5 celebs who look younger than they really are (you’ll never guess their real age)

2017-08-18 06:00

Cape Town - We get told often that age is just a number, and we can really see it when we look at some celebrities. The god of aging seems to pass them by and they look no older than they did a couple of years ago, and especially do not look the age they are in real life.

Unconvinced? Here’s our list of celebrities who look years, if not decades, younger than their actual ages.

Paul Rudd

The famous immortal barely looks any different to the boy we all fell in love with along with Cher Horowitz in Clueless in 1994. The star of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Forgetting Sarah Marshall is 48 years old, married to producer Julie Yaeger and has two kids – Darby and Jack.

Angela Bassett

She has been a staple on-screen ever since making her first appearance in Ryan’s Hope in 1975, and though this icon who is famous for her roles in What’s Love Got to Do With It and Music of the Heart looks like she could be no older than 30, she is actually 58 years old. She is married to actor Courtney B Vance and has two children – Bronwyn and Slater.

Vin Diesel

The rough-voiced action star of the Fast and the Furious franchise, Riddick and Saving Private Ryan has been appearing in younger roles for so long that it is difficult to believe that he is actually 50 years old. His birth name is Mark Sinclair, and the talented actor has three kids – Hania, Vincent and Pauline.

Charlize Theron

One of our greatest exports Charlize Theron has made waves on-screen – from her Oscar-winning role in Monster to her action performance in Aeon Flux and Reindeer Games – and has the acting maturity of someone much older than her years. But it’s still difficult to believe that the fresh-faced star recently turned 42.

Jamie Foxx

Triple-threat Jamie Foxx is an actor, singer and comedian, amongst other titles, and even through all his accomplishments, the Collateral actor does not look his age of 49. Foxx is not giving off any indication of stopping any time soon with television series, films and more music on the cards.

There are plenty of benefits of looking younger than your age, which is exactly what Liza, on the new series Younger, discovers when she is mistaken for a 26-year-old even though she’s really 40. Posing as a young adult, she gets a job in publishing, a new group of friends, and new opportunities to meet interesting young men.
