Stars Who Are Older Than You Think

Some of them might still be in high school (on TV), but these stars are remarkably older than you think!

Carly Rae Jepsen, 26
Carly Rae Jepsen might be 18-year-old Justin Bieber’s protegee, but the Canadian songstress is much older than you think. Despite having the most popular tween-friendly pop song of the summer “Call Me Maybe,” Carly Rae is actually pushing 30. She turns 27 on November 21st!

Cory Monteith, 30
Even though he only just graduated from high school on Glee, Cory Monteith is just a few years shy of attending his 15th high school reunion in real life. Maybe there’s something about being Canadian that keeps we Northerners looking so young. Cory is a native of Victoria, BC.

Sarah Hyland, 21
Maybe it’s just how exceptionally good she is at playing a hormonal teenager on Modern Family, but we couldn’t believe that Sarah Hyland is 21 in real life. In fact, she’s about to turn 22 on November 24th!

Bianca Lawson, 33
Bianca Lawson has been attending high school for over 20 years. The Pretty Little Liars star and former star of Saved by the Bell: The New Class still looks like a teenage dream at 33. Lucky girl.

Gabriel Mann, 40
All this time we were giving Madeleine Stowe all the credit for looking fabulous at 54, but it turns out that her costar Gabriel Mann, who plays the lovable Nolan Ross, is looking pretty good for his age too. Dude is 40!

M.I.A., 37
Maybe it’s her penchant for eccentric outfits and totally wild music videos like “Bad Girls,” but we were totally shocked to find out that M.I.A. is 37 years old.

Gwen Stefani, 43
Okay, we knew Gwen Stefani had to be at least in her 30s, given that she’s had one of the most amazing careers as both the frontwoman for No Doubt and as a solo artist and has managed to build a family in between, but 43?! The fact that she still has perfect abs and gorgeous skin makes us feel a little guilty about not hitting the gym more often.

Kate Beckinsale, 39
Kate Beckinsale is still considered one of the sexiest women alive by both men’s and women’s magazines alike. That gives us faith that getting older might mean we’ll only get better looking… right?

Randy Jackson, 56
We guess we should start believing Randy Jackson a little more when he starts getting all “Back in my day!” on American Idol. Dawg is 56!
