10 Celebrities Who Are Older Than You Think!

In an industry that seems to prize youth over experience, looking younger than you are can be a real bonus for a performer. These 10 celebrities appear to have long careers ahead of them. And surprisingly behind them. 

 

Sarah Hyland

She plays your typical girl-girl teenager on Modern Family, but actress Sarah Hyland is actually a very legal 21.  I think she's probably gonna get ID'd for a loooong time. It might be a hassle now, but trust me...one day it'll be a compliment she'll get sadly excited about.

 

Cory Monteith

It's kind of disturbing to find out that the MacKinley High's popular quarterback, will be 30 on May 11th. Luckily we know that Lea Michele is 25 IRL or that episode where Rachel loses her virginity to Finn would've been hella awkward. Like more than it already was.

 

Alison Brie

She may play a 21-year-old college student on Community, but Alison will actually be 30 by the year's end.  I'm happy she looks so youthful, because a 30-year-old enthusiastic co-ed who makes a 'Disney Face'  and has no sense of irony is more sad than funny.

 

Jim Parsons

At 38, Jim Parsons has a good ten years on his Big Bang Theory character Sheldon Cooper. That would make him more of a former late-teen prodigy than a former child prodigy. Still impressive but not as impressive as validating his Superstring Theory and winning a Nobel Prize would've been. 

 

Bianca Lawson

You gotta give it up for a 32-year-old woman who can pull off playing a 16-year-old girl! When you look this much younger than you really are, you can totally get away with being a pretty little liar! 

 

Jason Earles

This dude is 34!?! Who knew Hannah Montana's older brother was this much older!  He must have made a deal with same devil that granted Miley fame and fortune.

 

Alyson Hannigan

By the end of this month, Alyson will be 38-years-old. Gulp. I can only assume that she learned some witchy fountain of youth tricks after playing Willow on Buffy the Vampire Slayer for so many years. Cause she is still so friggin' adorable!

 

Jared Leto

He is 40!?!  But he's so boyishly handsome still! Even though he sometimes comes off as a little douchey, I have to admit, I'd help him apply his guyliner anyday!

 

Gwen Stefani

It's kind of hard to believe that Gwen is 42. Especially when she prances around  looking like a 16-year-old Harajuku Girl.

 

Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris is turning 72 on March 10th. And he could still knock you on your ass with one roundhouse kick to the face.  But he can't for the life of him, figure out that making a Facebook status update is not the same as searching Google.
