----
* Danneel Ackles (formerly Danneel Harris) was 26 when she signed on to play 16-year old Rachel Gatina on OneTreeHill, but you never would've guessed just by looking at her, even now in her 30s, she looks barely out of high school.
* Creator/AmyAdams is now in her early forties. You wouldn't know it from looking at her--which makes the complaints about Henry Cavill being younger than her in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' seem a moot point, as her Lois certainly ''appears'' younger than Cavil's Superman. In addition, ''Film/AmericanHustle'' has essentially cemented [[MsFanservice her sex-symbol credentials]]...at 39. Her nemesis in the film is played by Creator/JenniferLawrence, who's still in her 20s. In their scenes together, they look about the same age.
* Chris Addison in ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' and ''Film/InTheLoop''. He looks about twelve but is over forty.
* The French actress Isabelle Adjani. She was born in '''1955'''! This is particularily striking in ''La Reine Margot'', where she plays a 19-year old princess pretty darn convincingly. Despite being ''39''.
* Casey Affleck is now 38 but looks about ten years younger. This is usually lampshaded in roles where he is acting alongside actors who are older and look it.
* Keiko Agena was 27 years old when she signed on to play the 16-year old Lane Kim on ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' (only six years younger than co-star Lauren Graham), and many fans couldn't believe it even when they learned her real age. In this case, the DawsonCasting worked out fantastically.
* Creator/FreemaAgyeman. She looks like she's in her early-to-mid twenties on ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'' (her character has been working for the Crown Prosecution Service for about two years after law school - which she'd have completed at about 22 or 23 - as of series 4), despite the fact that she was 30 when the series premiered.
* Also Creator/JessicaAlba, who has had few changes as she did when she debuted in the late '90s. She blossomed early and maintained it all the way today, as she admitted that she already had "womanly curves" at a young age. Regrettably, the downside of this is that this is likely the reason for [[SoBeautifulItsACurse her complaint]] that she can't get the more serious roles that she really wants to have. Luckily, the upside of this is that helps keep her in-demand as a product endorser.
* Damon Albarn from Blur\Gorillaz. In his late twenties he still could have easily passed for a 20-21 years old, and even today he looks at least ten years younger than his age.
* Scott "Klayton" Albert, the man behind the metal/electronic project {{Celldweller}}, looks like he's in his late 20's/early 30's. He was born in ''1963''. Some people have denied this fact, but it's the most common birthdate shown online, plus his first project was in 1992 so it's unlikely he was a kid back then, so most people just go with it.
* [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-557762/Tiny-teenager-India-smallest-girl-world.html Jyoti Amge]], 16, is the world's smallest girl. She is 1'11" or about the size of a 6 month old baby.
%%* Creator/JenniferAniston. Does she look like she's in her forties?
* Shiri Appleby (of ''Series/{{Roswell}}'') is 34 years old as of 2013, and has been convincingly been playing teenagers for over fifteen years. Even though she played a grown woman and mother of the main character on ''Series/LifeUnexpected'', she ''still'' looked like a teenager!
* Speaking of Series/LifeUnexpected Britt Robertson who played her daughter fits as well. She was 19 playing 15 at the time. In 2015 she turned 25 and still could easily pass for 15.
* Creator/AsiaArgento is 38, but looks to be about ten years younger than that. Of course, she is Italian.
* Creator/HirohikoAraki, creator of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', seems to be aging ''backwards''. [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/343/315/b9c.jpg Seriously]].
* How old would you say [[Music/GunsNRoses DJ Ashba]] is in this photo? [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/66/DJ_Ashba_2010.jpg/220px-DJ_Ashba_2010.jpg Twenty-five, twenty-six]]? He's actually forty.
* Music/RickAstley is 49 years old, yet the man [[http://www.mtv.com/crop-images/2013/09/04/Rick%20Astley%20Getty%20Scott%20Campbell%202013.jpg hasn't aged a day]] since [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11118/111184078/4798109-8593081251-80586.png the late 80's]].
* Creator/RowanAtkinson in his fifties could still pass for early-to-mid forties.
* Voice actress Creator/LauraBailey is in her mid-thirties, but looks to be, ''at most'', in her late teens.
* Creator/TroyBaker is 39 but looks closer to 29.
* Adam Baldwin. Did you realize that he's 51? That means he was 40 during Firefly. How many people really look like [[http://rpggamer.org/uploaded_images/JayneCobb12.jpg this]] at forty?
* JamieBamber is another one of these. He was 25 years old when he did the first ''HoratioHornblower'' films but passed for a very convincing seventeen. This continued when he went on to work on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' - he was 30 years old to Creator/KateeSackhoff's 23, but they looked the same age (especially since Katee was playing a character a couple of years older than her actual age). At 40 years old (which in and of itself is still relatively young), he could convincingly pass for someone in his mid-thirties rather than 40.
* Paul Banks of Interpol looks like he's in his early or mid 20s. He's 35.
* Anita Barone is 49 but due to having a hot body, she can pull off playing Georgia Jones, the mother of Creator/BellaThorne on ''Series/ShakeItUp'',who is around her mid-to-late thirties.
* Creator/DaveBarry looks maybe in his 40s [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dave-barry-post-hunt-2011.jpg at the oldest]]. He's 66. This was apparently a longtime issue with him, as he once told ''People'' magazine, "I reached puberty at 30. At 12, I looked like a fetus."
* Ditto for Creator/DrewBarrymore, who in her mid-twenties, was still able to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Never_been_kissed.jpg pass]] as someone in her mid-teens.
* Actor Creator/DanteBasco. He doesn't look like he aged much at all since his role as Rufio in ''Film/{{Hook}}'' and he was 16 back then, and he has been playing and voicing teenage roles.
* Shirley Bassey was born in 1937. And looks 50-ish. Heck, she looks younger than people born after her first hit (The Banana Boat song in 1957)
* Creator/WarrenBeatty is 21 years older than wife Annette Bening (who doesn't look too bad for ''her'' age). [[http://www.elistmania.com/images/articles/114/Original/WarrenBeattyAnnetteBening.jpg You'd never know it to look at them.]]
* Kristen Bell is afraid she'll be stuck like this for a while. A female actress [[SoBeautifulItsACurse actually complained she may look younger for years to come]].
* [[Music/{{Aborted}} Ken Bedene]] is almost 25, but looks fourteen or fifteen at most.
* Creator/MonicaBellucci is 49, but doesn't look any older than thirty.
* Julie Benz is 41 but looks like she's in her late 20s.
* Music/JustinBieber looks 15 at most while being in his twenties.
* Creator/KathrynBigelow is 61 (and was ''58'' when she won her Oscar) but could easily pass for a 30-something.
* Selma Blair of ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' fame is 41 but still looks mid-to late twenties.
* Alexis Bledel of ''GilmoreGirls'' is 32 as of 2013 but looks barely out high school for many years. She was on ''Series/{{Conan}}'' recently telling him how she actually has to wear makeup to look older when she goes out and that a teenage boy hit on her when she was at the airport!
* Creator/{{BRIAN BLESSED}} is already in his late 70s but looks decades younger.
* Music/DavidBowie turned 69 a couple of days before his death in 2016, but looked much younger... he simply escaped the aging process.
* Billy Boyd was the youngest of the hobbits in ''The Lord of The Rings'' but was actually the oldest. Here he is in 2003 at thirty-five: http://scrapbook.theonering.net/scrapbook/movies/characters/pippin/view/9950. In 2012, even with a few grey hairs, he still looks much younger than someone born in 1968: http://www.contactmusic.com/photo/billy-boyd-the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey---uk-premiere---arrivals_5966892.
* [[http://hammerax.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Terry-Bozzio-Hammerax.jpg Terry Bozzio]] (on the right), longtime drummer for Music/FrankZappa and co-founder of Missing Persons, is '''61''' -- ten years older than the also pictured John Stannard, president of Hammerax. This picture doesn't really do him justice, though - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT_8YrrGXjE he must be seen in action.]]
* [[http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwiki/79/Osaka07_Opening_Sarah_Brightman.jpg Sarah Brightman]] is 51. She looks 40 at best.
* At 60 (as of 2014), [[http://www.hawtcelebs.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/christie-brinkley-in-people-magazine-february-2014-issue_4.jpg Christie Brinkley]] looks better than most 40 year olds.
* [[http://www.google.com.ar/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&docid=Tx-zVaShcf8oFM&tbnid=PrX9nZEQO7FoiM:&ved=0CAUQjBwwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmissionengineering.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F05%2FChris-Broderick1.jpg&ei=lP01UtWUJYL48gTVtICYCQ&psig=AFQjCNFKSCC4DK3wvPcV-umNBG-YoICJWw&ust=1379356436662389 Chris Broderick]], Music/{{Megadeth}}'s former lead and rhythm gitarrist, is 44 but looks like he's in his late 20's, at most.
* [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2438596/50-year-old-man-asked-ID-Morrisons-supermarket-prove-hes-18-buying-alcohol.html Charles Brown]], a 50 year old father of three, was asked to show ID before being able to purchase whiskey because the cashier didn't think he was older than 25.[[note]] In the UK, you are not required to show ID to buy alcohol unless the seller suspects you are under 18 (the legal age to purchase) unlike the USA where everyone is carded. Most stores operate a "Challenge 25" policy - if you look around 25 or younger the seller will ask for ID just to be sure.[[/note]]
* Daniel Bruhl certainly counts his character in ''[[Film/InglouriousBasterds Inglourious Basterds]]'' [[http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Inglourious-Basterds.html is in his late teens/early twenties]]; Bruhl was 29 at the time of filming. Even at 37, he looks like he could pass for someone in his early thirties, if not younger.
* Sandra Bullock is 50 years old now but she looks at most to be in her mid 30s.
* As mentioned above, Creator/SteveBuscemi managed to pass as a 20-something metalhead when he was 36. Today, he's 54 but he looks like he's in his 40s.
* As Glinda in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', Billie Burke looks like she was in her 30s. She was actually 54 at the time.
* Most would hardly ever guess that UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush is actually a few weeks older than UsefulNotes/BillClinton.
* Rose Byrne is 32 but still looks to be in her 20's.
* Actress Dyan Cannon is 75 but she looks to be in her late 30's - early 40's, apparently she's had a lot of plastic surgery.
* Creator/MichaelCaine is 81, but looks barely any older than he did when filming ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' in the late nineties. He was in his late fifties then, but could have passed for sixties.
* Music/MariahCarey is 43 but looks like she's in her early-30's at most.
* Retired [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball NFL]] official Mike Carey (who was named the rules expert for Creator/{{CBS}}' newly acquired Thursday night NFL coverage in 2014) did not look anything like an official in his 60s; as this exchange with Brett Favre (born in 1969) showed:
-->'''Brett Favre''': I'm probably older than you. (Mike Carey grins) Close? (Carey grins) How old are you?
-->'''Mike Carey''': 61.
-->'''Favre''': YOU'RE NOT 61!!! Are you really??? Wow.... 61... you look great! What happened to ME?
* Phoebe Cates hasn't aged ''at all'' since ''DropDeadFred''. She looks like she could be younger than [[http://www.americansuperstarmag.com/sites/default/files/images/phoebe-cates-071710.jpg her own daughter]]. And she was 31 when she had her!
* [[http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Tom+Cavanagh+NBC+Entertainment+Cinema+Society+8bTP9OJ9Hp9l.jpg Tom Cavanagh]] (Ed, The Flash 2014) is 51 but could quite easily pass for early 40s.
* James Caviezel, well into his 40s, looks like he's in his late 20s.
* Creator/LeslieCheung just didn't look like he aged. Not even after [[http://oi43.tinypic.com/iqhdkx.jpg twenty years]]... [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0jhkdzK1j1rpgxgqo1_500.jpg Leslie at age 46!]]
* JohnCho is 41 yet can still convincingly play twentysomethings.
* Creator/GregCipes just turned 32? Are you serious?
* Creator/DickClark, up until his stroke in 2004, looked no older than 45 years old... at 75. There's a reason he was called "America's Oldest Teenager".
* Creator/JackieChan was born in 1954, but nowadays, he looks like he's in his late 30's.
* Michael Paul Chan (''Series/TheCloser'') looks no older than 45, despite being 61.
* Julie Christie (here in an interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnsWt0rl6ag) is 61 but looks a well-preserved early 40s.
* There's a reason people think Creator/StephenColbert is a Time Lord. He looks exactly the same now as he did in Series/StrangersWithCandy TEN YEARS AGO.
* Gary Coleman had an autoimmune kidney disease, which, combined with the medications used to treat it, limited his growth to 4 ft 8 in, and his face retained a childlike appearance well into adulthood.
* Monique Coleman (Taylor of ''High School Musical'') is in her early thirties as of 2011. She got away with playing a teenager while in her mid/late twenties. It didn't help that she was the oldest of the main cast.
* Creator/ChrisColfer is 22 but could pass for quite a bit younger.
* Music/PhilCollins is 64 but looks a decade younger. Additionally, unlike most singers who undergo VocalDecay as they age, his singing voice sounds '''''exactly''''' the same as it did in his prime.
* Creator/SeanConnery looks old, no denying that, but he simply hasn't changed a bit from the day they shot ''Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade''...and it was twenty-three years ago! [[http://www.dula.tv/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/sean-connery-max-level-400x310.jpg See for yourself]]. At 58, he was 17 years younger than the character's implied age, and only 12 years older than Harrison Ford. In case you think it's because the production crew went to great efforts to make him look much older than he really was, take a look at him as Marko Ramius in ''The Hunt for Red October'', which came out the next year. Apart from the hairpiece, he looks just the same!
** "One you reach Max Level, you stop leveling"
* Creator/KevinConroy looks pretty good for a guy who's almost sixty.
* Music/AliceCooper was born in February 1948, but he looks like he's in his late 40s. Although, truthfully, he never really looked young. This video is from 1971. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z7I022m5GI&feature=fvwrel , and another from 1986. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yZmOpafga0&feature=related Do you see much difference?
* Anderson Cooper (born in 1967), despite the white hair, looks like he could be in his 20's.
* MirandaCosgrove is 22, but could pass for a 9th, or even ''8th'' grader if she tried.
* NBC Sports host [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0182471/ Bob Costas]] looks to be in his mid-forties even in his early sixties.
* [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0183960/ Stephanie Courtney]], who plays Flo in the Progressive Insurance commercials is 42?!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLDEOgKCxuY Professor Brian Cox]] is a 40-something physics professor who looks like a 20-something model.
* Terry Crews is 45 and looks more like 35.
* Creator/TomCruise is 51 but could easily pass for a man of about 35.
* Creator/BenedictCumberbatch is 36, but can still easily pass for mid-twenties. He is so ethereal and unusual looking that he skews any attempt to classify his age in comparison to more normal appearances. During the UK premiere of Literature/WarHorse, he asked how old a reporter was because he thought he was about his age. The reporter replied that he was 27, and said Cumberbatch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2WxX7WH7aU looked even younger than he did]].
* Singer and actress/voice actress Elizabeth Daily is 50 but she looks like she's in her late 20's-early 30's.
* Creator/MattDamon and Josh Brolin are in their early 40s but anybody who saw them in Creator/TheCoenBrothers' ''TrueGrit'' (or anything else for that matter) could be forgiven for thinking they're about ten-fifteen years younger.
* [[Music/TheWho Roger Daltrey]] turned ''71'' in March 2015. [[http://www.wikinoticia.com/images/cucharasonica/cdn.cucharasonica.com.files.2011.01.daltrey-the-who.jpg This guy]] is pushing ''70''?
* [[http://www.mediasinfo.ro/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/corina-danila.jpg Corina]] [[http://www.libertatea.ro/typo3temp/pics/Corina_DanilaZL1_28_06a9961190.jpg Danila]], Romanian actress and voice actress in ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', is 41. Her figure has never changed since 1994.
* Stacey Dash is 46 and looks 26. She was 28 when she first played Dionne in ''Clueless''.
* Amy Davidson played the younger sister on ''Series/EightSimpleRules'' despite being six years older then her co-star Kaley Cuoco (who played the older sister). This is an example of this trope crossed with TeensAreShort.
* Elizabeth Shue looks maybe five years older in 2015 than she did when she played the lead in ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting''. She was 24 then, playing 17 but looking about 30. Now she's 51 but looks about 35.
* Ellen [=DeGeneres=] will be 58 years old in January 2016 and looks 20 years younger. Veganism and happiness are probably contributing factors.
* Creator/JohnnyDepp was born in 1963, but looks like he's in his early 30's.
* Music/{{Helloween}} vocalist Andi Deris [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/90/2011-08_Woodstock_54.jpg looks far younger]] than 48.
* Creator/ZooeyDeschanel is 32, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ3cTwI9bIw&feature=related can convincingly portray a teenage schoolgirl.]]
* Creator/VinDiesel is in his mid-40s but looks at least a decade younger (his bald look certainly helps), especially noticeable in the ''FastAndFurious'' films, his co-star PaulWalker noticeably ages whereas Vin looks almost exactly the same in the fourth and fifth films as he did in the first one.
* [[http://www.khanhdoan.com/ Khanh Doan]], age 35, looks late teen-ish. Then again, she's Asian.
* Nina Dobrev is 24, but could easily pass for a 16-18 teenager.
* [[Creator/AntAndDec Declan Donnelly]] once revealed in a magazine interview that he was commonly mistaken for being underage by bartenders while in his mid to late twenties. He's now 34 and the effect is less pronounced, but he still looks quite young for his age.
* Creator/RobertDowneyJr looks surprisingly good for his age, given his years of drug abuse and rough living. In ''Film/IronMan'', he's in his mid forties and could pass for about ten years younger. This is especially odd as he was in ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' a few years prior and looked like he was pushing forty.
** [[http://gifs.1000notes.com/post/25327561688 Take a look at these pictures of him from the film ''One Night Stand.'']] He was 32.
* Fran Drescher is in her 50s, but at most she looks like she's in her 40s.
* [[http://bravewords-public.s3.amazonaws.com/images/p17p0qdmnspgeusd1hm1r9s3hp4.jpg Shawn Drover]], [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Music/Megadeth?from=Main.Megadeth Megadeth's]] current drummer, looks like he is in his late 30's... he's 47.
* It can sometimes be [[http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/popcrush.com/files/2014/01/HilaryDuff1.jpg hard to tell]] that ex-DisneyChannel star Music/HilaryDuff is (as of June 2013) 25 with a child and separated husband.
* Creator/KirstenDunst looks hardly any older at the age of 30 than she did when she was a teen star in the late 90s. Go on, look at this - [[http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/Kirsten+Dunst+Cannes+2011+Melancholia+Photocall+eHuncQHWI1Rl.jpg does this look like the face of a woman who's less than a year away from her 30s]]?.
* British actress Holly Earl was born in 1992 but thanks, to her petite build and height of 5'0", looks much younger; [[DawsonCasting playing two characters aged fourteen]] (in episodes of Series/{{Skins}} and [[Recap/DoctorWho2011CSTheDoctorTheWidowAndTheWardrobe Doctor Who]]) in late 2011/early 2012.
* Jason Earles, aka [[Series/HannahMontana Jackson]], is in his 30s and married. In the first season of ''Hannah Montana'', he was ''29'', playing a 15-year old character who looked that age. In the MadeForTVMovie ''Dadnapped'' he looks ridiculous trying to play a character who is likely his own age named Merv. The fact that the primary audience for this movie are people who know him as Jackson from "Hannah Montana" makes it even less believable.
** He lampshaded this during his interview with Creator/JimmyFallon, that when he takes his wife to dinner fans of the show would go to his wife and say "You must be so proud of your son". Awkward!
** To really drive the point home, watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vbr3O5UaKPI this guest appearance]] by Wrestling/JohnCena on ''Hannah.'' As you're watching it, let it sink in that '''they're both the same age!'''
* [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie Barbara Eden]]: During her visit to Vienna [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/52/Life_Ball_2013_-_magenta_carpet_Barbara_Eden_01.jpg in late May 2013]], she briefly put on [[http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1158460/thumbs/o-I-DREAM-OF-JEANNIE-COSTUME-570.jpg her iconic harem costume]]. She still looks gorgeous at 78.
* ZacEfron (from ''HighSchoolMusical'') is in his 20s, but looks teenage. He said it best in his monologue to his tween girl fans on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'': "If it weren't for you, I'd be some random college student, instead of a college-aged man pretending to be a high schooler." And when he was 14, playing young Simon in a flashback on ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' (yes, that's him), he looked like he was about 12.
* [[Music/CattleDecapitation Josh Elmore]] is in his late thirties, but looks like he's in his early to mid-twenties.
* Creator/MichaelEmerson was born in 1954 but looks like he's in his early 40s at the most. He was already 51 when he started playing Ben on ''Series/{{Lost}}'', but doesn't look a day older than the rest of the cast who are about 10 to 15 years younger. Especially impressive in his scenes with Evangeline Lilly. He looks at most a few years older but is actually twenty-five years older than her.
* Actor Robert Englund, famous for playing horror icon Freddy Krueger, is currently ''66''. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/47/Robert_englund.jpg Look at this picture.]] That is him ''now''. He looks like he's in his early-to-mid-40's at least, and early 50's at most.
* Lead singer of ''MindlessSelfIndulgence'', Jimmy Urine (actual name James Euringer) looks like he's at least in his early-to-mid 20's, but he's actually in his 40's. Doesn't stop the fact that he has a massive amount of fangirls.
* Creator/AnnaFaris is in her mid-30s, but she looks at least 10 years younger.
* Terry Farrell. [[http://www.treknews.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/stlv-2011-terry-farrell.jpg She]] is almost ''fifty''! (Bonus points to her for aging so gracefully that she doesn't even deem it necessary to dye her hair. Grey streaks? � Who cares!)
* Creator/NoelFielding is 37 but looks about 25 and acts like a child.
* Numerous actors and actresses (almost anyone named in DawsonCasting counts, even if most of them don't quite look as young as their characters), but Creator/IslaFisher[[note]]also known as the wife of Creator/SachaBaronCohen[[/note]] stands out as someone who easily looks ten years younger than her real age.
* Creator/JodieFoster, born in November 1962, looks like she's in her early 30s.
* Until very recently, original Ultravox lead singer John Foxx did not look his age. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bL6rcCdx8KA In this video]], he's all of 33 (since the single was released in 1980 and he was born in 1947), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyKmuQe0siQ in this 1998 VH1 Europe interview]] he certainly doesn't look fifty-one.
* Though you hear his voice more than you see his face, voice actor Creator/CrispinFreeman totally qualifies. He's 39 as of this writing but looks like he's early- to mid-twenties... just one of many reasons the fangirls love him.
** According to Freeman himself, this is actually why he moved on to voice acting from theater: his voice and appearance are mismatched, limiting the roles he could take on stage.
* There's an entire genre of international porn based on barely-legal girls who appear illegally underage. Obviously, this can get people into messy legal trouble. Columbian-born [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lupe_Fuentes Lupe Fuentes]] gained international notoriety when her porn videos very nearly got a Puerto Rican man sentenced to ''20 years'' for possessing child porn. What made the case notable was that it absolutely embarrassed the over-zealous prosecutor who, despite easily available proof online and on-file with the US Federal Government that Lupe Fuentes was indeed already of age, she stubbornly insisted that the actress couldn't possibly be older than 13-14, based on the sworn testimony of several expert witnesses who relied on the Tanner Scale. The defendant was overruled in the presentation of proof-of-age evidence and was only saved when Lupe Fuentes actually travelled from her then-residence in Colombia to personally appear in court with documentation to prove that she was indeed already 19 years old when said videos were made.
* Robert Flynn of Music/MachineHead, at 43, looked like he was in his late 20's at most. [[http://www4.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Kerrang+Awards+Arrivals+di96b2ARqqql.jpg Here's proof.]]
** During the last year, however, he aged quite a bit. He now looks about 44 (his current age). [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/2b/RobbFlynn2012.jpg/398px-RobbFlynn2012.jpg]]
* [[http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Jane-Fonda-In-Vera-Wang-2014-AFI-Life-Achievement-Award-A-Tribute-to-Jane-Fonda.jpg Jane Fonda]] is 76 years old as of 2014. She still looks like she's in her forties.
* Michael J. Fox is 54, but often looks at least 20 years younger. His voice doesn't really help, either; would you believe he was in his 40s when he voiced Stuart Little?
** Not to mention that he ''effortlessly'' passed as a seventeen-year-old in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' - [[DawsonCasting he was twenty-three at the time (twenty-eight in the sequels, too!)]].
** Seconded on his voice. This year he reprised his role as Marty in ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions'', not only in the main story, but also in a level pack retelling the events of the movie. '''He sounds exactly the same.'''
* Everybody remembers Creator/HarrisonFord as Han Solo... or at least, most females do. He was nearly forty during ''Franchise/StarWars''.
* [[Franchise/PowerRangers Power Rangers']] [[Creator/JasonDavidFrank Jason David Frank]] was 29 during the filming of Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder, but he didn't look like he aged too much since his previous seasons as Tommy and he was in his early twenties back then (well, 19 as the Green Ranger). This was pointed out in the first episode when Cassidy asked if Tommy was really old enough to be a teacher. He responds by saying, 'I can assure you, I'm old enough.' Today, he's 43 and looks like he's in his 30s.
* Creator/EdwardFurlong was 14 years old playing 10-year old John Connor in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', and 21 playing a 16-year old in ''Film/AmericanHistoryX''. Even in his 30's he still has quite a youthful demeanor and high-pitched voice.
* Neil Gaiman is 52 but looks like he is in his mid-forties at the most.
* Johnny Galecki (who plays Leonard on ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'') will turn 40 in April 2015 and like JimParsons, looks at least a decade younger.
* [[Music/DyingFetus John Gallagher]] is in his early forties, yet still looks more or less the same as he did back around 2000.
* Creator/AndrewGarfield. He's 31, yet looks as though he's about 18, which made him one of the semi-rare [[JustifiedTrope justified]] examples of DawsonCasting when he played Peter Parker in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan''.
* Jennie Garth is 41 but looks young for her age. Dress her up as her 90210 character Kelly and she'd still look like a teenager. Ironically, she was one of the few 90210 actors that actually ''were'' teens when the show began.
* When Bill Gates was around his twenties, he was often mistaken for being a teen. Even in his late 50s, he could still pass for early-to-mid 40's. However, [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/19/Bill_Gates_June_2015.jpg this picture]], taken in June 2015 when he was four months shy of 60, shows him finally starting to look closer to his actual age.
* Brian Geraghty is 38 yet can easily pass as early 20's, and is often cast as the rookie soldier in movies like ''TheHurtLocker'' or ''Jarhead'', and most recently ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'' though there his seeming youth is intentional and pretends to be a rookie cop while in fact being on first-name basis with Edgar J. Hoover and having been in military intelligence during WW1.
* Creator/SarahMichelleGellar was 19, nearly 20 in fact, when ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' premiered. She was baby-faced enough to look astonishingly convincing as a 16-year-old. She's now 35, and has only ''just'' begun looking like she's not a twentysomething.
* Creator/SummerGlau is another Whedon favourite whose small size, slender build, and delicate, childish features let her convincingly play characters who are supposed to be a good ten years younger than her actual age. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/27/Summer_Glau_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg Here's]] a picture of her from November 2012; she's 31 years old and still looks like she's in her late teens or early twenties. In [[{{Series/Firefly}} The R. Tam Sessions]], a then-23-year-old Summer managed to convincingly play a ''14-year old girl''.
* Joshua Gomez, best known for playing Morgan Grimes in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'', is 36 years old, but looks like he is in his mid 20's. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/Morgan_Grimes.png Here's Proof.]]
* Creator/SelenaGomez, which can lead to some Squick-ish tendencies as [[http://www.movie-dvd-copy.com/images/dvds/another-cinderella-story.jpg this]] cover for ''Another Cinderella Story'' shows (Selena is 15 at this time, her love interest is played by a 25-year old, and Selena looks younger than she is.)
* Kim Gordon of SonicYouth is 60, but looks far younger. The picture on the link was taken when she was 59. [[http://www.elle.com/pop-culture/celebrities/kim-gordon-sonic-youth-profile]]
* Lucas Grabeel is 30, but looks more like early 20s.
* Creator/HeatherGraham is 42. In ''TheHangover'', she played a role originally written for LindsayLohan, who's ''sixteen years younger than her''.
* Music/ArianaGrande is in her early twenties and still looks like a teenager due to her short height.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBbG2tSDfOo Brooke Greenberg]] had an unknown medical condition that prevented her from aging. She was really 20 years old when she died, but she still possessed the body of an infant and the mental capacity of a toddler.
* Music/{{Radiohead}}'s lead guitarist, [[http://www.basca.org.uk/public/images/JonnyGreenwood.jpg Jonny Greenwood]]. He is in his forties, and aside from having shorter hair now, he doesn't look a day older than he did [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l1o6mmTDBy1qbqb1do1_500.jpg in 1994]].
* Creator/SethGreen was born in 1974, but looks, acts, and dresses like he is in his later teenage years to early twenties. [[https://instagram.com/p/6-TfdDg2S5/ This is him at age 41.]]
* Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy. [[http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/227765_215947495101133_138018959560654_828696_4499773_n.jpg This is her on the cover of a 2011 magazine.]] She's '''37'''.
* Music/JoshGroban is 33, yet he looks to be roughly college-aged.
* [[http://rocknewsdesk.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/n1306halford.jpg Rob Halford]], lead singer of Music/JudasPriest, is 63 but hasn't really aged a day in the last decade.
* Daryl Hall (b. 1946) and John Oates (b. 1949) of ''Hall & Oates'', pictured [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2a/Hall_%26_Oates.jpg here]] in 2008. Seriously, they look better than most people half their age. Plastic surgery helps.
* Another ''Buffy'' alumna, Creator/AlysonHannigan, was 22 when she took the part of 16-year-old Willow, and 29 when the series ended. Not that you'd have known it, looking at her. Now that she's on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', she often plays her character's college or high school self in flashbacks, where she doesn't look out of place in a classroom full of actual teenagers. [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/5949a2a61679f539c32567083ba71d85/tumblr_mg9tsaNL3B1s2evico4_1280.jpg This is a recent photo of her at 38 years old]] (she's the taller one).
* Singer and Actress Leisha Hailey was born in 1971 but still looks like she is in her mid to late twenties.
* Chris Hardwick, who you may know from Podcast/NerdistPodcast, is forty-three at the time of writing but looks like he's in his mid to late twenties. It probably helps that he lost a lot of weight and quit drinking; earlier in life, he looked considerably older as a result.
* Tony Harnell of TNT. Nearing 50, looks mid twenties to early thirties.
* Bob Harper, one of the trainers on ''Series/TheBiggestLoser'', is 45.
* Creator/LauraElenaHarring is 48, and looks almost young enough to be her own daughter.
* G. Hannelius looks 11 at most, and plays a 6th grader and DogWithABlog despite being old enough to be a high school freshman. She's nearly 15.
* Melissa Joan Hart is starting to look older now, but [[DawsonCasting she played teenage roles for a while]].
* Creator/DanielleHarris playing the 18-year old Annie Brackett in the ''Film/{{Halloween 2007}}'' remake when she was thirty. She's about to turn thirty-five and she could still pass off as someone in high school.
* Debbie Harry was 30 when Music/{{Blondie}} started in 1975, but looked around 10 years younger. Throughout the 80s she still looked good. She is 68 now and whilst looks noticeably older, is still going.
* Popular professional skater Tony Hawk looks as though he's in his 20s, but was actually born in 1968.
* Creator/JohnHawkes looks far younger than someone born in 1959 should. In ''Series/{{Deadwood}}'', he looks about the same age or younger than Timothy Olyphant despite being nearly a decade older than him.
* Goldie Hawn is currently 67, she looks like she's in her 30's or 40's.
* Creator/SalmaHayek, 45, looks like she's in her 20s.
* Music/HunterHayes is in his early 20s, but still looks like mid-teens.
* [[http://www.berlinale.de/media/bilder/2013/boulevard_2013/11_2_/110213_PH_3007_IMG_FIX_1200x800.jpg Holly Hunter]] was born in 1958. She looks about 35 in most of her roles.
* Doug Hutchison played Percy Wetmore in ''Film/TheGreenMile''. Percy is supposed to be 21; Hutchison was ''39'' years old at the time. He told Frank Darabont that he was in his early/mid 30s. When he went to audition for ''Film/TheSaltonSea'', the director told him he was 'too young', resulting in Hutchison having to show him his drivers license which proved his age. He's now in his fifties but still looks like he's maximum in his 30s if not younger. All of this events seems to be even more interesting if we remember that his character in ''Series/TheXFiles'', the first MonsterOfTheWeek Eugene Victor Toomes was [[ActorAllusion a mutant without aging process]] who looked absolutely the same in 1930s, 1960s and [[TheNineties 1990s]] thanks to eating human livers ripped off alive. Hutchison married model Courtney Stodden when he was 51 and she was 16. If that doesn't {{Squick}} you out, consider that because she's an example of YoungerThanTheyLook, they actually look like an age-appropriate couple!
* At the time of his death, Isaac Hayes was 65 years old, yet hardly looked different then he did in the 70s when he was in his twenties.
* [[Series/TheBradyBunch Florence Henderson]]
* Shirley Henderson was 35 when she first played the eternally 13-year old ghost Moaning Myrtle in ''Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets''.
* James Hetfield of Music/{{Metallica}} doesn't look a day over 30, even though he's really 50.
** During the 1990s, his beard made him look older than he really was (especially during the Load years).
* Actress and voice actress Dana Hill looked like a teenager for most of her adult life. She suffered from Type 1 diabetes which prevented her from growing past a certain age and it [[TearJerker tragically took her life]] at the age of 32.
* Overlapping with DudeLooksLikeALady: Hizaki, guitarist for Music/{{Versailles}}, is a 33-year-old man who can [[http://i47.tinypic.com/34xs4t5.jpg convincingly pass as a teenage girl]].
* Susanna Hoffs. [[http://chicago.timeout.com/articles/music/78398/matthew-sweet-and-susanna-hoffs-at-old-town-school-of-folk-music-concert-preview She's 50 in this picture]].
* Dexter Holland, Music/TheOffspring front man - the only thing about his appearance that has changed in the last 25 years is his hair style.
* Creator/KellyHu is 47 and looks 10-15 years younger. [[http://cdn56.fansshare.com/photos/kellyhu/kelly-hu-black-dress-la-premiere-valkyrie-kh-underclassmen-1791550610.jpg How many 47-year-old women look like this?]]
* Lead singer Hyde of Music/LArcEnCiel. In [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4emdd62NW1qcw4wjo1_1280.jpg this]] recent photo he is 43!
* One of the most common complaints, casting-wise, concerning ''Series/ModernFamily'' is the character of Haley Dunphy, who's supposed to be 16 at the start of the series but some say her character looks like "a tarted-up 12-year old." The actress portraying her, Sarah Hyland, is two years ''older'' than her. According to an interview in ''Nylon Magazine'', she was nearly rejected for the role on the grounds of being too old (she was 18 at the time), only for her manager to assure the casting director, "trust me, she does not look 18." There are even flame wars on her Website/IMDb page regarding her "real age."
* Koshi Inaba the vocalist of the famed J-Rock band, B'z is currently 47. [[http://www.saitoogata.com/ogata/photogallery/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/GQmobile1010-126.jpg This]] is one of his recent photos.
* From this [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1a/Jim_Inhofe%2C_official_photo_portrait%2C_2007.jpg official portrait]] (fairly recent; as it's from 2007) of Oklahoma Republican Senator Jim Inhofe. Inhofe is 79 years old but doesn't seem to look much older than 60.
* Creator/KikukoInoue often jokes about being 17. Even though she doesn't look 17, [[http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/voiceactors/2/21045.jpg she still looks very young for a woman in her 50's.]]
* Creator/HughJackman still looks very good for a man in his mid-forties (born in 1968). In ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'', his physique is just as impressive as it was when he made the first film ten years ago. Pretty fitting as Wolverine is over hundred years old and still fights like a man in his prime.
* Music/MichaelJackson, born 1958, really looked young and healthy while working on ''This Is It''. If you don't believe that: [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_2g66nvKFVk0/S6YPwcWTzEI/AAAAAAAAAII/WIjWJKWqOKw/s1600/orianthi_michael_orig_lr.jpg Take a look for yourself]] and you'll change your mind immediately!
* Creator/SamuelLJackson, born 1948, certainly does not look like someone who's 65 as of 2013. He looks a good 15 or 20 years younger than that. He wanted to be in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels because he was blown away watching the first movie in its original theatrical 1977 release when he was '''twenty-eight'''. In ''Film/TheAvengers'', you would certainly never think he is thirty to thirty-five years older than most of his castmates. Which is especially funny as his character, Nick Fury, took a drug which greatly slowed the aging process and who is still at peak condition.
* Who knew JAMProject's Masaaki Endoh, Hiroshi Kitadani and Masami Okui are in their 40's?
* Philip Jeanmarie, who played Max in ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', was around the same age as his castmates, being 24 during filming. Max is supposed to be in his late teens, and Philip looked the part. He's still barely aged and is now in his 30s!
* Music/CarlyRaeJepsen is 26. She usually looks about 12, although depending on the angle and lighting she sometimes [[YoungerThanTheyLook looks more like 35]].
* Music/BillyJoel is 66, and he does look kind of old, but that's only because of the hair. The face has stayed the exact same as it was 25 years ago.
* [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0440229/ Vincent Kartheiser]], of ''MadMen'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'', was born in 1979 but barely seems to have aged since the mid nineties when he was teen. Even then, he looked younger (Larry Clark asked to see his driver's license before hiring him for "Another Day In Paradise" as he didn't believe he was eighteen at the time).
* Jens Kidman of Music/{{Meshuggah}} is the oldest person in the band at age 49, but he looks about 10 years younger than that.
* Music/JoanJett absolutely counts. She was born in 1958 and looks the same age as people who were born when her first band formed.
** A picture taken in [[http://anchorshoppresents.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/joan_jett1.jpg 13 May 2013]]. Though, it is worth noting that [[http://static.tvgcdn.net/MediaBin/Galleries/Editorial/121022/1021_red_carpet/smallcrops/1021-red-carpet-joan-jett1sm.jpg other]] contemporary pictures can give a greater impression of age, she certainly doesn't look to be in her mid 50's.
* Aaron Johnson is 22 but could easily pass for a 15 or 16-year old. He's also a dad.
* Creator/AmyJoJohnson, another ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' alumnus, is in her forties, but looks half her age or even as young as her character Kimberly Anne Hart, the original Pink Ranger.
* Felicity Jones is 32, but she [[http://celebmafia.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/felicity-jones-ee-british-academy-awards-nominees-party-in-london.-feb.-2015_1.jpg looks to be in her early 20s at the oldest.]]
* Howard Jones of Devil You Know and formerly KillswitchEngage is 45, but looks like he's in his late 20s/early 30s.
* John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin looks like he's in his 40s, not his 60s [[http://media.blurt-online.com/40bk8wkEcuiG_m.jpg]]
* Milton Jones (British comedian) looks like he's in his late 30s. As of May 16th 2014, he is 50. This may have something to do with his deadpan style. Or his longish hair. [[https://www.google.com/search?q=milton+jones&newwindow=1&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=p9yKU7StLM-alQXWrIGYDQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg&biw=1440&bih=805#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=7-xyP4Y05Uj_rM%253A%3BF7T0ByqCos1q_M%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fmadeinbrighton.info%252Fwp-content%252Fuploads%252F2013%252F10%252FMiltonJones9.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fmadeinbrighton.info%252F2013%252F10%252F22%252Fmilton-jones-on-the-road%252F%3B1624%3B1721 This is him.]]
* Walter Jones, yet another ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' actor, aside from gaining a tiny bit of weight, hasn't aged ''at all'' since he was on the show at age 22. He's now ''44''.
* UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan turns 53 in February 2016, but he still looks pretty much the same as he did when he started in the NBA, and he was in his twenties back then.
* Kendra Kassebaum, especially for a pale-skinned blonde. At 39, she still looked early 20's-ish, [[DawsonCasting youthful enough to play Jovie]] in ''Film/{{Elf}}: The Musical''. She looks even younger than her 25 year-old castmate Jessica Skerritt (Deb).
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Europe_-_Building_Resilient_Institutions_Enda_Kenny_(8414763192).jpg This]] is Enda Kenny, [[UsefulNotes/PrimeMinistersOfIreland Taoiseach]] 2011-present, taken in 2013. He looks to be at most in his early 50s in that picture, right? Nope. When that photo was taken, he was 62--and Father of the Dail (longest-serving member of the legislature) at that.
* Heather Langenkamp is currently 50 but she doesn't look much older than when she played Nancy in the original ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'', during principal filming she was 19.
* Paul Landers, rhythm guitarist of Music/{{Rammstein}}, is in his late 40s, but could easily pass for someone in his early 30s. [[http://www.gettyimages.nl/detail/nieuwsfoto%27s/paul-landers-of-german-hard-rock-group-rammstein-nieuwsfotos/132875943 This what he looked like at age 45.]]
* Music/AvrilLavigne is 28, but looks and acts at most 18.
* Bianca Lawson has been playing teenagers since she was one -- in 1994. [[http://prettylittleliars.alloyentertainment.com/happy-birthday-bianca-lawson-facts-pictures/#2 This is her latest turn from last year.]]
* Creator/NigellaLawson was 44 when [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nigella_Lawson_booksigning.jpg this picture]] has been taken, in 2004. [[http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Nigella+Lawson+Nigella+Lawson+Promotes+New+HKPf7zGrZIvl.jpg This]] is a picture from March 2011. She looks even ''better''.
* Music/DuranDuran lead singer Simon Le Bon is in his late 50s and yet he looks like he could pass for someone in their late 30s, which is nuts since he actually looks younger with facial hair.
* Creator/DenisLeary hasn't aged noticeably in about twenty years; particularly amazing considering he's a 54-year old Irish chain smoker.
* Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh is '''''50'''''! Look at her page picture, that's ''recent''.
* Lemmy of Music/{{Motorhead}}. Until shortly before his death from cancer at age 70 near the end of 2015, he looked like he could easily be in his mid to late 40's. This was despite his almost complete lack of healthy eating habits and constant alcohol problem. While his health was starting to deteriorate in his later years, his physical appearances said otherwise.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jared_Leto_Soho.jpg Jared Leto]] is 43. There has to be [[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray a picture]] hidden in his attic.
* Joseph Gordon Levitt is now 30 but still has the same youthful face he had on ''3rd Rock From The Sun''.
* [[Music/{{Namgar}} Namgar Lhasaranova]] [[http://iplayer.fm/artist_images/28/66263.jpg looks to be somewhere in her thirties]], but her son is twenty, and she claims to have been already singing back in the 1980s. As with many other things about Namgar, her age remains an enigma.
* Thure Lindhardt is 38. As you can see, [[http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/ResNFNoKmT1/2013+Film+Independent+Spirit+Awards+Arrivals/bx0-kW4-erL/Thure+Lindhardt he really doesn't look it]].
* Ray Liotta. He was on record saying, "It's the oily skin. It gives you zits when you are a teenager, but then it doesn't wrinkle as you get older."
* James Lipton may not be the youngest man around, but he certainly doesn't look [[http://www.zimbio.com/photos/James+Lipton/2011+Riverkeeper+Fishermen+Ball/fXIR7JjWWVm 86]].
* Heather Locklear is 51, but looks 10 years younger.
* Alison Lohman could pass off as a teenager, if the dinner party scene in ''Film/DragMeToHell'' and ''Big Fish'' are anything to go by. Her character makes use of this in ''Matchstick Men''--the actress was 22 playing a girl of about 14/15.
* [[Music/{{Origin}} John Longstreth]] is pushing forty, but still looks like he's in his mid-twenties.
* JenniferLopez is in her 40s, but she looks at least 10-15 years younger.
* [[http://images.bwwstatic.com/upload5/226003/tn-500_luponewm17085126518166.jpg Patti LuPone]] as the forty-something Joanne in the 2011 New York Philharmonic production of ''{{Theatre/Company}}'', which was a week or two before her 62nd birthday.
* [[TheKarateKid Ralph Macchio]]. He was 23 when the original Karate Kid was shot, but looked around 15, and now he is 51, but looks like he's just a bit older than '''half that age'''.
** Even weirder, ''his voice hadn't even changed yet when the Karate Kid was shot!''
* When [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/MacArthur_Manila.jpg this picture]] was taken, General UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur was 65 years old and already seasoned by three wars. [[http://ww2db.com/image.php?image_id=3804 This]] is [[BadassGrandpa him at 70]] standing next to General Omar Bradley, who was 13 years younger. At the first glance, people would say the reverse was true.
* Andie [=MacDowell=] was born in 1958 but looks more like she was born in 1988. [[SincerityMode Seriously.]] She not only looks young for her age, but looked young for her age in ''Film/GroundhogDay'' and hasn't aged one bit. She's 55 as of 2013 and could be convincingly [[DawsonCasting cast as a teenager or college student]] and look more convincing than some 20-somethings who play teenagers.
* Gabriel Mann (Nolan from "Revenge") is 40
* Music/MarilynManson managed to be this until [=2009ish=], looking like [[http://www.thesparklingwiggles.com/images/manson.jpg this]] at age 37. And then he managed to beat decades of anorexia and proceeded [[http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/29564887/Marilyn+Manson++2009.jpg to gain an extra chin]]. Thankfully, he's starting to regress in age again, playing '''[[http://twitchfilm.com/assets_c/2013/01/wrong_cops_Marilyn_Manson_01-thumb-630xauto-36439.jpeg a teenager]]''' at the age of 43, and looking like he's in his [=mid-20s=] while doing so.
* Shirley Manson of {{Music/Garbage}} is 46 and looks around 30 - [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/2012/01/shirley_manson.jpg]]
* [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/63/Buffy_2x03.jpg This]] is Creator/JamesMarsters in his first appearance as Spike on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', already fitting this trope at age 34. ''[[http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMjg5NzM1OTMwOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDg4NDkzMQ@@._V1._SY314_CR18,0,214,314.jpg This]]'' is James Marsters at his present age of '''50'''.
* Stephanie March is 40, but doesn't look a day older than when she first appeared in Law and Order: SVU at the age of 26.
* Music/BrunoMars is turning 30 in 2015, but looks teenaged or in his early 20s at most.
* Creator/DemetriMartin was born in 1973, making him 40 in 2013. In his early 30s, he was brought on ''Series/TheDailyShow'' to host a recurring segment about America's youth culture.
* [[http://jessicaerinmartin.com/ Jessica Erin Martin]], famous for voicing Samus Aran in the [[MetroidOtherM most recent]] ''{{Metroid}}'' game, is about mid-20's, but looks 14-15, although she somehow was deemed "too old" when she auditioned to play an 18-year old role.
* Steve Martin's white hair has given him a noticeably ageless look. He looks like he could be a lot younger than 68.
* Chris Matthews of MSNBC appears to be in his early 40s but is [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4b/Chris_Matthews_and_Kathleen_Matthews_2010_Time.jpg 64]].
* Lauren Mayberry of {{Music/CHVRCHES}} is 26 but could very well pass as a girl in its [[http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/500/87875663/Lauren%2BMayberry%2BLaurenMayberry011.png mid-]] [[http://www.metalsucks.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Lauren-Mayberry.jpg to late]] [[http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/webimage/1.3148378.1382094669!/image/4102429184.jpg_gen/derivatives/articleImgDeriv_628px/4102429184.jpg teens]].
* Creator/JamesMcAvoy appears a few years younger than his actual age. [[http://www.dyrt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/jm.jpg This picture]] was taken in 2013 where he looks like he's in his mid-twenties (he was 34 at the time). [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/ce1f78f03c36fc09d1abf85a20c22472/tumblr_nbmykajvth1qd4yhbo1_1280.jpg This collage]] also demonstrates that his face has hardly changed over an eleven-year period.
* Jack [=McBrayer=] of ''30Rock'' is 38 but doesn't look past his mid-twenties. His character Kenneth is implied to be about 350 years old.
* PaulMcCartney is 73 (born in June 1942) but doesn't look older than mid fifties.
* If you can get past [[BoobsOfSteel her rack]] JennetteMcCurdy, 22 as of 2014, still looks like a teenager.
* Creator/PaulMcGann is fifty-four, but doesn't look much different than his 37-year-old stint as [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] in 1996.
* Music/RebaMcEntire looks ''way'' too young for 60. Early 40s, maybe.
* Danica [=McKellar=] once [[http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTI3NzI3NTQwMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwODk2MTkz._V1_SX640_SY720_.jpg looked about her age]], a month and a half short of 25 years old, toward the end of 1999. Her looks seem to have frozen in time since then. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-cazxAL_tU Here she is]] over 14 years later, hosting the first edition of a new Nerdist video series called ''Math Bites'', all the while looking like she hasn't aged a day.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_McPartlin Anthony McPartlin]], of the English comedy and television presenting duo Ant & Dec, with the other being Declan Donnelly, was born on November 15, 1975. This [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Anthony_McPartlin_%282009%29.jpg picture of him from 2009]] certainly does not make him look like he was 34 at the time, looking at least 10 years younger than that.
* Music/MeatLoaf is 67 and could easily pass for his mid-fifties at the latest.
* Idina Menzel. One look at [[http://images.uulyrics.com/cover/i/idina-menzel/album-i-stand.jpg this image]] and I think most would be shocked to know she's 42.
* Music/{{Eminem}} is 43. Even ''with'' his noticeable signs of aging, he could still pass for his 20s - keep in mind also that he spent most of the 2000s decade hooked on prescription drugs.
* Can anyone believe that voice actor VicMignogna is already 49 as of this writing?
* Reggie Miller's Hall-of-Fame NBA career mostly coincided with the NBA career of UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan (see above). In photos of them on the court during games between the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers with both of them side-by-side Reggie Miller always looked like an underweight and scrawny teenager because Michael Jordan is about an inch shorter, about 30-40 lbs heavier, and much more muscular.
* Creator/WentworthMiller is 41 but looks like early 30's.
* [[http://indianyouth.org/about-us/about-billy-mills This]] is Billy Mills (born June 30, 1938), a [[UsefulNotes/NativeAmericans Native American]] runner who in 1964 became the only American ever to win Olympic gold in the 10,000 meters. Even in the picture where he looks oldest (top right of the page), he still looks somewhere in his 50s. Farther down the page is a picture of him receiving an award from President Obama in 2012. Does this look like a man in his ''mid-70s''?
* [[TheAndyMilonakisShow Andy Milonakis]], born January 30, 1976, has a congenital growth hormone condition that makes him look and sound like a teenage boy, despite being '''37''' as of 2013. Here's a [[http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2095888640/nm1429102 picture of him from 2011]], on the set of {{Waiting}}.
* Music/KylieMinogue is '''47'''. [[http://i.imgur.com/vBHKH75.jpg Do you believe it?]]
* Creator/ElizabethMitchell is 42, but looks no older than 30, with some guesses as low as 22.
* [[http://www.odditycentral.com/pics/masako-mizutani-japans-lady-of-eternal-youth.html?utm_source=scribol.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=scribol.com Masako Mizutani.]] It's no wonder why they're calling her "Japanís Lady of Eternal Youth." She's a 43 year old mother of two but in the picture looks less than half that age.
* Creator/NanaMizuki is seriously in her mid-30's but looks younger and prettier with each year. [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/1isyXdnEwdw/maxresdefault.jpg She's at least 34 in this picture]] but easily looks about 16.
* Creator/DemiMoore is in her 50s now but looks at least 10 years younger.
* Creator/JulianneMoore is ''51'', and [[http://media.onsugar.com/files/2011/02/05/3/346/3463885/3082cd1fa241e97f_juliannemoore_talbots_spring2011_ad3.jpg hasn't aged noticeably]] [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/08/23/article-1305332-0AD863D4000005DC-253_306x420.jpg in almost twenty years]]. This is especially bizarre when you consider how white her skin is; skin that pale generally doesn't age well. Also, her face tends to emote very well in movies, which is ''really'' hell on your skin. The only possible explanation at this point is she's a vampire.
* Creator/RogerMoore was 45 when he was first cast as Film/JamesBond in the 70s. Moore is, in fact, 3 years older than Creator/SeanConnery, yet he looked much younger. That said, Moore started looking his age by the time his ''Bond'' tenure ended over a decade later.
* Throughout the 90s and early 00s, Thurston Moore from SonicYouth looked like he was in his early twenties while he actually was in his 30s and 40s, respectively. This applies to his bandmates as well, but then again, given the name of their band...
* Despite being born in 1953, Creator/RickMoranis [[http://i2.listal.com/image/196632/600full-rick-moranis.jpg looked like he never aged past the age of 26]]. Being 5'4'' in height helps. Nowadays, he's in his sixties, but in some pictures he would look no older than 45 like in [[http://www.listal.com/viewimage/6242765 this one]], and in others, [[ZigZaggingTrope he will actually look his age]].
* RageAgainstTheMachine guitarist Tom Morello is nearing 50 years old despite not looking older than his late thirties.
* Stephen Morris from NewOrder doesn't look like he's in his fifties.
* Creator/SentaMoses turned 40 in 2013, but can [[https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.551984341560975.1073741836.137687406324006&type=3 still reasonably pass for someone in her early 20's]].
* The former president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, is 82 and looks like he's in his fifties.
* Comedian Creator/JohnMulaney is 32, but looks around 10 years younger. His voice doesn't really sound younger though. He discusses this in his comedy special, saying that he looks like an extremely stressed out child.
* Frankie Muniz. He was 17 when he played Cody Banks, playing a 15-year old character who looked like he was twelve. He's now 27, and is ''just starting'' to look a bit less like a kid in his early teens.
* Creator/AudieMurphy's birthdate is [[MultipleChoicePast somewhat debated]], but it's generally agreed that he had earned all his combat medals by the time he was twenty, looking younger than that, and was probably at least twenty-five when he got his first lead role...as a teenaged delinquent in the b-movie ''Bad Boy''. He spent the next few years as TheTropeKid in various westerns, and then as a thirty-year-old, he played his wartime self moderately convincingly in ''To Hell And Back''. He moved away from late-teens characters after that, but continued to play naive, early-twenties characters fairly convincingly til about 1961, by which point he was in his mid-to-late thirties. He got considerably more weathered-looking after that, due to his outdoorsy lifestyle and the insomnia caused by his [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]].
* Creator/CillianMurphy. It is VERY hard to pin his age down. He's 36.
* Eddie Murphy just turned 52, but he still looks mostly the same as he did in his 20's.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttjh3TtO9Qk&feature=related In this video]] is actor Mitchel Musso, who is pranking one of his fans on a TV show. Watch the video and try to guess whether Mitchel or the fan is older. Done? Get this: Mitchel is ''20'', and the fan is only 15.
* Recurring Creator/CirqueDuSoleil contortionist Iuliia Mykhailova, at 27 going on 28, still looks like a 14-ish year old, suitable for playing the [[DawsonCasting teenage]] heroine Miranda in ''Amaluna'' (2012-2013).
* Dave Navarro of Music/JanesAddiction and Music/RedHotChiliPeppers doesn't seem to have aged at all in twenty years. He's now pushing 45 and looks in his early thirties at most. This is despite being a member of two of the hardest rocking bands of the last twenty years and having taking an extreme amount of narcotics.
* [[http://cdn1.btrstatic.com/pics/showpics/large/90578_M1roLdLk.jpg Ted Neeley]] is 72, but could easily pass for early or mid fifties. He also looked ridiculously young when he played the title role in Music/JesusChristSuperstar . Even with the facial hair he looked like he'd just come [[http://www.celestialhealing.com/blogimages/TedNeeleySuperstarJesus.jpg straight out of high school]].
* Creator/LiamNeeson looks like he's about 45, despite being 61.
* [[http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/Olivia+Newton+John+Celebs+Few+Best+Men+Premiere+kIhTsdVhMNql.jpg Olivia Newton-John]] turns 65 in 2013. She looks 40.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevie_Nicks#mediaviewer/File:Stevie_Nicks_-_In_Your_Dreams_Premiere_March_2013_(cropped).jpg Stevie Nicks]] is 66 years old, and only recently has looked like she's a day over 30. And this is despite past addictions to cocaine and prescription painkillers. Several UrbanFantasy novel protagonists have speculated that she must have Fae blood.
* Music/BrittNicole is 29, and her album covers made her look progressively more mature over time. Then her third album was re-released and the new cover makes her look younger than she did when first debuting... at 23.
* Creator/LeonardNimoy might be one of the most curious examples on this page: He actually used to look even older than his age... that is until he turned 82 and seemingly decided to ''reverse'' his aging process � but [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130131045160/memoryalpha/en/images/2/22/Leonard_Nimoy.jpg see for]][[http://latimesherocomplex.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/startrekintodarkness-premiere-leonard-nimoy1.jpg%3Fw%3D600 yourself]]. No "Trek Science" here, just the undeniable benefits of a full head of hair. Sadly, he didn't last much longer, as he passed away in February 2015 at 83.
* Takanori Nishikawa, aka TMRevolution: he is 5'3" and maintains the appearance of someone in their early 20's...but in reality he'll be '''40''' come September 2010. It's been said that he's so short because he didn't eat properly as a child. His youth despite his age is practically [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/280px-CLOUDNINETMRpromo_2114.jpg Bishounen level]].
* ChuckNorris looks like he's in his early 40s but he's 74. See [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/de/Chuck_Norris_200611292256.jpg this picture taken when he was 66]], or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKYlARdbU1o this commercial]] for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', shot when he was ''71''.
** [[MemeticBadass The Passage of Time just knows better than to defile the majesty that is Chuck Norris' face.]]
* Lee Norris was 22 when he started playing 16-year-old Mouth [=McFadden=] on ''Series/OneTreeHill'', and was the only person on the show who actually looked like a high school student despite being the same age as or a bit older than most of the other main cast members. Even after the TimeSkip when the characters are supposed to be the same age as their actors, he ''still'' looked like a teenager. Today, he's in his 30s and has hardly aged at all!
** Not nearly to the extent of Norris, but Chad Michael Murray, another ''One Tree Hill'' cast member, was in his early-to-mid-20's during his time on the show, and hasn't aged a whole lot since despite being 34 as of 2015.
* [[Creator/LupitaNyongO Lupita Nyong'o]] of ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave'' fame looks to be in her early 20's at the most. She's ''thirty-one.''
* Chris O'Donnell of ''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' fame is 42 but his face has hardly aged!
* Creator/MasiOka, being of Asian decent and only 5'6", counts as well, and seems to end up in a lot of DawsonCasting because of it (though his characters' age is rarely a plot point, when mentioned, it tends to be many years behind his own).
** He was 32 when he started playing [[{{Series/Heroes}} Hiro]], who, [[PlotHole depending on the episode]], was either 24 or 28. He actually looked his character's age more than his own.
** His character [[Series/{{HawaiiFive0}} Max]] hasn't been given a specified age, but we know his biomom was killed in the 80s, making it ''likely'' that he's intended to be younger than his actual actor's age (he certainly still looks in his [=mid/late-twenties=] despite pushing forty). [[http://westy5oh.wordpress.com/2013/11/03/h50-4-06-kupouli-la-broken/406-45/ His love interest]] is played by an actress ''more than a decade his junior'' and the couple are neither treated as nor look like a MayDecemberRomance.
** In ''Searching For Sonny'', he plays a 28-year-old despite being 37 at the time of filming. He also plays the 18-year-old version of his character in flashbacks, and a present-day photo is used as his high school graduation picture. Compared to [[http://www.snakkle.com/galleries/before-they-were-famous-stars-celebrity-cast-tv-show-hawaii-five-o-photos-then-and-now/masi-oka-yearbook-high-school-young-1992-hawaii-five-o-2011-photo-split/ his actual high school photo]], though, the greatest difference seems to be in ''[[GeekPhysiques pounds]]'' rather than years (though you could certainly make the argument that 18-year-old Oka could pass for eight or ten due to being so small).
* Adepero Oduye, star of ''Film/{{Pariah}}'', plays a 16-year old girl. She's ''33''. Her on-screen mom Kim Waynes (AKA The Wayans Sister) could count too, seeing as she's 50.
* Dave Padden from Annihilator is 36 but appears to be in his 20s.
* [[http://carriepaff.com/CarriePaff/Home.html Carrie Paff]] looks about 15-20 years younger than her actual age (late 30s/early 40's). Blondes don't usually age that well.
* Creator/HaydenPanettiere is likely to look like a teenager for a long time to come (she's 24). Being known for her [[TeensAreShort lack of height]] adds to this.
** Oddly, during her run on ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', when she was 18-19, some people thought she was [[YoungerThanTheyLook in her late 20's]]. This was even alluded to when she was a victim in a ''Series/{{Punkd}}'' prank when a teen boy's mom confronted her about dating him.
* Creator/EllenPage is 25, but she could easily pass off as a teenager (and does, in several of the films she's in).
* SarahPalin looks about 30, too young to be Bristol's mother, but turned ''50'' in February 2014.
* Jeffrey Parazzo (a.k.a. [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Trent Fernandez]]) was ''26'' when he was filming his parts as the White Ranger, though most bystanders would [[http://images.wikia.com/powerrangers/images/1/11/DT_Trent_Fernandez.jpg probably assume he was in his late teens.]] Even today, he's 34 but could still pass for his mid-to-late-twenties.
* Creator/LanaParrilla looks to have been frozen in time during her mid-twenties, and successfully plays a girl in her late teens ([[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/f6/46/38/f6463823db5a5676664bce7ab01d8fb0.jpg Young Regina]] on ''Series/OnceUponATime''). But even when she's not playing Regina's younger self -- well, does [[https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/476857008260276225/mA_6UEVc.png she look ]] ''37'' to you??
* Grace Park is ''41 years old'' as of March 2015... hard to believe, isn't it?
* Korean IdolSinger Sandara Park is pushing her ''thirties'', [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-0hZ5xblI9Ps/TzmZvxxTafI/AAAAAAAACEY/Fs_yz763gwg/s1600/sandara+park.jpg but looks]][[http://24.media.tumblr.com/4bf6c609c9a4cbbeb3b31c7adaeef4dc/tumblr_mh19wxpS4a1s33yqko1_500.png way younger]]. When she debuted as a member of GirlGroup [[Music/TwoNEOne 2NE1]], no one would have thought that she actually was 10 years older than then-''15 years old'' fellow group member Minzy, even because she tends to act and sound like a teenage girl on a sugar high.
* Creator/JimParsons was born in March 1973. He looks, at the most, maybe 25.
* [[http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article2233878.ece Alfie Patten]]. The story of a 13-year old being a father is unsettling enough, but when he looks like he's even YOUNGER than that... [[http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article2435283.ece But it turned out he isn't the father.]]
* The late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno until about 2007 looked no older than 50, despite being 80 at the time. But injuries from being very involved in practice (despite allegations of him being a powerless figurehead) have allowed for accidents to happen. After a myriad of injuries, he still didn't look 85, but instead closer to 70.
* Creator/AaronPaul is 34 at the moment, but he could still easily pass as being in his mid-twenties.
* Adrian Paul looks pretty good for a man in his early 50's. But then, he IS the Highlander... Here he is just before his 54th birthday - he looks around 40! [[http://www.starpulse.com/Actors/Paul,_Adrian/gallery/REE-000621/]]
* Does [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball Pelé]] look like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pele_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2006.jpg the guy in his SEVENTIES that he is]]?! [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pelé_África_do_Sul_2010_3.jpg Nope.]] Man's freaking [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk_AKrGCS2E aging ''backwards'']].
* Piper Perabo is almost 40, but looks and sounds like she's 16. It's not just that she looks like she could play a 16 year old; she legitimately looks like and has the voice of a high school junior. People often thought she was a teenager during the height of her career (late 90's/early 00's). She was born in 1976.
* Pinetop Perkins, the oldest person to win a Grammy, lived to be 97, but looked like he was in his mid-to-late-60s.
* Pauley Perrette is ''46''. The character she plays on ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' is [[DawsonCasting at least ten years younger]].
* Creator/BernadettePeters is 65 but could 100% pass for 30, younger with the right makeup. It's become an inside joke in the Broadway community that she does not age. Here's a recent photograph: [[http://images.starpulse.com/Photos/pv/Bernadette%20Peters-4.JPG]]
* Cassandra Peterson, better known as Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark, is 61 but looks at least twenty years younger. In the linked picture she's 59, but looks around half that age. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Cassandra_Peterson_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg]]
* [[http://media.englishrussia.com/new_images/redstarsmodel-7.jpg Russian model Olga Petrova]] is a mom who is 41, but looks a lot better than many women half that age.
* If you go to the Website/YouTube video of Kate Pierson and REM singing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we_bSR3wrgY Shiny Happy People]], you'll almost certainly see a commenter hitting on her. She was 42 when the video came out, and is currently 64. This [[http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/dwczCBJ4Ecs/2012+Winter+TCA+Tour+Day+1/EhTMz6B2S0b/Kate+Pierson]] picture was taken in 2012 and she looks twenty years younger than her actual age at least.
* [[http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Rene-Pinochet/ Rene Pinochet]], a Chilean voice actor (best known as [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]]), is in his mid-30's, yet he still looks and sounds like a child.
* BradPitt turned ''fifty'' in December 2013. When he appeared in ''Film/TheAssassinationOfJesseJamesByTheCowardRobertFord'', he was aged up by makeup even though Jesse James was ten years younger than Pitt was at the time, although James' lifestyle made him look older. Although he has recently started to look middle-aged in his roles, he still looks much younger than other actors his age or younger.
* A cosplayer by the name of Joyce Poring, who lives in the Philippines, is nearing 20. She looks more like 10! [[http://ohmygumiho.deviantart.com/ See for yourself]]. She is well aware of it and uses it to her advantage, cosplaying chaarcters like the notoriously short and cute Taiga from ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'', among others.
* NataliePortman is 31 now, and still looks and sounds 20 years old.
* Kyla Pratt. She's 24 (as of this writing) but would you know that if you saw [[http://hellobeautiful.com/gossip-news/iliana-rabun-wood/gallery-kyla-pratt-grows-up-on-the-cover-of-tight-rope/ her]] walking down the street? This actually leads to the "[[ContractualPurity Prisoners of Pollyanna]]" problem, in that Pratt was a prominent younger actress, but because she looks younger than her age, some people expect her to ''act'' younger than her age.
* British politician [[http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01550/JohnPrescott_1550290c.jpg John Prescott]], despite his not inconsiderable girth, doesn't look his age. He's seventy-six. He looks maybe twenty years younger than that.
* {{Prince}} is in his 50s (56 to be exact, as of this writing), but he still looks the same way he did in the 1980s (which I'm guessing is around late-20s into 30).
* [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/04/Ron_Reagan.jpg This]] is Ron Reagan (and before you ask, yes, he's related to ''[[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan that]]'' [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Reagan]].) You'll probably peg him in his 30s, or ''maybe'' late 20s. He's actually 55.
* Eddie Redmayne, 31 as of the time of writing this (November 2013), looks like he could easily be ten years younger than his real age - he plays a 20-year-old in ''Birdsong'', and [[http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02117/BIRDSONG_2117629c.jpg looks completely convincing]].
** Clémence Poésy, Eddie's costar in ''Birdsong'', is only just 30 but looks like she's in her early twenties.
* [[http://www.seventeen.com/cm/seventeen/images/io/sev-when-i-was-17-crystal-reed-001-de.jpg Crystal Reed]], who plays the 17-year-old Allison Argent on ''TeenWolf'' at the age of 29.
* [[http://loyalkng.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Keanu-Reeves-Is-Imortal-His-Anti-Aging-Conspiracies-are-Revealed..jpg Keanu Reeves]] doesn't seem to have aged at all since the nineties and sure doesn't look like he was born in 1964. In fact, some people think he is immortal and it isn't as crazy a theory as it sounds.
* After seeing him as Hawkeye in ''[[{{Film/TheAvengers}}The Avengers]]'', you probably wouldn't have guessed that Jeremy Renner is nearly 42.
* Paul Reubens (better known as Pee-wee Herman) was in his late twenties when he created his popular ManChild character. Nearly twenty years later, when he made a career comeback by appearing as a superhero in ''Film/MysteryMen'' he seemed barely to have aged at all despite being nearly 50. He's about 60 now and his face has begun to show some cracks, but with the right makeup he can still get away with portraying the Pee-wee character.
* Creator/ChristinaRicci just turned 33 as of 2013. She once complained she usually feels especially vulnerable in regards to her personal safety and security, as she not only looks like child-like, she remains the size of one per contemporary US standards. In her late-teens, she could still be[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sleepy_hollow_ver2.jpg mistaken]] as someone a decade younger, if this film poster was any indication!
* Music/LionelRichie anyone? The man seems to have avoided the aging process since the 80s.
* Condoleezza Rice is 59, but she looks much younger.
* CliffRichard is 73 but looks like a man in his 50s. Not for nothing is he known as the "PeterPan" of pop music. This picture [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/08/Cliff_Richard_performs_at_State_Theatre%3B_Sydney%2C_Australia_%282%29.jpg]] was taken in 2013.
* Denise Richards turned 44 in February 2015. She just escapes the aging process, too.
* [[Music/TheRollingStones Keith Richards]], while not the world's most attractive man, certainly doesn't look like he's almost 70. Of course, the reason for this is obvious; [[TheAlcoholic he's well preserved]].
* Creator/AlanRickman was just shy of 70 when he died. Seriously. 70. He's best known worldwide as Severus Snape from the Franchise/HarryPotter films - a role landed when he was 55. In book canon, Snape's character would have been about '''31''' at the beginning, and 38 at the end. Although it appears there was an AgeLift done on the movie portrayals of the characters, Snape's character was probably still portrayed as mid-forties at most at the end of the film series - at which point Alan Rickman pulled off Snape convincingly and ''awesomely'' at age 64.
* Italo-disco diva [[http://www.tizianarivale.com/ Tiziana Rivale]] is ''51'' (almost as old as {{Music/Madonna}}), but looks late 20's or 30's.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathleen_Robertson Kathleen Robertson]], known for her roles on ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'' and ''Boss'', is 40 years old. She can easily pass as a girl in her early 20's however.
* Kimmy Robertson was 36 when she appeared on ''''Series/TwinPeaks'' and appeared in various commercials throughout the late 80s/early 90s. Because of her high pitched voice and stereotypical 80s hair/outfits, she looked like she could pass for a twenty something. Pushing 60, she looks like she could be in her mid 40s to early 50s. http://www.zimbio.com/Kimmy+Robertson
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mitt_Romney_by_Gage_Skidmore_6.jpg Mitt Romney]] is 66, but looks more like he's in his 40's or (maybe) 50's.
* [[http://www.carolroscoe.com/Site/About_Me.html Carol Roscoe]](late 30's/early 40's), who has lately played several DawsonCasting roles, including Sheri in ''Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World''.
* French comedian [[http://mag.agendaculturel.fr/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/anne_roumanoff_reference.jpg Anne Roumanoff]] is 46 and looks a lot younger.
* Morgan Rowe, a popular Seattle stage actress, not to be confused with others with the same name, 40's, looks about 15-20 years younger.
* ''[[FerrisBuellersDayOff Ferris Bueller]]'' fans are usually rightly flabbergasted when they find out that Alan Ruck was ''29'' when he played, and legitimately looked the age of, 18-year-old Cameron Frye. [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-62Qmxgf-lh8/UA7eCGGlAEI/AAAAAAAAE8k/AjFjLXi-KjY/s640/alan+ruck.jpg He now looks his current age]] (58 as of July 2014), however.
* This is Creator/PaulRudd in [[http://cdn0.hark.com/images/000/008/068/8068/original.0 1995]], then almost 10 years later, in [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_eSQ6iz6V9rA/R2aJ2UcXIfI/AAAAAAAAAHs/GZoQ7ytwwlo/s400/2337278.jpg 2004]], in [[http://geektyrant.com/storage/page-images/Rudd%20Mann%20Knocked.jpeg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1294383936846 2007]],in [[http://cdn1.hark.com/images/000/008/325/8325/original.0 2009]], and now [[http://www.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article684748.ece/BINARY/Jennifer+Aniston+and+Paul+Rudd+grace+the+cover+of+GQs+March+2012+issue this year (2012)]]. As of this day, the man is 43, and since 20 years the only thing that changed is his hair. Not only can he still pass as being in his mid-twenties: he stopped growing older in his mid-twenties!
* Creator/WinonaRyder just turned forty. If not for her being in the business for over twenty years, it would be easy to think she was closer to thirty.
* Creator/MasahiroSakurai, the creator of ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', is 43 as of 2013, yet [[http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/2803447/masahiro_sakurai.jpg looks]]...thirty...twenty...something. He just seems to never age.
* Filipina singer/actress Lea Salonga looked barely into her teens when she originated the role of Kim in MissSaigon. She was 17 when she auditioned, 18 when the show opened. Now 39, she could easily pass for mid-20's.
* [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Andy Samberg]] is 34, but doesn't look or act a day over 19.
** His ''Music/TheLonelyIsland'' co-star Jorma Taccone is even more noticeable. He was born in 1977 but looks no older than his mid-twenties at most. He even played Andy Samberg's younger brother in ''Film/HotRod'' despite being a year older.
* Thomas Brodie Sangster, as of 2014, is still mistaken for - and often cast as - a teenager. He was 24 when he appeared in ''Film/TheMazeRunner'' but didn't look a day over 16. Particularly startling in Series/GameOfThrones, where he and costar Isaac Hempstead Wright looked almost exactly the same age despite a ''9-year'' age difference (Wright was 13-14, Sangster was 22-23).
** This was somehow even more noticeable when he was younger. He was 12 or 13 when filming ''Film/LoveActually'', but looked like he was ''maybe'' 8.
** Same with when he voiced Ferb
%%* Creator/SusanSarandon
* KenjiSawada between 1983-1997, when he seemed to alternate between looking like someone in his early 20s and early thirties. Of course, not letting his beard grow out and staying clean-shaven until 2013 may have a part in this, as well as his heavy use of VisualKei makeup and clothing in those 15 years.
* [[LacunaCoil Cristina Scabbia]] is now 40 and looks no older than her mid twenties.
* If Music/BobSeger (who is currently 70) were to dye his hair and remove his glasses, he would look exactly the same as he did in his late thirties.
* Atticus Shaffer is 13 but looks ''eight'' - actually, he has IV Osteogenesis Imperfecta, so as a result, he's a lot shorter than average.
* Music/{{Shakira}} was born in 1977. Throughout her entire career, she could have easily passed for a teenager. Being barely 4'11" tall also helps.
* Creator/WilliamShatner is in his eighties but could pass for a man thirty years younger. (The photo on his page is fairly current.) Consider that he's actually four days ''older'' than Creator/LeonardNimoy (who, by the time he passed away, looked good for being in his eighties but was visibly elderly)...
* Singer and talk-show host Dinah Shore can be seen in this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGKO0s64leM mid-1980s spot for Holly Farms chicken]]. For those looking, she was pushing '''70''' at the time.
* Creator/JakeShort of ''Series/ANTFarm'' is 16, but his lack of height and short stature combined with his then childish voice make him look at most 12. Even looking at his castmates Music/ChinaAnneMcClain and Creator/SierraMcCormick, it's ''really'' hard to believe he's older than both of them. Think about this: Creator/StefanieScott, who plays the 16-17 year old Lexi on the show, is only ''5 months older than him''. It took the 2nd half of his 16-year old life for his voice to finally break.
* Creator/SarahSilverman is 41 - [[http://static.wetpaint.me/network/ROOT/photos/140690227-4539369416381811593.jpg this is a 2012 picture]]. She looks a decade younger.
* Director Creator/BryanSinger was 48 years old when he was interviewed for featurettes on the Blu-Ray release for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', but he could easily be mistaken for mid-thirties.
* For a long time, [[http://www.newreleasetuesday.com/artistdetail_photodetail.php?gallery_id=246_id=138&photo_id=5432&page=1 Michael W. Smith]] (born in 1957) hardly looked a day over 30. Now that he's nearing 60, he's aged a little... to hardly a day over 40.
* Slash of Music/GunsNRoses doesn't seem to have aged at all since the 1980's. He's now 48 but doesn't look older than his early thirties. It helps that he has dressed exactly the same way since that time.
* Creator/WillSmith still looks remarkably baby-faced in his 40's.
%%* Pretty much nobody on the face of this darn planet will ever be 100% convinced that Music/LittleRichard is in his 80s (born in December 1932). [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/16/Little_Richard_in_2007.jpg This is a fairly recent photo of him.]] He looks to be in his early 50s ''at most'', despite having no plastic surgery.
* Dee Snider, of Music/TwistedSister fame, is 60 yet [[http://media.timeout.com/images/101448069/660/370/image.jpg simply doesn't age]]. When the music video for "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" was filmed, he looked [[http://images2.mtv.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:194933?width=657&height=370&crop=true&quality=0.85 exactly]] the [[http://vimg.tu.tv/imagenes/videos/t/w/twisted-sister-we-re-not-gonna-take-it_1_1_imagenGrande1.jpg same]] as he did in the video for "We're Not Gonna Take It" which was filmed over 20 years earlier. Though to be fair, he's always looked like he was in his forties even in his younger days.
* Though he ''might'' have had a few slight nips & tucks on his face, Rick Springfield is like [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/PICS%20for%20Web%20Forums/rick_zpsff9dbb22.png "65 going on 40".]]
* Dylan and Cole Sprouse are 22 but appear to be in their late teens.
* RingoStarr just turned 73 years old, but he looks 50 at most.
* Current Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens used to coach the Butler University Bulldogs. When they made the Final Four in 2010, he was constantly being asked which position he played. He was 34 at the time.[[note]]They made the Final Four in 2011, but by that time the jig was up...[[/note]]
* LLCoolJ (James Todd Smith) is in his early 40's, but doesn't look much older than 30.
* Anyone who caught his cameo on ''30 Rock'' would probably be surprised to learn that Aaron Sorkin is fifty.
* GwenStefani. Does she look like she was born in 1969 and has three children? Summed up by her playing 19-year-old Creator/JeanHarlow in ''TheAviator''. Not only was she [[DawsonCasting 34 at the time]], she was also eight years older than Miss Harlow was when she ''passed away''. Of course her seeming agelessness has made Mrs. Stefani an absolute tabloid and magazine darling over the last decades.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Stephanopoulos George Stephanopoulos]], born in 1961.
* Pamela Stephenson (wife of Creator/BillyConnolly) is 62 - she looks at least twenty years younger as can be seen is this photo - [[http://www.contactmusic.com/pics/lf/lfw_matthew_willaimson_front_row_190212/pamela-stephenson-london-fashion-week---autumnwinter-2012---matthew_3739095.jpg]]
* Richard Sterban of Music/TheOakRidgeBoys is in his 70s, but looks [[http://www.tvrage.com/person/id-353033/Richard+Sterban about half that]].
* Creator/PatrickStewart is 72, but could easily pass for 50's. Hell, look at the first episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in which he's 47, and you'd be hard-pressed to tell him apart from today. Despite some extra wrinkles and filling out a bit, he looked like the same old bald man we know and love when he was in his 30's. Which makes the younger, full haired cadet seen in the episode ''Tapestry'' hilarious.
** Just take [[http://www.collegehumor.com/post/6993683/quiz-when-was-this-picture-of-patrick-stewart-taken the quiz.]] The only way to tell is if you recognize the source of each picture.
* Safe to say, few would think model/actress Alana Stewart (known mainly for her being the ex-wife of rocker Music/RodStewart and actor George Hamilton) [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3195720/Ageless-beauty-Alana-Stewart-looks-far-younger-70-years-heads-dinner-lace-blouse.html was 70]] looking at her.
* Music/RodStewart himself is doing very well for a 70 year old - he looks at least 20 years younger. [[http://www.thetelegram.com/media/photos/unis/2015/02/26/2015-02-26-11-26-04-TEL-26022015-RodtheBod-SUB.jpg]]
* [[ThePolice Sting]] is 62 and doesn't look much older than 45. Must be all the tantric sex.
* Regardless of whether it's due to expert plastic surgery or really fortunate genes, one would probably be shocked if they knew that the lovely Creator/MerylStreep is 64.
* Keith Strickland of The B-52's has not aged visibly at all for much of his life, which is largely down to his healthy lifestyle (he's a buddhist, vegetarian and keeps constantly active). The only visible difference is that he has shorter hair these days. Cindy Wilson also looks extremely good for her age, having been a mother.
* Sarah Stiles (Joanne in ''Vanities: The Musical'', as well as Lucy and Kate Monster in ''Theatre/AvenueQ'') is 32 (30 at the time of the off-Broadway production of the former), but looks and sounds teenage.
* A certain prominent politician from [[UsefulNotes/ThatSouthEastAsianCountry a certain South East Asian country]] qualifies. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Burma_3_150_cropped.jpg This]] is her in 1995, and [[http://arabnews.com/world/article189419.ece/REPRESENTATIONS/large_620x350/WOR_Suukyi.jpg this]] is her immediately after release from house arrest in 2010. And she was 65 at her release.
* Voice actress Creator/TaraStrong is over 40, but looks like she's in her late 20s. And this is after getting marrried, and having two kids.
** Has made fun of this in her tweets
* Arika Takarano, the lead singer of ALI PROJECT. [[http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs26/f/2008/151/c/d/Arika_Takarano_is_LOVE_by_joelestrange.jpg She looks like this.]]. She also turned ''fifty'' in 2013 (she was born in 1963).
* Creator/DavidTennant. Take a nice long look at his picture. He's 40.
* If Creator/EmmaThompson is ''53'', then whoever posted this is MickeyMouse.
* Creator/TiffanyThornton from ''Series/SoRandom'' looks about 16-19 years old, but is actually 26.
* Creator/JenniferTilly, 54, looks like she's in her 30s.
* Music/AshleyTisdale [[http://www.ashleytisdale.com is 30.]]
* Japanese singer Music/JunTogawa is in her fifties, but can still pull off looking like someone in her late teens or early twenties.
* Marisa Tomei is currently 50 at this time (born in December 1964) but looks much younger.
* [[Music/OneDirection Louis Tomlinson]] is now 23 (born in December 1990). He looks, at the most, maybe 16.
* Alessandra Torresani (known from ''Series/{{Caprica}}'') looks about mid-to-late teens but is really 27 (born 1987). Oh yeah, she has a black belt in taekwondo and has shown in a video interview with Wired that she's able to kick ass in 6-inch heels, her CombatStilettos.
* Jerry Trainor from ''Series/ICarly''. He's played Spencer, a man in his mid to late twenties, but he looks like a college student and acts like one. Jerry is 38.
* Creator/AlexTrebek is 74, but doesn't look much older than 50. It's probably because [[BadassMustache his mustache]] is gone.
* The Canadian politician, Justin Trudeau, Son of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has such youngish movie star looks that his Conservative opponents tried painting him as a wet-behind-the-ears 20something, when he is actually in his early 40's and not much younger than his father when he became Prime Minister.
* Creator/TinaTurner is, as of this writing (February 2015), 75 and she doesn't look old in [[http://tinaturnerblog.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/tina-1-1.jpg this 2011 photo]]. Nor in this 2009 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmH4YlNdWAg video]], at ''seventy''! However, she never looked ''young'' either, even in her pictures from 4 decades ago [[YoungerThanTheyLook she has the same fortyish appearance]].
* Sofia Vassilieva (known from ''Series/{{Medium}}'') looks almost too young to be a teenager but is really 21 (born 1992).
* Danny Vaughn of the US rock band Tyketto is possibly part vampire. He was born in 1961 making him 53 but looks around 15 years younger. This picture was taken in 2012 [[http://myglobalmind.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/DannyVaugh_Tyketto_Interviewpic_5.jpg]] when he was 51!
* [[GilmoreGirls Milo]] [[Series/{{Heroes}} Ventimiglia]] is 35 but looks 25 at the most. This made his relationship with Creator/HaydenPanettiere a little more unsettling in addition to the fact she was playing his niece.
* Eli Wallach was 50 when filming ''TheGoodtheBadandtheUgly''. He looked like he was in his early to mid forties.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Walters Barbara Walters]] looks 65, but is actually 85.
* DenzelWashington, a few grey hairs aside, barely seems to have aged since He was in ''Cry Freedom'' back in 1987. He's now 58, but seems perfectly at home in action films with actors twenty to twenty-five years younger.
* Naomi Watts is 44 and looks to be in early 30's. She is even set to star in a 2013 biopic about Princess Diana despite being almost a decade older than Diana was when she died.
* Gerard Way of Music/MyChemicalRomance is 35 but still somehow seems to age backwards. This is despite all the drinking, drugs, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking coffee]], and his ridiculous smoking habit.
* Anyone who saw ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' thought Sigourney Weaver looked darn fine. She's ''62''.
* Creator/RachelWeisz is 42? 32, ''maybe''.
* Raquel Welch. No earthly force should be able to make the average person believe that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RaquelWelchApr2010.jpg this]] is a picture of a 70-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. She could probably pass for 55.
* Voice actor Creator/BillyWest is 63 as of this writing, but looks like he's only in his mid 40s at most.
* ''IceRoadTruckers''' 23-year-old rookie [[http://www.history.com/images/shows/bios/ice-road-truckers/irt-6/Austin6_480x250.jpg Austin Wheeler]] looks and sounds like he could be in his mid-teens. There are twentysomethings on TV who [[DawsonCasting play high school kids]] and look older.
* Creator/BettyWhite is 93 as of 2015, but looks to be in her mid 60s.
* Vanna White, of ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' fame, hardly looks to be in her mid-50s.
* Ben Whishaw is in his early 30s but could easily pass for mid 20s.
* Owen Wilson. 43 years old, looks like he's in his 30's.
* Music/PorcupineTree mainman [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8f/Stevewilson-07.jpg/459px-Stevewilson-07.jpg Steven Wilson]] is 47 but could probably still pass for someone in their mid- to late-twenties.
** Interestingly, Wilson's longtime friend and {{Opeth}} frontman Mikael Akerfeldt, who he's often pictured with, looks quite a bit older than him but is actually 7 years younger than Wilson. It's not that Akerfeldt looks bad for his age, it's just that Wilson looks so young for his.
* Pharrell Williams is 40. ''40''. [[http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/woman/fashion-beauty/pharrell-williams-shares-skincare-secret-29219782.html He claims that good skincare has kept him freshfaced.]]
* Creator/ReeseWitherspoon was born in 1976, but looks at least 10 years younger.
* Creator/ElijahWood, as of the time Part 1 of ''The Hobbit'' releases, is 31 years old. He doesn't look much older than he did when he was ''18 years old'' and working on the ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' films. And he didn't look 18 then. Ironically, he was playing a character that was much ''older'' than his chronological age then. (Frodo is 33 when introduced and 50 when he leaves The Shire) But since this trope was also true of the Hobbits InUniverse - to the point where Frodo's 33rd birthday was a ''coming of age'' celebration - he ends up as a teenager playing a 33-year-old character that's supposed to look like a teenager.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic is 55, but doesn't look any older than his mid-thirties. In fact, thanks to removing his ridiculous glasses, afro, and mustache he had in the 80's and 90's, he actually looks younger than he did when he was actually young.
* Check out [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJCyCyn2Eyw this video]], then look at how old they say Winfred Yu is. He looks about 20 years younger.
* Music/TayZonday is one of the most extreme examples. He's 30 years old, but looks like he's in his late teens ''at the very most''. His voice is also extremely deep and [[VocalDissonance doesn't fit him]], to the point it almost looks like he's lip-syncing in his videos. His page image on this wiki was taken when he was '''25'''.
* Voice Actress Creator/CheramiLeigh is 26 but looks like she can pass as a 13 year old.
* Robbie Amell (Cousin of actor Stephen Amell) is 26 years old but can pass off as a teenager
* Creator/MonicaRial is 36 years old but looks mid-20s
* Carlos Valdes (Cisco in Series/TheFlash2014) Looks about mid-teens (without his facial hair, at least) but is 24.
* Creator/JaneFonda is pushing 80 but looks to be in her 50's. It's even gone to the point where Creator/BrooklynDecker, a woman old enough to be her granddaughter, is playing her daughter in the show Series/GraceAndFrankie (and their believable as mother and daughter to boot!).
* All four members of ''Music/GreenDay'' are in their early forties, but look to be in their mid-late 20's.
** Not so much in Mike Dirnt's case anymore as he's [[http://assets.rollingstone.com/assets/images/blog_entry/q-a-green-days-mike-dirnt-on-billie-joe-armstrongs-recovery-20130301/dirnt-624-1361824491.jpg aged]] quite dramatically in recent years.
* All the members of Music/XJapan (with the exception of Pata) look to be in their early 30s despite the fact that they're all nearing their 50s. Sugizo stands out the most as he actually looks younger now than he did in the 90s.
** At the time of his death, former lead guitarist Music/{{hide|toMatsumoto}} was 33, yet could have easily passed for a teenager. He seemed to [[http://sp0.fotolog.com/photo/48/8/96/visual_mty/1197590192_f.jpg age]] [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jn5QN-HVZno/TpS4NI1XjYI/AAAAAAAAACo/19jLzNdUDr8/s1600/hide.jpg backwards]] as the years went on. This is especially impressive when you remember that he was an alcoholic, chain-smoker and occasional drug user.
* KyaryPamyuPamyu is 22, but looks mid-teens at the very oldest.
* TylerTheCreator is 24 and it can be hard to tell the difference between pictures of him now and pictures of him at 17-18, around the time his debut, ''Bastard'', dropped.
* Creator/HideoKojima was born in 1963 but looks ''considerably'' younger. A recurring joke among ''Franchise/MetalGear'' fans is that he injected himself with nanomachines for that.
* Former Music/DreamTheater vocalist Charlie Dominici is 64, yet looks like he's in his [[http://www.dominici.com/charlie_dominici.jpg mid-forties]] at the very most.
* Would you ever believe that [[http://img.ccrd.clearchannel.com/media/mlib/2135/2015/07/default/ritchie_blackmore_0_1436187835.jpg Ritchie Blackmore]] is now over 70 years old?
** His wife, [[http://mozicsillag.cc/img_stars/candice-night-1440081017.jpg Candice Night]], is 44. '''''FORTY'''''. '''''FOUR!'''''
* This is American drummer [[http://www.metal-archives.com/images/5/3/6/9/53692_artist.jpg?4959 Gregg Bisonette]]. He looks like he's around his mid-twenties right? Well, he's actually ''56''. Apparently age just gave up on him thirty years ago.
* Music/{{Enya}}, in her early fifties, looks barely any older than she did in her thirties.
* British comedy icon, Creator/BruceForsyth, is [[http://www.thsh.co.uk/files/images/applicationfiles/4930.8359.30MayBruceForsythweb/630x3.fitwithoffset.JPG 87]], but looks like he's in his late 60s.
* Music/DevinTownsend is [[http://www.theaquarian.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Buzz-Devin-Townsend-1-Photo-by-Erich-Saide.jpg 43]], but he looks to be at least a decade younger.

----
* Danneel Ackles (formerly Danneel Harris) was 26 when she signed on to play 16-year old Rachel Gatina on OneTreeHill, but you never would've guessed just by looking at her, even now in her 30s, she looks barely out of high school.
* Creator/AmyAdams is now in her early forties. You wouldn't know it from looking at her--which makes the complaints about Henry Cavill being younger than her in ''Film/ManOfSteel'' seem a moot point, as her Lois certainly ''appears'' younger than Cavil's Superman. In addition, ''Film/AmericanHustle'' has essentially cemented [[MsFanservice her sex-symbol credentials]]...at 39. Her nemesis in the film is played by Creator/JenniferLawrence, who's still in her 20s. In their scenes together, they look about the same age.
* Chris Addison in ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' and ''Film/InTheLoop''. He looks about twelve but is over forty.
* The French actress Isabelle Adjani. She was born in '''1955'''! This is particularily striking in ''La Reine Margot'', where she plays a 19-year old princess pretty darn convincingly. Despite being ''39''.
* Casey Affleck is now 38 but looks about ten years younger. This is usually lampshaded in roles where he is acting alongside actors who are older and look it.
* Keiko Agena was 27 years old when she signed on to play the 16-year old Lane Kim on ''Series/GilmoreGirls'' (only six years younger than co-star Lauren Graham), and many fans couldn't believe it even when they learned her real age. In this case, the DawsonCasting worked out fantastically.
* Creator/FreemaAgyeman. She looks like she's in her early-to-mid twenties on ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'' (her character has been working for the Crown Prosecution Service for about two years after law school - which she'd have completed at about 22 or 23 - as of series 4), despite the fact that she was 30 when the series premiered.
* Also Creator/JessicaAlba, who has had few changes as she did when she debuted in the late '90s. She blossomed early and maintained it all the way today, as she admitted that she already had "womanly curves" at a young age. Regrettably, the downside of this is that this is likely the reason for [[SoBeautifulItsACurse her complaint]] that she can't get the more serious roles that she really wants to have. Luckily, the upside of this is that helps keep her in-demand as a product endorser.
* Damon Albarn from Blur\Gorillaz. In his late twenties he still could have easily passed for a 20-21 years old, and even today he looks at least ten years younger than his age.
* Scott "Klayton" Albert, the man behind the metal/electronic project {{Celldweller}}, looks like he's in his late 20's/early 30's. He was born in ''1963''. Some people have denied this fact, but it's the most common birthdate shown online, plus his first project was in 1992 so it's unlikely he was a kid back then, so most people just go with it.
* [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-557762/Tiny-teenager-India-smallest-girl-world.html Jyoti Amge]], 16, is the world's smallest girl. She is 1'11" or about the size of a 6 month old baby.
%%* Creator/JenniferAniston. Does she look like she's in her forties?
* Shiri Appleby (of ''Series/{{Roswell}}'') is 34 years old as of 2013, and has been convincingly been playing teenagers for over fifteen years. Even though she played a grown woman and mother of the main character on ''Series/LifeUnexpected'', she ''still'' looked like a teenager!
* Speaking of Series/LifeUnexpected Britt Robertson who played her daughter fits as well. She was 19 playing 15 at the time. In 2015 she turned 25 and still could easily pass for 15.
* Creator/AsiaArgento is 38, but looks to be about ten years younger than that. Of course, she is Italian.
* Creator/HirohikoAraki, creator of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', seems to be aging ''backwards''. [[http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/343/315/b9c.jpg Seriously]].
* How old would you say [[Music/GunsNRoses DJ Ashba]] is in this photo? [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/66/DJ_Ashba_2010.jpg/220px-DJ_Ashba_2010.jpg Twenty-five, twenty-six]]? He's actually forty.
* Music/RickAstley is 49 years old, yet the man [[http://www.mtv.com/crop-images/2013/09/04/Rick%20Astley%20Getty%20Scott%20Campbell%202013.jpg hasn't aged a day]] since [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11118/111184078/4798109-8593081251-80586.png the late 80's]].
* Creator/RowanAtkinson in his fifties could still pass for early-to-mid forties.
* Voice actress Creator/LauraBailey is in her mid-thirties, but looks to be, ''at most'', in her late teens.
* Creator/TroyBaker is 39 but looks closer to 29.
* Adam Baldwin. Did you realize that he's 51? That means he was 40 during Firefly. How many people really look like [[http://rpggamer.org/uploaded_images/JayneCobb12.jpg this]] at forty?
* JamieBamber is another one of these. He was 25 years old when he did the first ''HoratioHornblower'' films but passed for a very convincing seventeen. This continued when he went on to work on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' - he was 30 years old to Creator/KateeSackhoff's 23, but they looked the same age (especially since Katee was playing a character a couple of years older than her actual age). At 40 years old (which in and of itself is still relatively young), he could convincingly pass for someone in his mid-thirties rather than 40.
* Paul Banks of Interpol looks like he's in his early or mid 20s. He's 35.
* Anita Barone is 49 but due to having a hot body, she can pull off playing Georgia Jones, the mother of Creator/BellaThorne on ''Series/ShakeItUp'',who is around her mid-to-late thirties.
* Creator/DaveBarry looks maybe in his 40s [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Dave-barry-post-hunt-2011.jpg at the oldest]]. He's 66. This was apparently a longtime issue with him, as he once told ''People'' magazine, "I reached puberty at 30. At 12, I looked like a fetus."
* Ditto for Creator/DrewBarrymore, who in her mid-twenties, was still able to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Never_been_kissed.jpg pass]] as someone in her mid-teens.
* Actor Creator/DanteBasco. He doesn't look like he aged much at all since his role as Rufio in ''Film/{{Hook}}'' and he was 16 back then, and he has been playing and voicing teenage roles.
* Shirley Bassey was born in 1937. And looks 50-ish. Heck, she looks younger than people born after her first hit (The Banana Boat song in 1957)
* Creator/WarrenBeatty is 21 years older than wife Annette Bening (who doesn't look too bad for ''her'' age). [[http://www.elistmania.com/images/articles/114/Original/WarrenBeattyAnnetteBening.jpg You'd never know it to look at them.]]
* Kristen Bell is afraid she'll be stuck like this for a while. A female actress [[SoBeautifulItsACurse actually complained she may look younger for years to come]].
* [[Music/{{Aborted}} Ken Bedene]] is almost 25, but looks fourteen or fifteen at most.
* Creator/MonicaBellucci is 49, but doesn't look any older than thirty.
* Julie Benz is 41 but looks like she's in her late 20s.
* Music/JustinBieber looks 15 at most while being in his twenties.
* Creator/KathrynBigelow is 61 (and was ''58'' when she won her Oscar) but could easily pass for a 30-something.
* Selma Blair of ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' fame is 41 but still looks mid-to late twenties.
* Alexis Bledel of ''GilmoreGirls'' is 32 as of 2013 but looks barely out high school for many years. She was on ''Series/{{Conan}}'' recently telling him how she actually has to wear makeup to look older when she goes out and that a teenage boy hit on her when she was at the airport!
* Creator/{{BRIAN BLESSED}} is already in his late 70s but looks decades younger.
* Music/DavidBowie turned 69 a couple of days before his death in 2016, but looked much younger... he simply escaped the aging process.
* Billy Boyd was the youngest of the hobbits in ''The Lord of The Rings'' but was actually the oldest. Here he is in 2003 at thirty-five: http://scrapbook.theonering.net/scrapbook/movies/characters/pippin/view/9950. In 2012, even with a few grey hairs, he still looks much younger than someone born in 1968: http://www.contactmusic.com/photo/billy-boyd-the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey---uk-premiere---arrivals_5966892.
* [[http://hammerax.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Terry-Bozzio-Hammerax.jpg Terry Bozzio]] (on the right), longtime drummer for Music/FrankZappa and co-founder of Missing Persons, is '''61''' -- ten years older than the also pictured John Stannard, president of Hammerax. This picture doesn't really do him justice, though - [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT_8YrrGXjE he must be seen in action.]]
* [[http://en.academic.ru/pictures/enwiki/79/Osaka07_Opening_Sarah_Brightman.jpg Sarah Brightman]] is 51. She looks 40 at best.
* At 60 (as of 2014), [[http://www.hawtcelebs.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/christie-brinkley-in-people-magazine-february-2014-issue_4.jpg Christie Brinkley]] looks better than most 40 year olds.
* [[http://www.google.com.ar/url?sa=i&source=images&cd=&docid=Tx-zVaShcf8oFM&tbnid=PrX9nZEQO7FoiM:&ved=0CAUQjBwwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fmissionengineering.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F05%2FChris-Broderick1.jpg&ei=lP01UtWUJYL48gTVtICYCQ&psig=AFQjCNFKSCC4DK3wvPcV-umNBG-YoICJWw&ust=1379356436662389 Chris Broderick]], Music/{{Megadeth}}'s former lead and rhythm gitarrist, is 44 but looks like he's in his late 20's, at most.
* [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2438596/50-year-old-man-asked-ID-Morrisons-supermarket-prove-hes-18-buying-alcohol.html Charles Brown]], a 50 year old father of three, was asked to show ID before being able to purchase whiskey because the cashier didn't think he was older than 25.[[note]] In the UK, you are not required to show ID to buy alcohol unless the seller suspects you are under 18 (the legal age to purchase) unlike the USA where everyone is carded. Most stores operate a "Challenge 25" policy - if you look around 25 or younger the seller will ask for ID just to be sure.[[/note]]
* Daniel Bruhl certainly counts his character in ''[[Film/InglouriousBasterds Inglourious Basterds]]'' [[http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Inglourious-Basterds.html is in his late teens/early twenties]]; Bruhl was 29 at the time of filming. Even at 37, he looks like he could pass for someone in his early thirties, if not younger.
* Sandra Bullock is 50 years old now but she looks at most to be in her mid 30s.
* As mentioned above, Creator/SteveBuscemi managed to pass as a 20-something metalhead when he was 36. Today, he's 54 but he looks like he's in his 40s.
* As Glinda in ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', Billie Burke looks like she was in her 30s. She was actually 54 at the time.
* Most would hardly ever guess that UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush is actually a few weeks older than UsefulNotes/BillClinton.
* Rose Byrne is 32 but still looks to be in her 20's.
* Actress Dyan Cannon is 75 but she looks to be in her late 30's - early 40's, apparently she's had a lot of plastic surgery.
* Creator/MichaelCaine is 81, but looks barely any older than he did when filming ''Film/TheMuppetChristmasCarol'' in the late nineties. He was in his late fifties then, but could have passed for sixties.
* Music/MariahCarey is 43 but looks like she's in her early-30's at most.
* Retired [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball NFL]] official Mike Carey (who was named the rules expert for Creator/{{CBS}}' newly acquired Thursday night NFL coverage in 2014) did not look anything like an official in his 60s; as this exchange with Brett Favre (born in 1969) showed:
-->'''Brett Favre''': I'm probably older than you. (Mike Carey grins) Close? (Carey grins) How old are you?
-->'''Mike Carey''': 61.
-->'''Favre''': YOU'RE NOT 61!!! Are you really??? Wow.... 61... you look great! What happened to ME?
* Phoebe Cates hasn't aged ''at all'' since ''DropDeadFred''. She looks like she could be younger than [[http://www.americansuperstarmag.com/sites/default/files/images/phoebe-cates-071710.jpg her own daughter]]. And she was 31 when she had her!
* [[http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Tom+Cavanagh+NBC+Entertainment+Cinema+Society+8bTP9OJ9Hp9l.jpg Tom Cavanagh]] (Ed, The Flash 2014) is 51 but could quite easily pass for early 40s.
* James Caviezel, well into his 40s, looks like he's in his late 20s.
* Creator/LeslieCheung just didn't look like he aged. Not even after [[http://oi43.tinypic.com/iqhdkx.jpg twenty years]]... [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0jhkdzK1j1rpgxgqo1_500.jpg Leslie at age 46!]]
* JohnCho is 41 yet can still convincingly play twentysomethings.
* Creator/GregCipes just turned 32? Are you serious?
* Creator/DickClark, up until his stroke in 2004, looked no older than 45 years old... at 75. There's a reason he was called "America's Oldest Teenager".
* Creator/JackieChan was born in 1954, but nowadays, he looks like he's in his late 30's.
* Michael Paul Chan (''Series/TheCloser'') looks no older than 45, despite being 61.
* Julie Christie (here in an interview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnsWt0rl6ag) is 61 but looks a well-preserved early 40s.
* There's a reason people think Creator/StephenColbert is a Time Lord. He looks exactly the same now as he did in Series/StrangersWithCandy TEN YEARS AGO.
* Gary Coleman had an autoimmune kidney disease, which, combined with the medications used to treat it, limited his growth to 4 ft 8 in, and his face retained a childlike appearance well into adulthood.
* Monique Coleman (Taylor of ''High School Musical'') is in her early thirties as of 2011. She got away with playing a teenager while in her mid/late twenties. It didn't help that she was the oldest of the main cast.
* Creator/ChrisColfer is 22 but could pass for quite a bit younger.
* Music/PhilCollins is 64 but looks a decade younger. Additionally, unlike most singers who undergo VocalDecay as they age, his singing voice sounds '''''exactly''''' the same as it did in his prime.
* Creator/SeanConnery looks old, no denying that, but he simply hasn't changed a bit from the day they shot ''Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade''...and it was twenty-three years ago! [[http://www.dula.tv/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/sean-connery-max-level-400x310.jpg See for yourself]]. At 58, he was 17 years younger than the character's implied age, and only 12 years older than Harrison Ford. In case you think it's because the production crew went to great efforts to make him look much older than he really was, take a look at him as Marko Ramius in ''The Hunt for Red October'', which came out the next year. Apart from the hairpiece, he looks just the same!
** "One you reach Max Level, you stop leveling"
* Creator/KevinConroy looks pretty good for a guy who's almost sixty.
* Music/AliceCooper was born in February 1948, but he looks like he's in his late 40s. Although, truthfully, he never really looked young. This video is from 1971. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Z7I022m5GI&feature=fvwrel , and another from 1986. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yZmOpafga0&feature=related Do you see much difference?
* Anderson Cooper (born in 1967), despite the white hair, looks like he could be in his 20's.
* MirandaCosgrove is 22, but could pass for a 9th, or even ''8th'' grader if she tried.
* NBC Sports host [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0182471/ Bob Costas]] looks to be in his mid-forties even in his early sixties.
* [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0183960/ Stephanie Courtney]], who plays Flo in the Progressive Insurance commercials is 42?!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLDEOgKCxuY Professor Brian Cox]] is a 40-something physics professor who looks like a 20-something model.
* Terry Crews is 45 and looks more like 35.
* Creator/TomCruise is 51 but could easily pass for a man of about 35.
* Creator/BenedictCumberbatch is 36, but can still easily pass for mid-twenties. He is so ethereal and unusual looking that he skews any attempt to classify his age in comparison to more normal appearances. During the UK premiere of Literature/WarHorse, he asked how old a reporter was because he thought he was about his age. The reporter replied that he was 27, and said Cumberbatch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2WxX7WH7aU looked even younger than he did]].
* Singer and actress/voice actress Elizabeth Daily is 50 but she looks like she's in her late 20's-early 30's.
* Creator/MattDamon and Josh Brolin are in their early 40s but anybody who saw them in Creator/TheCoenBrothers' ''TrueGrit'' (or anything else for that matter) could be forgiven for thinking they're about ten-fifteen years younger.
* [[Music/TheWho Roger Daltrey]] turned ''71'' in March 2015. [[http://www.wikinoticia.com/images/cucharasonica/cdn.cucharasonica.com.files.2011.01.daltrey-the-who.jpg This guy]] is pushing ''70''?
* [[http://www.mediasinfo.ro/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/corina-danila.jpg Corina]] [[http://www.libertatea.ro/typo3temp/pics/Corina_DanilaZL1_28_06a9961190.jpg Danila]], Romanian actress and voice actress in ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', is 41. Her figure has never changed since 1994.
* Stacey Dash is 46 and looks 26. She was 28 when she first played Dionne in ''Clueless''.
* Amy Davidson played the younger sister on ''Series/EightSimpleRules'' despite being six years older then her co-star Kaley Cuoco (who played the older sister). This is an example of this trope crossed with TeensAreShort.
* Elizabeth Shue looks maybe five years older in 2015 than she did when she played the lead in ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting''. She was 24 then, playing 17 but looking about 30. Now she's 51 but looks about 35.
* Ellen [=DeGeneres=] will be 58 years old in January 2016 and looks 20 years younger. Veganism and happiness are probably contributing factors.
* Creator/JohnnyDepp was born in 1963, but looks like he's in his early 30's.
* Music/{{Helloween}} vocalist Andi Deris [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/90/2011-08_Woodstock_54.jpg looks far younger]] than 48.
* Creator/ZooeyDeschanel is 32, but [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ3cTwI9bIw&feature=related can convincingly portray a teenage schoolgirl.]]
* Creator/VinDiesel is in his mid-40s but looks at least a decade younger (his bald look certainly helps), especially noticeable in the ''FastAndFurious'' films, his co-star PaulWalker noticeably ages whereas Vin looks almost exactly the same in the fourth and fifth films as he did in the first one.
* [[http://www.khanhdoan.com/ Khanh Doan]], age 35, looks late teen-ish. Then again, she's Asian.
* Nina Dobrev is 24, but could easily pass for a 16-18 teenager.
* [[Creator/AntAndDec Declan Donnelly]] once revealed in a magazine interview that he was commonly mistaken for being underage by bartenders while in his mid to late twenties. He's now 34 and the effect is less pronounced, but he still looks quite young for his age.
* Creator/RobertDowneyJr looks surprisingly good for his age, given his years of drug abuse and rough living. In ''Film/IronMan'', he's in his mid forties and could pass for about ten years younger. This is especially odd as he was in ''Film/KissKissBangBang'' a few years prior and looked like he was pushing forty.
** [[http://gifs.1000notes.com/post/25327561688 Take a look at these pictures of him from the film ''One Night Stand.'']] He was 32.
* Fran Drescher is in her 50s, but at most she looks like she's in her 40s.
* [[http://bravewords-public.s3.amazonaws.com/images/p17p0qdmnspgeusd1hm1r9s3hp4.jpg Shawn Drover]], [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Music/Megadeth?from=Main.Megadeth Megadeth's]] current drummer, looks like he is in his late 30's... he's 47.
* It can sometimes be [[http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/popcrush.com/files/2014/01/HilaryDuff1.jpg hard to tell]] that ex-DisneyChannel star Music/HilaryDuff is (as of June 2013) 25 with a child and separated husband.
* Creator/KirstenDunst looks hardly any older at the age of 30 than she did when she was a teen star in the late 90s. Go on, look at this - [[http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/Kirsten+Dunst+Cannes+2011+Melancholia+Photocall+eHuncQHWI1Rl.jpg does this look like the face of a woman who's less than a year away from her 30s]]?.
* British actress Holly Earl was born in 1992 but thanks, to her petite build and height of 5'0", looks much younger; [[DawsonCasting playing two characters aged fourteen]] (in episodes of Series/{{Skins}} and [[Recap/DoctorWho2011CSTheDoctorTheWidowAndTheWardrobe Doctor Who]]) in late 2011/early 2012.
* Jason Earles, aka [[Series/HannahMontana Jackson]], is in his 30s and married. In the first season of ''Hannah Montana'', he was ''29'', playing a 15-year old character who looked that age. In the MadeForTVMovie ''Dadnapped'' he looks ridiculous trying to play a character who is likely his own age named Merv. The fact that the primary audience for this movie are people who know him as Jackson from "Hannah Montana" makes it even less believable.
** He lampshaded this during his interview with Creator/JimmyFallon, that when he takes his wife to dinner fans of the show would go to his wife and say "You must be so proud of your son". Awkward!
** To really drive the point home, watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vbr3O5UaKPI this guest appearance]] by Wrestling/JohnCena on ''Hannah.'' As you're watching it, let it sink in that '''they're both the same age!'''
* [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie Barbara Eden]]: During her visit to Vienna [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/52/Life_Ball_2013_-_magenta_carpet_Barbara_Eden_01.jpg in late May 2013]], she briefly put on [[http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1158460/thumbs/o-I-DREAM-OF-JEANNIE-COSTUME-570.jpg her iconic harem costume]]. She still looks gorgeous at 78.
* ZacEfron (from ''HighSchoolMusical'') is in his 20s, but looks teenage. He said it best in his monologue to his tween girl fans on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'': "If it weren't for you, I'd be some random college student, instead of a college-aged man pretending to be a high schooler." And when he was 14, playing young Simon in a flashback on ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' (yes, that's him), he looked like he was about 12.
* [[Music/CattleDecapitation Josh Elmore]] is in his late thirties, but looks like he's in his early to mid-twenties.
* Creator/MichaelEmerson was born in 1954 but looks like he's in his early 40s at the most. He was already 51 when he started playing Ben on ''Series/{{Lost}}'', but doesn't look a day older than the rest of the cast who are about 10 to 15 years younger. Especially impressive in his scenes with Evangeline Lilly. He looks at most a few years older but is actually twenty-five years older than her.
* Actor Robert Englund, famous for playing horror icon Freddy Krueger, is currently ''66''. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/47/Robert_englund.jpg Look at this picture.]] That is him ''now''. He looks like he's in his early-to-mid-40's at least, and early 50's at most.
* Lead singer of ''MindlessSelfIndulgence'', Jimmy Urine (actual name James Euringer) looks like he's at least in his early-to-mid 20's, but he's actually in his 40's. Doesn't stop the fact that he has a massive amount of fangirls.
* Creator/AnnaFaris is in her mid-30s, but she looks at least 10 years younger.
* Terry Farrell. [[http://www.treknews.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/stlv-2011-terry-farrell.jpg She]] is almost ''fifty''! (Bonus points to her for aging so gracefully that she doesn't even deem it necessary to dye her hair. Grey streaks? � Who cares!)
* Creator/NoelFielding is 37 but looks about 25 and acts like a child.
* Numerous actors and actresses (almost anyone named in DawsonCasting counts, even if most of them don't quite look as young as their characters), but Creator/IslaFisher[[note]]also known as the wife of Creator/SachaBaronCohen[[/note]] stands out as someone who easily looks ten years younger than her real age.
* Creator/JodieFoster, born in November 1962, looks like she's in her early 30s.
* Until very recently, original Ultravox lead singer John Foxx did not look his age. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bL6rcCdx8KA In this video]], he's all of 33 (since the single was released in 1980 and he was born in 1947), and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyKmuQe0siQ in this 1998 VH1 Europe interview]] he certainly doesn't look fifty-one.
* Though you hear his voice more than you see his face, voice actor Creator/CrispinFreeman totally qualifies. He's 39 as of this writing but looks like he's early- to mid-twenties... just one of many reasons the fangirls love him.
** According to Freeman himself, this is actually why he moved on to voice acting from theater: his voice and appearance are mismatched, limiting the roles he could take on stage.
* There's an entire genre of international porn based on barely-legal girls who appear illegally underage. Obviously, this can get people into messy legal trouble. Columbian-born [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lupe_Fuentes Lupe Fuentes]] gained international notoriety when her porn videos very nearly got a Puerto Rican man sentenced to ''20 years'' for possessing child porn. What made the case notable was that it absolutely embarrassed the over-zealous prosecutor who, despite easily available proof online and on-file with the US Federal Government that Lupe Fuentes was indeed already of age, she stubbornly insisted that the actress couldn't possibly be older than 13-14, based on the sworn testimony of several expert witnesses who relied on the Tanner Scale. The defendant was overruled in the presentation of proof-of-age evidence and was only saved when Lupe Fuentes actually travelled from her then-residence in Colombia to personally appear in court with documentation to prove that she was indeed already 19 years old when said videos were made.
* Robert Flynn of Music/MachineHead, at 43, looked like he was in his late 20's at most. [[http://www4.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Kerrang+Awards+Arrivals+di96b2ARqqql.jpg Here's proof.]]
** During the last year, however, he aged quite a bit. He now looks about 44 (his current age). [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/2b/RobbFlynn2012.jpg/398px-RobbFlynn2012.jpg]]
* [[http://www.redcarpet-fashionawards.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Jane-Fonda-In-Vera-Wang-2014-AFI-Life-Achievement-Award-A-Tribute-to-Jane-Fonda.jpg Jane Fonda]] is 76 years old as of 2014. She still looks like she's in her forties.
* Michael J. Fox is 54, but often looks at least 20 years younger. His voice doesn't really help, either; would you believe he was in his 40s when he voiced Stuart Little?
** Not to mention that he ''effortlessly'' passed as a seventeen-year-old in ''Film/BackToTheFuture'' - [[DawsonCasting he was twenty-three at the time (twenty-eight in the sequels, too!)]].
** Seconded on his voice. This year he reprised his role as Marty in ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions'', not only in the main story, but also in a level pack retelling the events of the movie. '''He sounds exactly the same.'''
* Everybody remembers Creator/HarrisonFord as Han Solo... or at least, most females do. He was nearly forty during ''Franchise/StarWars''.
* [[Franchise/PowerRangers Power Rangers']] [[Creator/JasonDavidFrank Jason David Frank]] was 29 during the filming of Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder, but he didn't look like he aged too much since his previous seasons as Tommy and he was in his early twenties back then (well, 19 as the Green Ranger). This was pointed out in the first episode when Cassidy asked if Tommy was really old enough to be a teacher. He responds by saying, 'I can assure you, I'm old enough.' Today, he's 43 and looks like he's in his 30s.
* Creator/EdwardFurlong was 14 years old playing 10-year old John Connor in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', and 21 playing a 16-year old in ''Film/AmericanHistoryX''. Even in his 30's he still has quite a youthful demeanor and high-pitched voice.
* Neil Gaiman is 52 but looks like he is in his mid-forties at the most.
* Johnny Galecki (who plays Leonard on ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'') will turn 40 in April 2015 and like JimParsons, looks at least a decade younger.
* [[Music/DyingFetus John Gallagher]] is in his early forties, yet still looks more or less the same as he did back around 2000.
* Creator/AndrewGarfield. He's 31, yet looks as though he's about 18, which made him one of the semi-rare [[JustifiedTrope justified]] examples of DawsonCasting when he played Peter Parker in ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan''.
* Jennie Garth is 41 but looks young for her age. Dress her up as her 90210 character Kelly and she'd still look like a teenager. Ironically, she was one of the few 90210 actors that actually ''were'' teens when the show began.
* When Bill Gates was around his twenties, he was often mistaken for being a teen. Even in his late 50s, he could still pass for early-to-mid 40's. However, [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/19/Bill_Gates_June_2015.jpg this picture]], taken in June 2015 when he was four months shy of 60, shows him finally starting to look closer to his actual age.
* Brian Geraghty is 38 yet can easily pass as early 20's, and is often cast as the rookie soldier in movies like ''TheHurtLocker'' or ''Jarhead'', and most recently ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'' though there his seeming youth is intentional and pretends to be a rookie cop while in fact being on first-name basis with Edgar J. Hoover and having been in military intelligence during WW1.
* Creator/SarahMichelleGellar was 19, nearly 20 in fact, when ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' premiered. She was baby-faced enough to look astonishingly convincing as a 16-year-old. She's now 35, and has only ''just'' begun looking like she's not a twentysomething.
* Creator/SummerGlau is another Whedon favourite whose small size, slender build, and delicate, childish features let her convincingly play characters who are supposed to be a good ten years younger than her actual age. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/27/Summer_Glau_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg Here's]] a picture of her from November 2012; she's 31 years old and still looks like she's in her late teens or early twenties. In [[{{Series/Firefly}} The R. Tam Sessions]], a then-23-year-old Summer managed to convincingly play a ''14-year old girl''.
* Joshua Gomez, best known for playing Morgan Grimes in ''Series/{{Chuck}}'', is 36 years old, but looks like he is in his mid 20's. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a9/Morgan_Grimes.png Here's Proof.]]
* Creator/SelenaGomez, which can lead to some Squick-ish tendencies as [[http://www.movie-dvd-copy.com/images/dvds/another-cinderella-story.jpg this]] cover for ''Another Cinderella Story'' shows (Selena is 15 at this time, her love interest is played by a 25-year old, and Selena looks younger than she is.)
* Kim Gordon of SonicYouth is 60, but looks far younger. The picture on the link was taken when she was 59. [[http://www.elle.com/pop-culture/celebrities/kim-gordon-sonic-youth-profile]]
* Lucas Grabeel is 30, but looks more like early 20s.
* Creator/HeatherGraham is 42. In ''TheHangover'', she played a role originally written for LindsayLohan, who's ''sixteen years younger than her''.
* Music/ArianaGrande is in her early twenties and still looks like a teenager due to her short height.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBbG2tSDfOo Brooke Greenberg]] had an unknown medical condition that prevented her from aging. She was really 20 years old when she died, but she still possessed the body of an infant and the mental capacity of a toddler.
* Music/{{Radiohead}}'s lead guitarist, [[http://www.basca.org.uk/public/images/JonnyGreenwood.jpg Jonny Greenwood]]. He is in his forties, and aside from having shorter hair now, he doesn't look a day older than he did [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_l1o6mmTDBy1qbqb1do1_500.jpg in 1994]].
* Creator/SethGreen was born in 1974, but looks, acts, and dresses like he is in his later teenage years to early twenties. [[https://instagram.com/p/6-TfdDg2S5/ This is him at age 41.]]
* Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy. [[http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/227765_215947495101133_138018959560654_828696_4499773_n.jpg This is her on the cover of a 2011 magazine.]] She's '''37'''.
* Music/JoshGroban is 33, yet he looks to be roughly college-aged.
* [[http://rocknewsdesk.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/n1306halford.jpg Rob Halford]], lead singer of Music/JudasPriest, is 63 but hasn't really aged a day in the last decade.
* Daryl Hall (b. 1946) and John Oates (b. 1949) of ''Hall & Oates'', pictured [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2a/Hall_%26_Oates.jpg here]] in 2008. Seriously, they look better than most people half their age. Plastic surgery helps.
* Another ''Buffy'' alumna, Creator/AlysonHannigan, was 22 when she took the part of 16-year-old Willow, and 29 when the series ended. Not that you'd have known it, looking at her. Now that she's on ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', she often plays her character's college or high school self in flashbacks, where she doesn't look out of place in a classroom full of actual teenagers. [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/5949a2a61679f539c32567083ba71d85/tumblr_mg9tsaNL3B1s2evico4_1280.jpg This is a recent photo of her at 38 years old]] (she's the taller one).
* Singer and Actress Leisha Hailey was born in 1971 but still looks like she is in her mid to late twenties.
* Chris Hardwick, who you may know from Podcast/NerdistPodcast, is forty-three at the time of writing but looks like he's in his mid to late twenties. It probably helps that he lost a lot of weight and quit drinking; earlier in life, he looked considerably older as a result.
* Tony Harnell of TNT. Nearing 50, looks mid twenties to early thirties.
* Bob Harper, one of the trainers on ''Series/TheBiggestLoser'', is 45.
* Creator/LauraElenaHarring is 48, and looks almost young enough to be her own daughter.
* G. Hannelius looks 11 at most, and plays a 6th grader and DogWithABlog despite being old enough to be a high school freshman. She's nearly 15.
* Melissa Joan Hart is starting to look older now, but [[DawsonCasting she played teenage roles for a while]].
* Creator/DanielleHarris playing the 18-year old Annie Brackett in the ''Film/{{Halloween 2007}}'' remake when she was thirty. She's about to turn thirty-five and she could still pass off as someone in high school.
* Debbie Harry was 30 when Music/{{Blondie}} started in 1975, but looked around 10 years younger. Throughout the 80s she still looked good. She is 68 now and whilst looks noticeably older, is still going.
* Popular professional skater Tony Hawk looks as though he's in his 20s, but was actually born in 1968.
* Creator/JohnHawkes looks far younger than someone born in 1959 should. In ''Series/{{Deadwood}}'', he looks about the same age or younger than Timothy Olyphant despite being nearly a decade older than him.
* Goldie Hawn is currently 67, she looks like she's in her 30's or 40's.
* Creator/SalmaHayek, 45, looks like she's in her 20s.
* Music/HunterHayes is in his early 20s, but still looks like mid-teens.
* [[http://www.berlinale.de/media/bilder/2013/boulevard_2013/11_2_/110213_PH_3007_IMG_FIX_1200x800.jpg Holly Hunter]] was born in 1958. She looks about 35 in most of her roles.
* Doug Hutchison played Percy Wetmore in ''Film/TheGreenMile''. Percy is supposed to be 21; Hutchison was ''39'' years old at the time. He told Frank Darabont that he was in his early/mid 30s. When he went to audition for ''Film/TheSaltonSea'', the director told him he was 'too young', resulting in Hutchison having to show him his drivers license which proved his age. He's now in his fifties but still looks like he's maximum in his 30s if not younger. All of this events seems to be even more interesting if we remember that his character in ''Series/TheXFiles'', the first MonsterOfTheWeek Eugene Victor Toomes was [[ActorAllusion a mutant without aging process]] who looked absolutely the same in 1930s, 1960s and [[TheNineties 1990s]] thanks to eating human livers ripped off alive. Hutchison married model Courtney Stodden when he was 51 and she was 16. If that doesn't {{Squick}} you out, consider that because she's an example of YoungerThanTheyLook, they actually look like an age-appropriate couple!
* At the time of his death, Isaac Hayes was 65 years old, yet hardly looked different then he did in the 70s when he was in his twenties.
* [[Series/TheBradyBunch Florence Henderson]]
* Shirley Henderson was 35 when she first played the eternally 13-year old ghost Moaning Myrtle in ''Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets''.
* James Hetfield of Music/{{Metallica}} doesn't look a day over 30, even though he's really 50.
** During the 1990s, his beard made him look older than he really was (especially during the Load years).
* Actress and voice actress Dana Hill looked like a teenager for most of her adult life. She suffered from Type 1 diabetes which prevented her from growing past a certain age and it [[TearJerker tragically took her life]] at the age of 32.
* Overlapping with DudeLooksLikeALady: Hizaki, guitarist for Music/{{Versailles}}, is a 33-year-old man who can [[http://i47.tinypic.com/34xs4t5.jpg convincingly pass as a teenage girl]].
* Susanna Hoffs. [[http://chicago.timeout.com/articles/music/78398/matthew-sweet-and-susanna-hoffs-at-old-town-school-of-folk-music-concert-preview She's 50 in this picture]].
* Dexter Holland, Music/TheOffspring front man - the only thing about his appearance that has changed in the last 25 years is his hair style.
* Creator/KellyHu is 47 and looks 10-15 years younger. [[http://cdn56.fansshare.com/photos/kellyhu/kelly-hu-black-dress-la-premiere-valkyrie-kh-underclassmen-1791550610.jpg How many 47-year-old women look like this?]]
* Lead singer Hyde of Music/LArcEnCiel. In [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4emdd62NW1qcw4wjo1_1280.jpg this]] recent photo he is 43!
* One of the most common complaints, casting-wise, concerning ''Series/ModernFamily'' is the character of Haley Dunphy, who's supposed to be 16 at the start of the series but some say her character looks like "a tarted-up 12-year old." The actress portraying her, Sarah Hyland, is two years ''older'' than her. According to an interview in ''Nylon Magazine'', she was nearly rejected for the role on the grounds of being too old (she was 18 at the time), only for her manager to assure the casting director, "trust me, she does not look 18." There are even flame wars on her Website/IMDb page regarding her "real age."
* Koshi Inaba the vocalist of the famed J-Rock band, B'z is currently 47. [[http://www.saitoogata.com/ogata/photogallery/wp-content/uploads/2008/06/GQmobile1010-126.jpg This]] is one of his recent photos.
* From this [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1a/Jim_Inhofe%2C_official_photo_portrait%2C_2007.jpg official portrait]] (fairly recent; as it's from 2007) of Oklahoma Republican Senator Jim Inhofe. Inhofe is 79 years old but doesn't seem to look much older than 60.
* Creator/KikukoInoue often jokes about being 17. Even though she doesn't look 17, [[http://cdn.myanimelist.net/images/voiceactors/2/21045.jpg she still looks very young for a woman in her 50's.]]
* Creator/HughJackman still looks very good for a man in his mid-forties (born in 1968). In ''X-Men Origins: Wolverine'', his physique is just as impressive as it was when he made the first film ten years ago. Pretty fitting as Wolverine is over hundred years old and still fights like a man in his prime.
* Music/MichaelJackson, born 1958, really looked young and healthy while working on ''This Is It''. If you don't believe that: [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_2g66nvKFVk0/S6YPwcWTzEI/AAAAAAAAAII/WIjWJKWqOKw/s1600/orianthi_michael_orig_lr.jpg Take a look for yourself]] and you'll change your mind immediately!
* Creator/SamuelLJackson, born 1948, certainly does not look like someone who's 65 as of 2013. He looks a good 15 or 20 years younger than that. He wanted to be in the ''Franchise/StarWars'' prequels because he was blown away watching the first movie in its original theatrical 1977 release when he was '''twenty-eight'''. In ''Film/TheAvengers'', you would certainly never think he is thirty to thirty-five years older than most of his castmates. Which is especially funny as his character, Nick Fury, took a drug which greatly slowed the aging process and who is still at peak condition.
* Who knew JAMProject's Masaaki Endoh, Hiroshi Kitadani and Masami Okui are in their 40's?
* Philip Jeanmarie, who played Max in ''Series/PowerRangersWildForce'', was around the same age as his castmates, being 24 during filming. Max is supposed to be in his late teens, and Philip looked the part. He's still barely aged and is now in his 30s!
* Music/CarlyRaeJepsen is 26. She usually looks about 12, although depending on the angle and lighting she sometimes [[YoungerThanTheyLook looks more like 35]].
* Music/BillyJoel is 66, and he does look kind of old, but that's only because of the hair. The face has stayed the exact same as it was 25 years ago.
* [[http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0440229/ Vincent Kartheiser]], of ''MadMen'' and ''Series/{{Angel}}'', was born in 1979 but barely seems to have aged since the mid nineties when he was teen. Even then, he looked younger (Larry Clark asked to see his driver's license before hiring him for "Another Day In Paradise" as he didn't believe he was eighteen at the time).
* Jens Kidman of Music/{{Meshuggah}} is the oldest person in the band at age 49, but he looks about 10 years younger than that.
* Music/JoanJett absolutely counts. She was born in 1958 and looks the same age as people who were born when her first band formed.
** A picture taken in [[http://anchorshoppresents.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/joan_jett1.jpg 13 May 2013]]. Though, it is worth noting that [[http://static.tvgcdn.net/MediaBin/Galleries/Editorial/121022/1021_red_carpet/smallcrops/1021-red-carpet-joan-jett1sm.jpg other]] contemporary pictures can give a greater impression of age, she certainly doesn't look to be in her mid 50's.
* Aaron Johnson is 22 but could easily pass for a 15 or 16-year old. He's also a dad.
* Creator/AmyJoJohnson, another ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' alumnus, is in her forties, but looks half her age or even as young as her character Kimberly Anne Hart, the original Pink Ranger.
* Felicity Jones is 32, but she [[http://celebmafia.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/felicity-jones-ee-british-academy-awards-nominees-party-in-london.-feb.-2015_1.jpg looks to be in her early 20s at the oldest.]]
* Howard Jones of Devil You Know and formerly KillswitchEngage is 45, but looks like he's in his late 20s/early 30s.
* John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin looks like he's in his 40s, not his 60s [[http://media.blurt-online.com/40bk8wkEcuiG_m.jpg]]
* Milton Jones (British comedian) looks like he's in his late 30s. As of May 16th 2014, he is 50. This may have something to do with his deadpan style. Or his longish hair. [[https://www.google.com/search?q=milton+jones&newwindow=1&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=p9yKU7StLM-alQXWrIGYDQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg&biw=1440&bih=805#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=7-xyP4Y05Uj_rM%253A%3BF7T0ByqCos1q_M%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fmadeinbrighton.info%252Fwp-content%252Fuploads%252F2013%252F10%252FMiltonJones9.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fmadeinbrighton.info%252F2013%252F10%252F22%252Fmilton-jones-on-the-road%252F%3B1624%3B1721 This is him.]]
* Walter Jones, yet another ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' actor, aside from gaining a tiny bit of weight, hasn't aged ''at all'' since he was on the show at age 22. He's now ''44''.
* UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan turns 53 in February 2016, but he still looks pretty much the same as he did when he started in the NBA, and he was in his twenties back then.
* Kendra Kassebaum, especially for a pale-skinned blonde. At 39, she still looked early 20's-ish, [[DawsonCasting youthful enough to play Jovie]] in ''Film/{{Elf}}: The Musical''. She looks even younger than her 25 year-old castmate Jessica Skerritt (Deb).
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Europe_-_Building_Resilient_Institutions_Enda_Kenny_(8414763192).jpg This]] is Enda Kenny, [[UsefulNotes/PrimeMinistersOfIreland Taoiseach]] 2011-present, taken in 2013. He looks to be at most in his early 50s in that picture, right? Nope. When that photo was taken, he was 62--and Father of the Dail (longest-serving member of the legislature) at that.
* Heather Langenkamp is currently 50 but she doesn't look much older than when she played Nancy in the original ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet1984'', during principal filming she was 19.
* Paul Landers, rhythm guitarist of Music/{{Rammstein}}, is in his late 40s, but could easily pass for someone in his early 30s. [[http://www.gettyimages.nl/detail/nieuwsfoto%27s/paul-landers-of-german-hard-rock-group-rammstein-nieuwsfotos/132875943 This what he looked like at age 45.]]
* Music/AvrilLavigne is 28, but looks and acts at most 18.
* Bianca Lawson has been playing teenagers since she was one -- in 1994. [[http://prettylittleliars.alloyentertainment.com/happy-birthday-bianca-lawson-facts-pictures/#2 This is her latest turn from last year.]]
* Creator/NigellaLawson was 44 when [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nigella_Lawson_booksigning.jpg this picture]] has been taken, in 2004. [[http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Nigella+Lawson+Nigella+Lawson+Promotes+New+HKPf7zGrZIvl.jpg This]] is a picture from March 2011. She looks even ''better''.
* Music/DuranDuran lead singer Simon Le Bon is in his late 50s and yet he looks like he could pass for someone in their late 30s, which is nuts since he actually looks younger with facial hair.
* Creator/DenisLeary hasn't aged noticeably in about twenty years; particularly amazing considering he's a 54-year old Irish chain smoker.
* Creator/JenniferJasonLeigh is '''''50'''''! Look at her page picture, that's ''recent''.
* Lemmy of Music/{{Motorhead}}. Until shortly before his death from cancer at age 70 near the end of 2015, he looked like he could easily be in his mid to late 40's. This was despite his almost complete lack of healthy eating habits and constant alcohol problem. While his health was starting to deteriorate in his later years, his physical appearances said otherwise.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Jared_Leto_Soho.jpg Jared Leto]] is 43. There has to be [[Literature/ThePictureOfDorianGray a picture]] hidden in his attic.
* Joseph Gordon Levitt is now 30 but still has the same youthful face he had on ''3rd Rock From The Sun''.
* [[Music/{{Namgar}} Namgar Lhasaranova]] [[http://iplayer.fm/artist_images/28/66263.jpg looks to be somewhere in her thirties]], but her son is twenty, and she claims to have been already singing back in the 1980s. As with many other things about Namgar, her age remains an enigma.
* Thure Lindhardt is 38. As you can see, [[http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/ResNFNoKmT1/2013+Film+Independent+Spirit+Awards+Arrivals/bx0-kW4-erL/Thure+Lindhardt he really doesn't look it]].
* Ray Liotta. He was on record saying, "It's the oily skin. It gives you zits when you are a teenager, but then it doesn't wrinkle as you get older."
* James Lipton may not be the youngest man around, but he certainly doesn't look [[http://www.zimbio.com/photos/James+Lipton/2011+Riverkeeper+Fishermen+Ball/fXIR7JjWWVm 86]].
* Heather Locklear is 51, but looks 10 years younger.
* Alison Lohman could pass off as a teenager, if the dinner party scene in ''Film/DragMeToHell'' and ''Big Fish'' are anything to go by. Her character makes use of this in ''Matchstick Men''--the actress was 22 playing a girl of about 14/15.
* [[Music/{{Origin}} John Longstreth]] is pushing forty, but still looks like he's in his mid-twenties.
* JenniferLopez is in her 40s, but she looks at least 10-15 years younger.
* [[http://images.bwwstatic.com/upload5/226003/tn-500_luponewm17085126518166.jpg Patti LuPone]] as the forty-something Joanne in the 2011 New York Philharmonic production of ''{{Theatre/Company}}'', which was a week or two before her 62nd birthday.
* [[TheKarateKid Ralph Macchio]]. He was 23 when the original Karate Kid was shot, but looked around 15, and now he is 51, but looks like he's just a bit older than '''half that age'''.
** Even weirder, ''his voice hadn't even changed yet when the Karate Kid was shot!''
* When [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/MacArthur_Manila.jpg this picture]] was taken, General UsefulNotes/DouglasMacArthur was 65 years old and already seasoned by three wars. [[http://ww2db.com/image.php?image_id=3804 This]] is [[BadassGrandpa him at 70]] standing next to General Omar Bradley, who was 13 years younger. At the first glance, people would say the reverse was true.
* Andie [=MacDowell=] was born in 1958 but looks more like she was born in 1988. [[SincerityMode Seriously.]] She not only looks young for her age, but looked young for her age in ''Film/GroundhogDay'' and hasn't aged one bit. She's 55 as of 2013 and could be convincingly [[DawsonCasting cast as a teenager or college student]] and look more convincing than some 20-somethings who play teenagers.
* Gabriel Mann (Nolan from "Revenge") is 40
* Music/MarilynManson managed to be this until [=2009ish=], looking like [[http://www.thesparklingwiggles.com/images/manson.jpg this]] at age 37. And then he managed to beat decades of anorexia and proceeded [[http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/29564887/Marilyn+Manson++2009.jpg to gain an extra chin]]. Thankfully, he's starting to regress in age again, playing '''[[http://twitchfilm.com/assets_c/2013/01/wrong_cops_Marilyn_Manson_01-thumb-630xauto-36439.jpeg a teenager]]''' at the age of 43, and looking like he's in his [=mid-20s=] while doing so.
* Shirley Manson of {{Music/Garbage}} is 46 and looks around 30 - [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/2012/01/shirley_manson.jpg]]
* [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/63/Buffy_2x03.jpg This]] is Creator/JamesMarsters in his first appearance as Spike on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', already fitting this trope at age 34. ''[[http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMjg5NzM1OTMwOV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDg4NDkzMQ@@._V1._SY314_CR18,0,214,314.jpg This]]'' is James Marsters at his present age of '''50'''.
* Stephanie March is 40, but doesn't look a day older than when she first appeared in Law and Order: SVU at the age of 26.
* Music/BrunoMars is turning 30 in 2015, but looks teenaged or in his early 20s at most.
* Creator/DemetriMartin was born in 1973, making him 40 in 2013. In his early 30s, he was brought on ''Series/TheDailyShow'' to host a recurring segment about America's youth culture.
* [[http://jessicaerinmartin.com/ Jessica Erin Martin]], famous for voicing Samus Aran in the [[MetroidOtherM most recent]] ''{{Metroid}}'' game, is about mid-20's, but looks 14-15, although she somehow was deemed "too old" when she auditioned to play an 18-year old role.
* Steve Martin's white hair has given him a noticeably ageless look. He looks like he could be a lot younger than 68.
* Chris Matthews of MSNBC appears to be in his early 40s but is [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4b/Chris_Matthews_and_Kathleen_Matthews_2010_Time.jpg 64]].
* Lauren Mayberry of {{Music/CHVRCHES}} is 26 but could very well pass as a girl in its [[http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/500/87875663/Lauren%2BMayberry%2BLaurenMayberry011.png mid-]] [[http://www.metalsucks.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Lauren-Mayberry.jpg to late]] [[http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/webimage/1.3148378.1382094669!/image/4102429184.jpg_gen/derivatives/articleImgDeriv_628px/4102429184.jpg teens]].
* Creator/JamesMcAvoy appears a few years younger than his actual age. [[http://www.dyrt.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/jm.jpg This picture]] was taken in 2013 where he looks like he's in his mid-twenties (he was 34 at the time). [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/ce1f78f03c36fc09d1abf85a20c22472/tumblr_nbmykajvth1qd4yhbo1_1280.jpg This collage]] also demonstrates that his face has hardly changed over an eleven-year period.
* Jack [=McBrayer=] of ''30Rock'' is 38 but doesn't look past his mid-twenties. His character Kenneth is implied to be about 350 years old.
* PaulMcCartney is 73 (born in June 1942) but doesn't look older than mid fifties.
* If you can get past [[BoobsOfSteel her rack]] JennetteMcCurdy, 22 as of 2014, still looks like a teenager.
* Creator/PaulMcGann is fifty-four, but doesn't look much different than his 37-year-old stint as [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] in 1996.
* Music/RebaMcEntire looks ''way'' too young for 60. Early 40s, maybe.
* Danica [=McKellar=] once [[http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTI3NzI3NTQwMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTYwODk2MTkz._V1_SX640_SY720_.jpg looked about her age]], a month and a half short of 25 years old, toward the end of 1999. Her looks seem to have frozen in time since then. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-cazxAL_tU Here she is]] over 14 years later, hosting the first edition of a new Nerdist video series called ''Math Bites'', all the while looking like she hasn't aged a day.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_McPartlin Anthony McPartlin]], of the English comedy and television presenting duo Ant & Dec, with the other being Declan Donnelly, was born on November 15, 1975. This [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Anthony_McPartlin_%282009%29.jpg picture of him from 2009]] certainly does not make him look like he was 34 at the time, looking at least 10 years younger than that.
* Music/MeatLoaf is 67 and could easily pass for his mid-fifties at the latest.
* Idina Menzel. One look at [[http://images.uulyrics.com/cover/i/idina-menzel/album-i-stand.jpg this image]] and I think most would be shocked to know she's 42.
* Music/{{Eminem}} is 43. Even ''with'' his noticeable signs of aging, he could still pass for his 20s - keep in mind also that he spent most of the 2000s decade hooked on prescription drugs.
* Can anyone believe that voice actor VicMignogna is already 49 as of this writing?
* Reggie Miller's Hall-of-Fame NBA career mostly coincided with the NBA career of UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan (see above). In photos of them on the court during games between the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers with both of them side-by-side Reggie Miller always looked like an underweight and scrawny teenager because Michael Jordan is about an inch shorter, about 30-40 lbs heavier, and much more muscular.
* Creator/WentworthMiller is 41 but looks like early 30's.
* [[http://indianyouth.org/about-us/about-billy-mills This]] is Billy Mills (born June 30, 1938), a [[UsefulNotes/NativeAmericans Native American]] runner who in 1964 became the only American ever to win Olympic gold in the 10,000 meters. Even in the picture where he looks oldest (top right of the page), he still looks somewhere in his 50s. Farther down the page is a picture of him receiving an award from President Obama in 2012. Does this look like a man in his ''mid-70s''?
* [[TheAndyMilonakisShow Andy Milonakis]], born January 30, 1976, has a congenital growth hormone condition that makes him look and sound like a teenage boy, despite being '''37''' as of 2013. Here's a [[http://www.imdb.com/media/rm2095888640/nm1429102 picture of him from 2011]], on the set of {{Waiting}}.
* Music/KylieMinogue is '''47'''. [[http://i.imgur.com/vBHKH75.jpg Do you believe it?]]
* Creator/ElizabethMitchell is 42, but looks no older than 30, with some guesses as low as 22.
* [[http://www.odditycentral.com/pics/masako-mizutani-japans-lady-of-eternal-youth.html?utm_source=scribol.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=scribol.com Masako Mizutani.]] It's no wonder why they're calling her "Japanís Lady of Eternal Youth." She's a 43 year old mother of two but in the picture looks less than half that age.
* Creator/NanaMizuki is seriously in her mid-30's but looks younger and prettier with each year. [[http://i.ytimg.com/vi/1isyXdnEwdw/maxresdefault.jpg She's at least 34 in this picture]] but easily looks about 16.
* Creator/DemiMoore is in her 50s now but looks at least 10 years younger.
* Creator/JulianneMoore is ''51'', and [[http://media.onsugar.com/files/2011/02/05/3/346/3463885/3082cd1fa241e97f_juliannemoore_talbots_spring2011_ad3.jpg hasn't aged noticeably]] [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2010/08/23/article-1305332-0AD863D4000005DC-253_306x420.jpg in almost twenty years]]. This is especially bizarre when you consider how white her skin is; skin that pale generally doesn't age well. Also, her face tends to emote very well in movies, which is ''really'' hell on your skin. The only possible explanation at this point is she's a vampire.
* Creator/RogerMoore was 45 when he was first cast as Film/JamesBond in the 70s. Moore is, in fact, 3 years older than Creator/SeanConnery, yet he looked much younger. That said, Moore started looking his age by the time his ''Bond'' tenure ended over a decade later.
* Throughout the 90s and early 00s, Thurston Moore from SonicYouth looked like he was in his early twenties while he actually was in his 30s and 40s, respectively. This applies to his bandmates as well, but then again, given the name of their band...
* Despite being born in 1953, Creator/RickMoranis [[http://i2.listal.com/image/196632/600full-rick-moranis.jpg looked like he never aged past the age of 26]]. Being 5'4'' in height helps. Nowadays, he's in his sixties, but in some pictures he would look no older than 45 like in [[http://www.listal.com/viewimage/6242765 this one]], and in others, [[ZigZaggingTrope he will actually look his age]].
* RageAgainstTheMachine guitarist Tom Morello is nearing 50 years old despite not looking older than his late thirties.
* Stephen Morris from NewOrder doesn't look like he's in his fifties.
* Creator/SentaMoses turned 40 in 2013, but can [[https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.551984341560975.1073741836.137687406324006&type=3 still reasonably pass for someone in her early 20's]].
* The former president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, is 82 and looks like he's in his fifties.
* Comedian Creator/JohnMulaney is 32, but looks around 10 years younger. His voice doesn't really sound younger though. He discusses this in his comedy special, saying that he looks like an extremely stressed out child.
* Frankie Muniz. He was 17 when he played Cody Banks, playing a 15-year old character who looked like he was twelve. He's now 27, and is ''just starting'' to look a bit less like a kid in his early teens.
* Creator/AudieMurphy's birthdate is [[MultipleChoicePast somewhat debated]], but it's generally agreed that he had earned all his combat medals by the time he was twenty, looking younger than that, and was probably at least twenty-five when he got his first lead role...as a teenaged delinquent in the b-movie ''Bad Boy''. He spent the next few years as TheTropeKid in various westerns, and then as a thirty-year-old, he played his wartime self moderately convincingly in ''To Hell And Back''. He moved away from late-teens characters after that, but continued to play naive, early-twenties characters fairly convincingly til about 1961, by which point he was in his mid-to-late thirties. He got considerably more weathered-looking after that, due to his outdoorsy lifestyle and the insomnia caused by his [[ShellShockedVeteran PTSD]].
* Creator/CillianMurphy. It is VERY hard to pin his age down. He's 36.
* Eddie Murphy just turned 52, but he still looks mostly the same as he did in his 20's.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttjh3TtO9Qk&feature=related In this video]] is actor Mitchel Musso, who is pranking one of his fans on a TV show. Watch the video and try to guess whether Mitchel or the fan is older. Done? Get this: Mitchel is ''20'', and the fan is only 15.
* Recurring Creator/CirqueDuSoleil contortionist Iuliia Mykhailova, at 27 going on 28, still looks like a 14-ish year old, suitable for playing the [[DawsonCasting teenage]] heroine Miranda in ''Amaluna'' (2012-2013).
* Dave Navarro of Music/JanesAddiction and Music/RedHotChiliPeppers doesn't seem to have aged at all in twenty years. He's now pushing 45 and looks in his early thirties at most. This is despite being a member of two of the hardest rocking bands of the last twenty years and having taking an extreme amount of narcotics.
* [[http://cdn1.btrstatic.com/pics/showpics/large/90578_M1roLdLk.jpg Ted Neeley]] is 72, but could easily pass for early or mid fifties. He also looked ridiculously young when he played the title role in Music/JesusChristSuperstar . Even with the facial hair he looked like he'd just come [[http://www.celestialhealing.com/blogimages/TedNeeleySuperstarJesus.jpg straight out of high school]].
* Creator/LiamNeeson looks like he's about 45, despite being 61.
* [[http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/Olivia+Newton+John+Celebs+Few+Best+Men+Premiere+kIhTsdVhMNql.jpg Olivia Newton-John]] turns 65 in 2013. She looks 40.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stevie_Nicks#mediaviewer/File:Stevie_Nicks_-_In_Your_Dreams_Premiere_March_2013_(cropped).jpg Stevie Nicks]] is 66 years old, and only recently has looked like she's a day over 30. And this is despite past addictions to cocaine and prescription painkillers. Several UrbanFantasy novel protagonists have speculated that she must have Fae blood.
* Music/BrittNicole is 29, and her album covers made her look progressively more mature over time. Then her third album was re-released and the new cover makes her look younger than she did when first debuting... at 23.
* Creator/LeonardNimoy might be one of the most curious examples on this page: He actually used to look even older than his age... that is until he turned 82 and seemingly decided to ''reverse'' his aging process � but [[http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130131045160/memoryalpha/en/images/2/22/Leonard_Nimoy.jpg see for]][[http://latimesherocomplex.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/startrekintodarkness-premiere-leonard-nimoy1.jpg%3Fw%3D600 yourself]]. No "Trek Science" here, just the undeniable benefits of a full head of hair. Sadly, he didn't last much longer, as he passed away in February 2015 at 83.
* Takanori Nishikawa, aka TMRevolution: he is 5'3" and maintains the appearance of someone in their early 20's...but in reality he'll be '''40''' come September 2010. It's been said that he's so short because he didn't eat properly as a child. His youth despite his age is practically [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/280px-CLOUDNINETMRpromo_2114.jpg Bishounen level]].
* ChuckNorris looks like he's in his early 40s but he's 74. See [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/de/Chuck_Norris_200611292256.jpg this picture taken when he was 66]], or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKYlARdbU1o this commercial]] for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', shot when he was ''71''.
** [[MemeticBadass The Passage of Time just knows better than to defile the majesty that is Chuck Norris' face.]]
* Lee Norris was 22 when he started playing 16-year-old Mouth [=McFadden=] on ''Series/OneTreeHill'', and was the only person on the show who actually looked like a high school student despite being the same age as or a bit older than most of the other main cast members. Even after the TimeSkip when the characters are supposed to be the same age as their actors, he ''still'' looked like a teenager. Today, he's in his 30s and has hardly aged at all!
** Not nearly to the extent of Norris, but Chad Michael Murray, another ''One Tree Hill'' cast member, was in his early-to-mid-20's during his time on the show, and hasn't aged a whole lot since despite being 34 as of 2015.
* [[Creator/LupitaNyongO Lupita Nyong'o]] of ''Film/TwelveYearsASlave'' fame looks to be in her early 20's at the most. She's ''thirty-one.''
* Chris O'Donnell of ''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' fame is 42 but his face has hardly aged!
* Creator/MasiOka, being of Asian decent and only 5'6", counts as well, and seems to end up in a lot of DawsonCasting because of it (though his characters' age is rarely a plot point, when mentioned, it tends to be many years behind his own).
** He was 32 when he started playing [[{{Series/Heroes}} Hiro]], who, [[PlotHole depending on the episode]], was either 24 or 28. He actually looked his character's age more than his own.
** His character [[Series/{{HawaiiFive0}} Max]] hasn't been given a specified age, but we know his biomom was killed in the 80s, making it ''likely'' that he's intended to be younger than his actual actor's age (he certainly still looks in his [=mid/late-twenties=] despite pushing forty). [[http://westy5oh.wordpress.com/2013/11/03/h50-4-06-kupouli-la-broken/406-45/ His love interest]] is played by an actress ''more than a decade his junior'' and the couple are neither treated as nor look like a MayDecemberRomance.
** In ''Searching For Sonny'', he plays a 28-year-old despite being 37 at the time of filming. He also plays the 18-year-old version of his character in flashbacks, and a present-day photo is used as his high school graduation picture. Compared to [[http://www.snakkle.com/galleries/before-they-were-famous-stars-celebrity-cast-tv-show-hawaii-five-o-photos-then-and-now/masi-oka-yearbook-high-school-young-1992-hawaii-five-o-2011-photo-split/ his actual high school photo]], though, the greatest difference seems to be in ''[[GeekPhysiques pounds]]'' rather than years (though you could certainly make the argument that 18-year-old Oka could pass for eight or ten due to being so small).
* Adepero Oduye, star of ''Film/{{Pariah}}'', plays a 16-year old girl. She's ''33''. Her on-screen mom Kim Waynes (AKA The Wayans Sister) could count too, seeing as she's 50.
* Dave Padden from Annihilator is 36 but appears to be in his 20s.
* [[http://carriepaff.com/CarriePaff/Home.html Carrie Paff]] looks about 15-20 years younger than her actual age (late 30s/early 40's). Blondes don't usually age that well.
* Creator/HaydenPanettiere is likely to look like a teenager for a long time to come (she's 24). Being known for her [[TeensAreShort lack of height]] adds to this.
** Oddly, during her run on ''Series/{{Heroes}}'', when she was 18-19, some people thought she was [[YoungerThanTheyLook in her late 20's]]. This was even alluded to when she was a victim in a ''Series/{{Punkd}}'' prank when a teen boy's mom confronted her about dating him.
* Creator/EllenPage is 25, but she could easily pass off as a teenager (and does, in several of the films she's in).
* SarahPalin looks about 30, too young to be Bristol's mother, but turned ''50'' in February 2014.
* Jeffrey Parazzo (a.k.a. [[Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder Trent Fernandez]]) was ''26'' when he was filming his parts as the White Ranger, though most bystanders would [[http://images.wikia.com/powerrangers/images/1/11/DT_Trent_Fernandez.jpg probably assume he was in his late teens.]] Even today, he's 34 but could still pass for his mid-to-late-twenties.
* Creator/LanaParrilla looks to have been frozen in time during her mid-twenties, and successfully plays a girl in her late teens ([[https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/f6/46/38/f6463823db5a5676664bce7ab01d8fb0.jpg Young Regina]] on ''Series/OnceUponATime''). But even when she's not playing Regina's younger self -- well, does [[https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/476857008260276225/mA_6UEVc.png she look ]] ''37'' to you??
* Grace Park is ''41 years old'' as of March 2015... hard to believe, isn't it?
* Korean IdolSinger Sandara Park is pushing her ''thirties'', [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-0hZ5xblI9Ps/TzmZvxxTafI/AAAAAAAACEY/Fs_yz763gwg/s1600/sandara+park.jpg but looks]][[http://24.media.tumblr.com/4bf6c609c9a4cbbeb3b31c7adaeef4dc/tumblr_mh19wxpS4a1s33yqko1_500.png way younger]]. When she debuted as a member of GirlGroup [[Music/TwoNEOne 2NE1]], no one would have thought that she actually was 10 years older than then-''15 years old'' fellow group member Minzy, even because she tends to act and sound like a teenage girl on a sugar high.
* Creator/JimParsons was born in March 1973. He looks, at the most, maybe 25.
* [[http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article2233878.ece Alfie Patten]]. The story of a 13-year old being a father is unsettling enough, but when he looks like he's even YOUNGER than that... [[http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/article2435283.ece But it turned out he isn't the father.]]
* The late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno until about 2007 looked no older than 50, despite being 80 at the time. But injuries from being very involved in practice (despite allegations of him being a powerless figurehead) have allowed for accidents to happen. After a myriad of injuries, he still didn't look 85, but instead closer to 70.
* Creator/AaronPaul is 34 at the moment, but he could still easily pass as being in his mid-twenties.
* Adrian Paul looks pretty good for a man in his early 50's. But then, he IS the Highlander... Here he is just before his 54th birthday - he looks around 40! [[http://www.starpulse.com/Actors/Paul,_Adrian/gallery/REE-000621/]]
* Does [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball Pelé]] look like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pele_-_World_Economic_Forum_Annual_Meeting_Davos_2006.jpg the guy in his SEVENTIES that he is]]?! [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pelé_África_do_Sul_2010_3.jpg Nope.]] Man's freaking [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk_AKrGCS2E aging ''backwards'']].
* Piper Perabo is almost 40, but looks and sounds like she's 16. It's not just that she looks like she could play a 16 year old; she legitimately looks like and has the voice of a high school junior. People often thought she was a teenager during the height of her career (late 90's/early 00's). She was born in 1976.
* Pinetop Perkins, the oldest person to win a Grammy, lived to be 97, but looked like he was in his mid-to-late-60s.
* Pauley Perrette is ''46''. The character she plays on ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' is [[DawsonCasting at least ten years younger]].
* Creator/BernadettePeters is 65 but could 100% pass for 30, younger with the right makeup. It's become an inside joke in the Broadway community that she does not age. Here's a recent photograph: [[http://images.starpulse.com/Photos/pv/Bernadette%20Peters-4.JPG]]
* Cassandra Peterson, better known as Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark, is 61 but looks at least twenty years younger. In the linked picture she's 59, but looks around half that age. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/21/Cassandra_Peterson_by_Gage_Skidmore.jpg]]
* [[http://media.englishrussia.com/new_images/redstarsmodel-7.jpg Russian model Olga Petrova]] is a mom who is 41, but looks a lot better than many women half that age.
* If you go to the Website/YouTube video of Kate Pierson and REM singing [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=we_bSR3wrgY Shiny Happy People]], you'll almost certainly see a commenter hitting on her. She was 42 when the video came out, and is currently 64. This [[http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/dwczCBJ4Ecs/2012+Winter+TCA+Tour+Day+1/EhTMz6B2S0b/Kate+Pierson]] picture was taken in 2012 and she looks twenty years younger than her actual age at least.
* [[http://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Rene-Pinochet/ Rene Pinochet]], a Chilean voice actor (best known as [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Aang]]), is in his mid-30's, yet he still looks and sounds like a child.
* BradPitt turned ''fifty'' in December 2013. When he appeared in ''Film/TheAssassinationOfJesseJamesByTheCowardRobertFord'', he was aged up by makeup even though Jesse James was ten years younger than Pitt was at the time, although James' lifestyle made him look older. Although he has recently started to look middle-aged in his roles, he still looks much younger than other actors his age or younger.
* A cosplayer by the name of Joyce Poring, who lives in the Philippines, is nearing 20. She looks more like 10! [[http://ohmygumiho.deviantart.com/ See for yourself]]. She is well aware of it and uses it to her advantage, cosplaying chaarcters like the notoriously short and cute Taiga from ''LightNovel/{{Toradora}}'', among others.
* NataliePortman is 31 now, and still looks and sounds 20 years old.
* Kyla Pratt. She's 24 (as of this writing) but would you know that if you saw [[http://hellobeautiful.com/gossip-news/iliana-rabun-wood/gallery-kyla-pratt-grows-up-on-the-cover-of-tight-rope/ her]] walking down the street? This actually leads to the "[[ContractualPurity Prisoners of Pollyanna]]" problem, in that Pratt was a prominent younger actress, but because she looks younger than her age, some people expect her to ''act'' younger than her age.
* British politician [[http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/01550/JohnPrescott_1550290c.jpg John Prescott]], despite his not inconsiderable girth, doesn't look his age. He's seventy-six. He looks maybe twenty years younger than that.
* {{Prince}} is in his 50s (56 to be exact, as of this writing), but he still looks the same way he did in the 1980s (which I'm guessing is around late-20s into 30).
* [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/04/Ron_Reagan.jpg This]] is Ron Reagan (and before you ask, yes, he's related to ''[[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan that]]'' [[UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan Reagan]].) You'll probably peg him in his 30s, or ''maybe'' late 20s. He's actually 55.
* Eddie Redmayne, 31 as of the time of writing this (November 2013), looks like he could easily be ten years younger than his real age - he plays a 20-year-old in ''Birdsong'', and [[http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/02117/BIRDSONG_2117629c.jpg looks completely convincing]].
** Clémence Poésy, Eddie's costar in ''Birdsong'', is only just 30 but looks like she's in her early twenties.
* [[http://www.seventeen.com/cm/seventeen/images/io/sev-when-i-was-17-crystal-reed-001-de.jpg Crystal Reed]], who plays the 17-year-old Allison Argent on ''TeenWolf'' at the age of 29.
* [[http://loyalkng.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/Keanu-Reeves-Is-Imortal-His-Anti-Aging-Conspiracies-are-Revealed..jpg Keanu Reeves]] doesn't seem to have aged at all since the nineties and sure doesn't look like he was born in 1964. In fact, some people think he is immortal and it isn't as crazy a theory as it sounds.
* After seeing him as Hawkeye in ''[[{{Film/TheAvengers}}The Avengers]]'', you probably wouldn't have guessed that Jeremy Renner is nearly 42.
* Paul Reubens (better known as Pee-wee Herman) was in his late twenties when he created his popular ManChild character. Nearly twenty years later, when he made a career comeback by appearing as a superhero in ''Film/MysteryMen'' he seemed barely to have aged at all despite being nearly 50. He's about 60 now and his face has begun to show some cracks, but with the right makeup he can still get away with portraying the Pee-wee character.
* Creator/ChristinaRicci just turned 33 as of 2013. She once complained she usually feels especially vulnerable in regards to her personal safety and security, as she not only looks like child-like, she remains the size of one per contemporary US standards. In her late-teens, she could still be[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sleepy_hollow_ver2.jpg mistaken]] as someone a decade younger, if this film poster was any indication!
* Music/LionelRichie anyone? The man seems to have avoided the aging process since the 80s.
* Condoleezza Rice is 59, but she looks much younger.
* CliffRichard is 73 but looks like a man in his 50s. Not for nothing is he known as the "PeterPan" of pop music. This picture [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/08/Cliff_Richard_performs_at_State_Theatre%3B_Sydney%2C_Australia_%282%29.jpg]] was taken in 2013.
* Denise Richards turned 44 in February 2015. She just escapes the aging process, too.
* [[Music/TheRollingStones Keith Richards]], while not the world's most attractive man, certainly doesn't look like he's almost 70. Of course, the reason for this is obvious; [[TheAlcoholic he's well preserved]].
* Creator/AlanRickman was just shy of 70 when he died. Seriously. 70. He's best known worldwide as Severus Snape from the Franchise/HarryPotter films - a role landed when he was 55. In book canon, Snape's character would have been about '''31''' at the beginning, and 38 at the end. Although it appears there was an AgeLift done on the movie portrayals of the characters, Snape's character was probably still portrayed as mid-forties at most at the end of the film series - at which point Alan Rickman pulled off Snape convincingly and ''awesomely'' at age 64.
* Italo-disco diva [[http://www.tizianarivale.com/ Tiziana Rivale]] is ''51'' (almost as old as {{Music/Madonna}}), but looks late 20's or 30's.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kathleen_Robertson Kathleen Robertson]], known for her roles on ''Series/BeverlyHills90210'' and ''Boss'', is 40 years old. She can easily pass as a girl in her early 20's however.
* Kimmy Robertson was 36 when she appeared on ''''Series/TwinPeaks'' and appeared in various commercials throughout the late 80s/early 90s. Because of her high pitched voice and stereotypical 80s hair/outfits, she looked like she could pass for a twenty something. Pushing 60, she looks like she could be in her mid 40s to early 50s. http://www.zimbio.com/Kimmy+Robertson
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mitt_Romney_by_Gage_Skidmore_6.jpg Mitt Romney]] is 66, but looks more like he's in his 40's or (maybe) 50's.
* [[http://www.carolroscoe.com/Site/About_Me.html Carol Roscoe]](late 30's/early 40's), who has lately played several DawsonCasting roles, including Sheri in ''Pilgrims Musa and Sheri in the New World''.
* French comedian [[http://mag.agendaculturel.fr/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/anne_roumanoff_reference.jpg Anne Roumanoff]] is 46 and looks a lot younger.
* Morgan Rowe, a popular Seattle stage actress, not to be confused with others with the same name, 40's, looks about 15-20 years younger.
* ''[[FerrisBuellersDayOff Ferris Bueller]]'' fans are usually rightly flabbergasted when they find out that Alan Ruck was ''29'' when he played, and legitimately looked the age of, 18-year-old Cameron Frye. [[http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-62Qmxgf-lh8/UA7eCGGlAEI/AAAAAAAAE8k/AjFjLXi-KjY/s640/alan+ruck.jpg He now looks his current age]] (58 as of July 2014), however.
* This is Creator/PaulRudd in [[http://cdn0.hark.com/images/000/008/068/8068/original.0 1995]], then almost 10 years later, in [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_eSQ6iz6V9rA/R2aJ2UcXIfI/AAAAAAAAAHs/GZoQ7ytwwlo/s400/2337278.jpg 2004]], in [[http://geektyrant.com/storage/page-images/Rudd%20Mann%20Knocked.jpeg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1294383936846 2007]],in [[http://cdn1.hark.com/images/000/008/325/8325/original.0 2009]], and now [[http://www.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article684748.ece/BINARY/Jennifer+Aniston+and+Paul+Rudd+grace+the+cover+of+GQs+March+2012+issue this year (2012)]]. As of this day, the man is 43, and since 20 years the only thing that changed is his hair. Not only can he still pass as being in his mid-twenties: he stopped growing older in his mid-twenties!
* Creator/WinonaRyder just turned forty. If not for her being in the business for over twenty years, it would be easy to think she was closer to thirty.
* Creator/MasahiroSakurai, the creator of ''Franchise/{{Kirby}}'' and ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', is 43 as of 2013, yet [[http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/2803447/masahiro_sakurai.jpg looks]]...thirty...twenty...something. He just seems to never age.
* Filipina singer/actress Lea Salonga looked barely into her teens when she originated the role of Kim in MissSaigon. She was 17 when she auditioned, 18 when the show opened. Now 39, she could easily pass for mid-20's.
* [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Andy Samberg]] is 34, but doesn't look or act a day over 19.
** His ''Music/TheLonelyIsland'' co-star Jorma Taccone is even more noticeable. He was born in 1977 but looks no older than his mid-twenties at most. He even played Andy Samberg's younger brother in ''Film/HotRod'' despite being a year older.
* Thomas Brodie Sangster, as of 2014, is still mistaken for - and often cast as - a teenager. He was 24 when he appeared in ''Film/TheMazeRunner'' but didn't look a day over 16. Particularly startling in Series/GameOfThrones, where he and costar Isaac Hempstead Wright looked almost exactly the same age despite a ''9-year'' age difference (Wright was 13-14, Sangster was 22-23).
** This was somehow even more noticeable when he was younger. He was 12 or 13 when filming ''Film/LoveActually'', but looked like he was ''maybe'' 8.
** Same with when he voiced Ferb
%%* Creator/SusanSarandon
* KenjiSawada between 1983-1997, when he seemed to alternate between looking like someone in his early 20s and early thirties. Of course, not letting his beard grow out and staying clean-shaven until 2013 may have a part in this, as well as his heavy use of VisualKei makeup and clothing in those 15 years.
* [[LacunaCoil Cristina Scabbia]] is now 40 and looks no older than her mid twenties.
* If Music/BobSeger (who is currently 70) were to dye his hair and remove his glasses, he would look exactly the same as he did in his late thirties.
* Atticus Shaffer is 13 but looks ''eight'' - actually, he has IV Osteogenesis Imperfecta, so as a result, he's a lot shorter than average.
* Music/{{Shakira}} was born in 1977. Throughout her entire career, she could have easily passed for a teenager. Being barely 4'11" tall also helps.
* Creator/WilliamShatner is in his eighties but could pass for a man thirty years younger. (The photo on his page is fairly current.) Consider that he's actually four days ''older'' than Creator/LeonardNimoy (who, by the time he passed away, looked good for being in his eighties but was visibly elderly)...
* Singer and talk-show host Dinah Shore can be seen in this [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGKO0s64leM mid-1980s spot for Holly Farms chicken]]. For those looking, she was pushing '''70''' at the time.
* Creator/JakeShort of ''Series/ANTFarm'' is 16, but his lack of height and short stature combined with his then childish voice make him look at most 12. Even looking at his castmates Music/ChinaAnneMcClain and Creator/SierraMcCormick, it's ''really'' hard to believe he's older than both of them. Think about this: Creator/StefanieScott, who plays the 16-17 year old Lexi on the show, is only ''5 months older than him''. It took the 2nd half of his 16-year old life for his voice to finally break.
* Creator/SarahSilverman is 41 - [[http://static.wetpaint.me/network/ROOT/photos/140690227-4539369416381811593.jpg this is a 2012 picture]]. She looks a decade younger.
* Director Creator/BryanSinger was 48 years old when he was interviewed for featurettes on the Blu-Ray release for ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'', but he could easily be mistaken for mid-thirties.
* For a long time, [[http://www.newreleasetuesday.com/artistdetail_photodetail.php?gallery_id=246_id=138&photo_id=5432&page=1 Michael W. Smith]] (born in 1957) hardly looked a day over 30. Now that he's nearing 60, he's aged a little... to hardly a day over 40.
* Slash of Music/GunsNRoses doesn't seem to have aged at all since the 1980's. He's now 48 but doesn't look older than his early thirties. It helps that he has dressed exactly the same way since that time.
* Creator/WillSmith still looks remarkably baby-faced in his 40's.
%%* Pretty much nobody on the face of this darn planet will ever be 100% convinced that Music/LittleRichard is in his 80s (born in December 1932). [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/16/Little_Richard_in_2007.jpg This is a fairly recent photo of him.]] He looks to be in his early 50s ''at most'', despite having no plastic surgery.
* Dee Snider, of Music/TwistedSister fame, is 60 yet [[http://media.timeout.com/images/101448069/660/370/image.jpg simply doesn't age]]. When the music video for "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" was filmed, he looked [[http://images2.mtv.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:194933?width=657&height=370&crop=true&quality=0.85 exactly]] the [[http://vimg.tu.tv/imagenes/videos/t/w/twisted-sister-we-re-not-gonna-take-it_1_1_imagenGrande1.jpg same]] as he did in the video for "We're Not Gonna Take It" which was filmed over 20 years earlier. Though to be fair, he's always looked like he was in his forties even in his younger days.
* Though he ''might'' have had a few slight nips & tucks on his face, Rick Springfield is like [[http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f226/SpukiKitty/PICS%20for%20Web%20Forums/rick_zpsff9dbb22.png "65 going on 40".]]
* Dylan and Cole Sprouse are 22 but appear to be in their late teens.
* RingoStarr just turned 73 years old, but he looks 50 at most.
* Current Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens used to coach the Butler University Bulldogs. When they made the Final Four in 2010, he was constantly being asked which position he played. He was 34 at the time.[[note]]They made the Final Four in 2011, but by that time the jig was up...[[/note]]
* LLCoolJ (James Todd Smith) is in his early 40's, but doesn't look much older than 30.
* Anyone who caught his cameo on ''30 Rock'' would probably be surprised to learn that Aaron Sorkin is fifty.
* GwenStefani. Does she look like she was born in 1969 and has three children? Summed up by her playing 19-year-old Creator/JeanHarlow in ''TheAviator''. Not only was she [[DawsonCasting 34 at the time]], she was also eight years older than Miss Harlow was when she ''passed away''. Of course her seeming agelessness has made Mrs. Stefani an absolute tabloid and magazine darling over the last decades.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Stephanopoulos George Stephanopoulos]], born in 1961.
* Pamela Stephenson (wife of Creator/BillyConnolly) is 62 - she looks at least twenty years younger as can be seen is this photo - [[http://www.contactmusic.com/pics/lf/lfw_matthew_willaimson_front_row_190212/pamela-stephenson-london-fashion-week---autumnwinter-2012---matthew_3739095.jpg]]
* Richard Sterban of Music/TheOakRidgeBoys is in his 70s, but looks [[http://www.tvrage.com/person/id-353033/Richard+Sterban about half that]].
* Creator/PatrickStewart is 72, but could easily pass for 50's. Hell, look at the first episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in which he's 47, and you'd be hard-pressed to tell him apart from today. Despite some extra wrinkles and filling out a bit, he looked like the same old bald man we know and love when he was in his 30's. Which makes the younger, full haired cadet seen in the episode ''Tapestry'' hilarious.
** Just take [[http://www.collegehumor.com/post/6993683/quiz-when-was-this-picture-of-patrick-stewart-taken the quiz.]] The only way to tell is if you recognize the source of each picture.
* Safe to say, few would think model/actress Alana Stewart (known mainly for her being the ex-wife of rocker Music/RodStewart and actor George Hamilton) [[http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3195720/Ageless-beauty-Alana-Stewart-looks-far-younger-70-years-heads-dinner-lace-blouse.html was 70]] looking at her.
* Music/RodStewart himself is doing very well for a 70 year old - he looks at least 20 years younger. [[http://www.thetelegram.com/media/photos/unis/2015/02/26/2015-02-26-11-26-04-TEL-26022015-RodtheBod-SUB.jpg]]
* [[ThePolice Sting]] is 62 and doesn't look much older than 45. Must be all the tantric sex.
* Regardless of whether it's due to expert plastic surgery or really fortunate genes, one would probably be shocked if they knew that the lovely Creator/MerylStreep is 64.
* Keith Strickland of The B-52's has not aged visibly at all for much of his life, which is largely down to his healthy lifestyle (he's a buddhist, vegetarian and keeps constantly active). The only visible difference is that he has shorter hair these days. Cindy Wilson also looks extremely good for her age, having been a mother.
* Sarah Stiles (Joanne in ''Vanities: The Musical'', as well as Lucy and Kate Monster in ''Theatre/AvenueQ'') is 32 (30 at the time of the off-Broadway production of the former), but looks and sounds teenage.
* A certain prominent politician from [[UsefulNotes/ThatSouthEastAsianCountry a certain South East Asian country]] qualifies. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Burma_3_150_cropped.jpg This]] is her in 1995, and [[http://arabnews.com/world/article189419.ece/REPRESENTATIONS/large_620x350/WOR_Suukyi.jpg this]] is her immediately after release from house arrest in 2010. And she was 65 at her release.
* Voice actress Creator/TaraStrong is over 40, but looks like she's in her late 20s. And this is after getting marrried, and having two kids.
** Has made fun of this in her tweets
* Arika Takarano, the lead singer of ALI PROJECT. [[http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs26/f/2008/151/c/d/Arika_Takarano_is_LOVE_by_joelestrange.jpg She looks like this.]]. She also turned ''fifty'' in 2013 (she was born in 1963).
* Creator/DavidTennant. Take a nice long look at his picture. He's 40.
* If Creator/EmmaThompson is ''53'', then whoever posted this is MickeyMouse.
* Creator/TiffanyThornton from ''Series/SoRandom'' looks about 16-19 years old, but is actually 26.
* Creator/JenniferTilly, 54, looks like she's in her 30s.
* Music/AshleyTisdale [[http://www.ashleytisdale.com is 30.]]
* Japanese singer Music/JunTogawa is in her fifties, but can still pull off looking like someone in her late teens or early twenties.
* Marisa Tomei is currently 50 at this time (born in December 1964) but looks much younger.
* [[Music/OneDirection Louis Tomlinson]] is now 23 (born in December 1990). He looks, at the most, maybe 16.
* Alessandra Torresani (known from ''Series/{{Caprica}}'') looks about mid-to-late teens but is really 27 (born 1987). Oh yeah, she has a black belt in taekwondo and has shown in a video interview with Wired that she's able to kick ass in 6-inch heels, her CombatStilettos.
* Jerry Trainor from ''Series/ICarly''. He's played Spencer, a man in his mid to late twenties, but he looks like a college student and acts like one. Jerry is 38.
* Creator/AlexTrebek is 74, but doesn't look much older than 50. It's probably because [[BadassMustache his mustache]] is gone.
* The Canadian politician, Justin Trudeau, Son of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has such youngish movie star looks that his Conservative opponents tried painting him as a wet-behind-the-ears 20something, when he is actually in his early 40's and not much younger than his father when he became Prime Minister.
* Creator/TinaTurner is, as of this writing (February 2015), 75 and she doesn't look old in [[http://tinaturnerblog.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/tina-1-1.jpg this 2011 photo]]. Nor in this 2009 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmH4YlNdWAg video]], at ''seventy''! However, she never looked ''young'' either, even in her pictures from 4 decades ago [[YoungerThanTheyLook she has the same fortyish appearance]].
* Sofia Vassilieva (known from ''Series/{{Medium}}'') looks almost too young to be a teenager but is really 21 (born 1992).
* Danny Vaughn of the US rock band Tyketto is possibly part vampire. He was born in 1961 making him 53 but looks around 15 years younger. This picture was taken in 2012 [[http://myglobalmind.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/DannyVaugh_Tyketto_Interviewpic_5.jpg]] when he was 51!
* [[GilmoreGirls Milo]] [[Series/{{Heroes}} Ventimiglia]] is 35 but looks 25 at the most. This made his relationship with Creator/HaydenPanettiere a little more unsettling in addition to the fact she was playing his niece.
* Eli Wallach was 50 when filming ''TheGoodtheBadandtheUgly''. He looked like he was in his early to mid forties.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Walters Barbara Walters]] looks 65, but is actually 85.
* DenzelWashington, a few grey hairs aside, barely seems to have aged since He was in ''Cry Freedom'' back in 1987. He's now 58, but seems perfectly at home in action films with actors twenty to twenty-five years younger.
* Naomi Watts is 44 and looks to be in early 30's. She is even set to star in a 2013 biopic about Princess Diana despite being almost a decade older than Diana was when she died.
* Gerard Way of Music/MyChemicalRomance is 35 but still somehow seems to age backwards. This is despite all the drinking, drugs, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking coffee]], and his ridiculous smoking habit.
* Anyone who saw ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' thought Sigourney Weaver looked darn fine. She's ''62''.
* Creator/RachelWeisz is 42? 32, ''maybe''.
* Raquel Welch. No earthly force should be able to make the average person believe that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:RaquelWelchApr2010.jpg this]] is a picture of a 70-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. She could probably pass for 55.
* Voice actor Creator/BillyWest is 63 as of this writing, but looks like he's only in his mid 40s at most.
* ''IceRoadTruckers''' 23-year-old rookie [[http://www.history.com/images/shows/bios/ice-road-truckers/irt-6/Austin6_480x250.jpg Austin Wheeler]] looks and sounds like he could be in his mid-teens. There are twentysomethings on TV who [[DawsonCasting play high school kids]] and look older.
* Creator/BettyWhite is 93 as of 2015, but looks to be in her mid 60s.
* Vanna White, of ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' fame, hardly looks to be in her mid-50s.
* Ben Whishaw is in his early 30s but could easily pass for mid 20s.
* Owen Wilson. 43 years old, looks like he's in his 30's.
* Music/PorcupineTree mainman [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/8/8f/Stevewilson-07.jpg/459px-Stevewilson-07.jpg Steven Wilson]] is 47 but could probably still pass for someone in their mid- to late-twenties.
** Interestingly, Wilson's longtime friend and {{Opeth}} frontman Mikael Akerfeldt, who he's often pictured with, looks quite a bit older than him but is actually 7 years younger than Wilson. It's not that Akerfeldt looks bad for his age, it's just that Wilson looks so young for his.
* Pharrell Williams is 40. ''40''. [[http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/woman/fashion-beauty/pharrell-williams-shares-skincare-secret-29219782.html He claims that good skincare has kept him freshfaced.]]
* Creator/ReeseWitherspoon was born in 1976, but looks at least 10 years younger.
* Creator/ElijahWood, as of the time Part 1 of ''The Hobbit'' releases, is 31 years old. He doesn't look much older than he did when he was ''18 years old'' and working on the ''Film/LordOfTheRings'' films. And he didn't look 18 then. Ironically, he was playing a character that was much ''older'' than his chronological age then. (Frodo is 33 when introduced and 50 when he leaves The Shire) But since this trope was also true of the Hobbits InUniverse - to the point where Frodo's 33rd birthday was a ''coming of age'' celebration - he ends up as a teenager playing a 33-year-old character that's supposed to look like a teenager.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic is 55, but doesn't look any older than his mid-thirties. In fact, thanks to removing his ridiculous glasses, afro, and mustache he had in the 80's and 90's, he actually looks younger than he did when he was actually young.
* Check out [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJCyCyn2Eyw this video]], then look at how old they say Winfred Yu is. He looks about 20 years younger.
* Music/TayZonday is one of the most extreme examples. He's 30 years old, but looks like he's in his late teens ''at the very most''. His voice is also extremely deep and [[VocalDissonance doesn't fit him]], to the point it almost looks like he's lip-syncing in his videos. His page image on this wiki was taken when he was '''25'''.
* Voice Actress Creator/CheramiLeigh is 26 but looks like she can pass as a 13 year old.
* Robbie Amell (Cousin of actor Stephen Amell) is 26 years old but can pass off as a teenager
* Creator/MonicaRial is 36 years old but looks mid-20s
* Carlos Valdes (Cisco in Series/TheFlash2014) Looks about mid-teens (without his facial hair, at least) but is 24.
* Creator/JaneFonda is pushing 80 but looks to be in her 50's. It's even gone to the point where Creator/BrooklynDecker, a woman old enough to be her granddaughter, is playing her daughter in the show Series/GraceAndFrankie (and their believable as mother and daughter to boot!).
* All four members of ''Music/GreenDay'' are in their early forties, but look to be in their mid-late 20's.
** Not so much in Mike Dirnt's case anymore as he's [[http://assets.rollingstone.com/assets/images/blog_entry/q-a-green-days-mike-dirnt-on-billie-joe-armstrongs-recovery-20130301/dirnt-624-1361824491.jpg aged]] quite dramatically in recent years.
* All the members of Music/XJapan (with the exception of Pata) look to be in their early 30s despite the fact that they're all nearing their 50s. Sugizo stands out the most as he actually looks younger now than he did in the 90s.
** At the time of his death, former lead guitarist Music/{{hide|toMatsumoto}} was 33, yet could have easily passed for a teenager. He seemed to [[http://sp0.fotolog.com/photo/48/8/96/visual_mty/1197590192_f.jpg age]] [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-jn5QN-HVZno/TpS4NI1XjYI/AAAAAAAAACo/19jLzNdUDr8/s1600/hide.jpg backwards]] as the years went on. This is especially impressive when you remember that he was an alcoholic, chain-smoker and occasional drug user.
* KyaryPamyuPamyu is 22, but looks mid-teens at the very oldest.
* TylerTheCreator is 24 and it can be hard to tell the difference between pictures of him now and pictures of him at 17-18, around the time his debut, ''Bastard'', dropped.
* Creator/HideoKojima was born in 1963 but looks ''considerably'' younger. A recurring joke among ''Franchise/MetalGear'' fans is that he injected himself with nanomachines for that.
* Former Music/DreamTheater vocalist Charlie Dominici is 64, yet looks like he's in his [[http://www.dominici.com/charlie_dominici.jpg mid-forties]] at the very most.
* Would you ever believe that [[http://img.ccrd.clearchannel.com/media/mlib/2135/2015/07/default/ritchie_blackmore_0_1436187835.jpg Ritchie Blackmore]] is now over 70 years old?
** His wife, [[http://mozicsillag.cc/img_stars/candice-night-1440081017.jpg Candice Night]], is 44. '''''FORTY'''''. '''''FOUR!'''''
* This is American drummer [[http://www.metal-archives.com/images/5/3/6/9/53692_artist.jpg?4959 Gregg Bisonette]]. He looks like he's around his mid-twenties right? Well, he's actually ''56''. Apparently age just gave up on him thirty years ago.
* Music/{{Enya}}, in her early fifties, looks barely any older than she did in her thirties.
* British comedy icon, Creator/BruceForsyth, is [[http://www.thsh.co.uk/files/images/applicationfiles/4930.8359.30MayBruceForsythweb/630x3.fitwithoffset.JPG 87]], but looks like he's in his late 60s.
* Music/DevinTownsend is [[http://www.theaquarian.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Buzz-Devin-Townsend-1-Photo-by-Erich-Saide.jpg 43]], but he looks to be at least a decade younger.

!!In general

* In general, anyone who is well below average height can fall under this trope. From the examples below, Creator/FrankieMuniz is 5'4" (where the average male height is 5'9"), and Creator/SentaMoses is 4'11" (average female height is 5'4"). However, below about 5'2" or so, there is a tendency for actors and actresses to look ''older'' than their real age, as they seem like adults the size of young children (or else suggest MiniatureSeniorCitizens). Danny [=DeVito=] (4'10") is a good example of this, having looked to be in his 50s since his mid-30s (when he was working on ''Series/{{Taxi}}''). In cases of dwarfism (e.g., [[Film/AustinPowers Verne Troyer]], 2'7", born 1969), the effects of the condition itself can also cause premature aging.
** Despite the effects of Parkinson's disease, Creator/MichaelJFox (5'4") still looks to be in his early twenties much of the time. He was born in 1961.
** Not despite, because of: people with Parkinson's often look younger than they are because of the associated paucity of expression.
*** A similar effect happens with those with Down syndrome. This, coupled with the tendency for such patients to die young, makes their real ages hard to determine. Ex: Chris Burke was 22 when he played 16-year-old Corky Thatcher in ''Series/LifeGoesOn'', the first series to have a major character with Down syndrome. He's nearly 50 now, but he still doesn't look it.
** [[Film/HarryPotter Daniel Radcliffe]] is also about the same height as Frankie Muniz -- the producers of ''Harry Potter'' and ''Series/MalcolmInTheMiddle'' really struck gold with them (especially now that the cast of ''Harry Potter'' are [[DawsonCasting considerably older than their characters]]), as they were both cast as pre-teens, before they knew what height they'd end up.
** Creator/KristinChenoweth. Age 45, 4'11", still looks early 20s-ish.
* People with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primordial_dwarfism primordial dwarfism]] look like toddler-sized [[Film/TheDarkCrystal Gelflings]], despite being in their early teens or, in one exceptional case, their early thirties.
* Midgets, as distinct from dwarfs (for whom the term "midget" is often considered a pejorative) generally do not mature physically, and so retain a childish appearance late into their adult years. This has not stopped them from having mature and productive adult lives, though in the early 20th century, they often ended up employed in the circus or in carnival sideshows. As recorded in old newsreels, a number of them were also able to find spouses and get legally married as adults:
** [[http://www.britishpathe.com/video/quite-a-miniature-affair In 1928, two unidentified midgets got married]]
** [[http://www.britishpathe.com/video/midgets-married-in-cathedral In 1934, Albert Cox and Beatrice Green were married.]]
** [[http://www.britishpathe.com/video/midgets-wedding-blackpool In 1938, a Mr. and Mrs. Wetton (no other names given) were married.]]
** [[http://www.britishpathe.com/video/midgets-wedding-aka-midgets-wedding In 1946, Jimmy Wetton and Margaret Kierney got married.]]
** [[http://www.britishpathe.com/video/news-flashes-midget-wedding In 1955, Freddy Rushton and Dorothy Williams got married.]]
** [[TinyGuyHugeGirl In a somewhat unusual match]] [[http://www.britishpathe.com/video/midget-wedding-in-miami in 1938, the midget Billy Curtis got married to a tall (6'4") woman named Lois De Fre,]] who'd been a {{Bouncer}}.
* Often occurs with some [[{{Transsexual}} female-to-male trans men]], particularly if they're not on hormones.
* Some autistic people are usually legitimately thought to be younger than they actually are, even if the onlooker does not know that they are autistic, strangely enough. This phenomenon has been attributed to many autistics just not emoting much with their faces, so they tend to develop fewer wrinkles. The equally common wide-eyed expression (or "the autistic stare") many autistics have might also make them seem childlike.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neoteny Neoteny]] is an evolutionary process whereby an organism retains once exclusively juvenile traits into adulthood. Humans have this trait. We grow up more slowly than other apes, and spend more time in the learning-conducive childhood stage. As adults, we remain childlike by ape standards, with high foreheads, flat faces, and less powerful physiques.
* Some people of Asian descent frequently appear younger than they actually are for several reasons. Asians tend to be shorter than people of other ethnicities, which, as noted above, contributes to a more youthful appearance. Additionally, many Asians (also, many people with Down Syndrome, hence the archaic/offensive term "Mongoloid") have a more recessed bridge to their noses, a trait most noticeable in children of other ethnicities.
* Individuals who keep themselves extremely physically fit, do not smoke, and regularly use sunscreen are often thought to be ten or more years younger than their actual age. Part of this is due to the fact that people overall tend to get out of shape as they age, and that the number one source of wrinkles, spotting, and crow's feet on someone's face is sun exposure and smoking.
* People of African descent often look relatively young for their ages as well. This can be attributed to melanin offering some protection against wrinkles, as well as wrinkles often being less noticeable on darker-skinned people. There is even a saying within the black community ("Black don't crack.") that lampshades this trope. Furthermore, black people tend to develop gray hair a bit later than other ethnicities due to melanin.
* Most of the cast of ''Series/ANTFarm'' are subject to major DawsonCasting, including the main cast. That said, they still look like the ages their roles are supposed to represent, typically at least two years younger than the performers' actual ages.
** Creator/JakeShort (Fletcher) is the most extreme example; he looks 12 ''at most'' despite being '''16'''.
* In general, people who are more weighty tend to look younger than their thinner same-aged counterparts, because the "face puffing" that happens when one puts on a lot of weight can hide or stretch out wrinkles and age spots, as well as being reminiscent of "baby fat."
* Men that lack facial hair, whether it's due to shaving or not having any facial hair to begin with, tend to look younger than they really are.
** Similarly, for both men and women, styling/grooming your hair in a certain way can make you look younger and other styles can have the opposite effect. In particular, curly hair, whether [[QuirkyCurls quirky]] or [[RegalRinglets regal]], can make an actor seem much younger.
* Certain types of makeup can make a person look younger as well. For example, pro wrestler Wrestling/DaffneyUnger wears Goth makeup as part of her gimmick. [[YoungerThanTheyLook She will be 40 in 2015 but looks closer to 50]] without it.
* Due to advances in plastic surgery and make-up techniques, as well as the nature of their jobs, most celebrities tend to deliberately look younger than what they really are. Coupled with the fact that most publications use editing to enhance the looks of celebrities in their covers (see the Specific People folders below).
* Happens all the time on morning shows like ''Series/{{Today}}'' and ''Good Morning America'', possibly due to the fact that the hosts use makeup a lot to make them appear more lively than they actually are. Willard Scott for instance was ''fifty three'' when [[http://www.thejoyboys.com/pix/wsrace.jpg this picture]] was taken (1987), and yet looked like he was in his mid-thirties at most. (The fact that he was wearing his toupee helps a little, though it sort of made things all the more jarring [[http://www.thejoyboys.com/pix/wstuff.jpg when he DIDN'T have it on...]]) He's 80 now as of this writing and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hbNhZ2OS1E just barely looks it]]. Former co-anchor Bryant Gumbel also seems to be aging VERY slowly - compare [[http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2013/12/27/article-2529744-1A4CF6BB00000578-2_634x448.jpg this picture]] from sometime during TheEighties to [[http://jacksonville.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/superphoto/TV-Today%20Reunion_Kigh.jpg this one]], taken around 2002. On the other side, Lara Spencer was born in ''1969'' and looks like she's in her late 20's/early 30's ([[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog_post_349_width/2014/04/laura_spencer.jpg at least in this picture]]).

* JamieBamber is another one of these. He was 25 years old when he did the first ''HoratioHornblower'' films but passed for a very convincing seventeen. This continued when he went on to work on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' - he was 30 years old to Creator/KateeSackhoff's 23, but they looked the same age (especially since Katee was playing a character a couple of years older than her actual age). Even now at 40 (which in and of itself is still relatively young), he can convincingly pass for someone in his mid-thirties rather than 40.

* Creator/PatrickStewart is 72, but could easily pass for 50's. Hell, look at the first episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' in which he's 47, and you'd be hard-pressed to tell him apart from today. Despite some extra wrinkles and filling out a bit, he looked like the same old bald man we know and love when he was in his 30's. Which makes the younger, full haired cadet seen in the episode ''Tapestry'' hilarious.

Despite some extra wrinkles and filling out a bit, he looked like the same old bald man we know and love when he was in his 30's. Which makes the younger, full haired cadet seen in the episode ''Tapestry'' hilarious.
