15 Actors Who Are Actually Older Than You Thought

It always feels like those celebrities or artists have some certain kind of magic to make them look younger than they actually are, as if time cannot touch them. These 15 artists here truly bring this feeling to us.

1. Jim Parsons – 47

Can’t believe it, right? Nobody will have this thought that Jim Parson is 47. He is the one who played the character of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. It is a great challenge for him to play such a young character in the TV series.

2. Julianne Moore – 59

Who can guess that Julianne Moore was born on December 3, 1960? She is now 59 years old. She was cast many leading roles in different movies and gained the best actress for many times.

3. Gwen Stefani – 50

Gwen Stefan is an American singer, actress, and designer, born in the year of 1969. She was just a young girl when she released her first album “No Doubt”. Nobody would think that her age had reached 50.

4. Jennifer Aniston – 51

Who would have ever believed Jennifer Aniston is51 years old? She was recognized by people in 1994 when she was a young girl then. Going through so many years, she never changed and still kept the sexiest woman in Hollywood. She topped the Forbes list of celebrity for 14 years continuously until 2016.

5. Sandra Bullock – 56

It is hard to believe that Sandra Bullock is 56 years old. In 2010, she won the 82th Academy Award and the Best Actress for “The Blind Side”. In 2014, Sandra Bullock won the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards nomination for the film “Gravity”. She topped the Forbes magazine list of the highest-paid actress in the same year.

6. Rob Lowe – 56

It is knowledgeable that Rob Lowe is famous for his youth image in films. Who would have the idea that Rob Lowe was 56? He began his ABC television series at the age of 15, and won the Emmy Awards for the tv show named “The Time Event”.

7. Gabrielle Union – 47

Remember the Gabrielle Union in Bring It On? We cannot believe that she is still turning heads on stage at the age of 47. As a famous actress, Gabrielle Union has played many sexy roles in different films including the famous movie “Bring It On” and “City of Angels”.

8. Dylan Mcdermott – 58

Dylan McDermott, born on October 26, 1961, is an American actor. It is hard to believe he is 58 years old now. In 1993, Dylan McDermott missed the chance to perform in the film named Jurassic Park, while he got known by most people by acting in the movie called The Practice.

9. Lucy Liu – 51

Wait, Lucy Liu who was born in New York is only 51 years old? In 1990, Liu appeared in the acting field with her first movie named Beverly Hills 90210. Later she won the Academy Awards as well as the 68th Annual Tony Awards nomination list together.

10. Pharrell Williams – 47

Pharrell Williams, born in April 1973, is an American singer and music producer. In 2001, he and his friend established the music band named NERD. In 2003, he won the National Popular Albums Chart Title for his first album “The Neptunes Present: Clones”. Pharrell Williams is so cool that we cannot believe that he is 47 years old.

11. Nas – 47

As the son of jazz musician Olu Dara, Nas was born on September 14, 1973. He is 47, hard to believe, right? Nas proved he was one of the rap’s fiercest lyricists when releasing his album “Illmatic” in 1994. Nas is the King of Queensbridge. Meanwhile, he is regarded as one of the most prolific artists in the recording industry.

12. Chilli – 49

It is hard to believe that the former member of TLC has been 49 years old. After Lisa Lopes was lost in a car accident, the “Crazy, Sexy, Cool” TLC girls will never appear on the stage together again. We cannot figure out her age since Chilli looks still so perfect and great.

13. Common – 48

Born on March 13, 1972, Common is the symbol of hip-pop music and also one of the most talented Raps in the history of artists and writers. He is called the Rap Bob Dylan by people. The jazz-rap style makes Common become one of the few influential American rappers. We still can’t believe that he is only 48 years old.

14. Sade – 61

Nobody would think that such a smoothest, sexiest woman has reached her age of 61. Born in Nigeria and growing up in England, Sade is a good singer; her voice sound is as hot as what she looks. She established her first band named Pride and wrote her famous song “Smooth Operator”.

15. Raphael Saadiq – 54

We still remember Raphael Saadiq for the good R&B pop sounds of Tony, Toni, Tone in the early nineties. Therefore it is crazy to think that he is 54 years old. Except for doing work for himself, he also cooperated with lots of other artists including TLC, Joss Stone, John Legend, etc.
