Hollywood actors seem to have it all - money, fame, notoriety, talent (sometimes in that order) and now they seem to have found a way to stop the wrinkle clock! Johnny Depp spent two long hours and twenty disappointing minutes trying to find the fountain of youth in the latest ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ film, but all he really needed to do was check out these youthful looking actors. Although they look young and flawless, we reveal the shocking real ages of Hollywood’s hottest stars…
Warning: This blog may turn your eyes green with envy.
Tom Cruise - 49
His most memorable role came as the young buck in ‘Top Gun’ armed with boyish good looks and an F-14 fighter plane. Since then his career has blossomed and, with popular consensus, so has his face. Hitting an astonishing 49-years-old this weekend, his devilish good looks have kept him a firm favourite with women of all ages, even though he is pushing 50. Although he does look a bit like a waxwork in this shot.
Holly Hunter - 53
Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter looks remarkable for her age. In a recent photo shoot for Style Magazine she looks as if she could be her own daughter! Perhaps it’s the curious case of Holly Hunter? At the ripe old age of 53 she is the personification of a fine wine (getting better with age).
Jennifer Aniston - 42
Having flaunted her body in ‘Just Go With It’, Jennifer Aniston is set to show even more flesh in upcoming comedy ‘Horrible Bosses’ and we can certainly see why. Having recently picked up a Decade of Hotness award, it seems her youthful looks have stuck it out, even through some questionable ‘comedy’ flicks. Keanu Reeves - 46
It’s been 22 years since Keanu Reeves stumbled onto our screens in ‘Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure’, but the mono-toned actor doesn’t seem to have aged a day. So it comes as a little bit of a surprise that he is a staggering 46 years old! It would seem that the casting director and continuity producer on the upcoming ‘Bill & Ted’ flick will be pleased.
Salma Hayek - 44
Hayek stormed onto the big screen in ‘Desperado’ as a sexy young thing alongside Antonio Banderas in 1995. Over a decade and a half later she still has the same youthful face that made her a star. It’s almost as if she was cryogenically frozen for seven years until she popped up in ‘Frida’ in 2002. Judging by her fairly lackluster filmography over the years, perhaps she’s always popping in and out of that chamber?
Will Smith - 42
When he’s not upsetting New York locals with his massive trailer, Will Smith is the friendliest man in the Hollywood Hills. And it would seem that his kindness has provided him with good karma. Looking at this picture it appears as though he’s used a large chunk of the aforementioned karma on his face. That, and making his entire family into a media product.
Julia Roberts - 43
Julia Roberts is still as radiant as she was when she first stepped into those killer black boots in ‘Pretty Woman’ back in 1990. It’s a testament to her beauty regime – though we’re guessing the fact that she’s global ambassador for a well-known beauty company could also have something to do with it. She looks ‘pretty’ much the same.
Matthew McConaughey - 41
McConaughey still resembles his character, David Wooderson, from ‘Dazed and Confused’ way back in 1993. Although his famous line; “That’s what I love about high school chicks. I get older, but they stay the same age” may sound a tad wrong considering he’s now 41, looking at his youthful mug, it would appear he stays the same age too! Although his face does look a bit longer. Courteney Cox - 47
Looking at Courteney Cox now, you would never guess that it has been 15 years since the first ‘Scream’ film. She joins ‘Friends’ co-star Jennifer Aniston on the surprisingly-older-than-they-look-list. Maybe there was an on-set secret during the show? Whatever the reason, it seems Matt Le Blanc wasn’t given the heads up about it.
Halle Berry - 44
Apart from the god-awful ‘Catwoman’, Halle Berry has had a pretty much spotless career, much like her appearance. Now at a womanly 44-years-old, she maintains her sumptuous good looks and proves once and for all that she’s the cat that got the wrinkle cream. Meow! Julia Stiles - 30
Judging by her expression, Stiles was the perfect actor to star in the angst rom-com ’10 Things I Hate About You’ alongside the late Heath Ledger. After all these years it seems she is still that moody teenager - even at 30 years of age.
