Taraji P. Henson

It may be hard out here for a pimp, but this Empire star looks no worse for wear. In fact, she appears to have some variation of the Benjamin Button disease.

2 of 52

Taraji P. Henson is 46

No. Absolutely not. We refuse to believe that Taraji P. Henson is 46.

Gina Rodriguez

Gina Rodriguez plays a recent college graduate on Jane The Virgin. But how old is she IRL?

4 of 52

Gina Rodriguez is 32

Wait, what? Gina Rodriguez is 32 years old? We need to get a copy of her diet and exercise plan immediately.

Gwen Stefani

Who is this stylish punk chick? Is she some twentysomething rocker? Oh, wait, that's Gwen Stefani!

6 of 52

Gwen Stefani is 47

The Voice coach is 47 years old and doesn't look a day over "Don't Speak." And she isn't speaking about how she maintains her youthful glow.

7 of 52

Angela Bassett

Angelia Bassett is vibrant, youthful, and so beautiful you'll never guess her age ...

8 of 52

Angela Bassett is 58

Angela Bassett may look younger than ever, but she lists her age as 58. Yes. 58. Odds are she made some type of deal with one of the American Horror Story demons in exchange for eternal youth.

Sanaa Lathan

Look at her. LOOK at Sanaa Lathan. She actually glows. She can't be a day over 32, right?

10 of 52

Sanaa Lathan is 45

WHAT?! Whatever she's doing, bottle it up and sell it, because it's working.

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher played a young Steve Jobs in Jobs, emphasis on the "young."

12 of 52

Ashton Kutcher is 39

This proud new papa is 39 years old.

13 of 52

Bianca Lawson

Beyoncé and Solange's new sister-in-law has been on the scene for years. For most of that time, she's played a high school student. So how old is she, really?

14 of 52

Bianca Lawson is 38

Thirty. Eight. Let that sink in.

15 of 52

Chris O'Donnell

The NCIS: Los Angeles star has a fresh face. But, if you think about it, he starred in early-'90s movies with that same baby face.

16 of 52

Chris O'Donnell is 47

Yep. Chris O'Donnell shows no signs that he's entering silver fox territory.

17 of 52

Ellie Kemper

The Umbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star plays a naive young woman on the show. Her child-like energy is infectious ... and deceptive!

18 of 52

Ellie Kemper is 37

Didn't see that coming, did you?

19 of 52

Fran Drescher

In the early '90s, she was The Nanny. She looked great then, but - dare we say it - she looks even better these days! Has she persuaded time to move backwards?

20 of 52

Fran Drescher is 59

It's official. Fran Drescher has figured out how to manipulate time so that she doesn't age, and she's not sharing her secrets.

21 of 52

Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union looks the same today as she did in Bring It On back in 2000.

22 of 52

Gabrielle Union is 44

No. Just no. There is no way that Gabrielle Union is 44. Someone please explain.

23 of 52

Halle Berry

Halle Berry does not age. She just doesn't. We don't know how or why, but time stands still for this mega-star.

24 of 52

Halle Berry is 50

Stop the presses! Halle Berry needs to tell all of us how she keeps her body looking like that at 50. Because it's unfair, to be honest.

25 of 52

Ice Cube

If we didn't know that that was Ice Cube's son standing beside him, we'd swear these two were brothers.

26 of 52

Ice Cube is 48

That's right. Even though he looks like he came Straight Outta Compton yesterday, Ice Cube is 48-years-old.

27 of 52

Jada Pinkett Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith hasn't changed much since Woo, and we want to know how that's even possible. Seriously, please send some tips.

28 of 52

Jada Pinkett Smith is 45

She's not sharing tips with us, but it's evident she's sharing them with her husband, Will Smith. They both stopped aging in 1998.

29 of 52

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston has had a fresh face since Friends, and that doesn't look like it will change any time soon.

30 of 52

Jennifer Aniston is 48

Yep. Jennifer Aniston lists her age as 48. We'll have what she's having.

31 of 52

Larenz Tate

Love Jones made us fall in love with Larenz Tate. But wait ... that was a long time ago!

32 of 52

Larenz Tate is 41

Someone please explain how Larenz Tate has sustained a pristine baby face for 19 years!

33 of 52

Lenny Kravitz

If you only know Lenny Kravitz as Cinna from The Hunger Games, you have no clue that he was rockin' way before you were born (probably).

34 of 52

Lenny Kravitz is 53

We'll go your way, Lenny, if you tell us how you stay looking so young. Deal?

35 of 52

LL Cool J

Hip hop OG LL Cool J is clearly swapping stay-young techniques with his NCIS: Los Angeles co-star Chris O'Donnell.

36 of 52

LL Cool J is 49

It's just not right. It really isn't.

37 of 52

Mario Lopez

His AC Slater days are over, but he still looks like he matriculates at Bayside High School.

38 of 52

Mario Lopez is 43

Mario Lopez is definitely getting an A+ in How To Look Young Forever 101.

39 of 52

Michael Ealy

This one is really going to throw you. Don't get upset, though. We have to accept that some people triumph over the normal side effects of aging. Michael Ealy is one of those people.

40 of 52

Michael Ealy is 43

Not 31. Not 35. Not even 40. He's 43-years-old, folks.

41 of 52

Nia Long

You know you've got it in the bag when more than one generation considers you a sex symbol. Nia Long has achieved this and more.

42 of 52

Nia Long is 46

Our guess? Witchcraft. Because there's no way that Nia Long still looks like she's 23 without some type of dark magic.

43 of 52

Pharrell Williams

Oh look! It's a college student on his way to class. Wait a second. That's no college kid! That's the multi-talented Pharrell Williams!

44 of 52

Pharrell Williams is 44

The Voice coach has been around long enough to collect a wealth of experience, yet zero wrinkles.

45 of 52

Rachel True

Look at this sweet young lady walking in the sun! Is she some new Hollywood starlet on the rise? She looks like a young Rachel True. Hang on. That is Rachel True!

46 of 52

Rachel True is 50

There is no way that this woman is 50. We demand a recount.

47 of 52

Stacey Dash

Watch Clueless. Then watch an episode from the first season of VH1's Single Ladies. What do they have in common? Stacey Dash looks exactly the same.

48 of 52

Stacey Dash is 50

How is this even possible?

49 of 52

Sway Calloway

Sway has been on MTV forever it seems. Yet he hasn't changed one bit.

50 of 52

Sway Calloway is 47

Tell us how you do it, Sway! Your fans need to know.

51 of 52

Tina Knowles

This is the woman who gave us Beyoncé and Solange Knowles. By the looks of things, she bore them at age 12.

52 of 52

Tina Knowles is 63

Tina Knowles is slaying all the dragons at 63 years of age. Blessed be.
