Some actors have been around for so long that they can't not be older. Everyone, for example, would guess Meryl Streep is in her 6 simply for the fact that she's been on screen as an adult since the '70s. It's only surprising when an actor who seemingly entered the public consciousness as an older person (see Larry David) is the same age as someone we'll always remember as young and virile (see Arnold Schwarzenegger.) This list of famous people who are the same age will surprise you with its mismatched pairings. (Mike Meyers & John Stamos?? No way!) Just like celebrities you didn't realize were BFFs, mismatched celebrities who are actually the same age might just shock you.
