Celebrities have access to all sorts of medical advancements that help keep them looking a few years younger. A number of the rich and famous don’t need to resort to plastic surgery, however. They stay fresh faced without obvious intervention and look great long after they’ve left the glow of their twenties behind. Take look at a list of ten popular celebs who are a lot older than many of us think.
1. Jennifer Lopez

Despite being in the spotlight for over a decade, Jennifer Lopez still looks younger than her 45 years. The mother of twins is still just as hot as she was in her thirties and doesn’t look much older, either. This young-looking celebrity is a good example for us to follow.
2. Eric Milligan
Eric Milligan is famous for his role in Bones as Dr. Zack Addy. While he doesn’t look a day over 25, the actor was born in 1974, making him 39 years old. He has definitely figured out the secret to staying young. I still can’t believe it!
3. Pauley Perrette
Mostly recognized for her work as Abby Scuito on NCIS, Pauley Perrette is a writer and singer in addition to being an actress. She may look like she’s in her late twenties on the popular crime show, but Pauley Perrette is actually 45 years old. She has a beautiful, youthful face, fantastic smile and incredible body. Do you agree with me?
4. Tobey MacGuire
You would never guess that Tobey MacGuire is pushing 40, but the 39-year-old actor is far older than he looks. His baby face has been seen in dozens of movies, from The Cider House Rules to the Spider-man series. He has been acting for years, but his appearance says otherwise.
5. Bianca Lawson
It takes youthful looks to play a teenager a decade apart, but Bianca Lawson has played a high school student in both Saved by the Bell: The New Class and Pretty Little Liars. At 35, she’s long past her adolescence, but that hasn’t stopped casting directors from giving her young roles.
6. Johnny Depp

While Johnny Depp can easily play younger roles, the actor is a mature 50 years old. He still looks like he’s twenty years younger and could easily reprise his early roles in Edward Scissorhands or Crybaby. Johnny Depp will look good into his 90s at the rate he’s going.
7. Emily Kinney
Emily Kinney is an actress and singer and is best known for her portrayal of Beth Greene on AMC’s The Walking Dead. While she is still a teenager on the show, Emily Kinney is 28 in real life. She uses her youthful face to land great roles and is also coming into her own as a recording artist.
8. Jason Earles
Jason Earles played Hannah Montana’s big brother on the hit Disney show, but this funny actor is no teenager. He started playing the 16 year old Jackson Stewart when he was 29. Jason Earles is now 37, considerably older than his alter ego. It seems this celebrity doesn’t age at all.
9. Gwen Stefani

Surprisingly, this blonde singer is 44, though she still looks fresh out of her twenties. Having a couple of children and several interesting careers hasn’t slowed this lady down a bit. Despite being middle aged, she looks just as young as she did when she first hit the charts.
10. Lenny Kravitz
Lenny Kravitz fooled fans everywhere when he took a role in the first two film versions of The Hunger Games. He appeared to be relatively young and certainly no older than 30, but in real life, the singer/actor is actually 50. You would never guess his real age from looking at him, even without his signature sunglasses.
The next time you see a celebrity that looks surprisingly youthful, don’t assume they are young. They might just have great genes. From Lenny Kravitz to Jennifer Lopez, these famous folks are defying the years. Whether they have found the fountain of youth or made a pact with the devil, one thing is certain, each of them has managed to avoid the ravages of time.
