I’m going to say it, people. 70 is the new 50, and most of these celebrities don’t look 70 at all. I guess that’s what happens when you’re living in Hollywood and you can afford all of the best beauty treatments that Los Angeles has to offer.
These celebs have definitely aged gracefully, well, most of them have anyway. Keep reading to find out which of your favorite celebrities are a little bit older than you thought. Are you feeling old yet?
Can you believe that Meryl Streep is going to be 70 years old? Her face just seems so timeless to me. Meryl will turn 70 on June 22, 2019. She’s been a working actress since 1969, and has been nominated for more Academy Awards than anyone in history.
She’s won three Oscars so far, one for Kramer vs. Kramer, one for Sophie’s Choice, and one for The Iron Lady. There are probably a few more Academy Award nominations in her future.
Some part of me feels like Richard Gere has always been 70 years old. I just feel like he always had that silver fox thing going on. Did you know that Richard Gere’s middle name is Tiffany? Well, you know now.
Like Streep, Gere has also been a professional actor since 1969. He’s won a Golden Globe award and a Screen Actors Guild award. He’s been pretty outspoken about his liberal politics, and he was even banned from being a presenter at the Academy Awards for denouncing the Chinese government while announcing the nominees in 1993.
Even though The Boss is turning 70 on September 23rd, 2019, he’ll always be a rebellious teenager at heart. Bruce Springsteen is New Jersey’s greatest export. Not only is he a fantastic singer and songwriter, but he’s also a family man.
Bruce married his bandmate Patti Scialfa in 1991. They have three children together, Evan James Springsteen, Jessica Rae Springsteen, and Sam Ryan Springsteen. His daughter Jessica is actually a show jumping champion rider.
