Paul Rudd turned 50 on Saturday, April 6, and fans took to Twitter to share their shock and awe at learning the Marvel star’s age.
Ant-Man executive producer Edgar Wright shared a photo on Twitter showing him with the Anchorman alum and wrote, “Happy 50th to the ever charming, ever boyish Paul Rudd. Fifty is incidentally the number of virgins whose blood he baths in per annum.”
“the thing abt paul rudd isnt exactly that he looks super young but rather he always looked the SAME age, long before AND after he reached it he looks eternally 35, which is a really solid age to be stuck at imo,” one fan wrote.
“Paul Rudd looks better at 50 than you all did at 25. BTW, he looked better than you at 25 than you did at 25,” another tweeted.
“i’m pretty sure Paul Rudd is secretly immortal,” another suggested.
“I was today years old when I found out Paul Rudd was actually 50 and not in his 30s. What kind of f–kery is this?” another fan tweeted.
“I could play Paul Rudd’s older brother,” former child star Devon Sawa wrote. “I’m 40.”
“Why isn’t medical science studying Paul Rudd for clues into the aging process?” PBS News Hour executive producer Sara Just asked. “Why hasn’t his dermatologist been hauled before Congress for an explanation?”
Rudd acknowledged the speculation about his ageless appearance during a reunion with his Clueless costars Alicia Silverstone, Donald Faison and Breckin Meyer at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo on March 23.
“I’m 80 years old on the inside,” he told fans. “It’s a mess underneath all this.”
Pointing to his head and heart, Rudd, who played teen heartthrob Josh Lucas in the 1995 rom-com, added, “in here, it’s pure darkness … with a little moisturizer.”
“On the set of Clueless they would come and they would get us like 20 minutes before set, and then on Paul’s trailer they would knock like an hour beforehand because he has to finish sucking the lifeblood out of the babies he takes in order to maintain, and then he was camera-ready,” Meyer joked.
“Hey, it’s a tough business,” Rudd responded.
