Most people consider their 30s to be the prime of their life. It's the decade when you officially stop acting like a child and begin to embrace adult life and responsibility.

When we take a look at some of the biggest and most popular celebrities of the past few decades, a lot has changed since the time that they were 30 years old. To get a better idea, let's compare how they looked back then versus today.

George Clooney at 31 years old.

A lot of people tend to think that ER was the series that launched George Clooney's career. While there's no denying it had a major part to play, his role as Booker Brooks in Roseanne was his first big break.

George Clooney is a certified silver fox and has been one of Hollywood's brightest stars for the past three decades. Later this year, George is set to reunite on-screen with Julia Roberts in Ticket to Paradise.

Eddie Murphy at 31 years old.

At 31 years old, Eddie Murphy was at the top of his game and on top of the world. He portrayed Thomas Jefferson Johnson in The Distinguished Gentleman and two years later completed the Beverly Hills Cop trilogy.

OK, so Coming 2 America wasn't exactly all that audiences hoped it would be. However, fans of the iconic comedian shouldn't lose all hope, as it was just announced that filming for Beverly Hills Cop 4 is now in pre-production.

Ray Romano at 38 years old.

In the mid-90s and into the early '00s, Ray Ramono truly was a giant among men. His hilarious semi-autobiographical series Everybody Loves Raymond was churning out Emmys left, right, and center, and helped Ray to become one of television's highest-paid actors.

These days, Ray has a bit more salt and pepper shining through, although he still looks as vibrant as he did 30 years ago. If you've yet to see him in the HBO Max series, Made For Love, it's arguably his best role in decades.

Catherine O'Hara at 38 years old.

For as long as I live, Catherine O'Hara will always and forever be Kate McCallister. Both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York have become holiday staples for my family, and for millions around the world.

Ever since the cameras stopped rolling on Schitt's Creek, many fans feared that Catherine was inching her way into retirement. However, I am happy to report that she is slated to appear in the globetrotting spy film, Argylle.

Julianne Moore at 31 years old.

Clearly, red hair and curls were all the rage in the early '90s — as were broad-shouldered blazers and power suits. I know that Julianne's work in Body of Evidence isn't her best, but it's not nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

As anyone with eyes to see can attest, Julianne Moore knows the pathway to the fountain of youth. Earlier this year, Julianne appeared opposite Finn Wolfhard in Jesse Eisenberg's directorial debut, When You Finish Saving the World.

Arnold Schwarzenegger at 37 years old.

Although he wasn't quite the Austrian Oak at 37 years old, Arnold Schwarzenegger still had a physique that would make most human beings tremble in their boots. All throughout the '80s and well into the '90s, he was Hollywood's most popular action hero.

Even at 75 years old, Arnold could still outwork and outhustle men and women more than half his age in the gym. He's gone from being a film star to a politician, and now a philanthropist and activist.

Helen Mirren at 36 years old.

Anyone who knows anything about me understands my love and appreciation for Dame Helen Mirren. Not only is she arguably the most talented actress of the past 50 years, but she's also easily one of the most beautiful women walking this earth.

Helen Mirren today, at 77 years old.

Helen Mirren isn't one to run from anything, least of all the aging process. She's as authentic as they come and will always hold a cherished place in the deepest recesses of my heart.

Julie Andrews when she was 30, compared to today at 86 years old.

I grew up watching Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music and Mary Poppins, and it was a childhood well spent. I don't know many 86-year-olds who are arguably still in their acting prime, but then again — Julie Andrews is one of a kind.
