We Can’t Believe These Celebrities Are the Same Age

We’re about to blow everyone’s minds with the fact these celebrities share the same age! If you’re like us, you’ve likely never put much thought into the topic, but after reading this list you’ll be wondering why you never considered it before (like us). We guarantee some of these comparisons will blow your mind!

Queen Elizabeth II and Marilyn Monroe

We’re starting off with a pairing that absolutely blew our minds! Queen Elizabeth II recently celebrated her 96th birthday, and this year is celebrating her Platinum Jubilee. While it might seem improbable, as Marilyn Monroe is forever seen as the fountain of youth due to her untimely death in 1962, the pair were actually born in the same year!

Eugene Levy and Dolly Parton

Even if you don’t know Eugene Levy’s name, you’ll immediately recognize him in every movie (it’s the eyebrows and signature glasses). Levy was born in 1946, making him a young 75 years old. You know who else was also born that year: Dolly Parton! This national treasure celebrated her 76th birthday in January, but doesn’t look a day over 55!

Cher and Sally Field

Do you believe in life after love? How about the fact that Cher and actress Sally Field are the same age? It’s true! While it might be hard to believe, given how gracefully both of them have aged, they’ve each been in tinsel town for around 60 years, making them two of the last remaining Vintage Hollywood legends!

Nicolas Cage and Keanu Reeves

Let us present two actors who, in recent years, have become massively popular due to their cult followings. Each had an expansive Hollywood catalogue prior to this, but it seems that only recently people have begun to appreciate their acting genius! While it might be hard to believe, both Nicolas Cage and Keanu Reeves were born in 1964. Reeves was just born later in the year!

Jane Fonda and Morgan Freeman

The world won’t know what to do with itself when Morgan Freeman dies – and, no, it’s not morbid for us to think of that, as the actor is 84 years old. He was born in 1937, along with an actress who many have very polarizing opinions about: Jane Fonda. No matter how hard she tries to separate herself from it, many will always remember her for her infamous “Hanoi Jane” photo.

Elizabeth Taylor and Johnny Cash

While Elizabeth Taylor and Johnny Cash are no longer with us, it wasn’t until recently that we realized both were born in the same year: 1932. Not only that, they were born within one day of each other! Maybe it was Cash’s rugged looks or the fact Taylor always looked effortlessly glamorous, but we always thought she was years younger than him.

Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury

How was 1925 nearly 100 years ago?! It seems like only yesterday Dick Van Dyke was starring in the 1964 film Mary Poppins and Angela Lansbury in 1962’s The Manchurian Candidate. In fact, we can hardly remember a time when these two weren’t gracing movie theaters and television screens. Both are currently 96 years old, having been born in the later months of 1925.

Sophia Loren and Dame Judi Dench

Sophia Loren was named one of the American Film Institute’s (AFI) greatest female actresses of Classic Hollywood, and we would argue that Dame Judi Dench should be given the same title for her work in theater. Did you know the pair are the same age? It’s true! Both were born in the latter part of 1934, making them 84 years old.

Michael J. Fox and George Glooney

Did you know Michael J. Fox – AKA Alex Keaton from Family Ties – and George Clooney are the same age? It was hard for us to believe, too, which is why we had to triple check their birthdays before including them on this list! While we’re sad Fox retired from acting in 2020 due to health issues, we respect his decision.

Liza Minnelli and Diane Keaton

Liza Minnelli, daughter of famed Vintage Hollywood actress Judy Garland, is an iconic star in her own right, having appeared in such film classics as Cabaret (1972) and New York, New York (1977). She was born in 1946, along with another iconic actress, Diane Keaton! Both are known for their impeccable style and engaging personalities, along with their talent on the big screen!

Bob Newhart and Audrey Hepburn

We’re closing off this list with two of Vintage Hollywood’s most famous names: Bob Newhart and Audrey Hepburn! While Hepburn sadly died of cancer in 1993, Newhart is still alive and currently a thriving 92-year-old. While it might be hard to believe, both icons were born in 1929, meaning if she were still alive, Hepburn would be the same age as the television icon!
