Adult Celebrities Who Still Look Like Kids

As we mark Selena Gomez's birthday, we look at stars in their 20s who still look far younger than their years

    Ariana Grande is one of the latest celebrities to make the leap from childhood acting to pop stardom. However, even with that big voice (and the go-go boots to match), she still reminds us of an adorable kid. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

    Having the youthful face of a teen helps when you star in a high school comedy. Glee’s Chris Colfer may have been in his 20s for the majority of Glee’s run, but looking so young is certainly paying off for him. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

    It’s possible that we still think of Ellen Page as the pregnant high schooler in the titular role of Juno, but it’s clear that she doesn’t age. It’s hard to believe she’s in her late 20s. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

  • 4 Harry Styles, 20

    Despite his growing reputation as a ladies’ man, One Direction’s Harry Styles still looks like the precocious boy bander we’ve known for years. He did manage to grab the attention of Taylor Swift (almost five years his senior), so perhaps there’s more to him than meets the eye. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

  • 5 Selena Gomez, 22

    The former Disney star turns 22 today but she can’t shake that baby face. She’s definitely tried tarting up her image — Spring Breakers, anyone? — but we won’t be able to accept her as “sexy” until she loses that baby face. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

  • 6 Justin Bieber, 20

    We can’t mention Selena Gomez without looking at her on-and-off boyfriend, Justin Bieber. The male pop star is putting lots of effort into proving that he’s an adult, with attempts at sexy songs and a growing rap sheet. Try as he might, he doesn’t quite have rugged, manly looks to match.

  • 7 Lucy Hale, 25

    Pretty Little Liars’ Lucy Hale was already in her 20s when the ABC Family series began airing. The producers obviously found the perfect actress, because the star has somehow retained an adolescent look throughout the show’s run. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

  • 8 Logan Lerman, 22

    Star of the Percy Jackson films, Logan Lerman has been trying to gain some critical street cred as of late. With roles in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower and Noah, the actor is seriously upping his acting game. But even as he broadens his range, his youthful face constantly reminds us of his childhood work. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

    Playing a vapid teenager on Modern Family brought fame to Sarah Hyland. Even though her character, Hayley Dunphy, is past her high school years, the actress could easily still pass for a freshman. [Photo Credit: Getty Images]

    Known for a string of acclaimed and provocative roles that seemed to take her well beyond her years, Dakota Fanning is one of the best young actresses out there. But will she actually look like an adult by the time she wins her first Oscar? [Photo Credit: Getty Images]
