Do You Know Which of These Well-Known People Is Older?
by Kennita Leon

Beauty comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes - and ages. Some people look good their whole lives, while others can maintain a dewy glow simply by avoiding tanning, drinking, and smoking. Some people, however, use other methods, such as plastic surgery, liposuction, fancy trainers, or chefs. Many of the latter group are celebrities who look ten years younger (or more!). True, some have been blessed with genes that keep that youthful glow, but others may have had a little help from creams, injections, hair extensions, teeth whiteners and other devices that can keep us looking youthful. That means you can't ever be really sure about a person's age unless you've seen their birth certificate.

When you think of celebrity couples, like Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, you might be surprised to know that Gwen is partnered up with a younger man. When you stop and think about how long Adele and Miley Cyrus have been in the public eye, you'll realize these two singers and songwriters aren't that far apart in ages. If you know your rappers, you'll recall that rapper and businessman Jay-Z is older than Kanye West by eight years. If you're a red carpet fan, you know that Angela Bassett and Viola Davis both simply glow on camera, but actually, Bassett is seven years older than Viola Davis!
