It's like the old saying goes "age is just a number", and it really is. But sometimes numbers are deceiving, just like the ages of some famous celebrities. Whether you blame it on makeup, wardrobe, or personality, some of these celebrities are not who or what they appear to be!
We've loved and looked up to some of these stars, we've even grown up with some of them, and we've become emotionally invested in their lives, but have you ever stopped and wondered how old they all are? Scrolling through Instagram and seeing pictures of Ferraris as push presents or having a company netted at almost $1 billion; have you ever wondered how old Kylie Jenner is? Or seeing pictures of Sofia Richie on a private jet with her much older boyfriend and wondering how old she is? Well, your mind is likely about to be blown by some of these entries. Scroll down to find out the age of some of your celebrity favorites!
16 Kylie Jenner - 20 Years Old
11 years ago we were introduced to Kylie Jenner, only 9 years old. Little did we know what an impact she would have on the world, in every way. We've grown up with her on our screens, watched her grow up and turn into this social media superstar! She is known and loved for her impressive selfies, lip kits, and overall interesting lifestyle. With her life seeming like a dream, it seems that sometimes we forget that Kylie is only 20 years old! That's right- 20 years old!
With her fast-paced lifestyle, a large variety of supercars, and the recent addition to her family - her daughter - sometimes it seems almost impossible for Kylie to be so young. It doesn't help that seemingly overnight she grew up and aged about 20 years, which fans blame on her excessive amount of makeup! Now with a daughter in tow, it only proves that looks are deceiving!
15 Bella Thorne - 20 Years Old
I look at pictures of Bella Thorne and I cannot even believe who I'm looking at. I remember Bella with her blonde hair and freckles, looking so young and so innocent. How things have changed!
Bella first rose to fame when her show, Shake it Up, premiered on the Disney Channel. I know, another Disney star gone wild, right? She was 13 years old when she started filming the show and we instantly fell in love with how adorably quirky she was. As we look at her now, it's hard to believe that she's only 20 years old! She's been a talking point in the media lately with her "hot mess" attitude, her head-scratching fashion choices, and her much older and questionable boyfriend.
14 Bella Hadid - 21 Years Old
There is no chance that Bella Hadid is a name that someone doesn't recognize in 2018! She has become a wildly successful model having walked for big names such as Chanel, Givenchy and Victoria's Secret, while also gracing the cover of fashion magazines such as Vogue and Glamour Magazine. All this success and only 21 years old! Talk about wild!
If her modeling career wasn't already impressive, let's just talk about her entourage of friends, shall we?! Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski... Just to name a few! I don't mean to name drop here but that's okay, I'll keep going! Her sister is Gigi Hadid, her mom is famous model Yolanda Hadid, and she dated The Weeknd for a little while. What a ride Bella Hadid is having! Understatement of the year!
13 Demi Lovato - 25 Years Old
Camp Rock, Joe Jonas, Barney, Disney Channel... The four words I would use to describe Demi Lovato in a game of charades! We've all known and loved her since her days on Barney and Friends with her then BFF Selena Gomez! Since then she has evolved into this powerhouse that has become such an inspiration to so many.
She has dealt with addiction, an eating disorder, depression, self-harm, and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Having gone through all of this at only 25 years old, she has still paved the way for her recovery! Maybe it's the makeup or maybe it's the wardrobe but I still can't get over Demi only being 25 years old!
12 Lorde - 21 Years Old
She has been known to run in Taylor Swift's girl squad, she has won 2 Grammy Awards, and she is incredibly mature, but hold on to your hats because you will be shocked to find out that Lorde is only 21 years old! I know, I'm just as in shock as you are! We first met her when she was about 17 years old and, even then, her age was a huge shock to many! I can only guess that her dark makeup, dark clothing, and very long dark hair ages her, making us all believe that she is way older (and more mature) than she actually is.
11 Ariel Winter - 20 Years Old
This one is a huge shock to a lot of people, especially Modern Family fans. Ariel came to fame back in 2009 when she booked the role of Alex Dunphy on the hit TV series, Modern Family. She was this cute little 9 year old with rectangle glasses and straight brown hair. Just like her character, Ariel's look was a little more "nerdy". Rewind to a couple of years ago where Ariel made headlines for her more-than-questionable fashion choices. She's been in tabloids because of her choice of daisy duke shorts that ride up her rear, cropped tops that some might consider too cropped, and cleavage that was just a little too shocking for most. Now 20 years old, I think you would be in shock to see the before and after photos!
10 Hailey Baldwin - 21 Years Old
The Baldwin family has been famous for many years! With famous actors and comedians Alec, Stephen, William, and Daniel Baldwin, there was no way they would have kids and one of them wouldn't shine! Enter Hailey Baldwin! The daughter of Stephen Baldwin; Hailey originally was interested in becoming a professional ballerina but injured her foot and her dream was cut short! She ended up signing with Ford modeling agency and booking some magazine covers. I don't think even she could've prepared for the stardom that would follow.
At only 21 years old, Hailey has walked in Milan Fashion Week, Paris Fashion Week, London Fashion Week, and New York Fashion Week for big names such as Tommy Hilfiger, Elie Saab, and Dolce & Gabbana. Her older look has been scrutinized by people accusing her of getting surgery done to her cheekbones and lips but she has denied those accusations.
9 Sofia Richie - 19 Years Old
If Sofia Richie doesn't sound familiar to you then, honestly, you're probably not a millennial! For those from an older generation, I'm sure Lionel Richie or Nicole Richie might sound more familiar - Sofia is the daughter of Lionel Richie and sister to Nicole Richie!
She has recently come into the limelight because of her high profile relationship, her high profile friends (like Hailey Baldwin and Paris Jackson), and her past relationship with Justin Bieber. Considering her modeling career, the fact that she is dating 34-year-old Scott Disick (baby daddy to Kourtney Kardashian's 3 kids), and her overall appearance, you would assume that Sofia is much older. Well, I am here to tell you that you could not be more wrong because Sofia is only 19 years old! Let that sink in!
8 Noah Cyrus - 18 Years Old
It wasn't until recently that we even thought about Noah Cyrus, which is pretty surprising considering just how famous her older sister, Miley Cyrus, is and her father, Billy Ray Cyrus. I guess it might just be because Noah is only 18 years old! When her sister first became famous, Noah was only 6 years old and through the years, she was just like any regular kid her age. She broke out in 2017 though, when she released songs with musicians Labrinth, and Marshmello, and even opened for none other than Katy Perry's recent tour!
7 Kate Upton - 25 Years Old
Kate Upton might be the oldest one on this list but how old is old? We got to know her back in 2011 when she shot for a Sports Illustrated Rookie photoshoot and was just 18 years old at the time! Many of you might believe that the actress is in her 30s but you'll be surprised to find out that Kate is only 25 years old! Her career has stayed steady with not only her modeling but also her acting! She has appeared in several movies and was even the main star of The Other Woman alongside actresses Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. She also recently married her baseball pitcher boyfriend Justin Verlander, and is happily in love!
6 Shawn Mendes - 19 Years Old
He is talented, he is sweet, he has young teenage girls screaming his name, he is Shawn Mendes! Honestly, I'm obsessed with his voice and his songs are so incredibly catchy - I just can't get enough of Shawn! His recent success, after starting off on Vine posting covers of songs, is not surprising but his age definitely is. At only 19 years old, Shawn has 29 million followers on Instagram, 2 albums, 3 tours, and a heart of gold! He is involved with many philanthropies, raising money for DoSomething.org, Pencils of Promise, and the American Red Cross. I'm pretty sure that at 19, I was sitting at home trying to figure out how to make ramen noodles!
5 Camila Cabello - 21 Years Old
Quirky, relatable, and honest, Camila has captured the hearts of millions around the world. Her adorable fan girl moments with stars like Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, and Sarah Jessica Parker make us feel like she's just one of us! She started off on X Factor where she auditioned, made it past a few rounds, and then was eliminated. Eventually, she was brought back with a couple other girls and formed the girl group, Fifth Harmony. The group came in 3rd place but soon signed with a record label and were off to work. 1 EP and 2 albums later, it was announced that Camila was leaving the group to pursue her own solo career. Lucky for us, we got songs like Havana and Never Be The Same off her first solo album (and we just can't get them out of our heads). So much fame for the newly aged 21-year-old! Wishing her many years of success!
4 Paris Jackson - 19 Years Old
If you were asking yourself if Paris has any relation to the Jackson family, then you would be 100% correct! Paris Jackson is the middle child of Michael Jackson's 3 kids! We've only recently gotten to know her through her new modeling career when, in 2017, she signed with IMG Models. She has appeared in the MyCalvins campaign for Calvin Klein, and has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, but why has it taken so long for her career to take off? The reasoning for that is because Paris might appear like she is in her late 20s but the model is only 19 years old! So her career is actually just beginning because, well, so is her life!
3 KJ Apa - 20 Years Old
Redheads only account for 2% of the world's population, making them hidden gems, essentially! So it's no wonder then that when KJ Apa appeared, people went crazy for him! Playing the role of Archie Andrews on the hit CW show, Riverdale, it was like they had taken the comic book drawing of Archie and brought him to real life (Riverdale is based off the Archie comics). So far he's a hidden gem, is attractive, but did I mention that he has an accent? The actor was born and raised in New Zealand. Now having three things going for him, what more could make all the young girls fall in love with KJ? How about the fact that at the start of the series he was only 19 years old! Now 20 years old, KJ looks no younger than a 30-year-old man. What are the odds that he goes out to a bar and doesn't get carded?!
2 Meghan Trainor - 24 Years Old
Meghan Trainor has been known to write music about women, love, empowerment, and body image so you would just assume she knows about these things from all of her years of experience, right? Well, if by years you mean 24 years, then you would be assuming correctly! At only 24 years old, Meghan has made a name for herself as an inspiration to so many young kids for empowering those who have low self-esteem because of their bodies. She loves to remind young women to embrace their curves and love who they are and what they look like. Fun fact: she recently became engaged to Daryl Sabara, who we all know and love from the Spy Kids movies and his character Juni Cortez!
1 Sasha Pieterse - 22 Years Old
Sasha has become a household name after her role as Alison DiLaurentis on the hit show Pretty Little Liars. On Pretty Little Liars, the majority of the girls and guys were in their mid to late 20s and some were even in their early 30s. It was surprising to find out that Sasha was actually the only actor that was around the age of her high school character. Sasha played Alison from the age of 14 until 21, when the series ended. In recent years, she has been bullied for her weight gain throughout the years the show aired. Her weight gain coupled with the fact that she looks like she's in her late 20s and not 22, her real age, caused even more scrutiny from the public. Late last year, while competing on Dancing with the Stars, she revealed that her weight gain was due to a diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
