Almost 25 years have lapsed between Clueless and Ant-Man and the Wasp, and yet Paul Rudd looks exactly the same. Just this past weekend, he reunited with the cast of Clueless at C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) and a reporter asked the question we’ve all been wondering: “What’s your secret to looking so young?”
“I’m 80 years old on the inside,” the 49-year-old said before pointing to his chest and adding, “in here, pure darkness and a little moisturizer.”
His co-star Breckin Meyer (aka Travis) has another explanation. “People don’t know this, but on the set of Clueless they would come and they would get us like 20 minutes before set. On Paul’s trailer, they would knock like an hour beforehand because he had to finish sucking the lifeblood out of the babies to maintain,” he joked.
Even his Ant-Man co-stars have speculated on the topic. Michael Pena suggested that it’s “Botox, obviously good genes and Rogaine,” while Michael Douglas and director Peyton Reed attribute it to his sense of humor. “It’s just purity. And comedy. If all your time you’re thinking about, where do I get a joke? How do I bring humor to the world? I think that’s gonna make you younger,” explained Douglas.
In short, the secret to radiance is exactly what our grandmothers always told us: Laugh more and always moisturize.
