Over the years, we have seen that ageing can make or break a career. While it's true that you're only as young as you feel, that doesn't apply to appearance. When it comes to celebrities, so many of them are revered for shallow reasons instead of actual talent. As good as they look today, there's no guarantee they will age remotely as fine as they all hope. We hear all the time about celebrities who have aged like fine wine, but those are a minority compared to those that you can't even recognize anymore.
Father Time is undefeated regardless of how much you take care of yourself or how many surgeries you have to improve your features. For so many of today's younger celebrities, ageing will not be so kind to them. While it's a tricky thing that's unpredictable, we can only guess who will still be charming years from now. Just look at top celebrities from 10 years ago and you will notice that their appearance has drastically changed since then. Some turned out to be late bloomers and got better looking with age, while others left you scared of losing your own youthful looks.
Aside from top notch quality genetics, there are many practices that one could turn to in hopes of looking young for as long as possible. Sadly, not too many people practice those and they just rely on winning the genetics lottery like George Clooney. With today's list, we discuss 15 young celebs guaranteed to age terribly.
15 Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus is another Disney star who should enjoy her younger years as much as possible, since she's probably going to remain youthful for only a short time. Plenty of fans believe that Cyrus has already lost her charm a long time ago, not everyone approved of the changes she went through. Like so many child stars, Cyrus worked to recreate her image by behaving inappropriately.
From raunchy lyrics and steamy videos to twerking performances, the old Miley Cyrus vanished rather quick. While she is far from being unattractive, most believed that she would grow up to be better looking and things appear to be getting worse with age. If Miley ends up taking after her mom, then she's guaranteed to not age so gracefully as the latter already looks much older than she actually is.
14 Ariana Grande
Ever since she broke into the industry, people have been claiming that Ariana Grande looks much younger than he actual age. It was a running joke for years to the point she couldn't escape it. It's been slightly fading away in recent times but the reverse might come true in just a few years.
In the second part of her career, people might start joking that she looks too old for her age. People who look youthful for so long usually age the fastest, so Grande is probably going to be affected the most among those who made it on the list.
At only 24 years old, Grande has already achieved so much and the sky is truly the limit for her. This past year, she was named as one of the 100 most influential people by Time magazine. She is also one of the most followed celebrities with 115.6 million followers, that number is even higher than Kim Kardashian!
13 Chris Brown
Most people will be shocked to learn that Chris Brown is only 28 years old. It seems like he has been around for so long that you would have guessed he is certainly over 30, but the singer is still a few years short. Having been active since 2005, Brown broke into the scene at a young age and has gone through various periods in his career.
One of the most controversial names in recent history, Brown can't seem to escape trouble from domestic abuse to club scuffles, it's pretty impressive that he has managed to remain relevant. For so many years, Brown had been a heartthrob but his status has been slowly fading away and it seems like time will not be so kind to him.
His hideous tattoos and questionable haircuts have definitely not helped his case. You can already see signs of quick aging such as eye bags that have only gotten puffier in recent times. With his newest album being labelled a flop, it seems like Brown has a couple of things to worry about.
12 Blac Chyna
In recent years, Blac Chyna has been making headlines for so many reasons. From her modeling career to her personal life, she always seems to find a way to be relevant. More recently, it's been her breakup with Rob Kardashian that has made her the talk of social media.
A few years ago, she was considered to be one of the hottest models around and enjoyed a strong following but that seems like a lifetime ago now. Her appearance has taken a nosedive from face features to body, Blac Chyna has definitely aged early. There is no shame in aging as we all go through it and it's tough to adjust to, but Chyna hasn't been properly taking care of herself.
Like so many celebrities, she opted for some surgeries that haven't enhanced her appearance, in fact, they did just the opposite. She went from being everybody's crush to an afterthought and we suspect that it will only get worse for her.
11 Sam Smith
Despite being only 25 years old, Sam Smith has already entered his 30s based on his look. The singer has aged about 10 years since he first rose to fame in 2012. Although he is still good looking, Smith is aging at an alarming rate with his hairline receding from one appearance to another. It appears like he will be balding early on, but that's not the only sign that age won't be so kind to him.
He looks significantly different than he did just a few years ago and not necessarily in a good way. It's normal to undergo some changes during that transitional period, but Smith has been affected more than we could have imagined. To his credit, he has developed a strong fan base that appears to be extremely loyal, so his popularity probably won't take a major hit as he gets older.
10 Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato is hotter than ever in more ways than one. With her popularity skyrocketing, she has become one of the most relevant names today. And when it comes to her appearance, she is looking better than we have ever seen her. Lovato is one of the most followed Instagram accounts for a reason, her posts are guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.
But one has to wonder whether she will age like fine wine or become a thing from the past. Looking at photos of her mom today, the latter may be in the books for her. While we all dream of maintaining our looks, that's simply not realistic and Lovato is unlikely to be one of the names who still look as hot years from now. Not to mention that she has already shown signs of early aging at times when her makeup wasn't on point.
9 Farrah Abraham
It seems like Farrah Abraham has been around forever, which is understandable when you consider that she became known for partaking in Teen Mom. Since then, her reputation has only gotten worse due to her many adult tapes that have been released.
Her attempt to become the new Kim Kardashian fell flat as fans saw through her from the start. She turned into a meme instead with people mocking her on social media. Abraham has also been criticized for her immature behavior from her Twitter antics to the way she treats her daughter.
Abraham is already showing visible signs of aging, and it seems like all the plastic surgeries haven't helped one bit. She appears to have gone overboard as her appearance declined as fast as she rose to fame. While many of her features have been affected, none stand out as much as her eyes does as seen in the photo above.
8 Kylie Jenner
We can all agree that Kylie Jenner has matured as fine as one would hope in just a matter of years. Well, that's if you ignore all the blatant surgeries that she has done to completely changed her appearance. A simple Google search will show you that today's Kylie looks like an entirely different person from 3 years ago. That's not to mention her body which has gone through an unnatural transformation from year to year. It has gotten to the point where she has almost reached her sister Kim Kardashian.
With all the surgeries piling up, Kylie will not be everybody's crush like she is today. If history has taught us anything about celebrity beauty, it's the fact these surgeries will always come back to haunt them later on. With Kylie starting off so early, you can expect an early decline and we won't be surprised if she soon becomes unrecognizable.
7 Taylor Swift
At 27 years old, it's impressive that Taylor Swift has already achieved so much success as she has been around for longer than most people know. She has looked mostly the same too, retaining her youthful look year after year without any signs of aging.
But at the end of the day, it all comes down to genetics and judging by parents' photos, Swift is going decline overnight as soon as she hits her 30s. There is no shame in that as we are all bound to get older and nobody is exactly safe, but it's true that some retain their charm without looking too flabby.
Regardless of whether she ages badly or not, Swift is going to be around for a long time. She is one of the most popular singers today and has been for nearly a decade now. It doesn't appear as if her status in the music industry will be taking a hit anytime soon, but the same can't be said about her appearance.
6 Justin Bieber
At 23 years old, it appears like Justin Bieber might not retain that same appeal that he has had since coming into the scene. He's been around since he was 14 and went from being every teen's crush to having adults swoon over him. It hasn't been an easy transition for Bieber who struggled to shed his image as a kid.
In the past couple years, he has gone out of his way to do everything in his power to erase his younger self from our memories by getting into trouble and revamping his appearance. Not to mention the tattoos, even his fans believe that he has gone overboard with his latest additions.
Bieber hasn't aged as gracefully as most would have expected and things will only get worse from here on out. He looks a couple years older than he actually is, so I guess you could say that he got his wish.
5 Emma Stone
Many might think that she is well in her 30s, but Emma Stone has only recently turned 29 years old. She has been one of the top Hollywood actresses in the past few years with a dominant run that earned her an Oscar for her performance in La La Land.
Emma Stone is one of the names who makes it on the list due to genetics. Looking at photos of her parents, we're inclined to believe that she won't be as fine once she is older. Both of her parents haven't aged like fine wine, which is enough reason to think that Emma most likely won't either.
Since she is already an established actress, that will matter very little as long as she knows how to pick her movie roles. If she continues on the same track as she has been, she's likely going to be around for a long time to come.
4 Bella Hadid
Bella Hadid is the less popular and younger sister of Gigi. Some have even labelled her as the less pretty sister, but she did win "Model of the Year" in 2016 and has been nominated once again this year.
Although she may not be quite as popular as her older sister yet, Bella does have 15.6 million followers on Instagram making her one of the most popular models around. She is also the ex-girlfriend of The Weeknd, and some tabloids have recently indicated that the couple may be reuniting.
At 21 years old, Bella looks much older than her age - not necessarily a bad thing but it's a sign that she will age at a fast rate. That's not exactly good news for someone in her profession as models tend to have short careers. With her rising popularity, she might transition into an actress but she's probably better off doing it sooner rather than later.
3 Taylor Lautner
Taylor Lautner rose to fame after starring in Twilight and quickly became one of the top sex icons, but those days are long gone by now. After being voted as one of the sexiest men alive in 2010, Lautner has been on the decline since then while his fanbase has decreased in recent years.
As seen in the photo above, his face has gotten significantly puffier which isn't a good sign considering he is only 25 years old. You can also see that his eyes have aged quite a bit, developing visible bags under them. As for the hairline, it's already been pushed back and that may be a sign that he is balding early.
Not only does Lautner have to worry about saving his looks, but he also has to worry about his professional career. Bigger things were expected from him and he has failed to reach them after getting off to an impressive start.
2 The Weeknd
The Weeknd is having one of the most impressive runs today, having dominated the charts for years. His last album went double Platinum which is very impressive in this day and age since sales have decreased, he also has three number one hits to his name in such a short career.
With his popularity increasing, you can expect him to continue putting out smash hits but it might come at the expense of his sex appeal. He is only 27 years old but is already displaying signs that age probably won't be so good to the singer.
His head has gotten larger while his eyes are somewhat swollen, which isn't exactly a great sign if you are The Weeknd or a fan of his. Although that should matter very little if you are a fan of his music, the industry can be shallow towards singers especially since there are new names coming out every single year.
1 Kristen Stewart
Genetics once again play a major part in selecting Kristen Stewart as part of this list. While she is undoubtedly pretty, photos of her mom have us thinking that Kristen won't be looking young for too long.
That's not a dig at her mom who is good looking as well, but she does look her age, if not older. Stewart looks different depending on her haircut and makeup, while she looks her age most of the time, she does appear to be aging fast in other occasions.
She is someone that people will always view as a young actress and it will be difficult to shed that reputation due to her rise to fame at an early age. She has been involved in major box office hits throughout her career, but none bigger than the Twilight series. Stewart has been one of the highest actresses in Hollywood for the past few years, and that's likely not going to change anytime soon even if her appearance declines as she gets older.
