Tom Cruise 1986
Tom Cruise 2012
..and I used stage and red carpet pics so they weren't all makeup and lighting in 2012 (in fact the 1986 pics are more staged).
What is the secret? Who else does it? Sofia Loren always looks amazing for her age too.

I think Brad Pitt looks better - he's only a year behind Cruise.

Except Pitt keeps trying to grow face fuzz like he's auditioning for the part of Uncle Jesse.

Basically he's a guy who, since he was 21 or so, has had the job of looking like he is 21. He's got massive months ofvresourcescat his disposal to do iit. To his credit, he strikes me as a guy who understands that looking awesome is his job and he works hrd at it.

I agree with Ogul that a large part of it is probably genes. Then there is just the common sense stuff, exercise, a healthy diet, lots of sleep, and not too much sun. And maybe some spa treatments or some moisturizing creme or something...

Everybody ages differently, some people look 30 at 50, and some look 50 at 30. It's all in the genes. I don't think there is any "secret" that would allow someone with "old" genes to look much younger.
Working out helps, though.

Wow, I never realised that. Well, I'm off to McDonald's, then. Also, to smoke a couple packs of cigarettes and have a few beers.
Take some heroin too, you'll be fine, it's all genes.

Thank Christ, I've been meaning to take heroin for ages, but in the end I always chickened out because I thought it'd be bad for my health.
Heroin's a great way to get the weight off, and keep it off too. Minor side-affects to it, I hear, but I doubt anything too severe.
Yeah, I believe many guys half his age would love to look like him.
Hell, I wish I did - come this September he's be 31 years my senior!
Pitt, Depp and Cruise definitely look good for their ages. Downey Jr. isn't far off them either, and I guess Will Smith too. Samuel L Jackson too, I suppose, though he's a bit older.
One for the opposite sex now;

And then there's our own tunnel vision when it comes to celebrities: We see them as the iconic characters they created, not necessarily as themselves. I think most people perform a slight mental edit when looking at their idols throughout the years, and we tend to see them as they imprinted on us. Tom cruise will probably still be told "Man, you haven't aged a day" when he's 70, partly because of his good genes, partly because of his access to the best professionals, but also partly because to us he's not Thomas Mapother, he's TOM CRUISE. He's Maverick, Lestat, and Jerry McGuire, and that shades how we see him.

Samuel L Jackson doesn't really seem to have aged much at all. I watched Coming To America the other day, and there's barely any difference between how he looked there and how he looked in Avengers.
