Even though Black don’t crack, we all know it’s a hyperbole. In fact, even though Black women age WONDERFULLY, there are still certain individuals who age better than others. Could it be their skin regimen or just pure ‘ol genetics? We wonder. But in any case, we’ve included 7 Black women who you may have not known to be so much older than they appear. We tried not to include the obvious ones but we threw in a few for good measure and for your viewing pleasure.

Shaun Robinson

Looks: 35

Real Age: 49

This came as a big shocker to us. Shaun Robinson, the ubiquitous host of Access Hollywood, does not look a day over 35. One of her beauty secrets must involve an exercise regimen: just look at those toned arms and the slim physique.

Rachel True 

Looks: 31

Real Age: 45

Less than ten years ago, this 45-year-old actress was playing a twenty-something on the popular UPN show Half & Half. Although she’s not working as much, the stresses of Hollywood are definitely not taking a toll on the forever-young actress. She looks as youthful as ever as seen in this recent photo.

Lynn Whitfield

Looks: 50

Real Age: 59

Many people know Whitfield from her role as the deranged lover in A Thin Line Between Love and Hate, but she was in the acting game for a decade before that popular film was released. Whitfield is ten years older than her co-star Martin Lawrence.

Veronica Webb

Looks: 38

Real Age: 47

This former model has managed to stay relevant after two children, a move to Florida, a divorce and losing a hosting stint on Bravo’s Tim Gunn’s Guide To Style. And hey, why not?  She still looks great and fresh-faced.

Adepero Oduye

Looks: Like a Teenager

Real Age: 33

This Brooklyn native made a big splash in her role as a lesbian teenager in the groundbreaking film Pariah.  Yes, this 33 year old actress played a character almost 20 years younger than her, and was very much convincing doing so.

Stacey Dash

Looks: 30

Real Age: 46

Yes, we had to include the obvious on this list. Stacey Dash is still the poster child for aging extremely well. The Clueless star and mother of two can easily play characters 15-20 years younger.

Naomi Campbell

Looks: 31

Real Age: 42

I guess it doesn’t hurt that Ms. Campbell has been living the glamorous life since the age of 16, doesn’t have children, and is now dating a billionaire. The gorgeous supermodel is known for her killer legs and is still one of the most sought-after faces in the world.
