Briefly.co.za took a look at 5 South African celebrities who are actually much younger than people think.
There are many South Africans who appear to look older than they really are due to many reasons, but it’s always surprising when you realise just how young some of them really are.
Most times, its due to the celebs starting their careers way too early and may seem like they’re grown. Most actors and actresses have to adhere to the roles they get cast in which makes them look much older than they actually are. And sometimes, its because they are actually more mature then their peers.
