17 People Whose Age Is a Real Mystery

When you’re in seventh grade looking like a 60-year-old or a 31-year-old who can pass as a teenager, age becomes a just number indeed. Gifted with the power of disguise, these people can easily fool anyone and keep them guessing about their real age.

People are sharing their unique appearances on the Internet, and Bright Side has picked the most hard-to-believe ones for our readers.

1. I am 42.

2. ’’Me, 14, looking like a 40 year old housewife’’

3. “Believe it or not, I’m 38 in this pic, and this is my 9-year-old son.”

4. “Thought I would post myself... I’m 31.”

5. “My dad holding his son, looking like a tired used car salesman... at 19”

6. “My great-grandfather”

7. “A 22-year-old college student with no social life”

8. “My mom and me in 1995”

9. “Me at 33, looking like a 16-year-old who just got their driver’s license”

10. “Me at 12 going on 30-year-old news anchor”

11. “Went into 7th grade ready for retirement.”

12. “My high school yearbook — this poor soul looked like this in the eighth grade.”

13. “First-grade boy or 40-year-old woman?”

14. “Me, a few months before my eighteenth birthday — already balding”

15. “A photo of my mom when she was about 15 years old”

16. “At 16, I was a seasonal employee at Hot Topic. I got 3 hours a week and spent more with my 20% discount than I made.”

17. “My 14-year-old friend asked me to post him saying no one would believe he’s 14. He’s 14.”
