28 Celebrities You Won’t Believe Are 50 Now (Or Almost There)

Some of these people have a painting that ages for them, like the one that must hang in the 44-year-old Paul Rudd’s attic. (Who is not on this list yet, thank God.) Some of them we grew up with, so they feel timeless to us, like they shouldn’t age ever. But all of them are 50 now — or getting there. The youngest person to make the list was Halle Berry, who I realize is still three years away, but merits recognition anyway for looking amazing. ‘Cause whatever alien semen she’s injecting into her face, I want in. Suck on that, ageism.
