It's no secret that actors are often booked to play characters of much younger ages. Kerr Smith was 26 when he played 16 year old Jack McPhee on Dawson's Creek.

His incredibly youthful appearance (which has since become a full head of gray hair by 40) worked in his favor. Other celebrities have ridden a similar wave of good fortune. 

Playing younger roles on camera certainly helps keep them younger in our minds, but for many stars, the truth is they really look like they're only as old as their characters.

Have they found the fountain of youth? Are they just the product of a slow-aging gene pool? Maybe they're just secret friends with Dr. Botox and his friend The Scalpel?

Who knows! But here are 19 stars who are older than they look:

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is 45! Contrary to reports, she is not becoming a mom in her mid-40s. Probably.

We know. We don't believe it either. Especially not #5.

In fact, to further test that fountain of youth theory, here are nine pairs of stars who are the same age, but you'd never know it by looking at them ...

If one thing's for sure after looking through this slideshow it's that Joan Rivers' plastic surgeon needs to start handing out his business card on the red carpet. 

Or we could just let people age like they're supposed to so they don't end up looking like Joan Rivers one day. Yeah, there's that option.

Here, so you can see and believe, are 18 stars who are the same age. You can Google if you want, but you might be too busy picking your jaw up off the floor to do that.

Kate Upton and Selena Gomez
Starting life as a Disney star might have done Selena Gomez good. She and Kate Upton are both 21 but one looks far older than the other.

From booze, to drugs, to just plain ol' genetics, everybody ages. Even Hollywood's rich and famous and attention-seeking reality TV stars.

Some just do it better than others.

And Hollywood's women do it better than the men, even counting Joan Rivers among the lot.

Rob Lowe sat down with Oprah recently, and for some reason the topic of Justin Bieber came up. Rob remarked that even Justin's fans don't "give a sh!t about his music," which may sound like an awesome instance of Bieber-bashing, but it turns out Lowe was actually defending the bratty pop star.

  • Justin Bieber: Praying?

"I have tremendous empathy," said the actor and former teen idol when asked about Justin. "He makes really good music, but he knows the dark secret is 80% of his audience doesn't give a sh!t about his music. And he knows it. It bums him out."

He makes really good music?! Clearly, the real story here is that after 24 years of sobriety, Rob Lowe has fallen off the wagon hard.

I kid, but in all seriousness, Rob's comments reflect a disturbing new trend in discussions about Justin: some celebs are actually sympathizing with the spoiled twerp. 

Rob, no one cares about the music because Justin doesn't even care about the music. The only time the "pop star" makes headlines is when he gets a new tattoo or engages in some other form of BS wannabe thug behavior.

Parks & Recreation star Rob Lowe will portray a lawyer in the upcoming TV movie about last summer's Casey Anthony trial, according to reports.

Lowe, who previously played Drew Peterson in the Lifetime original film Drew Peterson: Untouchable has been cast as prosecutor Jeff Ashton.

The movie, tentatively titled Prosecuting Casey Anthony, will be based on Ashton's book about the case, Improper Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

In a case that captivated the country, Anthony, 26, was charged with and later acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee in 2008.

The not guilty verdict set off a firestorm of criticism (and head-scratching, or just plain outrage) across the U.S. Anthony has been in hiding since.

She hasn't won over many since last summer. In fact, the family that hid her after the verdict recently left this scathing voicemail for Casey Anthony.

"We're thrilled to have Rob returning to our network, after his amazing star turn as Drew Peterson," Lifetime executive V.P. Rob Sharenow said.

"He's one of those rare stars who can do it all: comedy, drama, heroes, villains."

Parks and Recreation star Rob Lowe turned the football world upside down late yesterday with a series of tweets regarding Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

Lowe stated, matter-of-factly, his shock that Peyton Manning is retiring.

Quickly questioned about it, he then said his "people are saying" the injured, aging NFL legend is hanging up the cleats, but did not exactly change course.

Ludicrous on the surface, the fact that Lowe is friends Colts owner Jim Irsay gave the situation a little more credibility. A little. Barely more than none.

Rob Lowe, Peyton Manning

Manning’s father and agent quickly denied the rumor, and Irsay has fired a shot at Lowe via Twitter. In response to Lowe's "scoop," the owner wrote:

“My sources tell me Rob will star in an epic remake of Deep Throat with aging porn stars and 4 finger circus clowns!”

It's unclear if Irsay was taking a swipe at Lowe’s infamous sex tape, or just trying to come up with a BS Twitter report of his own that’s odder than Lowe’s to make a point.

Either way, this whole thing is hilariously weird.

Lowe later told Rich Eisen of NFL Network that the info came from a “pretty darn good source.” Lowe said the source wasn’t Irsay, however, or anyone close to him.

The fact that Manning didn’t retire doesn’t mean he won’t, but it's doubtful Rob Lowe broke the sports scoop of the year, though stranger things have happened.

We can't think of one, but we assume they have.

Regis Philbin's replacement on ABC could be Rob Lowe, reports say.

Lowe just finished a two-day stint guest hosting with Kelly Ripa and an ABC source says the top network brass "loved the chemistry between them."

Network executives have spoken with Lowe's reps about making it a permanent gig, but Lowe, who stars on Parks and Recreation, is non-committal.

There's a big surprise. One of the more itinerant actors around, Lowe has departed in the middle of numerous programs' runs in pursuit of other projects.

Rob was just asked by TMZ whether he's moving to New York.

He said: "We were just talking about that. I love New York. I love the energy. It would be a change of pace. I'm a California boy, but it could be fun."

Thoughts? Rob Lowe replacing Regis Philbin ...

Rob Lowe has settled a lawsuit brought on by his former nanny.

Jessica Gibson had sued the Brothers & Sisters star and his wife, accusing them of sexual harassment, among other offenses, in April 2008.

This course of action took place a week after the Lowes sued Gibson for allegedly breaching the confidentiality clause she signed when she went to work for the couple; they claimed she conspired to demand $1.5 million in exchange for keeping quiet about various pieces of dirty laundry.

In the end, neither party's attorneys revealed whether money was involved in the settlement, making the ending to this case as anticlimactic as Lowe's ending scene on The West Wing.

You though the Rob Lowe vs. Laura Boyce feud was over, didn't you?

Far from it.

In response to claims against Lowe and wife Sheryl that they sexuallu harassed their former nanny, the actor filed sworn statements in a Los Angeles Superior Court from people who knew and worked with Boyce. They said she didn't like black people.

"Laura would use the 'n-word' a lot when referring to her African-American friends and lovers," Boyce's former friend Noa Shaw said in her statement. "Laura was very open with her use of the 'n-word' in public."

Moreover, the president of Lowe's production company, Jennifer Dynof, said she had reprimanded Boyce "about her use of the ("n" word) around the children and the Lowe's friends."

Gloria Allred, the attorney for Laura Boyce, made it clear, this issue was far from over: "We will be filing our reply to (Lowe's allegations) within five days and it will contain our response."

Both Rob Lowe and Jessica Gibson had important parts of their cases thrown out in court - and if you ask their attorneys, they both won.

The judge threw out Jessica's retaliation claim, but the judge also tossed out four Lowe claims - one being an allegation of defamation.

Jessica Gibson's attorney, Gloria Allred, said in a statement:

"He lost the heart of his case, which is defamation, and we are permitted to proceed with the heart of our case, which was and still is our allegation that Rob Lowe sexually harassed Jessica Gibson."

Lowe's attorney, Larry Stein, told celebrity news site TMZ:

"We are delighted with the court's ruling today. It removed the retaliation claim, which Ms. Allred had been focusing on and left in six claims, which allows us to prosecute every claim we've made."

Well, that settles that. Only not at all. She still says he spanked it in front of her, he says she skanked it in front of everyone, etc.

Former nanny Jessica Gibson is suing Rob Lowe and his wife.
