19 Celebs Who We Didn’t Expect to Turn 40 in 2020

2 years ago

It feels so weird to think that J.Lo recently turned 50. We also didn’t expect to find out that Kevin from Home Alone is turning 40 this year! We might think that the boys and girls from our childhood movies never get older, but that’s not true: today, they could probably already play their characters’ parents! And some celebs depicted in this compilation still look so young, we wish we knew what elixir of youth they’re using.

Bright Side has studied tons of photos of celebrities who are about to turn or who have just turned 40. We just can’t understand how Kevin grew up so fast and what the others are doing to be so... ageless.

The older people get, the less we ask about their age: some of them are ashamed of this, others aren’t afraid of aging. But the celebs from this compilation never hide their age. They’re beautiful, successful, happy, and... 40 years old. Let them be as wise as they are now, during every stage of their lives!

What criteria defines a successful life? What do you think a person should achieve by the age of 40?

Oh God! I cannot believe that the little girl from the Adams Family has turned 40!! Actually she still looks pretty young :p


Macaulay Culkin should have stayed a 9-year-old. I mean, how could the Home Alone super-kid become a 40-year-old man??? ?


WOW! Asa Butterfield (Otis from Sex Education) is also a huge surprise. Ok, he hasn't turned 40 yet, but look at him in Hugo
