Paul Rudd can do it all. Over the years, he's appeared in everything from rom-coms like Clueless and Knocked Up, to buddy comedies like Role Models and I Love You, Man, and now even helms his own action franchise as Ant-Man. One thing the guy can’t seem to do, however, is age. Today the Avengers star turns 50, and the internet duly lost its mind over his impossibly boyish looks.

Ant-Man director Edgar Wright wished the star a happy birthday, and offered a hint as to how Rudd has won his battle against the sands of time.

There were also dissenters, including singer-songwriter Jason Isbell, who found support in comic Andy Richter.

It's a fair, but sadly wrong hypothesis. Gerard Butler is very handsome, as is Matthew McConaughey and Peter Dinklage, all actors who turn 50 this year. You can be handsome and have crows' feet and laugh lines, sun damage or a receding hairline. That's not the case with Rudd: What he's got going on has to be witchcraft.

Rudd has offered a few tips on how he's achieved an ageless visage, and sadly there appears to be no secret fix—he told InStyle that he chalks his boyish looks up to the fact that he's a "big believer in sunscreen." If he has any less obvious anti-aging secrets, he’s kept mum about them. "I'm 80 years old on the inside," he joked last month at a reunion of the cast of Clueless. "In here, pure darkness," said Rudd, pointing at his chest. "And a little moisturizer."
