Since Hollywood first took flight in the early 1900's, stars of the entertainment world have wowed us with their beauty. But like the rest of us, their looks eventually fade, and we can only imagine how hard that must be for those who have made a career from being beautiful.
However, that isn't always the case. For some celebrities, their looks have improved with age. While it may sound cliche, these celebrities really have aged like fine wine.
Here are 21 yummy celebrities who are older than you think.
1. Kevin Costner (Age: 63)
Kevin Costner doesn't have the blockbuster career he once had, but his withering age hasn't stopped him from remaining an absolute stud! The 63-year-old actor has done it all; from romcoms and thrillers to horror and action flicks.
Now single following two divorces, the two-time Academy Award-winner could very well be Hollywood's most eligible, middle-aged bachelor.
2. Christie Brinkley (Age: 64)
Whether you believe it or not, the American supermodel Christine Brinkley is 64 -years-old. Yes, that's right..... 64! Speaking about how she looks so good after all those years, the blonde bombshell credited her lifelong vegan diet as the primary factor.
The model, who is worth an estimated $250m, also revealed to Megyn Kelley that she is a fan of "all therapy" a procedure that stimulates collagen in the skin.
3. Brad Pitt (Age: 54)
Brad Pitt, who has long been dubbed the hottest man alive, is 54, even though his radiant and prepossessing looks would have you believe he's at least 20 years younger.
Like Brickley, the American actor is also a vegan and has also undergone a range of skin care treatments including microneedling.
4. Iman (Age: 62)
The Somalian supermodel Iman had been married to the late David Bowie for over 24 years before he passed away, and like with her husband's never-aging looks, it appears Iman's fantastic appearance hasn't been prone to aging either.
Speaking about how her beauty ritual, the model told O, The Oprah Magazine," I am kind to my skin. I remove my makeup as soon as I get home and apply moisturizer."
5. Clint Eastwood (Age: 88)
Not only is Clint Eastwood one of the coolest men in Hollywood, but he's also one of the most talented and still produces, directs and acts in a whole host of movies. Oh, and did we mention that he's still ridiculously handsome?
Yes, at the age of 88, Eastwood still remains one of the sexiest men alive, as he proved when he held his own in a delightful cover shot for Esquire with his equally hot thespian son, Scott Eastwood.
6. Diane Keaton (Age: 72)
She may be only 28 years off 100, but Diane Keaton doesn't look a day over 50! The star of many movies, including Woody Allen's famous films Annie Hall and Manhattan, Keaton proves you can still look the part of a starlet without becoming vapid and self-obsessed.
In her very own words, "I think that people who are famous tend to be underdeveloped in their humanity skills."
7. Harrison Ford (Age: 75)
Harrison Ford is a name that needs little introduction and is proof that some celebrities appear better with age. From standing his own against the pretty boy looks of Ryan Gosling in Blade Runner 2049 to outshining John Boyega and Adam Driver in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mr. Ford, is, and will always remain, one of Hollywood's most handsome men.
So next time you give your old man a hard time for getting on, just remember that he might blossom later on and upstage you just like Ford probably does with his own grandchildren!
8. Kate Winslet (Age: 42)
Kate Winslet is an extraordinary actress and has aged spectacularly well without undergoing any cosmetic procedures. "It goes against my morals," she said when speaking in an interview about cosmetic surgery. "The way my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty. I will never give in."
Naturally flawless, Kate Winslet really is in a league of her own. Now, if you'd only fufill everyone's wishes and get hitched with Leonardo DiCaprio, we'd all be very happy, Kate!
9. Tom Cruise (Age: 55)
He's arguably the world's most successful movie star and has been around for so long you probably can't remember the time he sported horrendous teeth in the 1983 film 'Outsiders'.
But though his career may sound ancient, his looks are anything but and possesses a pair of shiny whites that spawned the famous 'Hollywood smile' phrase.
10. Rob Lowe (Age: 53)
While Rob Lowe may grind on our gears at times (how many times has he mentioned how attractive he is?) there's no denying that Lowe looks terrific and doesn't look a day over 40 despite his age saying otherwise.
Rob Lowe attributes his looks to his sobriety, which dates back to his 20s following years of hard partying and womanizing.
11. David Duchovny (Age: 57)
Famed for his acting credits in Showtime's Californication and Fox's The X-Files, David Duchovny- who is 54 and still as hot as ever- is a man of many talents.
As well as forging a highly lucrative acting career, Duchovny has also written, produced and directed some of the episodes for both shows and has also released two novels after gaining a PhD in English Literature from Princeton University.
12. Michelle Pfeiffer (Age: 60)
While Michelle may have aged, she could still drop jaws in most clubs and has admitted that while she yearns for looking like her younger self, she has accepted her older age for its liberating qualities. "Everyone knows you're 50," she told the La Times in 2009. "So you don't have to worry about not trying to look 50."
It's little surprise that Michelle's beauty has endured a cultural legacy far beyond that of most starlets, and the actress's beauty was even mentioned in the hit indie song, "Riptide" by the Australian band, Vance Joy, with the lyrics going, "Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen."
13. Pierce Brosnan (Age: 65)
British actor Pierce Brosnan is basically the male version of Christine Brinkley. It appears 64 never looked so good! So what's the secret, Pierce? Well, while the former 007 agent hasn't indulged us in his Dorian Grey-esque image, but he's often pictured enjoying an early morning workout in the sunny California sunshine.
His son is also a model, which means being good looking is probably in the Brosnan genes. Sometimes, the genetic lottery decides who looks good and who doesn't. Sigh.
14. Sheryl Crow (Age: 56)
The 54-year-old country crooner insists her youthful looks are natural and detests any form of surgical or cosmetic enhancements. Speaking about how procedures like Botox can actually make you look older, the cancer survivor said," When you shoot yourself with Botox and stuff your rob yourself of your ability to have youthful expressions, and that's sometimes why people look a lot older."
You go, girl!
15. George Clooney (Age: 57)
The longtime lothario and heartthrob finally tied the knot to long-term love interest and human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin in 2014. However, one thing that hasn't changed is his looks. The silver fox, it still appears, really is like a fine wine; seeming only to improve with age.
Now adding tequila billionaire to his long list of achievements, looking good and being good at just everything appears to be a trademark Clooney isn't keen to give up anytime soon.
16. Jim Parsons (Age: 45)
Has Jim Parsons taken on the intelligence of his much-loved Big Bang character Sheldon Cooper and devised his own anti-aging potion? We think so! He still looks like someone in their late 20s/early30s as opposed to someone well into their 40s!
One of Hollywood's highest-paid t.v. actors, Jim Parsons is arguably the most famous gay actor in Hollywood and is often considered a poster boy for Hollywood's LGBT community.
17. Jennifer Aniston (Age: 49)
Jennifer Aniston is one of America's sweethearts because she's utterly fabulous and anyone who tells you otherwise is a hater, plain and simple. Anyway, now that's out of the way, let's get on to Jen's age, which is just as remarkable as her career. Nearing the rip-old age of 50, Aniston's appearance is easily that of someone in their early 30s.
So, who wants in on her beauty secret? Speaking about the benefits of microneedling (yes, you read that correctly), the star attributed the non-surgical procedure to her youthful glow. “I do micro-needling! I just learned about it a couple months ago from a facialist in New York. It allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in”
18. Jared Leto (Age: 46)
The multitalented artist has everything, doesn't he? The voice. The acting chops. The looks. The charisma. The swagger. If we could just have an ounce of this dude's talent, we'd all be delighted, but it's even more unfair to know that Leto is 46! Yes, 46!
Most men in their mid-40s look haggard but not Leto. He's living the bachelor life to a tee, and he looks all the better for it.
19. Halle Berry (Age: 51)
After living rough on the streets of New York, Halle Berry rose above adversity to become one of the world's most celebrated actresses, and even at 51, she still looks like the stunning starlet that made her a global sex symbol in the 90s.
Berry's 51 years really are astonishing, not least because she still finds time to volunteer in care homes and pursue other charitable endeavors, all while looking fabulous, so much so that Berry's 51-year age looks more like 30.
20. William Shatner (Age: 86)
William Shatner's Star Trek voyage may have long finished, but his vitality in the world of show business remains strong, with his 86 years not stopping him from doing what he loves most.
And while Shatner may not be the most handsome man on our list, he still looks remarkably good for his age, and could easily pass for someone in their 60s.
21. Sharon Stone (Age: 60)
She shocked millions with one sultry swing of the leg in the cult-classic 'Basic Instinct,' and now she's doing the same with her flawless 60-year-old face. It's quite remarkable and grossly unfair that someone can still look this sexy when most of us struggle to look kempt and presentable at 30!
Still, thanks to Stone, there's hope for all of us!
