Many of these surprisingly young male celebs have been in the spotlight for so long that it’s hard to believe their actual age. These athletes, singers, and actors are likely way younger than you thought, whether because of their public personas or their mature work.
Sam Smith sings with such emotion and soul that you'd think he was decades older. Daniel Radcliffe has been in the international limelight for years, but he’s still a young man. Josh Hutcherson and Harry Styles also number among celebrity men who are younger than you think, thanks to their appearances in gritty dramas like The Hunger Games and Dunkirk.
These youthful male stars seem like they may never age. Perhaps one day they will share their secrets; until then, we can all continue to be awed by their agelessness.
Sam Smith's mature-sounding, soulful voice and deep emotional lyrics seem to defy his young age. The British artist, who was born in May 1992, took home four Grammy Awards for his debut album In the Lonely Hour in 2014. The album's ubiquitous single, "Stay With Me," was inspired by a one-night stand.
Hip hop artist Chance the Rapper, who was born on April 16, 1993, is a risk taker with incredible business savvy. He decided that he wanted to remain an independent artist, so he did not sign with any of the major record labels that were actively courting him. His determination was rewarded with three Grammy Awards and incredible mainstream success. The Chicago native is already giving back to his community; he made a $2 million donation to Chicago public schools in 2017.
Profession: Rapper, Singer-songwriter
Born on February 1, 1994, Harry Styles catapulted into the spotlight when his boy band One Direction took shape on the reality TV show The X Factor in the 2010s. One Direction achieved tremendous international commercial success, but all good things must come to an end. Styles embarked on a successful solo career in 2016, and made his big screen acting debut in Christopher Nolan's 2017 WWII epic Dunkirk.
