Kanye West stays young by staying cool. Last year he officially changed his name to “Ye.” (First Facebook goes Meta, and now this.) This keeps him young because it’s a sort of adolescent thing to do. The rapper who is worth about a billion bucks likes the name Ye because it means “you” and it is the most common word in the Bible. (That’s what he said on a radio show anyway.)
Plus, he pulls in a younger audience. And he’s making cool clothes for the kids with his upcoming clothing line collaboration, “Yeezy Gap.” Staying young comes from within. Haven’t we heard that before?
Ewan McGregor - Born March 31st, 1971
Scottish actor Ewan McGregor wins a lot of American acting awards. But he’s also been honored in the U.K. with an OBE and the Britannia Humanitarian Award BAFTA for all his work towards and with UNICEF. He’s known for portraying Obi-Wan Kenobi in the “Star Wars” prequels.
To stay in shape, McGregor prefers outdoor exercise to the gym. Usually, he runs five to eight miles, bikes, hikes, or snow skis. He eats nutritiously. The actor stopped drinking in 2000, which helps preserve his youthful demeanor. He is way past his 50th year around the sun, but thanks to great skin, you would never know.
Julianne Moore - Born December 3rd, 1960
Julianne Moore has decades in show business, but it doesn’t show. Never mind the fact she is already well into her 60s. She thinks that age is a state of mind and wishes Hollywood would be kinder to women over 30. As for her, the Oscar-winning actress is much more than 30 and aging gracefully. But she questions the term.
“There’s so much judgment in the term ‘aging gracefully.’ Is there an ungraceful way to age?” Moore asks rhetorically. She added that no one has an option about aging, so it’s not a positive or a negative thing. And we couldn’t agree more with the star.
Candy Lo - Born October 18th, 1974
Miss Asia pageant winner from 1991 and former Chinese model from Hong Kong, Candy Lo is age-defying. She was 17 when she won the pageant and does seem to have aged much over the years. It’s tough to think that this star has already aged well into her 40s.
She quit modeling to raise her three sons, but she took a break from domestic life to publish “Timeless,” a picture book with many beautiful photos of this seemingly ageless woman. She was 45 when she published the book, and it is heartwarming to know that charities benefit from some of the proceeds.
Elijah Wood - Born January 28th, 1981
People freak out over Elijah Wood’s boyish looks. And it’s no shocker here since he looks the same after all these years in the spotlight. Once, Conan O’Brien had him on the show and demanded to know his secret. He found out the actor, who is forever engrained in his imagination as Frodo, was much older than he thought.
Wood explained that he has always looked young, but he did not have an answer to why he never ages. He said it’s probably genetic. It must be those big blue eyes that make it seem like aging does not apply to him.
