While the rest of us are aging swiftly, Ant-Man actor Paul Rudd doesn’t seem to age at all despite just celebrating his 50th birthday, which is a genuine feat for any human. As famously likable as Rudd is, it’s still borderline creepy.

What’s his secret? An age-defying diet? Expertly done Botox? A deal with the devil?

At a Clueless reunion, he revealed his secret for eternal youth: “I’m 80 years old on the inside. In here, pure darkness,” he said, pointing to his chest. 

Then he gave a (perhaps) more sincere half-answer: “And a little moisturizer.”

So it seems the real secret is a winning combination of a sense of humor and whatever amazing moisturizer he uses. Good genes don’t hurt either.

The Twitterverse had a mild implosion on learing Rudd turned 50 on April 6th and aired out their thoughts on the matter:

Good on you, Paul Rudd. If only we were all blessed with endless collagen production.
