Brad Pitt played Benjamin Button on film, and now, it seems like he may actually be emulating the character in real life.
The 52-year-old actor looked nowhere near AARP-status at the 2016 Golden Globes on Sunday -- in fact, he appears to have aged in reverse, just like Button!
Just look at a baby-faced Pitt in 1988:
And here's Pitt out with then-fiancee Gwyneth Paltrow in 1997:
Fast forward 18 years and Pitt -- who kept his hair swept back and donned a classic black tux for the affair -- looked as handsome as ever and, seriously, nearly the same age as his 35-year-old Big Short co-star, Ryan Gosling.
And we weren’t the only ones who noticed! A ton of people pointed the phenomenon out, including Millionaire Matchmaker’s David Cruz, who tweeted, “Whatever potion, lotion or magic witch doctor Brad Pitt is using to look so young, I WANT IT.”
Brad Pitt REFUSES to age. Seriously. The dude looks damb good for *I lost count" years old. #GoldenGlobes— Awesomely Luvvie (@Luvvie) January 11, 2016

Following the Globes, Pitt was spotted chatting it up with Selena Gomez at the ultra-exclusive CAA Golden Globe Awards after-party. The “Good For You” singer, who makes a cameo in The Big Short, shared an Instagram pic of herself chatting with the always hot actor.
"Just discussing #TheBigShort," she wrote.
Pitt and Gosling’s good looks and faux fighting certainly stole the show. To see the moment that made our hearts skip a beat, watch the video below!
