It's a fact that celebrities have enough money to grant them access to the best dermatologists and skincare routines in the world. This obviously gives them an advantage when it comes to preventing the sneaky signs of aging that are bound to appear on our skin and body. However, money isn't everything, and while it can certainly help keep the skin look youthful and fresh, it's not a guarantee.
Truth is, some people are more blessed than others in the genes department. We all know at least a handful of celebrities who haven't aged a day since the early 1990s. And actress Alyson Hannigan is a great example of that! Is she a vampire? Does she possess the secret fo the fountain of youth? Either way, here are ten pictures that prove Alyson Hannigan is simply immune to the passage of time.
10 The Picture of Youth In 2005...
2005 was the year the first season of How I Met Your Mother hit screens. Audiences immediately fell in love with the characters, portrayed by a beloved cast, which included Alyson Hannigan as Lily, alongside other fan favorites like Cobie Smulders, Jason Seigel, and Neil Patrick Harris.
At the time, Hannigan was only 31 years old, and even back then, she still looked like she was in her early 20s. Fans of Buffy, The Vampire Slayer who tuned in to watch HIMYM were probably surprised by the fact Alyson looked exactly like she did back in 1997 when the Slayer and friends became part of television.
9 ...and nothing changed in 2015!
Fast forward ten years, and the 41-year-old actress looks exactly like she did on her promo picture for How I Met Your Mother ten years later. The smile is the same, the skin is absolutely perfect, and there is not a wrinkle in sight. Plus, her signature red hair is just as shiny as ever!
2015 didn't see Hannigan make a comeback to the small or big screens. The actress probably chose to take a small break in-between projects, since she was recovering from a pretty full couple of years. The point is - the stunning woman doesn't change!
8 Beautiful in 2006...
In 2006, Alyson was busy enjoying the growing success of How I Met Your Mother, which was quickly becoming a hit comedy series for lovers of the genre. Additionally, Hannigan voiced the character of Hottie Penguin in the movie Farce of The Penguins and had a starring role in the comedy Date Movie.
Looking just as beautiful as ever with her bright green eyes, fans might remember this as the time when Alyson went for a darker hair color. Whatever she chooses to go with always works, and this picture is just another example.
7 ...and gorgeous in 2016!
How is it even possible these two pictures are ten years apart? We still don't know how Alyson Hannigan found a way to trick nature and science as we know it, but here we are. Plus, the proof is in the pudding! This picture was taken back in 2016 when the actress was 42-years-old (no, we're not lying).
Hannigan had a busy year, starring in two movies - Do You Take This Man and The First Wives Club - and going for a swim three times a week at the fountain of youth. The second part of that sentence might not be the truth, but it sure seems like it!
6 A vision in 2007...
Back in 2007, How I Met Your Mother was already going three seasons strong, and the fans didn't seem to get enough of the adventures coming out of the show.
Similarly, we also couldn't get enough of Alyson's new look, since this was the year the actress adopted bangs and still looked like the young college student from later seasons of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
5 ...and still a vision in 2017!
Ten years later, in 2017, Alyson was again rocking her beautiful long red hair and, at 43-years old, she was giving us just as much youth with her beautiful skin and smile as she did when she was in her early 20s.
If she was ever going to start aging, we'd expect it to be around this time, but once again, the beautiful actress remained impervious to the passing of the years.
4 A stunner in 2008...
Fans of Alyson Hannigan were probably becoming impatient in 2008 since the actress wasn't involved in any other movie or television project aside from the hit show How I Met Your Mother.
However, that didn't seem to bother them too much, since they could at least witness the anti-aging miracle that was Hannigan. Is it just us, or does she look even younger in this picture than she did in 2007?
3 ...and glowing in 2018!
How I Met Your Mother aired its final season in 2014, which left Hannigan with plenty of time to dedicate to her career after so many years playing the loving and hilarious Lily on the show.
In 2018, the 44-year-old actress used her beautiful voice in Robot Chicken and starred in two movies, You Might Be The Killer and Man of the House, all while looking like the very same person she was when the first episode of How I Met Your Mother hit the screens.
2 A great year in 2009...
2009 was a fantastic year for Alyson. She gave birth to her first child, Satyana Marie, with husband Alexis Denisof, whom she married back in 2003, and co-starred alongside her both in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and How I Met Your Mother.
She was also involved in two other television projects, The Goode Family and Tit For Tat, aside from continuing to make audiences laugh as Lily in HIMYM.
1 ...and an even better one in 2019!
And we finally reach 2019, the year we're currently in, and indisputable evidence that Alyson Hannigan simply doesn't age. If you need a minute, feel free to go back and forward on this list until you finally reach this picture.
2019 has been nothing but kind to Alyson Hannigan. She played Dr. Ann Possible in Kim Possible and had several roles in projects like television shows Pure, Fancy Nancy, and TV movie Abducted: The Mary Stauffer Story. The actress also has another handful of projects coming up, but our guess is, she'll never look a day past 25!
