You Won’t Believe These 35 Celebrities Are The Same Age

Hard living, partying, or just access to some really good plastic surgeons? You won’t believe how old (and how young!) some of these Hollywood celebs really are.

We’ve assembled some of the most jaw-dropping comparisons of actors, comedians, singers and more by their birth years so that you can be the judge. A famous Captain is more than 80 years old, while an equally-famous Pirate Princess is barely into her 30s – you’d never know it without looking at their “birth year twins” for comparison!

1. Jennifer Aniston vs. Jennifer Lopez (Age 47)

2. Jim Parsons vs. Andrew Lincoln (Age 43)


The “Big Bang Theory” actor and the famous (human) face of the Walking Dead could pass for son and father, but their birth certificates were issued the same year. Perhaps all that traipsing around a zombie wasteland isn’t so great for the skin? Bazinga! Speaking of dysfunctional family groups…

3. Sarah Hyland vs Jennifer Lawrence (Age 26)

The eldest daughter on Modern Family and the popular “Hunger Games” actress both passed a quarter-century recently. However, Hyland’s diminutive height – 5’2″ – and baby face make her seem much younger beside the leggy 5’9″ Lawrence, who sports both higher cheekbones and more adult roles. Hyland’s Modern Family mom aged well, though…

4. Sarah Silverman vs Julie Bowen (Age 45)

Julie Bowen plays a mother on Modern Family, but there’s nothing matronly about this beauty. Beside funnywoman Silverman, however, it’s clear that comedy helps keep wrinkles away. The perpetually-hyper Sarah looks a good decade younger than she actually is – so much for laugh lines! Maybe she hopped in the Delorean with our next celeb…

5. Michael J. Fox vs. George Clooney (Age 54)

fox clooney

Great scott! Michael’s looking more Marty McFly and less old-enough-to-be-a-grandfather these days – but Clooney’s salt-and-pepper beard isn’t doing him any favors as far as youthfulness. Is he in training to be a stunt double for the Most Interesting Man In The World? Maybe he’s trying impress the likes of our next set of mid-century-modern ladies…

6. Alison Brie vs Elizabeth Moss (Age 33)

It’s Peggy vs. Trudy! These Mad Men gals would actually be considered old maids, were they stuck in the same century as their characters. Thankfully, the modern day is a little more forgiving in terms of feminine freedoms. At least they didn’t have to wrestle with corsets and colonial rule, unlike half of our next famous pair…

7. Carly Rae Jepsen vs Keira Knightley (Age 30) 

jepson knightley

You may know her best as Elizabeth Swann in Pirates of the Caribbean, but Keira actually shares a birth year with the pop darling Jepsen, the mind and vocal chords behind  the catchy hit “Call Me Maybe.” Swashbuckling swordfights might keep ladies young, but one of our next fellas seems a little worse for wear after his bout in a gladiatorial arena.

8. Rob Lowe vs Russell Crowe (Age 52)

lowe crowe

If eyes are the window to the soul, Rob’s shades are definitely a little bit lighter. Russell’s downturned eyes and sunken appearance makes him look every bit of his 52 years, while Lowe looks bright-eyed and bushy tailed by comparison! Perhaps it was this energy that got Lowe invited to the Daily Show, where he likely bumped into one of our next celebrities…

9. Ed Helms vs Seth Green (Age 42)

green helms

Helms’ penchant for bow ties makes him look a bit older than he actually is, but in a good way. Green, on the other hand, reminds us of a perpetual teenager, unabashed of his love for geek goodies like video games, fantasy movies and, of course, Star Trek, which is where our next famous gent started his enduring career.

10. Robert Duvall vs William Shatner (Age 85) 

shatner duvall

These octogenarians have definitely “boldly gone” where few actors have gone before: into the pages of television and cinematic history. Duvall’s sun-worn visage made him a natural for works like Secondhand Lions, but Shatner’s “captain’s chair” demeanor has netted him a successful stint as a Priceline spokesman, so who’s the real winner here? Staying relevant is important, just ask…

11. Cloris Leachman vs. James Lipton (Age 89)

lipton leachman

Cloris may not have as many starring roles as she once did, but she’s raking it in on cartoon voiceover work, which likely keeps her young. Lipton, ever the dignified host, stepped out of the spotlight when he relinquished his writer’s seat on “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” arguably his most recognizable role. Maybe he could pick up some career-reinventing tips from…

12. Alyson Hannigan vs. Elizabeth Banks (Age 42)


Buffy’s former witchy sidekick may be striding through middle age, but she’s doing it with confidence, thanks to her successful stint on “How I Met Your Mother.” Banks, while still keeping current with her “Pitch Perfect” movie trilogy, is finding herself in more “seasoned” roles, such as the Power Rangers’ Rita Repulsa, filming in 2017. She’s no longer the “One,” something our next celeb can sympathize with…

13. Keanu Reeves vs. Nicolas Cage (Age 51)

reeves cage

Whoa! Say it ain’t so, Neo! 51? At least you’re looking a little younger than your birth year buddy Cage, who doesn’t look like he’ll be rappelling down mine shafts in search of constitutional treasure anymore – at least without help. We can see how heroes age, but what about princesses? You might be surprised to see…

14. Robin Wright vs. Halle Berry (Age 49)

berry wright

Few people  realize that the infamous Buttercup of Princess Bride fame is none other than House of Cards’ Clair Underwood – what a difference flowing locks make! That may be the secret of Berry’s seeming eternal youth – she’s nearly always stepped out with super-short or buzzed hair, which keeps her looking young. Or maybe it’s a potion from the likes of…

15. Michael Gambon vs. Chuck Norris (Age 76)

norris gambon

That’s right, believe it or not, Dumbledore and the name in kicking butt and taking names are actually the same age! Whether it was a spell or just hardcore workouts, it’s safe to say that both these men are looking pretty darn impressive for nigh-80! It makes you wonder what this next famous beefcake will look like in a few decades…

16. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson vs. John Cho (Age 43)

cho dwayne

He created “The People’s Elbow”, whereas his considerably more slender counterpart made his name on drug-fueled White Castle runs, but they’ve both had the same number of years on earth to make their mark. They’ve done pretty well for themselves, but they still have a long way to go to catch up to our next pair…

17. Eddie Murphy vs. Forest Whitaker (Age 54)

murphy whitaker

Murphy is a household name for his outrageous comedy, while Whitaker’s acting chops in the likes of the 2016 Roots miniseries and Star Wars Rogue One keep him firmly in place as a famous actor. Both actors are a mere 54, which means we’ll be enjoying their craft for many years to come. Timeless acting on the small screen defines our next pair…

18. Rider Strong vs. Danny Pudi (Age 37)

pudi strong

Pudi and Strong may have been born the same year, but Strong has made a legacy out of his child stardom days, riding the fame train from Boy Meets World into the modern spinoff, Girl Meets World. Pudi’s stint on Community came to an end in 2015, but he’s still got his youthful looks going for him – not that Strong hasn’t kept his. Series acting seems to bring longevity, if you peek at our next set of celebs…

19. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau vs. Nick Offerman (Age 45)

nik and nick

The reviled Game of Thrones brother and the mustachioed star of Parks and Rec have  more in common than haters: they’re both 45 this year. They inspire people to tune in each week, thanks in no small part to their singularly unique looks. They might want to take some advice from our final duo, if they want to stick around a few more seasons..

24. Taylor Swift vs. Adele (Age 26 & 28)

swift adele

What’s Swift’s secret? Perhaps that ever-revolving suite of handsome boyfriends keeps her young! It’s also hard to imagine Adele, the deep, soulful songstress, is still in her twenties for another two years. Yikes – does Taylor have any of those exes to spare?
