10 Celebrities Who Are Way Older Than You Thought

There are lists all over the place of celebs who are much younger than you'd think: Adele, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, etc. It's a saucy topic. We love premature aging, especially in society's most beautiful members (the glitterati of Hollywood). But how about those celebs who are preserved in amber (and we don't mean Will Smith, who we personally think doesn't look as young as everyone seems to think?) - they aren't as often heard of.

There are two types of older-than-you'd-think celebs. There are those who, thanks to exercise, diet, good genes and LOTS of money, have somehow managed to preserve the youthfulness most of us sacrifice to boring jobs and bad habits. Then there are those who don't look "young and beautiful" but just look really physically immature for their age. It's not that they're still cute 'n' cuddly, it's that they're like a different entity altogether.

If you're curious enough to turn the tired old "look how badly these celebs have aged!" on its head, stick around, and dive right into 10 celebs who are much older than you'd think with us.

6 M.I.A. (40)

5 Sandra Bullock (51)

4 Dylan McDermott (54)

3 Jared Leto (44)

2 Ariana Grande (22)

1 Jason Earles (38)

Some of you might have already known this, but some of you might not have. Jason Earles, who played Miley Cyrus' goofy brother on Hannah Montana, will turn 40 soon. That means that at the time of filming (2006-2011), Jason Earles was 28-33. In the show, however, he was playing a high-school boy. We're not quite sure why he was chosen above all the other age-appropriate actors (Miley Cyrus was presumably more or less the same age as the character she played), but he did a good job as Jackson, giving lots of laughs and a genuine warmth with his sister on the show. So we guess the casting agent for the show did a stellar job, in the end!
