People have been searching for a cure for getting old since the beginning of humanity. We all wish we could stay young and healthy forever, but science just hasn't figured it out yet.

But Paul Rudd clearly has.

If you've seen the 53 year-old actor, you know that he definitely doesn't look his age. Luckily for us, Rudd is finally willing to spill his secret.

In a recent interview, Rudd talked about how the most important part of his routine for staying young is sleep.

“Then diet. Then weights. Then cardio. People ask me, ‘Can you send me your meal plan? How many times a week do you work out? Do you drink? Do you eat carbs? Do you have a cheat day?’ The most important part of training is sleep. People will set their alarm and then sleep for four hours and they’ll get up so that they can train. They’re doing themselves a disservice. If you can somehow get eight hours of sleep …”


Seems easy, right?

The internet wasn't sold, though, on Rudd's explanation for his looks. There was a lot of speculation on how he looks so young and none of it involved sleep.



Others pointed out that getting a full night's sleep is not as easy as it sounds.

It's true that the average person doesn't get enough sleep. If Rudd is any example of what more shuteye can do for you, we really should be prioritizing it.

As an exhausted mom of two toddlers, I know firsthand what sleep deprivation can do to you and how it can age you. So, while sleep alone is likely not the anti-aging cure we were hoping for, it certainly can play a roll in how you look and feel.
