Celebrities have this almost annoying way of looking younger than they actually are. Whether it’s roles or celebrities on the red carpet, they’ve somehow managed to fall back on the years to continue looking glamorous after being abandoned by people outside the public eye.
There is a host of superstars who look ten years younger than they actually are, and many of them are associated with London. Tom Cruise, Madonna, Holly Willoughby, Amanda Holden, Stanley Tucci, Emily Blunt, and Paul Rudd look exactly the same as they did in 2012.
So how do they do it and what are the connections of many of these Hollywood actors to the British capital?
Looking at the Hollywood star, it is hard to believe that he is over 60 years old. The 59-year-old actor lived in London while he was filming Mission: Impossible 7 .
According to In Touch, an insider who knows Tom well said he found a sense of belonging last year. They said: “Tom loves the rainy weather, the people, the long walks in the city,” the UK insider says and “wants a simpler life” as he gets older. “He’s never had a place to call home before, not really, but he finally found it in London,” the insider continued.
While living in DC, when mask mandates were still a thing, Tom apparently enjoyed anonymity. “If he’s wearing a hat and a mask, he can sneak into bookstores or antique stores and nobody knows it’s him,” the insider explained. “He has a family who lives there as well, which gives him a sense of belonging.”
Many joked that the appearance of young Tom had something to do with a magical formula or even something more sinister. Either way, somehow the veteran action hero still performs plenty of stunts! Magic potion or not, it’s most likely a combination of a healthy diet, free time, exercise, and maybe a light sip and a tuck here and there.
The pop star has long had an affair with the capital, having been married to English director Guy Ritchie for 8 years and still owns a £10m property in Marylebone. The seemingly ageless queen of pop is nowhere near her 63-year-old.
The Like A Prayer singer is still touring and has been in amazing shape throughout her decades-long career. In 1996 she gave credit to Ashtanga yoga for keeping it trim.
The singer is known for her image changes over the years, experimental pop art style and Bowie-like personality transformations that continue to keep her at the forefront of pop culture. The internet seems to agree that part of Madonna’s youthful appearance is due to the work she’s done, but no amount of surgery can keep you fit enough to continue performing the way you do.
She has a long history with DC that played a role in shaping her early career when she studied at the Mountview Academy of Dramatic Art in Peckham. The actress, talented judge, and media host has always deceived her 1.8 million Instagram followers with pictures of her tight physique and seemingly ageless looks.
The 51-year-old’s likes can be much younger and she is constantly being honored by fans for her ability to stay young. She instructed people on how to keep in shape, and she swears by yoga just like Madonna does.
Amanda has spoken about her diet citing fish oil and vegetables as the basis of her healthy diet. However, she says she doesn’t deny herself what she tells Hello Magazine: “Life is too short to be fat-free, sugar-free, and alcohol-free. I don’t believe in anything semi-skimmed, I have full-fat yogurt, butter, and cheese. And I’m bragging.” On the weekends. I love wine.”
The ITV This Morning presenter is a longtime London resident. She owns a £3 million 6-bedroom home in Barnes, Richmond with her husband Dan Baldwin and 3 children.
Holly has been a TV presence since she was a teenager and has gone on to a successful career as the host of many of Britain’s most beloved talent and daytime shows. Despite decades on TV, Holly seems to have barely aged since her thirties, as the 41-year-old has impressed many with her seemingly timeless look.
Holly is reportedly keeping fit according to Celebrity Juice co-host Keith Lemon. Fans previously said they can’t believe the anchor is in her forties and insist she hasn’t changed much since her twenties.
The American may be primarily known for his performances in Hollywood, but the actor actually lives in Barnes in London with his British wife and Emily Blunt’s sister, Felicity. Stanley has starred in a number of blockbuster movies and cult favorites including The Devil Wears Prada where he has now met his wife.
Known for his cool sense of clothing and a chic physique, Stanley seemed to have aged gracefully well into his sixties that many didn’t even notice. The 61-year-old is still in great shape and in 2021 he was battling cancer which appears to have recovered.
In lockdown, the actor revealed that he used Pilates to stay in shape by following online instructions from a friend of his who teaches the exercise. Stanley is also an avid chef and has even released a cookbook of traditional Italian recipes that reflect his culinary heritage.
Emily Blunt is said to be the highest-paid actress in 2020, the same year she moved with fellow actor and husband John Krasinski, 41, across the pond from New York to Waltham Forest in north-east London. The 39-year-old has played every role in the book from Mary Poppins to the renegade action heroine of Edge of Tomorrow opposite Tom Cruise.
Emily seems to have avoided the aging process over the years with the actress looking nowhere near as if she’s on the cusp of 40. Like many other celebrities who seem to have magical anti-aging properties, Emily has ways of keeping her skin clear and her body looking flawless. the shape.
In a statement that won’t surprise anyone at this point, the A Quiet Place representative praised Pilates and yoga as a method for how she shapes it: “I really love doing Pilates, yoga and all the stretching…maybe like four, sometimes five times a week!”
Paul Rudd’s connection to London is interesting. It is not clear if he lived here personally, but he is a Londoner by blood. His parents come from the capital with his mother who hails from Surbiton while his father is from Edgware.
The New Jersey-born actor is officially the biggest meme in the “celebrities don’t age” chatter on the internet as people are convinced not only that the actor can’t age, but also that he has made some kind of diabolical pact to stay young forever.
The 53-year-old Ant-Man star has been dubbed the “real-life Benjamin Button” because over the course of his career spanning more than 3 decades, the actor hasn’t changed, with some fans arguing that she looks younger now than he did in his 20s. Last year, she was named the sexiest man in the world, a title the Anchorman actor has been pretty modest about.
So what is his secret? Paul received a boost from fellow Marvel actor Chris Evans, who asked, “Why don’t you get old? Do you drink children’s blood?” According to Hello, Paul said he uses sun cream when he goes in the sun as an explanation for his youthful appearance. All he seems to do is further confirm that he is some kind of ageless vampire.
