You wouldn’t think that a man who invented and profited off something called “The String Dance” would ever age. But it’s true: Today, Conan O’Brien turned 50 and then we all turned to each other with expressions that can only be described as “WhaaaaaA?” followed by an auditory “No. Way.” But ’tis true: Coco is half a century old.
Luckily, to offset the mind-blowing truth of O’Brien’s age, we’ve got eight other celebs who’ve just entered the fifth decade of their lives. Okay, so that might blow your mind a little more. But you’ll live.
