25 Celebrities Who Look Younger Than Their Age

Let’s face it: some people just get all the luck when it comes to being able to maintain that glow of youth even as they start to age. When it comes to celebrities, there are a whole host of them that we can’t help but be jealous of as we wish we had the chance to beg them to tell us what their secret is for maintaining their fit bodies and seemingly flawless skin. Is it a special cream? Plastic surgery or Botox that wasn’t botched for once? Or do they have private access to the fountain of youth? 

Here is a list of 25 celebrities who look younger than their age. 

1. Halle Berry

Although her hairstyle may have changed over the years, it seems as though that’s the only change that the Catwoman herself, Halle Berry, has endured. While most of us have to stress over the ravages of aging, it seems as though her flawless skin keeps her looking younger and younger every year. What other explanation is there for the fact that she looks as though she’s still in her early 40s instead of just recently turning 57?

2. Jennifer Lopez

When it comes to celebrities who look younger than their age, there was no question that we had to put “On the Floor” singer Jennifer Lopez on the list, considering her seemingly permanent youthful appearance has us “On the Floor” with shock (and jealousy). We can’t be the only ones who have a hard time believing that she’ll be turning 55 years old in 2024. With her firm skin and killer body, we’d be more likely to believe that she’s still in her late 30s, early 40s at the most.

3. Bianca Lawson

44? More like 24. It certainly seems like a more accurate aging of Saved by the Bell: The New Class actress Bianca Lawson, stepsister of fellow upcoming celebrities who look younger than their age entry, Beyoncé. While we know it’s not genetically possible to say that it runs in the family because of their stepsibling status, they do seem to be in possession of some unfair access to the fountain of youth. Do you think they’ll share with us? 

4. Elliot Page

There’s just a baby-face quality to Elliot Page that we can’t seem to get past. The Canadian talent, known for roles in Juno and Inception, is actually 36.

5. Jennifer Aniston

If we didn’t know anybody, we would say that Jennifer Aniston only recently stopped playing one of our six famous friends, Rachel Green, instead of nearly 20 years ago. While many of her co-stars have swung the other way, particularly because of bad Botox (aka Courtney Cox), Aniston has continued to maintain her youthfulness and flawless beauty over the years, becoming an icon for staying fit and healthy while she’s at it. It’s because of this that we can’t believe she’ll be turning 55 in February 2024.

6. Lenny Kravitz

There is no doubt that Lenny Kravitz is a complete stud muffin, and a part of that seems to be thanks to his signature afro hairstyle. Knowing how so many artists rocked it in their youth, aka the Jackson 5, it may be part of the reason we would expect that “It Ain’t Over ‘till It’s Over” singer to be in his 40s instead of about to enter his 60s come May 26, 2024. 

7. Paul Rudd

How is it humanly possible for Paul Rudd to look exactly as he did 20 years ago when he joined the Friends gang in the final two seasons of the show as Phoebe Buffay’s boyfriend-turned-husband? The fact that he was named People magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2021 just goes to show that we’re not the only ones who think so. While he still seems as though he’s rocking his early 30s, he’ll actually turn 55 in April 2024. 

8. Thomas Brodie-Sangster

Thomas Brodie-Sangster is already one of the youngest celebrities to appear on our list of celebrities who look younger than their age. Yet, we still don’t believe that he is actually approaching his mid-30s. With his flawless skin and swooped bang hairstyle, we would have guessed that the Nowhere Boy actor is still a young 22 or 23-year-old. 

9. Ariana Grande

While Ariana Grande is still looking nice and young, we have to admit it’s not the ultimate reason that she makes our list of celebrities who look younger than their age. It’s more like her consistent immaturity that makes us think she’s still just a 20-year-old or even a teen rather than someone who is officially in their 30s as of June 2023. Her over-the-top costumes that often include animal ears and her alleged nasty encounters with her fans don’t help with it either.

10. Daniel Radcliffe

While Daniel Radcliffe has been looking a little more mature these days than in his Harry Potter days, thanks to his funky hairstyle and facial hair, he still has a wonderfully youthful look to him. Perhaps part of it is because we fell in love with him as a kid, so we can’t help but remember him that way. Regardless, Radcliffe is looking like he’s still young and spry at 28 or 29 instead of 35 come July 2024.

11. Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union has been one of our favorite actresses ever since she starred alongside Kirsten Dunst in the OG Bring It On film. At the time, she was already portraying a teen flawlessly when, in reality, she was actually 27 while the rest of the cast were actually in their teens. What’s even crazier is she could still pull that role off today despite the fact that she turned 51 on October 29, 2023. 

12. Nicki Minaj

Perhaps it’s her fun and youthful outfits, combined with her eccentric, colorful hairstyles, but Nicki Minaj is another one of the celebrities who look younger than their age that seems to be a no-brainer to put on our list. It may be that it’s her secret when it comes to presenting her to the public. Well, whether it’s intentional or not, we can’t believe she turned 41 instead of 31 on December 8, 2023.

13. Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is perhaps one of the most popular blonde bombshells in Hollywood, capturing our hearts as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde back in 2001. While she’s continued to take on more and more mature roles since that career-making comedy, even earning an Academy Award for Best Actress, portraying June Carter Cash in the Johnny Cash biopic film Walk the Line, she is still looking as youthful as she ever did. It’s because of that we are baffled to find out that she’ll celebrate her 48th birthday on March 22, 2024.

14. Shakira

Hips may not lie, but Shakira’s hips (and the rest of her) sure could have fooled us when it comes to finding out just how old she actually is. When it comes to our list of celebrities who look younger than their age, we would have staggered to guess that the Queen of Latin Music was perhaps 35 or 36 at most. On the contrary, the Colombian artist will be 47 years old in February 2024.

15. Vera Wang

Thanks to a little show called America’s Next Top Model, it has been ingrained in our brains that fashion has no mercy when it comes to age. While perhaps those rules don’t extend to the fashion designers, Vera Wang sure could have fooled us. There is something about Asian blood that always seems to help in the youth department, too. Wang seems as though she should still be in her 40s instead of closing in on 75 come June 27, 2024.  

16. Alexis Bledel

There’s a reason why Alexis Bledel was able to pull off the rosy-cheeked 16-year-old Rory Gilmore when, in reality, she was already close to 20 when Gilmore Girls premiered. With her doe-like eyes and porcelain skin, we wouldn’t have argued if she were to still take on that character today instead of believing that, in reality, she recently turned 42 (September 2023). Is it possible that she got more out of Tuck Everlasting than just a great acting role? 

17. Andrew Garfield

Andrew Garfield is one on our list of celebrities who look younger than their age, which isn’t quite as drastic as some of the others. Considering his well-trimmed beard and mustache, complete with a tiny soul patch, certainly makes him look mature, we would have still said The Amazing Spider-Man actor was only 36 or 37 instead of starting out his 40s. 

18. Angela Bassett

When Angela Bassett had her breakthrough role as Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to Do with It in 1993, it was proof that she was going to be a new force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. She was just 30 years old at the time of the career-making film, and we’d dare to say that she’s still looking just as good now as she did then, as her skin still remains firm and tight, and she maintains her slim figure. We sure hope we are looking that good when we’re in our mid-60s. 

19. Avril Lavigne

How is it possible that Avril Lavigne isn’t still that teen pop sensation that we all loved in the early 2000s? The multi-talented singer, guitarist, drummer, and pianist, who was considered critical in the development of pop-punk, is looking as youthful as ever, which makes our millennial heart happy. Get ready to feel old, though. The “Complicated” singer will turn the big 4-0 in 2024.

20. Beyoncé

It seems as though Beyoncé isn’t just the Queen B of R&B music, but she’s also the Queen B of fooling us all into believing that she’s still working the early days of being in Destiny’s Child. There’s being disciplined about health and fitness, and then there’s just plain cheating God. We swear, somehow, the “Crazy in Love” singer has done the latter. How else do you explain that she still looks like she’s 25 instead of 42 as of September 2023?

21. Gwen Stefani

While being a mom is a gift (they are the superheroes of the world), it doesn’t always make it easy to maintain the outer appearance. Gwen Stefani seems to make it look easy, however. Even with three boys, the singer-songwriter looks as though she should still be rocking her 30s instead of well into her 50s. In fact, even though she’s seven years Blake Shelton’s senior, it sure seems as though he looks older than her. (Don’t get too bent out of shape. Shelton actually looks like he’s the age he is, 47 as of 2023).

22. Jeff Goldblum

What is it with these 70-year-olds still looking as though they should still be living life in their 40s or 50s? Jeff Goldblum, best known for films like Death WishAnnie Hall, and Little Surprises, just recently celebrated his 71st birthday, yet he’s still looking spry and energetic as ever these days. 

23. Jamie Chung

As already made clear with previous celebrities who look younger than their age entry, Vera Wang, Jamie Chung is just another argument for how those with Asian in their blood seemed to be eternally blessed with flawless looks, rendering them forever youthful looking. Chung, who is best known for her roles in such films as Grown UpsThe Hangover Part II, and Big Hero 6, as well as for portraying Mulan in the ABC television series Once Upon a Time, seems to look as though she’s in her late 20s, early 30s at the most instead of her early 40s. 

24. Gwyneth Paltrow

Is it just us, or does being a blonde seems to help in the youth department? Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, best known for her roles in Emma (1996) and Shakespeare in Love (1998), seems to be an argument for it. How is it even possible that she recently celebrated being 51 in September 2023? We would have guessed she was at least ten years younger.

To round out our list of celebrities who look younger than their age, we have Zendaya who is the clear embodiment of what it means to maintain the fountain of youth. While her getting her start on the Disney Channel may be sabotaging our vision as we still picture the young teen, it still seems as though the “Watch Me Singer” should only now be approaching the legal age to drink. Instead, she’s going to turn 28 come 2024.
