In a world filled with photoshop and filters, sometimes even our favorite stars don't seem their age. Luckily, that's where we come into play: from JoJo Siwa to the Jenners, have a look at these celebs and their unexpected ages.
She'll always be Jenny from the block. But while it's already been decades since she first reminded us exactly that, she doesn't have a single wrinkle to show for it. Which begs the question: how old is J.Lo really?
Believe it or not, the Jenny From the Block hit-maker is 51 years old. Despite having 2 grown children and a thriving career, she's still the same unstoppable beauty we first met back in the day. But there's lots more where that came from. Keep scrolling...
Kylie Jenner: 23
Leave it to the Rise and Shine mastermind to hit us with a wake-up call. The youngest of the Kardashian klan, Kylie has been blessing our screens for ages now. Perhaps that's why it shouldn't be much of a surprise that, well, she's all grown up. But just how old are we talking?
Perhaps not as "old" as that picture suggests. Stormi's momma is actually only 23-years-old. Bible. But from the Hollywood glam to her posh style, Ky looks more like a cast member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And we're certainly here for it.
Gwen Stefani: 51
We should warn ya, what we're about to say is truly bananas (b-a-n-a-n-as): Gwen Stefani is more than twice the age of Lorde. But while she may not be the same 20-something-year-old punk rocker we first fell in love with back in the '90s, how old are we talking?
51 years-old. Yep. Don't speak, we know just what you're thinking: How. Allow the No Doubt artist to help us out here. "I haven't really gone anywhere. I'm still doing the same thing. I still wear the same kind of stuff... It's just an evolution," Gwen explained. Couldn't have said it better.
Sofia Vergara: 48
Sure, she knows how to keep things interesting. But we're not here to talk about Gloria Delgado's slightly aggressive and overprotective antics (*a moment of silence for Manny*). We're here to talk about the Modern Family star's time off-screen, which has her looking more like Hailey Dunphy's sis than step-grandma.
As for how old Sofia Vergara really is? The Colombian-American beauty is almost 50 years old. That's right, the 48-year-old actress might be more than double Hailey's age off-screen, but she doesn't have a wrinkle to show for it. Just like our next star...
Millie Bobby Brown: 17
Millie was just 12 years old when we first watched her fend off evil Demogorgons. But in our eyes, she's still that same little girl sporting a buzzcut, scarfing down all those Eggos. Well, folks, allow this picture below to remind us that the Stranger Things star is indeed all grown up.
Shocked to hear she's only 17 years old? Or perhaps you still consider her a "baby." It appears there's actually good reason for that: "I wear a crop top, and people are like, 'She's 10.' Or I wear high heels…, and they're like, 'She looks 50.' No, it's because you've watched me since I was 10," the actress explained.
Tyra Banks: 47
Wanna be on top? You don't need to be that "perfect" size or perfect Ty's famous smize (though we'd certainly love some pointers on that one, btw). Much like Miss Brinkley, Tyra Banks is living proof that there's no age limit to beauty. After all, look at the girl.
One look at that pic, and we'd never know the America's Next Top Model icon is already 47-year-old. But whether she's 47 or 27, she's not going anywhere. "You may be 50 years old, you may have cellulite, you may have a big forehead, or you may have freckles all over your face... you can smize, and you can slay," Banks assured.
Amelia Gray Hamlin: 20
We're all too familiar with her famous mom, but make no mistake about it: Lisa Rinna's youngest is officially one to look out for. The model has made quite the name for herself over the recent years. Including, of course, her relationship with Scott Disick that's been hijacking our feeds ever since its debut.
To the naked eye, it might not sound like much - just another happy couple, right? But don't let Hamlin's plummed lips, perfect curves, and mature style confuse ya: the brunette beauty only just turned 20 years old - making her 18 years Disick's junior. We'll just leave that one here...
Kourtney Kardashian: 42
Maybe it's from her time with Addison Rae. Or perhaps it's from her remarkable figure (which seriously never ceases to amaze us, btw). Whatever the case may be, Kourtney Kardashian is exactly as youthful as she was when we first met her back in 2006.
In fact, as Kourt rings in her birthday each April, it's almost as if she's aging... backward. Whether it's thanks to those Poosh-approved salads or all those extracurriculars with Travis Barker, the 42-year-old beauty is officially living her best life. And you can bet we'll continue to keep up.
Skai Jackson: 19
It may seem like just yesterday we watched Zuri Ross give her nanny a run for her money (and look adorable doing so, of course). But maybe that's because the Jessie child-star hasn't aged a day since. Skai Jackson has been gracing our screens for over a decade now, but if there's one thing we still can't grasp? It's her age.
How old is Miss Jackson, exactly? While her looks might just suggest otherwise, the actress is already 19 years old. Allow us to put that in perspective for a sec: That's about the same age Debby Ryan was when she played her nanny on the Disney series. Feel old yet?
Bianca Lawson: 42
Got a secret, can you keep it? Most of the time, when we meet high-schoolers on our screen, they don't quite look the way we did back then. But forget their perfect six-packs and platform pumps for a second. We're here to talk about Bianca Lawson's time playing a 16-year-old.
Ring a bell? Back in 2010, Rosewood gained its newest resident as the 31-year-old actress starred as Maya St. Germain. But hey, if there's any actress who can successfully play a teen, it's clearly this girl. The Pretty Little Liars beauty is so youthful, we can't believe she's already 42 years old today.
Alexis Bledel: 39
Just us, or is it physically impossible for Alexis Bledel to age? Maybe it's those piercing blue eyes of hers that have us not seeing things straight. Nonetheless, the Gilmore Girls actress might just be living proof that age is just a number. As for what hers is?
The blue-eyed beauty is nearly pushing 40 years old. Yes, really. Alexis Bledel rang in her 39th birthday back in September. And while the actress since said bye to her days behind the desk at Chilton, she'll always be the same Rory Gilmore we fell in love with back in the early '00s.
There are apparently many things we didn't know about the Royals singer. For starters, her real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor (after all, did anyone really think her name was Lorde?). But perhaps the bigger mystery at play here is the artist's age.
"Hi, I'm Ella... and I'm actually 45," the star joked to Vanity Fair. For those who didn't know, there are endless conspiracy theories surrounding her age. But perhaps with good reason. From Lorde's mesmerizing vocals to her mature aura, the 24-year-old beauty is living proof that old souls truly do exist.
JoJo Siwa: 18
When it comes to our next celeb, the more sparkles (and bows, of course), the better. But while JoJo's poster might be hanging in North West's bedroom, it's not all rainbows and butterflies here. "I've been hated on for YEARS for dressing 'young' and acting 'childish,'" Siwa confessed. Well, how old is she really?
The colorful star is actually 18 years old - older than Charli D'Amelio and the same age as Bhad Bhabie FYI. But just because she's officially an adult doesn't mean she'll be revamping that famous closet of hers. As she put it, "Wearing a hoodie doesn't have an age limit on it. Why would wearing a bow have [one]?" Fair point.
Ariana Grande: 27
Still picture Ari as the teenaged redhead we fell in love with on our Nickelodeon screens? Don't worry, we're not the only ones. "Oh, no school today? You are all out celebrating?" chef Wolfgang Puck recalled of his own misunderstanding after coming face to face with the star at one of his restaurants recently.
Safe to say, the 27-year-old Positions artist doesn't look a day older than… (we'll let you guys finish that sentence). Point is, from the ponytail to her pint-sized figure, Ariana Grande will always remain timeless in our eyes. And on that note: Thank u, next…
Joe Keery: 29
It's hard to remember there once was a time where we hated Steve Harrington. Safe to say, the Stranger Things hunk has done a total 180 on our screens. But it's actually his time outside of Hawkins that we're here to talk about. How old is the "high-school student" off-screen?
We suggest taking a seat for this one: Actor Joe Keery is pushing 30 years old. Yep. The 29-year-old actor is much older than most of us ever realized. Nonetheless, his ability to serve ice cream by day and hunt Demogorgons by night will forever continue to amaze us.
Billie Eilish: 19
Can't stop staring at her ocean eyes? Same. Maybe that's why we were shocked to learn just how old Ms. Eilish really is. While her heavenly vocals and effortless style might put her ahead of the game, she's actually a whole lot younger than we may have thought.
In fact, just a few years ago, Billie was just another 12-year-old girl convinced they were gonna marry Justin Bieber (hey, we've all been there). But while she's now 19 years old, don't think she's forgotten about her first love. "Anything that Justin makes, I'm ready to go," the self-titled Belieber proudly put it. Same.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster: 31
From his role as a mischievous little child in Nanny McPhee to an international chess prodigy, our next star practically grew up on our screens. But that doesn't make his age any less shocking. As for how old the Queen's Gambit actor truly is? It appears we may have been pawned...
Thomas Brodie-Sangster is 31 years old. Yep, that's not a typo. And while his youthful face certainly suggests otherwise, the actor's come a long way since we watched him leave several nannies running for the door. Just like our next star, who was hiding an even bigger secret than his baby sis...
Jason Earles: 44
He may not have played the brightest kid on our screens, but the only one at a loss for words right now is... us. That's right, remember Miley's pesky teenaged brother, Jackson Rod Stewart? The Hannah Montana star was actually far from the college dropout we thought he was...
Not only is actor Jason Earles currently 44 years old, but he was 28 when we were first introduced to him back in 2006. A successful star with endless years of experience under his belt and not a wrinkle to show for it? Talk about living the best of both worlds...
Keanu Reeves: 56
We're gonna have to rip a page out of Neo's book here and take that red pill: While the Matrix star doesn't look a day older since he did back in '99, Keanu Reeves is much, much older than we ever realized. But he'll actually be happy to remind us of that himself...
"I had the classic 40 meltdown. I did," the 56-year-old actor confessed of growing up. "It was pretty funny. But then I recovered." Fast forward to today, and he seems to be living his best life. All we can say is: Mr. Reeves, may you continue to feel as good as you look…
Pharrell Williams: 48
Pharrell Williams is a force to be reckoned with. No, not just because he's happy (clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth). We're talking about the fact that the Happy hitmaker hasn't aged a day since he first stepped onto the scene. But don't worry, "No, I am not [a vampire ]," Williams assured.
Well, how does the 48-year-old manage to maintain that famous youthful glow? "I exfoliate like a madman," the artist confessed. "When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you." And on that note, excuse us, suddenly Sephora's calling our name...
Jared Leto: 49
Granted, we've caught him as a psychopathic criminal, as a rodeo cowboy, as "Angel Face" - but perhaps the most shocking role we've caught Jared Leto take on? That of an almost 50-year-old. That's right, the Suicide Squad hunk is a whole lot older than we thought off-screen.
How old, exactly? Jared Leto is actually 49 years old. But with luscious, long locks and flawless skin, we certainly wouldn't know any better. Which reminds us, we're still waiting on Mr. Leto's nighttime skin-care routine. Any takers? We'll be waiting.
Vera Wang: 71
Whether we're catching them on the Hadid sisters or drooling over 'em in another Vogue spread, Ms. Wang's designs certainly know how to turn heads. The successful designer has been dominating the fashion world for so long now that we almost forgot, well, just how long it's been.
Perhaps that's why we had to do a double-take when we found out Ms. Wang is 71 years young. Take a minute to digest that one. One glance at her toned figure and wrinkle-free face above, and suddenly we've got lots of questions. Is there something she's not telling us? Please do share...
Angela Bassett: 63
When we found out Angela Bassett wasn't indeed the 30-something-year-old we thought she was, of course, we had lots of questions. I mean, just look at her. But if you ask the American Horror Story beauty how she manages to look the exact same after all these years, the truth is actually quite simple.
"What do they expect? For you to be completely broken down?" the goddess explained to Net-a-Porter of growing older. Which, fair point. Just one look at the almost-63-year-old, and it's clear that beauty has no age limit. (Though we'd still love to know her skincare regimen.)
Paul Rudd: 52
Paul Rudd simply doesn't age. Feel free to read that again. It's practically a fact at this point. But if there's more convincing needed to be done here? Allow the picture below to help us out. While we met him as Cher's older brother 25+ years ago, we've been clueless (had to) this whole time as to how old he really was...
Well, how old is Paul Rudd? Maybe late 30s? Perhaps early 40s? As if! The Clueless actor is actually 52 years old. And in the wise words of Cher Horowitz, "Oh my god, I am totally buggin'." Seriously, what's his secret? Perhaps that's something we'll never know...
Lucy Liu: 52
When Lucy Liu first introduced herself as an angel, she clearly wasn't lying. The Charlie's Angel goddess has been taking bad guys off the streets for decades now. And yet she doesn't have a single scratch - or wrinkle - to show for it. How does she do it?
"The main secret is simple," the 52-year-old actress revealed of maintaining her signature, youthful glow. "Drink lots of water, eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and meditate." In the wise words of mom and dad (and now, Lucy): Eat those fruits and veggies, folks.
Sarah Silverman: 50
"I know, aging is like a really slow-moving horror movie, especially for women," the Hollywood comedian joked to Glamour. But forget the fine lines and wrinkles it typically calls for - they simply don't matter. At least where Sarah Silverman is concerned.
Sure, "Your skin is gonna change," as Silverman put it. "But the lines on our faces are valuable." Love to hear it. Though if that's the case, the 50-year-old's flawless face clearly lacks "value." All jokes aside, we hope more people embrace the star's refreshing outlook on growing older.
Lisa Bonet: 53
One look at Lisa Bonet and her beau online, and it's hard to believe we're dealing with a 12-year age gap. No, seriously, we. don't. understand. Sure, Jason Momoa doesn't have a wrinkle to show for himself - but neither does Lisa Bonet. But allow the picture below to do all the talking here.
Lisa Bonet is 53 years old, while her Game of Thrones star husband is 41. But if we ask the actress the secret to her ageless self, it's not an overpriced bottle of serum or exfoliator (sorry, Pharrell). "I really believe that [beauty] starts with who you are," Bonet told her daughter, Zoë.
Chris Rock: 56
We know everybody hates Chris. What we didn't know, though, was that the face behind one of our favorite sitcoms was a whole lot older than we thought. Despite Chris Rock's affinity for cracking jokes or getting "chocolate wasted," the Grown-Ups star is, well, all grown up.
How old are we talking? 56 years-old. But while he may be pushing 60, Rock's youthful, hilarious persona that first put his name on the map is just as evident to this day. Though we can't promise his teenage daughters would agree with us on that one.
Christie Brinkley: 67
Back in the day, numbers meant something. At least where our next celebrity is concerned. "I remember people thinking that after 30, you should never wear your hair past your shoulders... your hemline needed to hover your kneecaps," Christie Brinkley recalled. Safe to say, a whole lot has changed since then.
Despite pushing 70 years old (yes, 70), the ageless beauty continues to defy societal beauty standards one Instagram post at a time. "Everybody's different, everybody's unique," she explained. Safe to say, from bikini shots to barefaced selfies, the 67-year-old model is going to continue doing things her way. And we stan.
Ellen DeGeneres: 63
Laughter might be the greatest medicine, but it also must be the secret to age-defying beauty. Not convinced? Allow our next famous face to do all of the talking here. She's been the queen of daytime TV for almost 20 years now, but one look at Ellen's wrinkle-free face, and we sure wouldn't know any better.
Perhaps that's why you may want to take a seat for this one: Ellen DeGeneres is 63 years old. Yep, not a typo. But from the sound of it? We're just a few laughs away from having ageless skin of our own. "Nothing makes you look younger than a smile, and being happy," DeGeneres assured to CoverGirl.
Sarah Hyland: 30
There must be something in that Dunphy-Pritchett water: just like Sofia Vergara, we watched Haley Dunphy evolve over the years. But one look at that picture below, and we certainly wouldn't know any better. We wonder if Phil's magic tricks had anything to do with this one...
As for how old the eldest Dunphy really is? 30 years old. Yes, really. But no matter how many years go by, she'll always be the same trouble-making teen we fell in love with back in 2009. (Though we're not so sure Alex and Luke would agree with us on that one...)
Hilary Duff: 33
She can change her life (if she wants to), she can change her clothes - but this Disney queen will always be the same bubbly star we fell in love with back in the day. In fact, it may have been years since she toured sold-out Rome arenas, but the Lizzie McGuire star doesn't have a wrinkle to show for it.
Hear that, Ethan? Despite her youthful glow, the blonde beauty is all grown up - 33 years old, to be exact. And while Hilary has yet to come clean about her secret to aging backwards, does it really matter? No matter how old she gets, Metamorphosis will always have a spot in our hearts - and our Spotify playlists, of course.
Maisie Williams: 24
Granted, she's always been ahead of her time. After all, how many of us can say we've successfully fought off trained assassins as a teen? Perhaps that's why we were surprised to hear just how, well, young the Game of Thrones firecracker really is outside of Winterfell.
Believe it or not, Arya Stark is just 24 years old. But from her sword skills to her savage one-liners, the actress's time on our screen has taught us the true definition of being wise beyond our years. Well, that, and the fact that winter is almost always coming…
Bella Hadid: 24
Back in 2017, when Bella said it took her quite some time "to really understand her face," she wasn't alone on that one. The flawless beauty has been dominating our magazine covers for years now. But that doesn't make her surprising age any less, well, surprising.
From her signature cat-eye to her dreamy designer wardrobe, to, of course, the famous smize, perhaps it's no shock the supermodel looks older than she really is. As for how old we're talking? Miss Hadid is only 24 years young. (Which, by the way, makes her Gigi's baby sis.)
Jennifer Aniston: 52
Just because Jen looks the exact same as she did in Central Perk, doesn't mean she wants to hear it. In fact, should you ever come face to face with this Friends beauty, choose your words carefully. "What I do think is becoming dated are things like, 'Oh, you look great for your age,'" Aniston confessed. And with good reason.
"Because at a certain point, you should start to look [bad]? Because that's what that is implying," Aniston explained. Safe to say, the 52-year-old star is living proof that beauty has no age limit. And we're sure Gunther's not the only one who'd back us on that one. (Though we certainly wouldn't mind scoring her nighttime regimen.)
Antonia Gentry: 23
Ah, the joys of puberty. But when it comes to Antonia Gentry, she actually doesn't mind reliving her awkward years on our screens. In fact, she couldn't be happier. "I immediately connected to that and the experiences I had as a teenager in high school," the Ginny and Georgia star confessed.
"She's introverted, she's awkward, she's shy, but she's really smart," the 23-year-old actress reflected of her time as Ginny. "It was cathartic, and I got some sort of closure from playing her." Leave it to this goddess to make our teenage years look graceful…
Nicola Coughlan: 34
If you're anything like us, you were probably too busy trying to crack Lady Whistledown's identity to ever stumble across this shocking secret. Lucky for you, that's where we come in. And what we're about to say might just be more surprising than anything ever written on those gossip columns.
Off-screen, this Bridgerton underdog is actually all grown up. How old are we talking? Nicola Coughlan is 34 years old. Yep, mind = blown. Maybe by the next social season, we'll watch Penelope Featherington's childish antics finally come to an end. Or not. Keep scrolling.
Debby Ryan: 28
From the S.S. Tipton all the way to New York, this Disney star has taken us on one whirlwind of a ride over the years. But forget her time breaking Cody's heart or babysitting (well, attempting to) the Ross kids. We're here to talk about the Jessie actress's surprising age.
While her dough eyes might suggest otherwise, the child-star is officially all grown up. That's right, Ryan is already pushing 30 years old. Nonetheless, the ageless goddess looks the exact same as she did when we first met her aboard the Tipton. Talk about living the suite life.
Megan Fox: 35
Whether it's from her relationship with Machine Gun Kelly or her time as Mikaela Banes, it's hard to remember a time this beauty wasn't dominating our screens. But just how old is the Transformers star? We've got a feeling the number might just come as a surprise.
Fox is 35 years old, though her charm clearly says otherwise. And we're not the only ones who feel that way. "She's like the earth," MGK put it. "When it's summer, it's the hottest summer. When it's winter, it's the most amazing chill. In the fall and spring, it's a beautiful transition." And suddenly we've never felt more single.
Rachel Bilson: 39
We may have met her as the self-titled queen of Orange County, but a whole lot has changed since then. The O.C. firecracker has done a ton of evolving over the years - and we're not just talking about her time with Seth Cohen. (#SethandSummerforever.)
Rachel Bilson is pushing 40 years old. Yep. Feel old yet? Fast forward to today, and Summer Roberts' time off-screen has her as a proud momma to daughter, Briar Rose. Nonetheless, the ageless star looks just as youthful and trendy as she did back in 2003. (Minus all of those Juicy sweatsuits, of course.)
Gabrielle Union: 48
Gabrielle Union knows how to bring it, and we're not just talking about her time as East Compton cheer captain. The Bring it On goddess has been slaying our screens for decades now, which leaves us with only one question: How does she look the. exact. same?
"I don't want to call it a wonder product, but for lack of a better word, it's a wonder product," the 48-year-old star gushed to Elle of her favorite beauty hack: Organic Camellia Oil from her makeup artist Julie Hewett's skincare line. And on that note, excuse us - we've got some shopping to do...
Ashleigh Murray: 33
Psst, we're about to let you in on a little secret. Most of the high-school students we see on our screens are way past graduation. But if there's anyone who can have us convinced otherwise? It's this girl. As for how old the Riverdale beauty really is?
We suggest taking a seat for this one: Ashleigh Murray is 33 years old. Yep. And suddenly we don't know what to believe anymore. As for how she managed to have us all fooled? "I'm like bacon grease queen," the youthful actress joked of her naturally dewy skin.
Mae Whitman: 33
Remember when we watched her navigate high school as the "designated ugly fat friend" (her words, not ours). Believe it or not, the DUFF actress' reality looks very differently off-screen. But we're not just talking about her social rankings or popularity in the halls.
Despite playing a helpless student on our screen, Mae Whitman's brush with teen angst is long gone: the Hollywood actress is actually 33 years old. But hey, if there's anything we learned from her time behind the desk, it's that labels don't mean anything - right?
Jennifer Garner: 49
We may have once watched her morph into an adult overnight, but it appears the real magic has been going on behind the scenes. 15+ years after meeting Jenna Rink, the 13 Going on 30 star looks exactly the same (minus the braces and padded bras, of course).
That's right. As surprising as it may be, Jennifer Garner is already pushing 50 years old. Nonetheless, she'll always be thirty, flirty, and thriving in our eyes. After all, look at her. We're sure Chris Grandy must be punching the air right about now.
Bhad Bhabie: 18
While we never got to catch her outside (how 'bout dat?) back in 2016, we've been keeping up with the Dr. Phil star for quite some time now. But that doesn't make her age any less surprising. Then again, when you go by the name Bhad Bhabie, all odds are off, aren't they?
Despite the millions in both her bank and following count, the viral star is much younger than she seems: 18. But we still wouldn't underestimate her if we were you. "Whether I'm 19 years old working at a pet store or I'm 19 years old with a No. 1 record — I wanna be the biggest I can be," she promised. Stay tuned…
