Kids these days — they refuse to grow up! Which brings us to this list of 30 celebrities who are somehow, mysteriously, for reasons that literally don’t make sense, under 21. And the best part is that most of them have accomplished more in less than 21 years than the rest of us have in, way, way longer. It’s fine! I’m not bitter.
This is Posh Spice’s son Brooklyn Beckham standing in front of a large blow-up poster of Chloë Grace Moretz’s lips. Those of you who were deeply attached to their relationship and still aren’t over their breakup are probably feeling triggered right now, so apologies in advance. Also, wild how he’s a teenager still, huh?
Considering that Modern Family has been on for about 10,000 years and I have personally aged about two decades while watching it, it’s shocking that Ariel Winter is still under the age of 21.
Someone explain to me how KJ Apa was only 17 when he started out on Riverdale, is only 20 right now, and manages to look like he’s been working since back in ye olden days when the CW was still going by the WB.
Considering they’re literal teenagers, Chloe and Halle Bailey have accomplished so much. Like, way more than I will ever accomplish in my life — including a music career, a TV show (watch Grown-ish on Freeform), and a friendship with Beyoncé.
The fact that Bella Thorne is not 21 yet spent summer 2017 hooking up with Scott Disick, a man who is 34, will never cease to amaze. Also amazing? Her acting abilities! Please be advised that Bella’s new movie Assassination Nation killed it at Sundance.
Speaking of Grown-ish, Yara Shahidi certainly has a lot to be proud of at just 18. Not only is she the star of her own TV show, she’s become one of the most outspoken and socially active voices of her generation.
While the rest of the Stranger Things teens are 21 or older, the show’s resident normcore hero Shannon Purser is still unable to legally drink. Strange indeed.
Hello, are you genuinely shook to your very core that Shawn Mendes is a teenager? Same! But clearly he likes older women because his kinda-maybe-sorta girlfriend is Hailey Baldwin, who’s 21. (Which, to be clear, is not old at all — but is definitely older than 19.)
You might be ~surprised~ to find out that Elle Fanning is still just 20 considering the length of her career. She’s been working since 2001’s I Am Sam, and has basically walked a million miles of red carpet.
Things Jordyn Woods has accomplished in the last 20 years: A succesful modeling career, becoming an influencer, a casual fashion collection.
Things I’ve accomplished in the last 20 years: Wearing pants out of the house instead of leggings.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch star Kiernan Shipka is a bona fide veteran of Hollywood thanks to her role as Sally Draper on Mad Men, yet she’s somehow still only 18. How? It’s all very confusing.
Okay, fine, so maybe the name is a slight giveaway that Lil Pump (aka Gazzy Garcia) is not, in fact, super old. But 17? Guys, he was in middle school just four years ago!
Were you as mature, introspective, cool, Gandalf-level wise, and stylish as Willow Smith at the age of 17? Because I was over here debating which Pink by Victoria’s Secret shirt to wear.
Remember Renesmee from Twilight? This is what she looks like now. Feel old yet? Cool, same, glad we can all agree on something.
This is Kylie Jenner. She has a beauty empire, a clothing line, a reality TV series, a bajillion endorsements, tons of money, and — oh, right — a baby. She is 20.
Time for a fleet of Hunger Games stars, who are somehow still under 21 despite those movies coming out forever ago. What is time, even? Who knows! Anyway, this is Amandla Stenberg, who played Rue in THG and last year starred in Everything, Everything.
Meanwhile, here’s Willow Shields, who played Katniss’s little sister Primrose. She’s set to star in A Fall from Grace, which has Oscar bait written all over it thanks to a cast including Vincent D’Onofrio, Tim Roth, Forest Whitaker, and David Lynch.
Quick question: How many Olympic medals had you won by the time you were 17? Because Laurie Hernandez took home the gold during the 2016 Olympics — not to mention the Mirror Ball Trophy on Dancing with the Stars!
Johnny Depp’s daughter is already a successful model at just 18 — and happens to be a face of Chanel. Casual! (FYI, she also has a burgeoning film career, and is set to appear in Kevin Smith’s upcoming horror comedy Moose Jaws.)
Khalid’s first single “Location” went quadruple platinum and another one of his songs was featured on the Black Panther soundtrack. Both totally average things for a 20-year-old man to have accomplished.
Rowan skyrocketed to fame thanks to playing Riley Matthews on Girl Meets World, then flawlessly made the transition from Disney star to Fashion Week staple and feminist activist. Pretty cool for 16, and on a totally unrelated note, I need to find out what eye shadow she’s wearing in this picture.
Okay, again the “Lil” in his name kinda gives away the fact that he’s, well, lil. As does the fact that his mixtape was named Lil Boat. And his debut album was named Teenage Emotions. But still, kinda shocking to find out Lil Yachty is very much living up to his name at just 20.
Another day, another Girl Meets World alum. Sabrina might be a little older than Rowan Blanchard, but she’s still young AF for someone with such a solid career. Not only was she on a TV series (cool, same), she already has two studio albums (cool, also same).
Daya starred as herself in School of Rock, has been releasing music since ye olden days of 2015, and basically is putting all other teenagers to shame by having the work ethic of a 30-year-old.
On the one hand, you think of Jaden Smith and are probably like “Will Smith’s adorable son from The Pursuit of Happyness! Love him!” On the other, you’re probably like “worldy sage who talks like he’s a wizened old man.” So yes, it’s hard to guess his age, but fun fact: He’s 19.
Remember when Maude Apatow was a little kid in Knocked Up? And how that film came out back when Katherine Heigl was still doing movies and not starring in Suits? Well, she’s now 20 and I feel ancient.
Bailee Madison is all grown up! Except not really because she’s still only 18 and we’ll always associate her with playing Young Snow White in the criminally underrated/criminally deranged Once Upon a Time.
Otherwise known as Bella Hadid’s friend and the very best part of Grown-ish, Luka Sabbat is a model who is infinitely cooler than all your faves combined, and he achieved peak coolness before it was even legal for him to buy a drink to toast himself.
Another Disney alum known for the show Bunk’d (not to be confused with Punk’d — I know, it’s difficult). Hard to believe she’s still just 20, right?
Based on this picture of Zara Larsson looking like a bona fide Instagram model, I refuse to believe that she isn’t 21. Someone is lying to me, and I think it’s Wikipedia.
