Nobody escapes time, but Hollywood seems to have been kind to some more than others.
Whether you guessed their birthdays based on roles, public personas or wrinkles, you’ll be surprised that these top celebs are the same age.
Adele and Taylor Swift – 27 this year
With her cowboy boots and curly golden hair, Taylor Swift personified country pop in the early 2000s as a fresh-faced teen. On the soulful end of the music spectrum, however, nobody would have suspected that blues queen Adele was the same age as the country princess.
Both turn 27 this year, and Adele is currently mom to 4-year-old Angelo and has fans on tenterhooks for news about her touring future, while Taylor’s single ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ has effectively broken the internet.
Elle Macpherson and Courtney Love – 53
Elle Macpherson is open about her love of clean eating and healthy living. Having released her own range of supplements in 2015, the veteran supermodel follows a balanced diet of fruit, vegetables, and hormone-free protein, and prefers hiking or swimming outdoors to pumping iron in the gym.
Conversely, Courtney Love has endured the demons of the sex, drugs & rock ‘n roll lifestyle. The music icon is still an industry figurehead, but looks more a punk/grunge dowager than princess at 53.
Jim Parsons and Andrew Lincoln – 44
This one is the most unbelievable, with the real mystery being what Jim Parsons is doing to achieve that unearthly youthful glow. The Big Bang Theory star is a shocking 44 years old and doesn’t look past his 20s, but his secret might be no secret at all, and just the benefits of good genetics.
Versatile star Andrew Lincoln (Love Actually, The Walking Dead), on the other hand, is grey-streaking his way to silver fox, with no complaints from his fans.
Jamie Lee Curtis and Michelle Pfeiffer – 59
Both Hollywood powerhouses, these ladies prove that talent never fades. But ever since her days as Catwoman, Michelle Pfeiffer has cemented her status as a sex symbol, whereas Jamie Lee Curtis’s roles in Halloween and The Fog have made her more of a quirky scream queen.
Although both are 59 this year, it’s reputation that alters perception, and we’ll always think of one in a leather bodysuit, and the other in a pair of aged overalls.
