How Is It Possible That Decades Later, These Famous Faces Look The Same?
For most of us, aging is a fact of life. You’re not going to look the same as you did ten years ago, and that’s the way it goes. Not these stars. For them, the years go by, but their face doesn’t age one bit. While some of them have strict diet and exercise plans, others just seem to be lucky! You’ll never guess Gabrielle Union’s true age.
Pharrell is Forever Young

The ultra-talented producer, singer, songwriter, designer and whatever else you want to label him, still has his boyish good looks. Pharrell Williams has been in the music business since 1992 and is still going strong today. He’s also a father to four kids. A son named Rocket, and triplets!
At 45 years old, Williams is still fresh-faced and looking better than ever. He told Dazed magazine, “I exfoliate like a madman. When you exfoliate and you drink a lot of water, that does good for you. To me, the key is just exfoliating, like a monster.”
Halle Berry’s Infinite Glow

Halle Berry is 51-years-old but you would never guess it by looking at her. The stunning actress was ranked No. 1 on People’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” in 2003 and was also ranked No. 1 on FHM’s “Sexiest Women in the World.”
Berry maintains a strict diet as a diabetic and says she eats four small meals each day. She told Good Housekeeping, “I started to eat loads of wonderful fresh vegetables, chicken, fresh fish, and pasta. I cut out red meat and cut back on fruit because it can contain quite a lot of sugar.”

37-year-old Jessica Alba gave birth to three children between the time these two photos were taken but she hasn’t appeared to age one bit! She’s been named as one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and is very diligent in choosing which roles to accept.
Part of Alba’s fresh-faced look can be attributed to her skincare line, Honest Beauty. Her products are designed to help women with their skin and look “fresh, effortless, clean.”

Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez is one of the hardest working people in the entertainment industry. She acts in TV and film and has gone on several music tours. She was also a judge on American Idol. She’s had success with her fragrance and apparel line and the list goes on!
Lopez manages to do all of this and still look fabulous. Her workouts are brutal and she always gives it her best effort. Lopez told Hello Magazine, “I am 100 percent convinced that working out is part of what makes me so happy. Dance has always been a huge part of my life and taking the time to move my body and do something that’s so good for me is key to my happiness.”
Up next, he used to be one of the Friends, but now he and his friends save the world.

Can you believe Paul Rudd is 49?! We can’t either. The comedian first began appearing in films in the ’90s and had starring roles in the ’00s in films like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, and I Love You, Man. Rudd also works behind the scenes as a writer and producer and married Julie Yaeger, who is also a producer.
He trained hard for his role in the superhero film Ant-Man. Rudd’s trainer Brendan Johnston told Muscle and Fitness, “He sets his mind to something and doesn’t stop till the job is done. From strict diet to supplementation, to working out at 5 a.m. He never complained. He only worked.”
Maybe It’s An Island Thing With Rihanna

30-year-old Rihanna isn’t the oldest on this list, but she still looks as young as she did back in 2005. The artist has a personal chef, Debbie Solomon, who makes sure she has only the best food on hand when Rihanna gets hungry while working her busy schedule.
Solomon says Rihanna eats lots of protein and hailing from Barbados, she loves spicy food. Rihanna brings Old Bay seasoning and spices with her on the road. Spice is proven to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke, and some even decrease inflammation. Maybe that’s part of Rihanna’s secret for looking young and stunning.
Mario Lopez Could Pass for a High Schooler

Mario Lopez could play his role as A.C. Slater on Saved By The Bell today, the 44-year-old looks so young. Lopez has earned his youthful appearance with a healthy diet and solid workout routine. He was featured on the cover of FitnessRX in November 2013 with rock hard abs and a physique that many men envy.
Lopez is also a blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a sport that is very demanding and requires people to be in excellent physical condition. It doesn’t look like he’s slowing down anytime soon.
Gabrielle Brings It

Gabrielle Union began her acting career appearing in teen comedies like She’s All That and Bring It On. Union has also been in many high-grossing films like Bad Boys II and currently stars in Being Mary Jane.
Wife to all-star NBA player Dwayne Wade, Union has kept in great shape herself and has always looked healthy and full of energy. She told Women’s Health, “My best anti-aging tip is the ability to say no, no, and hell, no. We run ourselves ragged saying yes to every freaking thing, whether it’s to our family, spouses, or careers. I sleep eight hours a day and don’t let myself stress out. A lot of people call it selfish, but I don’t have any wrinkles.”
Yoga Keeps Adam Levine Looking Young

Maroon 5’s frontman is defying time. Adam Levine has honed his talent while aging like fine wine. At 30-years-old, Levine could pass for a 20-year-old. The artist practices yoga with his private trainer, Chad Dennis, to relieve back pain and quiet the mind. It looks like it keeps him in pretty good shape, too!
However, Levine says he knows he’s going to get old. While working out, he told Men’s Journal, “I’m going to get older, and I won’t be able to do a lot of this. At least I’ll be able to be like, ‘I did that once.’ I want to see what I can do with my body.”
New Style, Same Face For Usher

Born in 1978, Usher is 39-years-old, but you wouldn’t know it. He looks exactly like he did back in 1997 when he released his second album My Way. A phenomenal dancer, Usher is known for his incredible stage performances, that often involve him losing his shirt.
The “King of R&B” brings his trainer on the road with him to stay in shape, and eats clean to get the results he works hard for. Usher also likes to mix up his workouts and cardio, and has been spotted biking around and even trying to stand-up paddleboard.
Owen Wilson Gets Plenty of Rest

Owen Wilson is one funny guy. One of his classic films is Wedding Crashers where he co-starred alongside good friend Vince Vaughn. He’s also done 13 films with Ben Stiller. The Texas native still carries that young boy look at 49 years old.
He suffers from depression but makes an effort to stay healthy. Wilson told WebMD, “One of the biggest things for me is, if I get enough sleep and I exercise, I almost always have a great day. If I don’t get those things, especially sleep, I’m a lot more prone to being irritable and getting sick. When I’m working a lot or traveling a lot, I have to be really careful to get enough sleep.”
Reeves Still Has It

Keanu Reeves made a whole generation say “like the Matrix” whenever they dodge something, so there’s that. It also feels like he has been typecasted to play roles similar to The Matrix, but he does a fantastic job. An example of this is the John Wick film series he stars in.
Repeatedly playing roles where he has to kick some behind with fierce fighting skills, it helps that he has a young face. It would be hard to believe an older looking man can run up walls and do flips.
The next person is another Friends alumni that created a buzz with her famous haircut.
Healthy & Wealthy: Jennifer Aniston

Friends first began filming back in 1994, which is hard to believe because Jennifer Aniston doesn’t look much different now! The series lasted ten years and skyrocketed Aniston to fame. She is now one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood.
They say health is wealth and Aniston certainly has both. Aniston has helped SmartWater boost their brand, and in 2013 she also became a spokesperson for Aveeno Skincare. While drinking plenty of water and taking care of your skin aid in maintaining a youthful appearance, Aniston is in her own league when it comes to her good looks!
Uncle Jesse Remains The Same

John Stamos plays an incredible uncle on Full House but he only guest starred on the Fuller House reboot. Stamos wears various hats these days, but his face will always be the same.
He is always making the “hottest men” lists, and we don’t see an end to that anytime soon. Now 54 years old, Stamos married model and actress Caitlin McHugh in 2017. The couple welcomed their first son, Billy, on April 15, 2018.
Forever Young Angelina

Being a mother of six hasn’t tired-out Angelina Jolie. The beautiful actress is now 42-years-old but looks as gorgeous as ever. She was named the most beautiful woman in the world by Vogue, People, and Vanity Fair, and there’s really no topping that.
As part of her diet, Jolie eats ancient grains; a mixture of quinoa, millet, chia seeds, spelt, and buckwheat. They’re said to help make your skin glow, and we think it’s working!
The Lord Of Youth

Any Lord of the Rings fans will approve of this choice. Elijah Wood can use his college ID card whenever he wants and get away with it. If it weren’t for that little scruff of a beard, then he could have got by with his high school card!
People often associate him with Frodo Baggins, the character he played in The Lord of the Rings. Theoretically, the franchise could have continued with sequels, and Wood’s appearance wouldn’t have changed one bit.
Mendes is all About Skincare

The beautiful Eva Mendes does look a day over 23. Born in Miami to Cuban parents, Mendes grew up in Los Angeles and left college to pursue acting. She eats a healthy pescatarian diet and relieves stress with transcendental meditation.
She makes it a priority to take care of her health and wellness and enjoys working out. She told Shape, “For me, glowing skin comes from the inside. I start to get sallow if I’m not eating well. I take fish oil supplements. And I love coconut oil. I apply it to my face. That’s my go-to. I also drink a lot of water. I always keep a bottle with me and kind of force myself to drink. My skin just looks better when I’m hydrated.”
Jesse Williams Has A Big Heart

Actor Jesse Williams plays Dr. Jackson Avery on Grey’s Anatomy and modeled occasionally throughout high school. Now 36 years old, he doesn’t look different than he did 10 years ago. Producers know what they’re doing, and often have Williams shirtless on Grey’s Anatomy.
Aside from acting, Jesse Williams is heavily involved in civil rights and humanitarian issues. He was the executive producer of Stay Woke: The Black Lives Matter Movement and is on the board of directors for a civil rights organization.

Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld partnered in creating the sitcom Seinfeld. David has been in this industry for a while now, working as a comedian, writer, playwright, and producer, but he still looks the same.
His show Curb Your Enthusiasm has been running since 2000, and his appearance has virtually been the same every season. Whatever David is eating or putting in his water needs to be shared with the rest of world.

The Saturday Night Live episodes that Martin appeared in were among the highest rated. Viewership jumped a whopping one million people when they knew Martin would be appearing on SNL that night.
Laughing has been proven to make people feel younger, so maybe that’s his secret. Blood circulation improves when you’re laughing. It also reduces stress hormones and boosts the immune system too!
