Time marches on. Faces sag. Wrinkles spread. Hair, if you’re male, moves from the top of the head to less desirable places. The body gives out and what you assumed was youthful invincibility turns into rapid decay. You are going to die. Unless you’re an entertainer. We don’t want to just assume plastic surgery is the cause in every case here, but some celebrities know how to look young — generally unchanging from first blush with celebrity to well into the time when everyone born at the same time as they is changing into sweatpants. Here are some that keep on keepin’ on, against all odds.
Paul Rudd, 46
Rudd isn’t that old, but he still looks generally the same as he did 20 years ago when he did “Clueless,” his movie debut. It isn’t just that his looks have for the most part not changed; he has that same youthful archness — that quality he brings to every role of being self-aware enough to be funny without tumbling into bitter parody. Alicia Silverstone could have bagged any rent-a-hunk for her first romantic lead. Instead she got someone cool, who would stand the test of time, in more ways than one.
