Seth Rogen has made it clear that he's just as baffled as the rest of us about Ant-Man star Paul Rudd's apparent refusal to age.
Rudd turns 53 years old in a couple of months' time, and over the course of his career has starred in a number of beloved titles including Clueless, Friends, Parks and Recreation, Anchorman and Avengers: Endgame, to name but a few.
His credits list alone is enough to prove that he's been in the business a long time, but somehow the actor looks almost identical in his more recent titles as he did as a fresh-faced newbie.
Rudd's age-defying abilities have long been a source of amazement and confusion for fans, and Rogen recently joined the conversation during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, where he appeared to discuss the Disney+ series Pam & Tommy as well as his recent partnership with Rudd on a Super Bowl LVI advert.
Rogen, who at 39 years old is more than 10 years younger than Rudd, joked that he now looks older than the Marvel star, saying: 'It was a little alarming in some ways, honestly, because when I started working with Paul Rudd, he was older than I was... And now, I somehow passed him!'
He continued: 'You would assume I was his uncle between the two of us. You would assume I was watching him… I showed up on set and I was like, 'Damn, what happened? How did I pass you? Did they freeze you?' It was really upsetting in a lot of ways.'
Rudd and Rogen first met while working on the fan-favourite film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy in 2004, in which Rudd plays news reporter Brian Fantana and Rogen has a small role as a cameraman.
They have since starred together in a number of titles including the Anchorman sequel, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and This Is The End.
Though Rudd has successfully made it through so many projects without changing his looks, the actor told People that as a person, Rogen is the 'most unaffected' he has 'ever met'.
He commented: 'We always have fun together. Seth and I have worked together a bunch, and I will say, more than maybe any single person I've ever met, Seth is the most unaffected – has not changed in anyway. I mean, he's still the same dude, and working with him is a blast because there really is this kind of freedom. I'd say that was a big part of the fun of doing this.'
While we might not all be able to escape growing old, at least we can still take a leaf out of Rogen's book and stay true to ourselves throughout our lives. Not being Hollywood actors will probably help a lot of us with that venture.
