Since emerging in Hollywood on One Life To Live back in 1992, one thing has been constant in actor Ryan Phillippe‘s career – he doesn’t age. We’re not saying this in the, ‘he’s a timeless actor’ way, although we do love us some Phillippe screen time. Flags of our Father? Yes please. Cruel Intentions? Keep it on a loop all night. We mean the man has not gotten older. At all.
Phillippe’s latest role is in the TV series Shooter, where he plays a retired expert marksman and Marine who comes out of his self-imposed exile after learning about a plot to kill the President. The first season not only follows Phillippe’s character on his mission to save the POTUS, but, through a series of flashbacks, reveals why he left the military.
Shooter, available now on CraveTV, is not only an action packed series, but also another piece of evidence suporting our theory that Ryan Phillippe has not aged, at all, in 20 years. Two decades. Five Olympics. However you want to slice it, the Hollywood A-lister is one of the few thespians who can play a character in present day and in flashbacks to his childhood. It’s a gift worthy of an Oscar, but today we’re awarding him with something even better. A gallery of his ageless good looks.
Don’t believe us that RP is has the contents of the Fountain of Youth in his S’well Bottle? Here’s proof.
Here is photographic evidence that Ryan Phillippe does not age
2017Here's how we know the Ryan Phillippe of today, which interestingly enough is the same as the Ryan Phillippe of many yesterdays.Getty Images
2016His first year of shooting Shooter and still no greys/wrinkles/signs of time passing.Getty Images
2015We'd be smiling too if we had figured out immortality.Getty Images
2014RP knows the secret to looking youthful is to not follow the fashion fads, and keep your look timeless. Is this blazer from 2014 or 1914? Who can tell?Getty Images

2012Same shirts/face, different year.Getty Images
2011Fun fact, Ryan Phillippe has said in interviews that he still gets carded. In this photo he is 37 years old. Life isn't always fair.Getty Images
2010He's also said that his daughter gets upset when people think he's her brother. Look on the bright side, kid. You hit the genetic lottery.Getty Images

2008Maybe we need to drink more water. Is water the answer? Maybe it's water.Getty Images
2007How many men can use scruff to their advantage and not look older when they don't shave? One per cent. Maybe two.Getty Images

2005Forget Men In Black. Phillippe is straight up Benjamin Buntton'ing us.Getty Images

2002Seriously, how is this even possible?Getty Images
