    Stacker organized a list of celebrities’ ages by looking at the top 10 actors for each year using the website IMDb’s STARmeter, and combining that with the most monthly Wikipedia page views for November 2017 through December 2018.

    Stacker’s list of the most famous actors born in the same year as you starts in 1918. A sneak preview: “Home Alone” child actor Macaulay Culkin is now 38 years old.
