In the year 2000, Marvel Studios chose Hugh Jackman to play Wolverine, the most memorable X-Man in the Marvel Studio Films. More than a couple of decades have passed since but you won’t see a smidge of that time looking at Jackman.
His intense workout to gain the superhero physique includes a daily session that usually lasts an hour or more. This Australian native was named People Magazine’s sexiest man alive in 2008, and it looks like the title still holds true even after all these years in the biz. We’d like to think that he has some great genes on his side too, since he doesn’t look a day older than 50.
Tobey Maguire - Born June 27th, 1975
He played 18-year-old Spider-Man when he was just 27 in 2002 but if you look at Tobey Maguire’s photo today, he looks the same as those years, despite the movie having been filmed 21 years ago. His appearance in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” showed a still young-looking retired Spidey.
He hasn’t said much about how he stays young, but he did talk about making “No Way Home.” He said, “I was just grateful every day. Really, it was such a rich experience.” All three Spidey actors said it was like sharing a brotherhood with rich and emotional memories. Naw, too cute!
Naomi Campbell - Born May 22nd, 1970
British supermodel Naomi Campbell took off as an international sensation at just 15 years old. She started out really young, at 7, she performed for Bob Marley’s “Is This Love” 1978 music video. How does she stay so beautiful? First of all, she was born amazingly pretty, however, she has let some of us in on a couple of secrets.
Talking to “Hola!” magazine, Campbell credits her mother for teaching her to moisturize her skin. In a “Vogue” video, Campbell shares her skincare routine. She says she uses a micro-needling device that promotes collagen by running small needles over the face.
Busy Philipps - Born June 25th, 1979
“Freaks and Geeks” star Busy Philipps keeps fit by working out in the morning each day. She told “Well + Good” that her main motivation is keeping herself grounded in this stressful day and age. She feels that sweating every single day is important and "It makes me feel like a human being.
I’m able to be a better parent and a better friend, and it calms me down." With “Shape” magazine, Philipps shared that she is into the LEKFit, a mini trampoline workout. She said it’s really fun and she’s only fallen off once and that it’s just young dumb fun.
Ralph Macchio - Born November 4th, 1961
He’s the Karate Kid. Is that why Ralph Macchio looks young? He told “People” magazine, “A healthy lifestyle doesn’t hurt but I think I’ve just gotten lucky in the genes department.” He pointed out his parents look young for their age and added that he too has youthful energy for some reason.”
As an actor, his young looks enabled him to play significantly younger roles. At 26, making “Karate Kid Part III,” his love interest was only 15. Production had to change the script to make it seem more platonic, otherwise, there may have been a lot of backlash with an 11-year age gap.
