31 Celebrity Pairs Who Are Surprisingly the Same Age

Madonna and Ellen DeGeneres

Leave it to celebrities to make it extremely difficult to tell what age they actually are. With actors and actresses, the characters that they portray on TV or in movies are often so much younger than their actual age -- making it that much harder to determine when they were born. Tricky age deception aside, it's even more shocking when we discover that two celebs we would have never paired together turn out to be the same age. This just goes to show how no one ages in the same way. What 30 looks like for one could be completely different for another, and we're surprised at how many beloved celebrities are actually the same age.

Some celebs look really, really good for their age. (Our favorite actors and artists must have access to the fountain of youth, because it's hard to believe that certain stars could actually be the same age as others.) It's also crazy to think that two different celebrities that have had such different career paths could be at the same exact stage in their lives. However, let's all remember, age is just a number, and what we should really be focusing on is their accomplishments.

But ... for now, we're going to concentrate on their ages. 

There's no more hiding from the truth, celebs, and if there's one thing to take away from this it's that we should never judge someone's age by their appearance. Looks can be tricky! And so, we are here to put an end to the mystery. Here are 31 celeb pairs that are shockingly the same age. Get ready -- most of these are hard to believe.

  • Ariana Grande & Cardi B
