Paul Rudd Doesn’t Age and We Want Answers!

Did you find the fountain of youth? What is your secret, you wizard?

A Paul Rudd live appearance means that, once again, the Internet is concerned about Paul Rudd and his never-aging qualities. For the last 20 years, Rudd has continued to look the same way without a new wrinkle or gray hair. We have watched as he didn’t age, we have questioned what was happening, and we have received no answers.

Did he make a deal with the devil? Did he find the Fountain of Youth and just not tell any of us? Is this a real-life Tuck Everlasting situation? What is the deal with Paul Rudd’s face?

Sure, we all make jokes about Paul Rudd, who may have a portrait of Dorian Gray-type situation set up somewhere in his mansion. We have made these jokes for years but with each new appearance, more people come to the realization that Paul Rudd really hasn’t aged that in the last 20 years. If we went back 20 years and I looked at myself, I could see how I changed, how I got older. Not Paul Rudd. He still looks like he just rolled out of Clueless, and it is both intriguing and frightening.

To make matters better, Regina King also apparently found that same Fountain of Youth.

Here’s my theory: The gods have smiled down upon select individuals, granting them fame and seemingly eternal youth so that they can help to bring peace to the world. Rudd, King, and Keanu Reeves must one day admit that they are immortal, here to make sure that we, as a society, save the planet and the world at large. Angela Bassett is their leader, and the never-aging crew will make us all see the good in humanity. It’s the only explanation, you see.

Or they just all have really good genes that make it seem like 20 years ago was yesterday. I like my theory better, but who knows, maybe all of a sudden Paul Rudd will age super-quickly like Johnny Depp. I hope he doesn’t, I am confident that Paul Rudd shall never age and my children’s children will still see his fresh-faced features as we see them, but the question must be asked of Paul Rudd.

Can we have some answers? Can you share your secrets? Is it just a jade roller to the face every morning? HOW DO YOU DO IT, PAUL RUDD?
