London: Actor Ryan Phillippe is apparently desperate to look older.

The ‘Cruel Intentions’ star smokes cigarettes and downs alcohol to age his youthful skin.

However, the 36-year-old has managed to avoid succumbing to the ageing process, and is amused when he sees stars he worked with in the early days of his movie career as they now look a lot older than him.

"It`s weird. I feel like a vampire. I’ll see people I worked with then who look like they could be my parents now. I don`t understand,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling the Metro newspaper.

"I do take care of myself but I drink a fair bit and I still smoke cigarettes, which I shouldn`t. I have tried to age myself. It`s just not working," he added.
