14 Age-Defying Celebrities Who Must Be Drinking an Elixir of Eternal Youth
There are actors that have been around for decades. They act in our favorite TV series and movies and it seems that age just passes them by. Many of these actors became popular in the late ’90s and have experienced growing popularity year after year. Somehow, they’ve managed to stay as young as they were 10 or 20 years ago!
Bright Side tried to figure out the secret behind the eternal youth of these celebrities. Here are several photo collages of actors and singers that compare how they looked when they first came on the scene compared to today.
1. Jennifer Lopez
It seems like Jennifer Lopez hasn’t changed at all over the last 15 years. At age 48, she looks as gorgeous as she always has. The successful singer and actress is famous for her success in everything. She does yoga and meditates every day. Her diet excludes alcohol, fried and fatty foods, and caffeine. The celebrity promotes a healthy lifestyle, does sports, and never smokes. The duration of her everyday sleep is 10 hours. Is that the secret to eternal youth?
2. Jared Leto
No one would guess that this handsome guy with deep blue eyes is already 46 years old. Very few people know that Jared Leto is a vegetarian. In his opinion, it’s this choice that helps him preserve his youthful look.
3. Gwen Stefani
The beloved song, Don’t Speak has turned 23 this year, but its singer hasn’t changed at all since its release. A healthy lifestyle, organic food, and sports (gym and boxing) help the singer stay young. Additionally, she protects her skin from the sun with the help of SPF cosmetics every day and moisturizes it with baby lotion.
4. Halle Berry
Halle Berry keeps amazing us with her perfect body and beautiful skin. Believe it or not, the actress has already turned 51. After the doctors discovered she had diabetes, Halle started to monitor her diet carefully. She also does sports 3 times a week, giving preference to cardio training and boxing.
5. Gwyneth Paltrow
It seems that Gwyneth Paltrow’s elegance increases with age. The actress follows a strict nutrition regimen. After a late miscarriage, her doctor recommended that she exclude harmful products from her diet — those included bread, wine, sugar, etc. Gwyneth got so involved in healthy eating that she started to publish books with healthy recipes. She trains 5 times a week (her exercises includes 45 minutes of cardio and 45 minutes of strength exercises). The actress prefers to use organic cosmetics in her everyday life and seldom wears makeup.
6. Keanu Reeves
Who could ever guess that Keanu Reeves is already 50? Only a couple of grey hairs in his beard hint at his real age. This kind actor doesn’t ever feel sorry for himself and undergoes intense training in the gym daily. Surfing and horseback riding are also some of his hobbies. He gives preference to vegetables over any other food. Maybe that’s the reason why he looks so masculine but young year after year.
7. Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet seems to never change. She still looks as graceful, light and noble as she did in Titanic. The actress doesn’t keep any special diet but she does take some days off from eating before attending an important event. Kate is a fan of homemade food and that’s why she often cooks herself. She always tries to look natural by choosing light makeup.
8. Liv Tyler
Liv Tyler still has that girlish freshness and warmth she had at the beginning of her carrier. The actress likes to take care of herself very much. She regularly uses various cosmetic items and hair conditioner. According to Tyler, she uses as many creams on her face and body as her celebrity-father Steven Tyler does. A balanced diet is also among her beauty secrets. Additionally, cycling helps to keep her body fit.
9. Gabrielle Union
Gabrielle Union is perceived as an always-smiling, cheerful girl even if her passport shows her age of 45 years. This age is reflected neither on her face nor on her character. The actress thinks that it’s her habit of going on dates with younger men that helps her to stay young. Additionally, Gabrielle doesn’t like to wear makeup daily and drinks 1.45 liters of pure water every day.
10. Elijah Wood
Elijah Wood is called an ageless person. Meanwhile, he has already turned 37. The actor doesn’t give any direct answers to questions about his eternally young appearance — instead, he laughs it off. He probably knows the secret to eternal youth, he’s just not telling us!
11. Eva Mendes
Are we the only ones who think Eva Mendes looks younger and younger with age? The actress starts her mornings with a glass of lukewarm water mixed with lemon juice and not with coffee like many of us do. Eva prefers to use pink water for washing her face — it has very good moisturizing qualities. Additionally, jogging and eating minimal amounts of meat are her personal secrets for staying youthful and fresh.
12. Jennifer Aniston
We are so used to seeing Jennifer Aniston as fresh and young that the announcement about her recent 49th birthday celebration came as a shock to many. Practicing sports, eating healthy food, and taking vitamins and apple cider vinegar in the morning, all help Jenn stay young and unaffected by age. The actress also takes good care of her hair since her hairdo is as famous as she is!
13. Pharrell Williams
Pharrell Williams, being 45 years old, looks as if he has just turned 25. The celebrity himself says that all you need to do is stay happy and clap your hands from joy. That’s his secret! Additionally, the singer washes his face with cold water daily and uses facial creams.
14. Enrique Iglesias
Enrique Iglesias managed to keep his boyish look throughout all the years that we have known him. Can the secret lie in his long-lasting love story? His relationship with the Russian tennis player Anna Kournikova seems to be having a positive effect on the way Enrique looks and the way he sings. Do you agree?
Bright Side has noticed that all the secrets to staying young lie in doing sports, eating healthily and taking care of oneself from a young age. A positive way of thinking and a cheerful disposition also play a big role. There’s a reason why they say laughter extends life and that inner youth affects one’s appearance.
