So today I was utterly shocked to read that Jennifer Hawkins is expecting her first child at 35.

35???

I have thought she was over 35 for the last ten years and that she was a late blooming model. Far out. 35?

Who has surprised you with their age?

Dexter Fletcher and 90210 original cast and lots of people I thought were younger than they were from the 1980's

I was actually surprised she is 35; I thought she was younger, but that's only because I didn't realise so many years had passed since her Miss Universe victory.

I've surprised a lot of people with my age - they've always thought that I'm younger. But I've recently lost some weight, and I've been told I now look older than before (thanks a lot, weirdly blunt friend lol).

I happened upon an episode of Masterchef this week, and one of the contestants, who I thought was in her 40s, was only in her 20s. That one was a surprise. There aren't many others who have surprised me, other than famous people who smoke - I find that smokers' faces tend to age more quickly.

This.  If I had to guess Jen Hawkins age I would have said 29-30.  No way would I have thought 35, she always seems so youthful.  (Not that 35 is old).

She won Miss Universe in 2004 she was 20 I think at the time. She may seem older because she’s been around for so long. It’s been 15 years. She’s 2 years older than me so not surprised by her age.

Leonardo Decaprio age sometimes catches off guard, for whatever reason I keep thinking he’s not 40 yet, but he’s 45 I think. Other then that it’s mostly actors or actresses that look 15 but are 25.

Leonardo DiCaprio looked 12 until he was about 35!

Julianne Moore is 58. She looks the same age as she did in Boogie Nights. The woman does not age!

I used to get mistaken for much younger, then I got fat and frowned too much. Good thing I have a stellar personality and ageism is bs.

The entire cast of Grease when I watched it as a child.

Watching it as an adult ‘how did I ever think these people were teens’?

Pauley Perrett, Abby from NCIS is 50!!

I only found that out this week, and I was so shocked. To me her character was a mid to late 20 something, and I thought that she was playing someone her real age!

She either has great skin or awesome makeup artists on that show.

The other one, Ellen DeGeneres, who’s just over 60! I mean, wow! Her mum must also be getting on, but looks not much older really!

Nigella - I’m to lazy to confirm her age but I think master chef said she was almost 60!

A lot of young people from the 80s are heading towards 60 which is a bit freaky . I went to a Bryan Adams concert earlier this year and he has hit the big 60 .

The rat pack and the like are all heading for 60 .

I remember being about 10 years old and holidaying with my Granny and Granda who were in their early 60s and they seemed incredibly old so it freaks me out that these people who were on the cover of smash hits in the 80s are now 60+!
It’s confusing on how we perceive things ..

Sonia Kruger. She’s nearly 54. She looks a lot younger IMO.

I'd like to see these women without Botox, fillers and lifts.

Anyone can look young with the right plastic surgeon. Cher...73 except she doesn't look like Cher anymore.

I read today Kacey Chambers is only 42, younger than me but looks easily 10 years older!

Made me feel better lol, but I can't sing, let alone perform in front of thousands.

Yes, the beautiful Nigella is either 58 or 59.

I choose to believe that Nigella is proof that a great love of chocolate, liquorice and cake keeps you youthful.

I think she clearly looks like someone older trying very hard to look younger when you see her in photos.

I think her mannerisms and pattern of speech "play younger" when I see her on the odd TV ad.

And Nigella and the Queen - both living proof of the benefit of living in a sun-deprived country! Or the benefits of good food and a daily gin...

I love Cher, shame so many do use the fillers. It was wonderful watching Dead to me on Netflix, Christina Applegate had had no fillers etc and clearly looks 48, but so much better than ones who have had work done!

Megan Mullally is ageless.

Last week someone told me I looked 20. (I'm 10 years older). But the person in question was 7, so I'm not sure if that counts :laugh:

She has a few wigs with grey/silver either solid or streaks through them.

I do love her wigs though
