26 Celebrities Who Are Surprisingly the Same Age

Michal Scott What


Remember that time that Aaliyah sang that “age ain’t nothin’ but a number?” Well, she was absolutely talking about the citizens of the Great Time Vacuum that is Hollywood, where you can turn 25 for each birthday if you so please. But, for every Kris Jenner, who sucks the youth from her children while they sleep, there is a celebrity who is just chugging along, maturing at normal human speeds. Which leaves us at this great place where you can mention two celebrities, discover that they are the same age, and then promptly go into cardiac arrest from extreme shock. This happens to me on the reg.

Anyway, medical issues aside, I’ve just been spending a lot of time trying to figure out how these 26 celebrities are even the same species, let alone the same ages.

1. David Beckham and Bradley Cooper

Age: 38

One is a multinational treasure with a family (full of impossibly pretty people, holy crap) and the other is currently fake dating someone who just finished being a teenager a little while ago. Like, it’s your choice, buddy, but just know that Suki is anti-aging you, in a weird Benjamin Button sort of way.

2. John Mayer and Kerry Washington

Age: 36

Somehow, famous man-child, John, is somehow the same age as the shining gem of maturity and poise, Kerry. I don’t know which alternate dimensions these two grew up in but I’d say that John has a lot of catching up to do as far as his age to maturity ratio is concerned.

3. Harry Styles and Justin Bieber

Age: 19

When Justin isn’t busy peeing on everything and, most recently, disrespecting entire nations, he’s actually a 19 year-old infant. Meanwhile, Harry, is constantly impressing me by being wise beyond his years. So Justin seems half his age and Harry seems double. Crazy things going on here, folks.

4. Shia Labeouf and Drake

Age: 27

Shia is the strange, always-nude soul that sort of lurks around Hollywood, looking for the very weirdest roles. And Drake is showing him up by being the best version of a 27 year-old, while Shia does… whatever it is that he does.

5. Paris Hilton and Beyonce Knowles

Age: 32

I think the problem here is that Paris spent so much of her career trying to convince everyone that she’s really really dumb, that I can’t take her seriously now, no matter how much she’s “matured.” Meanwhile Beyonce is a saint descended upon us and for some reason that makes her seem older and wiser.

      Why don’t you like Anne Hathaway???? I can’t even fathom.

        I’m with Olivia on this one. I recognize it makes no sense and I have zero explanation for it but I just have an unexplained annoyance/dislike of Anne too.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Samesies. I wrote it up A LOT last year. Some would say too much. (I would say too much.)

      • Olivia Wilson

        Until she (thankfully) gave us a much-needed break from her.

        One day I’ll figure out what it is about her that bothers me. Today isn’t that day, but one day.

      • Olivia Wilson

        You know, I don’t even know. I once explained it as “I like her when she’s in character as someone else, but Anne as Anne is ugh.” That’s as close to a real reason as I’ll ever be able to get, I think.

      • AnonyMouse

        I think it’s because there’s something about her that doesn’t ring as genuine. Like she wants people to think she’s nice so much that she tries too hard. People were annoyed with her because she was getting so much attention with Les Mis and Batman, and it became glaringly obvious that she was not acting like herself, but some sort of character. Prior to that she hadn’t really had that much exposure all at once so it wasn’t as obvious. Her awards speeches made me roll my eyes because I felt like she was trying to make it seem like she was so shocked she was winning when in reality she knew she was going to, but didn’t want to seem like an ass.

      Miley is 21 now. This was written today. #fail

        Thanks for catching that! That part was actually written a few days back, but I’ll still accept your #fail as my punishment.
