When I saw these celebrities, I was pretty shocked. You will be VERY surprised that these celebrities that you thought were young and spritely are actually hitting the big 40 this very year. Not that that’s exactly OLD but still…
We will also give you a little sneak peek into how much they’ve changed since becoming famous if their age doesn’t make you feel old, THAT certainly will!
1.) Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney reaches the destination of 40 on the 18th April and I’m sure she’s grateful we’ve reminded you all about it! Kourtney became famous in 2007 thanks to her part in the show, you guessed it, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. After 15 seasons, three kids AND break-up, she’s now about to turn 40. After all that stress, she hasn’t even aged a day!
2.) Chris Pratt
Chris turns 40 on the 21st June. Chris really took off thanks to his role in Parks and Recreation in 2009. He’s now a Hollywood A-lister and we’re so proud of him! You may have seen him in Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers. He definitely has undergone a HUGE glow-up and he shouldn’t be afraid of 40, he looks better than ever!
Pink hits 40 on the 8th September. Pink was a 2000’s sensation on the pop music scene and broke through with her debut single “There You Go”. Pink has since released seven albums, sold 40 MILLION records AND won three Grammys. She’s killing it and I’m just grateful that she has changed her hair.

12.) James McAvoy
James hits 40 on the 21st April. James actually made his first movie debut all the way back in 1995! He looks WAY too young to be 40…since then he has starred in huge movies including X-Men and The Chronicles of Narnia.
13.) Busy Philipps
Busy turns 40 on the 25th June – these celebrities all have summer birthdays! Busy appeared on the acting scene in the 2000s after appearing on Freaks and Geeks and Dawson’s Creek. She still looks amazing and I wouldn’t think that she’s 40!
14.) Lamar Odom

Ne-Yo turns 40 on the 18th October. He has literally not aged A DAY throughout his entire career, he definitely is magic. He started his music career in 2000 but didn’t become a pop star in his own right until 2005. He has produced 25 hits and seven albums since.
20.) John Krasinski
John hits 40 on the 20th October. I’m sure you all know him as Jim Halpert from The Office and don’t we all just love him?! He also directed and starred in 2018’s most successful film, A Quiet Place. Quite the talented man!
I hope that this didn’t make you feel too old…it definitely made me feel old though! These celebrities have all brought us years of great music and entertainment so at least they can celebrate their 40th knowing that!
