I will have to admit, Halle Berry inspired this feature.
Hellooo, have you seen that woman? She clocked 50 aka five decades aka she was born before the Nigerian Civil war, aka she was born before Fela became a star aka she was born before Nollywood came along, in August and she looked nothing like it.
That is an inspiration to write a feature like this if you ask me.
Anyway, without wasting time or stretching words, let’s dig in.
Here’s a list of 15 movie stars who look absolutely nothing like their age…
Halle Berry (50)
This woman begins the list because of obvious reasons. She’s fifty.
She was born before the civil war in Nigeria, before Fela got his big break in music and before there was Tuface.
And she still looks like this.
Yeah, let that sink in.
Aja Naomi King (31)
The How To Get Away With Murder star might play a Law Student every Thursday on ABC. However, the Actress is 31 and looks nothing like it!
Looks like Murder isn’t the only thing this brown beauty can get away with. Clearly, she can get away with not ageing a day above 21!
OC Ukeje (35)
You may or may not know that he is above 30. However, seems like we will need to set up an Arbitration to understand how this fine man does not look anything close to mid 30s.
Genevieve Nnaji (37)
Ms Nnaji is everyone’s favorite Nollywood Star. Clearly, it is not only because she is so effortlessly beautiful, it is also because she does not look 37!
I think I am going to need one of those things she’s having. If she’s having anything…
Adesua Etomi (30+)
Still wondering how you can be over 30 and look like AMVCA winning Actress, Adesua Etomi.
Clearly, Vampires abound within us.
Jim Iyke (40)
Jim Iyke had me shocked when he turned 40.
I mean, he has been on our TV screens forever. But who would have thought he was 40 years old! Who?
Don’t care what you say but this one looks extremely good for 40!
Ebube Nwagbo (33)
Who knew she was a day over 30?
And now, 33? We need to start packaging that Nigerian blood.
Someone outside this Country gotta be interested in this good genes we’ve got!
At the end of the day, there’s something called Brazilian butt. So Nigerian blood is definitely not far-fetched.
Gabrielle Union (43)
See, I am still trying to figure out how Ms Union manages to look 25 at 43.
There has to be some jazz involved. And that jazz is damn good, I must admit.
Tika Sumpter (36)
There was no way you could have known this Sparkles and Haves and Haves Not Actress is 36 years old!
I mean, 4 years away from 40? Permit me to say, she ‘haves’ that vampire blood and ‘haves not’ know how to age.
Rita Dominic (41)
Ladies and Gentlemen, resident vampire of Nollywood.
This gorgeous woman is in her 40s and she absolutely looks nothing like it.
I’m voting her for President come 2019. #ImWithHer
Oh yeah, I did that.
