Inspired by Buzzfeed’s list of 25 Celebrities Who Are Older Than You Thought, here are 10 more actors who played much younger characters.
1. Stockard Channing in Grease
Olivia Newton-John was famously 29 when she played Sandy, but John Travolta was 24 – hardly a teenager himself. The now 57 year-old was already 22 when he played a school bully in Carrie – but he was still one of the youngest people to be nominated for a Best Actor Oscar, for Saturday Night Fever in 1977. If you already knew all that, it might still come as a surprise that their classmate Rizzo – Stockard Channing – was 34, a full decade older than Travolta.
