Can You Tell Which Paul Rudd Is Older? (We Doubt It)

This quiz originally ran in March 2013. With Rudd looking somehow younger in Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp than he did in the movie, we have updated it.

We accepted that Paul Rudd was 40 in This Is 40, because it was right there in the title. But if it had been called This Is 26, we would have accepted that just as easily. Because while in human years Rudd may be 45, he never seems to actually age: He looks 32ish and he always has, even when he was 26 and starring in Clueless. Clothes and facial hair might change, but Rudd consistently appears to be untouched by the usual physical transformation that comes from spending increasing time as an alive person. In fact, we challenge you to distinguish between his ages. In the following quiz, you’ll see seventeen pairings of pictures of Rudd at different ages — some are four years apart, some are eleven, some are somewhere in between — and you have to guess in which of the two he is older. (To make things tricky we have taken away any clothing that might provide year-specific fashion clues!) Right or wrong, the year the photo was taken will come up to show you exactly how ageless he is. Good luck!
