Secrets of Age-less Celebrities

Chadwick Boseman

Yes, as tough as it is to believe—due to the fact that he has the washboard abs and rippling deltoids of a man half his age—Chadwick Boseman is 42 years old. Black Panther himself maintains this enviable physique by dedicating three days each week to HIIT circuit training and two days to martial arts training, particularly capoeira and jiu-jitsu. In fact, earlier this year, he teased a dancelike fight-training routine on his Instagram.

Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum's secret for maintaining her eternally sprightly glow is simple: She sleeps—a lot. About 10 hours each night, in fact. "I go to sleep pretty much when the children go to sleep," she told Hollywood Life.

Jeff Goldblum 66,

Let's put it this way: Jeff Goldblum is the same age as Mickey Rourke and John Goodman. And it's just the simple things that have allowed him to age so much more gracefully than his peers. "I just get a good night's sleep. I wash my face with soap. I like to work out a little bit. I try to eat right. I've stayed clean. I don't really drink or smoke," he told GQ. "I try to keep my perspective wholesome."

Winona Ryder, 47

Yes, we also find it impossible to believe that Winona Ryder is 47. Another impossible-to-believe fact? Ryder maintains her impermeable agelessness by using lip balm and sunscreen—and nothing else. Between Ryder and Rudd, jeez, now might be a good time to invest in some sunscreen.

Cate Blanchett, 49

Boseman, Downey, Jr., Rudd—you could be forgiven for believing that signing a Marvel Cinematic Universe contract is a bona fide holy grail. But Cate Blanchett's secret has nothing to do with film contracts. No, her trick stems from a skincare contract. For the past 14 years, Blanchett has used SK-II facial masks, which she credits for her eternal youth. Normally, we'd be skeptical of such blatant product endorsement, but just look at her. You can't argue with results.

Nicole Kidman, 51

Nicole Kidman has a porcelain complexion so smooth it belongs in a museum. Her secret? Sunscreen. (Yes, another proponent of the stuff…) "Protecting your skin is really what stops you from aging," she told Refinery29.

Brad Pitt, 54

Ageless wonder Brad Pitt's secret is all in his diet. He eats mainly foods that are loaded with omega-3s (like salmon and chia seeds), to fight wrinkles, and phytoceramides (like beets and brown rice), to keep his skin hydrated. Pitt also indulges in eggs and lean meat, to get a healthy dose of amino acids, which help combat damage to skin cells.

Julia Roberts, 51

Julia Roberts, the "World's Most Beautiful Woman" of 2017, as anointed by People, somehow looks exactly the same as she did when she first won the honor, in 1991. (She's won the title a record five times, for what it's worth.) Her secret? It's all in the diet: lean proteins, like salmon, grilled chicken, and eggs; healthy produce, like berries and avocados; and complex carbs, like brown rice. Roberts is also sure to drink at least eight glasses of water each and every day. And if that's not convincing enough, here is proof that Julia Roberts is an eternal goddess. 

Sandra Bullock, 54

Here's a modest proposal, and we're sure you'll agree: Sandra Bullock looks exactly the same as she did in The Proposal, which came out eight years ago. Bullock maintains her youthful essence by maintaining a dedicated exercise regimen—except she has a little trick. Instead of sticking to the same routine, Bullock switches things up every six to eight weeks, so her body never gets used to the workout.

J.K Simmons, 63

Sure, the guy may be a cue ball—not exactly the spitting image of vim and vigor—but have you seen J.K. Simmons lately? Folks, the man is jacked. Those are not the biceps of a 63-year-old man. (We got whiplash double-taking at this image.) Simmons transformed his body through a traditional weight lifting routine: bicep curls, military presses, that sort of thing. His trick, however, is dedication: Simmons is sure to hit the weights at least four days per week.

Mahershala Ali, 44

Moonlight and Luke Cage star Mahershala Ali's abs are so age-defying they landed him a gig typically reserved for men half his age: The Calvin Klein underwear campaign. (Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber were both 21 when they first graced the billboards.) According to an interview with WebMD, Ali maintains his eternal eight-pack by avoiding red meat and dairy and slating in as much cardio as possible, even on his day-to-day: Ali gets around by riding a bike.

Matthew McConaughey, 49

Matthew McConaughey keeps his skin looking spry by making good use of sunscreen. (At this point, we're convinced sunscreen is the elixir of life.) However, the former Sexiest Man Alive doesn't use just any old SPF. As he told Marie Claire UK, he springs for creams that include menthol; apparently, menthol-based products are less greasy and get absorbed by skin easier.

Jennifer Aniston, 49

The original anti-aging goddess swears by two simple tricks: Drinking a lot of water and "getting proper sleep," as she told Elle, which… Look. Sure, hydration and rest are essential, and can shave years off one's visage, as Klum and Leto clearly prove. But 15 years is a stretch. Yes, this photo is from 2002. (And you thought it was taken this year…) In any case, this snapshot can only mean one thing: Jennifer Aniston has some dirt on Father Time. There's simply no other answer.
