Lady Gaga had a lot to celebrate, after her song Shallow, from the film A Star is Born, won an award for Best Original Song. But it seemed there was more to celebrate than just the award...

5. Paul Rudd doesn't age

And the final surprise of the night... it turns out that Paul Rudd is taking some magic potion to stop himself from aging. OK - we can't prove he's taking magic potion, but here is the actor more than twenty years apart and can you see much of a difference?
