Paul Rudd in Ant-Man

We Need To Talk About How Total Snack Paul Rudd Is 50 Years Old

It’s hard to believe that 2019 marks 24 years since Paul Rudd stole our hearts in Clueless, and we’ve all pretty much had a constant crush on him since. It’s even harder to believe that Paul Rudd recently turned 50.

Yes, Paul Rudd turned 50. This man with a six-pack and biceps turned 50:

We are SHOOK.

He still looks 30. He looks younger than my ex does, and that garbage boy was younger than me. People have been reeling from the realisation that this gorgeous man with an ageless face turned the big 5-0:

Did he sell his soul for eternal youth? No, he’s too nice. Is his skincare routine sent from the Gods? Very possible. Is it witchcraft? Most likely. There are a few theories floating around on Twitter.

Clearly, everyone is struggling to come to terms with the news, so we’ve taken a look back at some of our fave Paul Rudd movie roles to figure out exactly when he started his otherworldly skincare routine and/or made a deal with the devil:

#1. Clueless


Paul Rudd was 26 when he filmed Clueless. He looks like a normal 26-year-old mortal man here, albeit a lot hotter than any 26-year-old man I’ve met on Tinder.

Also, swoon. Swoooon. He’s been beautiful his entire life which really isn’t fair. If it was anyone other than Paul Rudd, one of the nicest and funniest people in Hollywood, we might be mad, but because it’s Paul MF Rudd we are ALL ON BOARD.

#2. Wet Hot American Summer

Fact: I thought this movie came out right after Clueless, mostly because he looks exactly the same.

Fact #2: he was 32 when he filmed Wet Hot American Summer.

What happened between 1995 and 2001? Is it just good genes? Or — and this is a much more reasonable explanation — did he cast a spell during this period to stop himself ageing?

#3. Role Models

He’s so gorgeous I want to punch him in the face.

#4. I Love You, Man


Honestly, he looks older here but still not 40 years old. Maybe he discovered a spell for immortality in an ancient tomb, or found a genie in a bottle?

#5. Ant-Man (2015)

This SNACK is a Marvel superhero at 50, and I’m more attracted to him than I am to Chris Evans.

We’ll probably never know exactly how Paul Rudd looks so damn good year after year, but maybe that’s okay. Maybe it’s enough just knowing that he’ll always look the same, even a hundred years in the future when he’s still out there making everyone thirsty.
