Paul Rudd has been in some of our absolute favorite movies over the years. From Clueless, to Knocked Up, to Ant- Man—he’s been a huge part of our movie-going lives for over two decades. However, he’s also left us with one eternal, ever-burning question: How has that man not aged a day? Paul Rudd’s age (or rather…his agelessness) is a topic of conversation among many of his fans, mainly because he looks almost exactly the same as he did when he first emerged onto the scene as Cher’s love-sick former step brother in 1995. And in honor of his 50th birthday (which is today, April 6th) we’ve compiled the below gallery of photos to prove that the actor may actually be an ageless vampire.
Seriously…could you guess Paul Rudd’s age in basically any of the below photos?
Paul Rudd starred alongside Jennifer Aniston in 1998’s The Object of My Affection, a movie about a woman (Aniston) who’s unlucky in love and decides to have a baby with her gay best friend (Rudd). It’s peak ’90s movie.
This was Rudd a full three years later at a GQ party. No signs of change.
2004 Paul Rudd
This was Rudd at the premiere of 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Not only did this movie firmly establish Rudd as a comedic force to be reckoned with, but he looks, well, decidedly fresh.
The actor (pictured with his I Love You, Man costar, Rashida Jones) was officially 40 when this photo was taken. This is also about the time any discernible aging truly stops.
Rudd reunited with his The Object of My Affection costar, Jennifer Aniston, for the 2012 comedy Wanderlust. Both stars look uncannily like the did back in 1999.
But seriously. HOW?
Okay, well at least we now know he can grow facial hair. Vampires can’t do that…right?
But—is he actually getting younger?
Yes. He’s officially getting younger.
2019 Paul Rudd
That’s right—the above is a photo of Paul Rudd over 20 years older than when this list began. We’re both spooked and intrigued.
At any rate, Happy Birthday, Paul Rudd! But also, please tell us your secret.
