Whoa! Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Hyland Are the Same Age (and 9 Other Celeb Duos That Will Surprise You)
Wait a second… Did you know Oscar Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland are the same age? It is incredibly easy to misjudge a celebrity’s age, especially when an actress plays a role that is vastly different than her actual age—and you’ve watched her grow up on-screen. Here, ten celebrity duos who are shockingly the same age.
Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Hyland: 26
Hyland plays Haley Dunphy, a clueless, hormonal young adult, on Modern Family, which is probably why she doesn’t seem to be quite as old as Oscar Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence. Either way, both women still have a long way to go before they outgrow their baby faces for more mature roles.
Anna Kendrick and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: 31
Just because the Olsen twins have been around for decades doesn’t mean they’re middle-aged. In fact, the Full House stars are right there with Kendrick, the fresh-faced college kid in Pitch Perfect. (At least Kendrick owns up to her size in her memoir, Scrappy Little Nobody.)
Beyoncé and Britney Spears: 35
Did you know Beyoncé and Britney Spears were both born in 1981? Too bad Beyoncé wasn't a member of The Mickey Mouse Club like Spears...now that is a riff-off we'd love to see.
Tom Cruise and Steve Carell: 54
Fun fact: There's only one month separating the comedian's and the action hero's birthday. Go figure.
Uzo Aduba and Jessica Alba: 36
OK, there’s no denying Alba could pass as a freshman in college. But we frankly had no idea where “Crazy Eyes” fell on the spectrum. Mystery works, people.
Kate Winslet and Charlize Theron: 41
It’s easy to remember Winslet as Titanic’s Rose Dawson, but the Insurgent star isn’t actually a 1912 socialite. In fact, she is the same age as the Mad Max: Fury Road badass.
Ryan Gosling and Macaulay Culkin: 36
When Culkin was slapping his cheeks in Home Alone, Gosling was prepping his ballad-belting for The Mickey Mouse Club. And look at them...now?
Emilia Clarke and Lindsay Lohan: 30
There’s Lohan, who we all know has seen her fair share of life. And then there’s Clarke, a relative newbie in our pop-culture frame of reference. However, both ladies lay claim to 1986.
Brad Pitt and Nicolas Cage: 53
Well, 1963 was an eventful year. We had Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, the JFK assassination and the birth of two Hollywood age-mates, Pitt and Cage.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Anna Faris: 40
Vampire slayer and the goofball. Either way, we’ll have what they’re having.
