Seven-time Olympic Gold Medalist Simone Biles made national headlines this week after an airline stewardess mistook her for a child on a recent flight and offered her a coloring book.

Simone may only be 4′ 8″ but at 25 years old, she’s no kid. Simone’s response on social media was priceless.

Blame it on good genes, great skin, small frames, or our own inability to successfully keep track of time. Here are a handful of celebrities who are older than we may think.

ELEVEN is all grown up!

Actress Millie Bobby Brown who stars as “Eleven” on the widely popular Netflix series “Stranger Things” became an adult this year celebrating her 18th birthday on Feb. 19.

Marsai Martin has played the younger daughter “Diane Johnson” on ABC’s hit TV show “Black-ish” for eight seasons and is now approaching her 18th birthday on Aug. 14.

Another TV character who has literally grown up in front of our eyes is “Lily” from “Modern Family,” played by actress Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, who joined the show when she was only 3 years old. Aubrey is nearly driving-age having turned 15 on June 6.

Jaden Smith made his acting debut in 2007 playing the son of his real-life dad, Will Smith’s character in the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness“. Over the years, Jaden has achieved multiple accolades as an actor, performer, and digital content pioneer. No longer that shy little boy portrayed on the big screen, Jaden is now an outgoing confident 24 year old.

It’s truly an interesting process to witness or experience your favorite celebrities maturing with you. When watching TV, it seems like the characters we love will never grow old.

Check out this list of celebrities that shocked us when we realized how grown they are! This list is comprised of stars that are definitely too old for coloring books.
