12 Celebrities Who Were Hiding Their Real Age for Years



While some people are perfectly fine with discussing their age, for others, it’s a dreaded topic. In most cultures, asking one’s age is inappropriate once we become adults, so it comes as no surprise that fibbing about our age is one of the most common lies. People usually distort or embellish the truth in a way to make them younger, but in some cases, they’ll do the opposite. In the entertainment industry, age can be an especially sensitive topic.

When Mila Kunis first auditioned for the role of Jackie Burkhart in That ’70s Show, she was only 14 — not really old enough to land the role that would mark her career: “I told them I was a little bit older…I told them I was going to be 18, which is not technically a lie, cause at one point…I was going to be 18,” she confessed in a 2012 interview.

2. Sandra Bullock

Back in a 1992 interview, Bullock admitted that she was not completely honest about her age when auditioning for the role in the film, Love Potion No. 9. The studio was seeking to hire a 29-year-old actress to play the biologist, a somewhat mature character, like Diane Farrow. Since Bullock was around 27 or 28 at that time, she had to convince these filmmakers that she was the right choice for the role.
