People Can't Believe That Andy Samberg Is 40

Last night Brooklyn Nine-Nine's very own Jake Peralta - also known as the actor Andy Samberg - presented the Golden Globes alongside Sandra Oh, who actually went on to win the best actress in a TV drama award for her role in Killing Eve.

While the night was filled with career defining moments for a number of the stars in attendance, audiences at home were more fixated on the fact that Samberg is 40.

Yup, despite looking about 25, Samberg is, in fact, 40 years old.

On social media people were sharing the news...




...Which kind of overshadowed the whole 'first time ever presenting the Golden Globes' thing, but I mean, fair play - he does look young. Wonder what his secret is.

And if you're still in doubt about his age, then take a look at this photo of a young Samberg with his Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast-mate Chelsea Peretti, who is also 40. So his story checks out...

The pair were actually mates in school, which is all sorts of adorable, and this recently resurfaced pic shows them way back in the 6th grade - in all their awkward pre-teen glory.

And if that isn't cute enough for you, Peretti opened up about having a huge crush on Samberg when they were youngsters.

Speaking on Conan O'Brien's chat show - cunningly titled Conan - she said: "We went to elementary school... I had a huge crush on Andy and he, for some reason, will never acknowledge this, when I bring it up, he just dead-eyes me.

"I used to call his house on like those old-timey phones that we used to have. I would call and hang up, call and hang up as some young girls do. Irritating young girls.

"I don't know what my end game was really, I didn't have a plan, there was no emojis then, that would have made it so easy you know, to flirt with him."


Sadly, Peretti will be bowing out of the show in this season, which is due to land later this week.

In a heartfelt post, Peretti, who plays Gina Linetti in the hit show, said: "I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6. But that doesn't mean I won't ever be back, winky face emoji, heart emoji.

"I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. It is hard for me to know exactly what to say."
