There’s no better time in life than when you find out that some of the celebrities you grew up with are turning 50. Having your idols run around on this planet for half a century can only mean that you’re also getting old and at least most of your good days are long behind you by now.
Let’s take a look at some celebrities of whom we’d rather forget that they’re turning 50 this year. But they are – trust me.
Remember Ant-Man? Don’t worry, no one does. Anyway, Paul Rudd is turning 50 this year, which is a weird thing because he hasn’t aged a day in over a decade.
Oh god, this one’s painful, isn’t it? She’s turning 50 and looks fit as hell, whereas I can’t even make it to 30 without getting fat. She’s probably a time traveler – there’s no other explanation.
Yes, even Matthew is turning 50 this year. It’s a shame to realize that we’ll probably have to do without his acting in a few decades. Here’s to hoping he can keep his career going as long as Anthony Hopkins, because he’s truly a wonderful actor.
Gwen hasn’t aged a day since turning 26 probably, so this is kind of a shock. I remember her being in her 20s when No Doubt had all those hits so I guess it makes sense that she’s turning 50 this year, but I don’t think I’m ready to accept it yet.
I guess all the make-up really does allow you to cheat for 10 years, right? Again, we all remember him having hits in the 90’s so we can’t act too surprised, but I think – even with all the make-up – many people would pay top dollar to look that young at 50.
Another one of those actors that just doesn’t seem to age. We all know Edward from his amazing performance in Fight Club, but that’s also been a few decades. Feel old yet? Neither does Ed!
Yes, even rock stars get old. The Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age and Probot (among other projects) musician still has an energy level of someone half his age, so here’s to hoping he’ll keep on performing music until he turns 100.
