List Rules Upvote the celebrities who have aged the best

Prepare to get jealous: some of the hottest celebrities of all time are still just as hot as they were the first time you saw them in a magazine or onscreen. In fact, some of them (George Clooney, I'm lookin' at you) have even gotten even better looking with age. These celebrities who have aged incredibly well aren't all fitness fanatics and easy livers; in fact, some of these celebrities who got hotter with age have actually been hard partiers in the past, only to come out looking better than they did in their heydays.

These famous people who aged well come from all walks of life: television, music, movies, and comedy. There are some young celebs who look the exact opposite of their famous cohorts -  child stars who grew up ugly, and some of these older celebs are still heartbreakers well into their AARP years. 

What celebrities have aged the best? What famous people are still as hot as they were when they were younger? What celebrities have looked the best the longest? This list of celebrities who aged well is a reminder that the hottest celebrities will always be hotter than you, even when they become eligible to collect social security.

There are also some famous faces on the list you may not have seen in their younger, slightly hotter times. For a refresher (or an introduction) on what these well aged celebs used to look like, check out pictures of actresses when they were young and hot old actors when they were young.
