Can You Believe Their Age? 15 Female Celebs Who Defy Their Real Number

January 8, 2013  |  
1 of 15

Age is really just a number but sometimes that number can be a good reality, or a harsh one. Some celebrities are blessed with amazing genes and don’t look anywhere near their real age. On the other hand, Mother Time isn’t nice to everyone and there are some celebs who look much older than they really are. Here are 15 celebrities who defy their true age, either for the better or the worse.

Sofia Vergara

Usually when the age of 40 hits, most people, especially women, are left to deal with dreaded wrinkles. However, by looking at Sofia Vergara, you’d never know that she is 40. Her face and body combined just scream youth.


Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen’s smash hit “Call Me Maybe” definitely brought her into the limelight. Despite the teenage-like lyrics in her song, Carly is no teenager. In fact, she is 27 years old!


Meagan Good

If anyone has youth on their side, it’s Meagan Good. The actress doesn’t look a day after 25 but her real age has her clocking in at 31. Meagan is another perfect example of “black don’t crack!”


Judy Eddy/

Heidi Montag

Most people get plastic surgery in order to look more youthful. However, after her extensive plastic surgery, including a nose job, Heidi Montag looks a lot older than she really is. We can’t say that Heidi looks 26 at all.


Rachel Weisz

Actress Rachel Weisz is 40 years old and by looking at her, we can definitely say that she defies age. She always has a youthful glow to her skin. Rachel could definitely pass for being in her 30s.

Brian To/

Alyson Hannigan

At the age of 38, Alyson Hannigan has definitely found her fountain of youth. She looks just as young as she did back in her Buffy and American Pie days. Even being a mom of two still hasn’t put years onto Alyson’s face or body.


Lindsay Lohan

Partying, drugs, and numerous arrests have clearly aged Lindsay Lohan. Even though she’s only 25, she looks about 10 years older. Talk about a bad combination.

Andres Otero/

Zoe Kravitz

Thinking back to the pictures of Zoe Kravitz and her parents prove just how fast time flies. Nowadays Zoe Kravitz is 23 and is making  her name known in Hollywood. However, looking at her now, she still has a very youthful face and could pass as being a teenager.


There isn’t enough criticism, rumors, controversy, or hate that can age M.I.A. The singer/rapper is 37 years old but she truly doesn’t look like her 40’s are just around the corner. Her age marks and wrinkles are M.I.A.

Daniel Tanner/

Rachel Zoe

Even though she just turned 41 this year, Rachel Zoe looks a lot older than she really is. All of the fine lines and wrinkles on her face add a lot of years to her. Botox could help her out!

Jeffrey Clark Grossman/

Lil Kim

Lil Kim is another prime example of plastic surgery gone too far and gone wrong. When she first hit the scene, Lil Kim looked great and had a youthfulness to her. But looking at her now, she doesn’t look 38 at all; 48 is more like it.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana is another black celeb on the list who looks a lot younger than she really is. At 34, Zoe could easily pass for being in her late 20s. Either it’s black don’t crack, or the lack of kids has spared her youth.

Lia Toby/WENN


Adele’s voice is amazing as are her lyrics, and the girl really has everything going for her, except for her looks. Her hairstyles, weight, and clothing choices make her look a lot older than she really is. At just 24 years old, Adele looks like she could be in her 30s.

Adriana M. Barraza / WENN

Jazsmin Lewis

Actress Jazsmin Lewis has a smile that is captivating and an age that will leave you thinking WHAT?! Believe it or not, she is 36 years old, which means that the big 4-0 is coming in just a few years. With her, age ain’t nothin’ but a number.

Judy Eddy/

Cindy Crawford

Model Cindy Crawford’s looks haven’t faded in the slightest. Even though she launched her career decades ago, she still has youth on her side. In fact, Cindy Crawford is 46 years old and a mom of two!

  • atlasshrugged2u

    Cindy Crawford is finally showing age…

  • mlk84

    List lost all credibility with Lindsey Lohan. You were on a roll until that drug face appeared. EPIC FAIL.

  • poetic

    I disagree about MIA. I thought she looked awful.

  • Kayy

    I disagree about the Adele thing. Her weight doesn’t make her look older, the way she DRESSES does. She wears clothes I usually seen worn by women in their later years. She’s got a pretty youthful face. As for Rachel Zoe, theres NO way she’s only 41.

  • sorry but Cindy Crawford looks her age

  • susu

    m.i.a is so beautiful.she does not loook 37 at all

  • Poor Lil’ Kim. Nobody could mess with her back in the day. She ruined it. If you ask me Cindy Crawford looks like she is about 60, especially in that pic…not a good choice there!!

  • Plow

    Sorry, but M.I.A looks like a bad drug habit that drinks.

  • Mary

    Cindy Crawford’s eyes actually make her look older than she is…

  • Lil Kim look like a damn fool!

  • DotMan

    Sorry, you got it wrong, Adele looks in her forties, and late at that.

  • ch

    Megan looks like she had collagen injections. I hope not because she has natural beauty.

  • yolir

    Rachel Zoe looks OLDER than her age. You guys got that one wrong.

    • QuestionsBeforeActions

      that’s what they said.

  • Alyson Hannigan definately look younger then her true age.

  • As a fan of many of the ladies represented here in this article. They are beautiful. But, we have to remember that they truly are the true represents of their age due to them being who they are and having beauty techniques available to them that everyday women do not have they do not have the stress that women who are their age have. Oh! I am sure they have gone through some things and paid their dues, but as for the women who continue to go through and pay their dues age is not kind to them they are unable to buy the expensive cremes that women have who are unable to live the lives they are living. The vacations and not having to worry how you will pay the bills help to make a flawless ageless face. Yes they will age as everyone else does but it won’t be so fast and so hard.

  • mimmy

    where is Jennifer Lopez? that woman is 43 and looks better than a 25 yrs old!

  • GRivs

    Zoe Saldana is actually Dominican, not African-American.

  • Natasha Garcia

    there is no way in God’s name that Rachel Zoe is 41..try again…more like 51!!

  • Troker

    Adele’s critique was kinda harsh. I disagree

  • Shanda

    Her weight has nothing to do with it

  • Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuh Zoe Saldaña it’s not black she’s Hispanic, She was born in the United States but her family it’s DOMINICAN.

    • MsT

      Hispanic is not a race, it’s an ethnicity. Zoe is Hispanic of African descent, as many Hispanics–particularly Dominican–are. In other words, she’s Black,

    • Tamar

      hispanic is a culture not a race…you need to youtube or Google black in latin america and with your last name of cotorreal learn your history…most dominicans are of african ancestry just as most hispanics in south america and the Caribbean are, america got the least amount of slaves, do your research…and before you get on me i’m dominican and haitian…however I know my history

      • Natasha Garcia

        There is a difference Tamar, you are half Dominican and half Hatian. So you are half latina. Hispanic is a culture, but we also us it to describe ourselves. Everyone on the planet has ancestry in Africa, according to science. But understand the term black is reserved for America’s Blacks that ancesters were slaves. Carribean people identify with their should know, as a Haitian, they claim to be Hatians, and not black. Jamaicans are Jamaican. It is only here in America that anyone that does not have a paler skin tone is said to be black. Just because your skin is brown, doesn’t mean you should be labeled as black, just like latina’s with paler skin tone is not labeled white. THANK YOU.

      • notadummy

        Puerto Ricans are also of African ancestry. Geez, some dumb fuxts in the world.

        • You’re dumb

          Exactly….Latin Americans really need to learn their history. Are they that stupid to not know slavery existed in Latin America and the Caribbean. The stupidity makes my brain hurt. They just hate calling themselves black. Idiots.

    • Natasha Garcia

      black latina is not the same as black american. Hispanic is a culture but being hispanic and black does not make one black. there is a huge difference. The culture is not the same. sorry, this is true…I am a black Latina… so I do know!

    • sasha

      LMAO REALLY? Black is Black I dont care what language they speak….Hispanics are the result of the white man raping the black woman..mulattos ..Whom most people consider Black

      • Guest

        People have a real misconception of Dominicans background, unless you actually know just don’t very simple. First learn about Tainos, yes there is a large dark skin Dominicans, that’s right we don’t refer to them as black, dark skin Dominicans, Africans were brought to the Dominican Republic they are not the main descents of Dominican people, Dominicans majority if you ever actually been to the country you know that there a wide variety I’m tired of people getting surprise I’m Dominican just because I’m light skinned or like my mom light skin and blonde, if black is black then why are there two separate boxes for African American and Hispanic, I’m pretty sure Zoe Saldana checks Hispanic

  • JaneJane

    Saying Lindsey looks 10 years older than her 25 years, is an insult to all 35 year olds. The look is called drug addicted not older!

  • Cindy Crawford still looks good!! & as much as I love Lil Kim, I’m so disappointed with all those surgeries she had… she used to be so pretty!

    • Me

      Cindy Crawford is beautiful! However I see a 40 year old woman when I look at her. As does my little sister who doesn’t even know who she is. I would have to say she looks her age but great for her age. I can only hope to be that beautiful when I’m in my 40s.

  • What would make Rachel Zoe look her age is to eat something, the lady is a stick. And as far as Adele I think you could have left out her weight being one of the reasons she looks older. Everything else was right but her weight? Please……

    • lu

      Weight tends to make people look younger and youthful. That’s why people get fillers. I for one am shocked that adele is 24.

    • Me

      Lol “Rachel Zoe needs to eat something” total insult to the woman’s weight and you associating it with why she looks older. Followed by a defense for Adele who is obviously over weight. This was a very hypocritical statement.

      • J Mc

        Touche you’re right

  • SociableHermit

    Wow. Because Rachell Zoe LOOKS HER AGE, she can “benefit from Botox”? I’m disappointed that such irresponsible, mysogynist journalism comes from a site that supposedly caters to women.

    • dddooonnnttt

      This whole article, even the portions praising certain women, is not doing anythng to further us as women. It’s still all about what we look like. SIGH!

    • KellyMarie

      Sorry, but Rachel Zoe looks a lot older than 41. Her skin looks like it could use a boost, the lines around her mouth and forehead make her look older. Being someone who works in the skincare industry, if she came in to see me, I would think she was more like 45 on up. Plus, she’s super skinny, which can make you look even older. I’ve seen 40/41 year olds who look a lot better than she does.

  • Sagittarius81

    I’m 31 and people mistake me for a 19 year old. I was with my daughter at an Old Navy store a year ago and this old lady gave me a card to a place for teen parents to get counseling and I showed her my card, my driver’s license to show her I’m 30 and was born in 1981. She apologized. Goes to show black don’t crack.

    • dddooonnnttt

      Wow, that woman was out of line.

      • Oblivion92

        No she wasn’t, she was mistaken. But she was trying to help, she was not insulting her, she thought she was a teen mom. So her intentions were good.

    • atlasshrugged2u

      You go girl!!

  • What did Lil Kim do to her face? She looks like the joker. I can’t believe it. 🙁

  • I need to see them without makeup on

  • I need to see them without makeup on

  • I need to see them without makeup on

    • realadulttalk

      How many of these people would you not recognize if they were makeup free?

  • Geez MIA looks rough & what’s with the blue contacts??

  • Geez MIA looks rough & what’s with the blue contacts??

  • Toya Sharee

    I love M.I.A. and her personality and flow make her appear young as well. She could give Nicki Minaj work on the mic.

  • rzakia

    Lindsey Lohan is the most ran through 25 year old I’ve seen in some time. She looks rough. And wtf is she doing to her lips? She just looks a mess.

    • Sagittarius81

      Last year Lindsay even gotten mistaken for Blondie singer Debbie Harry who is 67, now you know that’s f**ked up!

    • realadulttalk

      That hard life–I have a cousin who is 15 years younger than me but has be an alcoholic since she was a teen. If we stood side by side you’d swear up and down that she was no less than 20 years older than me.

  • Noire Ebène

    I don’t agree about Heidi Montag, she looks like she’s more than 26.

    • mac

      that’s what the writer said.

    • The whole article is about women who don’t look their age. Keywords: DON’T and LOOK

    • Jazz

      she looks like she’s made from cheap plastic.
