1998 with the release of her first single, Baby One More Time, which became an instant success. After that, only hits followed, such as Oops! I did it Again and Toxic. She became the princess of Pop and is still hitting the top of the charts to this day. The same can be said for Beyonce, who completely changed the game when she stepped into the music scene with her fellow members of the R&B group Destiny’s Child.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

In the 2000s, Beyonce decided to go solo, and with every album she released, she cemented her position as the most successful performer of recent years. Although these two basically made their careers at the same time, people seem to forget that they started out at the same age and that they were both born in the same year. Perhaps, it is because the two music legends never worked together. But the truth is that these two were born in 1981, and will be turning 38 this year.

#17. Seth Green & Ed Helms

Actor Seth Green honestly doesn’t look oder than 30, does he? He still looks just as he looked when he starred in Austin Powers in 1997. But in fact, he’s been around way longer. Green had his first appearance on the big screen in the 1984 film Billions for Boris, when he was ten years old. Therefore, he was born in —wait for it— 1974, and is turning 46 next year. How is that possible? Nobody knows, really.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

One explanation for Green’s age being mistaken often might be that, since he’s mostly done voice acting and work as a creator and producer, we don’t get to see his face that often, and he’s mostly remembered as a young boy in his teens. An actor who is the same age as him and actually does look his age is The Hangover star Ed Helms. Others who also share the same birth year as Helms and Green are Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Adams, and Sarah Paulson. Crazy, right?

#16. Gwen Stefani & Cate Blanchett

The amazingly talented Cate Blanchett has been gracing the big screen for almost thirty years. She had been acting for over ten years when she had her big break in Oscar and Lucinda in 1999, for which she received international praise, and the rest is history. She’s only been climbing up the Hollywood ladder ever since, and she already has two Academy Awards under her sleeve. It’s hard to believe that the gorgeous Australian actress is turning 50 this year!

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

But, when it comes to looking younger than you actually are, it is Gwen Stefani who takes the cake. It is unbelievable that the musician is also turning 50 this October, mostly because she has looked the same for over 30 years. She has been sporting her bleached-blond hair and red lips since her debut with No Doubt in 1986, and hasn’t changed even a little bit. She’s definitely got the best genes out of the gene pool.

#15. Nick Offerman & Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Actor, comedian and writer Nick Offerman became known for his role as Ron Swanson on the hit comedy Parks and Recreation. Even though he enjoys the acting business, he actually does carpeting on the side and seems to be living his best life at the moment, being 48 years old. His signature look is, of course, his long, bushy grey beard, which suits him very well —I mean, could you imagine him without it?

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

But something that is even harder to imagine is that Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is the same age as Offerman, and that they’re both pushing 50. Luckily, you don’t need to imagine it, because it’s very real. The Game of Thrones star has looked the same for the last 20 years, and only the very few grey hairs that he has give away his real age. He’s never looked better!

#14. Vin Diesel & Paul Giamatti

As is the case with many of the celebrities on our list, grey hair is a very obvious sign of someone’s age. But actor Vin Diesel solved this problem by shaving his hair since the dawn of time and thus making us completely unable to guess how old he is. The Fast and the Furious frontman has looked the exact same since the first installment of the franchise came out in 2001, hasn’t he? So you might want to sit down before you hear how old he is.

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

Diesel is actually 51 years old, and shares his birth year with Paul Giamatti, for example. But, looking at them side by side makes it really hard to believe it is indeed true. Giamatti embraced his grey hair and has been sporting a thick, grey beard for many years now. Other stars who are surprisingly 51 years old are Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, and Lisa Bonet.

#13. Chuck Norris & Michael Gambon

Sir Michael Gambon has been active in the film industry since 1960. In the almost 60 years he has been working, he has done numerous theater plays, movies, and also worked on the small screen. It is no secret that the Irish actor, who is known by many as Dumbledore from the Harry Potter franchise, is 78 years old. After such a long and impressive career, he has 172 credits to his name. And the best part is, he’s not planning on stopping anytime soon.

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

But what many people don’t know, is that fellow actor Chuck Norris is also the same age. How is that possible? We certainly don’t know, because Norris stopped aging when he turned 50. The martial artist and filmmaker began his career in 1968, and has appeared in a total of 42 films and series since then. The fact that he has zero wrinkles on his face makes it even harder to believe that the actor will be 80 at the end of next year.

#12. Madonna & Ellen DeGeneres

Basically, every single person in this world knows who Madonna is, and how she started her career. Her first album dropped in 1982, and her first number one single, the iconic Like a Virgin, came out in 1984. She skyrocketed into fame after that, and released many more #1 bangers, such as Vogue, Like a Prayer, and Hung Up. The legendary singer has been making music for over 40 years.

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

So, it is no secret that the queen of Pop is turning 61 later this year. But the same doesn’t apply to Ellen DeGeneres, who is the same age as Madge. The famous comedian has looked the same since the 1980s, so it’s very hard to believe that that’s her real age. The fact that she has perfect skin makes it even harder to guess. We only wish we could look as good as these two when we hit the 60+ mark!

#11. Nicolas Cage & Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves is not only known for his amazing performances in films such as The Matrix, Speed, and The Devil’s Advocate but also because he has been called the “nicest guy in Hollywood”. Another thing the Lebanese-born actor is known for is the fact that he hasn’t aged a single day since the 1990s. He has even been the subject of a popular internet conspiracy theory, that claims he’s immortal because he still looks like he’s in his 30s.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

But the hard truth that the world doesn’t want to accept, is that Reeves is 54 years old, the same age as fellow actor Nicholas Cage. Cage has been acting since 1981 and has appeared on numerous films, such as Leaving Las Vegas, Con Air, and National Treasure. Although he looks amazing, it’s not so hard to believe his age, as opposed to Reeves’ case.

#10. Halle Berry & Cynthia Nixon

The beautiful and talented Halle Berry has taken part in the film industry for a whopping 30 years, but everyone seems to forget about it. Perhaps, it’s because of the fact that she looks like a 30-year-old herself. In truth, she starred in her first movie, Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, in 1991, when she was 25. Ten years later, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Monster’s Ball. It’s hard to believe that she’s currently 52 years old, isn’t it?

Photo: Courtesy of Bright Side

Apart from being an actress, Berry has also modeled in many occasions, and she was the 1st runner-up in the Miss USA Pageant and come out in 6th place in the 1986 Miss World Pageant. She still looks like a beauty queen and hasn’t changed at all. But she’s the same age as Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, Salma Hayek, and Adam Sandler. Wow!

#9. Pharrell Williams & Eric Dane

Pharrell Williams started out as the lead vocalist of the band N*E*R*D* and later pursued a solo career that launched him into superstardom. He also enjoys working behind-the-scenes as a producer, songwriter, entrepreneur, and fashion designer, and has won a total of ten Grammy Awards. So, how can one man find so much time to do all these things at such a young age?

Photo: Courtesy of City Femme

The truth is that Pharrell looks much younger than he actually is. Although he doesn’t look a day over 30, the American musician is actually 46 years old. Another celebrity who also looks 20 years younger than he is is actor Eric Dane, who’s the same age as Pharrell. Dane has been in the business since 1991, and his looks haven’t really changed since then.


We all know who Tom Cruise is. After all, he’s one of the highest-paid actors of all time and has starred in numerous box office hits. His most famous role has been as Ethan Hunt in the Mission Impossible franchise, but he’s also had many other successful movies, such as Top Gun and Risky Business. So, we also know that he’s been around Hollywood for a long, long time. Yet, it seems crazy to hear that Cruise is actually 56 years old.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

It might be his fabulous brown hair, his pearl-white smile, or just his ridiculously good genes, but somehow he’s looked the same for decades. The handsome actor is the same age as comedian Jon Stewart, for example, who, unlike Cruise, sports silver hair and a beard. Other stars who are the same age are Jim Carrey, Tommy Lee, Steve Carell, and Demi Moore.


Andie McDowell debuted in the film industry in 1984 in the film Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes. A few years later, she received critical acclaim for her role in Sex, Lies, and Videotape. The gorgeous actress has also been the face of L’Oreal since 1986, mostly promoting their anti-age products. And they couldn’t have chosen a better spokeswoman, because McDowell is actually —wait for it— 60 years old!

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

Given that she’s been in the industry since the 1980s, it shouldn’t be such a shocker, but after taking a look at her, it’s impossible to believe she’s really that age. McDowell is the same age as actress Annette Bening, who is best known for her roles in The Grifters, American Beauty, and Being Julia. She also entered the Hollywood scene at the same time as McDowell.


Michael Cera entered the spotlight when he was just a child. His first role was portraying a young Chuck Barris in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind in 2002. Then came his big break on Arrested Development, where he played George Michael Bluth. But, it seems as though he hasn’t aged a bit ever since then. Even after appearing in big films such as Superbad and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, where he played a teenager, he still didn’t change.

Photo: Courtesy of Ritely

It’s hard to believe that Cera is actually 30 years old now, the same age as Icelandic actor


Tobey Maguire appeared in a film for the first time when he was 14 in 1989, and for many years after that, he played characters that were much younger than he was in real life. As late as 2002, he was still playing teenagers, although he was already in his mid-20s. He gained recognition for playing Peter Parker in the Spiderman trilogy where -—yup, you guessed it— he also played a teenager.

Photo: Courtesy of Bright Side

But the young-looking movie star is actually 43 at the moment, which is hard to believe. In fact, he’s the same age as Kristian Nairn, the Irish actor best known for his portrayal of the beloved Hodor in Game of Thrones. Ever since the first season, Nairn has had grey hair and a grey beard, which is a shocking contrast with Maguire, even though they were born just a couple of months apart.

#4. Angelina Jolie & Chelsea Handler

Angelina Jolie has always been known for not only her talent as a versatile actress but also her great looks. The Academy Award winner has been in the industry since she was born, as both of her parents, Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand are both actors. She pursued a career in the modeling industry before she began acting in 1982 and now holds 56 credits to her name.

Photo: Courtesy of Bright Side

Another celebrity who is the same age as Jolie is a comedian and talk-show host, Chelsea Handler. She hosted her own talk show, Chelsea Lately, for a whopping 13 years on the E! network, and later hosted Chelsea on Netflix. The gorgeous starlet also looks like she’s still in her mid-30s and definitely not in her mid-40s. One could only hope to look like these two!

#3. Paul Rudd & Matthew Perry

Paul Rudd is another legendary Hollywood vampire who literally hasn’t aged since the early 1990s. He made his acting debut in the 1992 drama series Sisters but didn’t reach full-blown fame until he starred in 1995’s Clueless. After that, he went on to star in countless movies – mostly comedies. But he’s also proven to be a qualified action movie actor when he took on the role of Antman in 2015. But, if you put a picture of him in Clueless together with a current one, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

In spite of that, the successful actor is currently 50 years old, believe it or not, and we could only wish to know his secret to eternal youth. But, if you consider his work history, it shouldn’t be so surprising. After all, he also had a recurring role in the hit 1990s comedy series Friends playing Mike, alongside Matthew Perry, who was born in the same year as him. The two look completely different from each other nowadays, however.

#2. Eva Mendes and Amy Adams

Eva Mendes got her first acting gig in 1998, but she didn’t have her breakthrough role until 2001, when she starred in Antoine Fuqua‘s Training Day. Her performance led to bigger parts in films and established her as a highly-demanded actress in Hollywood. Due to her incredible looks, she also worked as a model. The beautiful actress hasn’t changed much since her the 2000s, but she turned 45 last month. Yup, Eva Mendes is 45, let that sink in.

Photo: Courtesy of City Femme

Another A-lister who was also born in 1974 is Amy Adams, who also doesn’t look older than 30. She started acting in 1994, and slowly climbed up the Hollywood ladder, eventually becoming one of the highest-paid actresses in the world. She was also nominated for six Academy Awards. It’s no wonder that the red-haired beauty was cast as a princess in Disney‘s Enchanted in 2007, and she hasn’t changed since then.

#1. Jared Leto & Martin Freeman

The #1 spot on our list absolutely had to go to these two, because it is completely impossible to conceive how these two are the same age. Well, actually, it is absolutely unbelievable that actor and musician Jared Leto isn’t a teenager anymore, to begin with. He started out as a TV actor doing minor appearances until he reached recognition for his role in My So-Called Life in 1994. Later, he moved on to the big screen, where he eventually won the Academy Award for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Photo: Courtesy of Twenty-Two Words

He is also the lead vocalist of 30 Seconds to Mars, for which he received worldwide recognition, and sold 15 million albums. So, how did Leto manage to do all of that and be in his mid-20s? Well, he’s well past his 20s actually. In fact, he’s 47 years old; the same age as silver-haired British actor Martin Freeman. How that’s possible is a question that, sadly, remains unanswered.
