Pharrell Williams' boyish good looks -- as seen in February 2017 here at the 89th Annual Academy Awards Nominee Luncheon in Beverly Hills, California - had the Internet convinced in 2014 that he's secretly a vampire. He's not, obviously, but we understand why many can't believe that this 44-year-old superstar looks so young. Take a look back at Pharrell through the years and see if you can spot any aging: Kevin Winter/Getty Images North America/Getty Images

We know it's hard to tell, but Pharrell Williams, left, and rapper Bow Wow, center, actually aren't the same age. When this photo was taken in August 2003, Williams was 30 and Bow Wow was 16. (That's Williams' musical partner in crime, Chad Hugo of their production group The Neptunes, on the right.) Scott Gries/Getty Images
By 2004, Pharrell had been outed as the music industry's go-to guy for a chart-topping hit. But even with the increased visibility and work, do you see a stress wrinkle on this guy's face? Because we don't. Evan Agostini/Getty Images
Maybe part of what makes Pharrell look forever young is his youthful approach to fashion, although we can't recommend you try this look at home. Scott Gries/getty images
We'd have a glow, too, if we hung out with Mariah Carey, as Pharrell did in Paris in March 2006. The pair were shooting scenes for a music video to go with their single, "Say Somethin.'" Francois Durand/Getty Images
With a nickname like Skateboard P, we know that Pharrell isn't averse to letting some physical activity put the blush in his cheeks. Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images for The Chamber Group
Seen here with T.I. in 2008, we bet you can't guess how old either of these music stars are. (Give up? T.I. was 28 while Pharrell was 35.) Theo Wargo/WireImage for Diesel/GETTY IMAGES
If we didn't know better, we'd think Pharrell was stuck in some sort of "Benjamin Button"-like aging process, wherein he was born looking 22 and then never ages at all. Noel Vasquez/Getty Images
In 2010, Pharrell tried to trick us into thinking he was aging with a mustache and a fake gold tooth, but we can see under the mask, P. Bertrand Rindoff Petroff/Getty Images
Pharrell insists that the secret to his dermatological success is simply washing his face, but we wonder if having an impressive hat repertoire has something to do with it. Alexandra Wyman/Getty Images for Soho Beach House
From what we know of maintaining good health (and skin), you have to find time to relax, which Pharrell appears to do here at a press conference in Hong Kong in April 2012. Victor Fraile/Getty Images

He's been hailed for his impeccable style. He showed some of that off at the 2014 Elle Style Awards. Anthony Harvey/Getty Images
Then again, maybe Pharrell's passion for what he does helps him look so refreshed. He was clearly thrilled to take the stage with Nile Rodgers, left, and Stevie Wonder at the 2014 Grammys. Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images
