James Marsden surprised fans when he took his mini-me son, Jack, to the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night.

Not only were fans blown away that Jack looked like a younger, blonder version of his famous dad, but many couldn’t believe the “Westworld” star had a 15-year-old son to begin with.

Anyone else perplexed as to how James Marsden's son looks older than him? Som real Benjamin Button stuff right there. That jawline tho!— Jay Stevens (@jaystevensradio) January 30, 2017
Despite his youthful good looks, Marsden is actually 43 years old. The actor had his teen son and 11-year-old daughter, Mary, with ex-wife Lisa Linde. He also has a younger son, four-year-old William, from his former relationship with Brazilian model Rose Costa.
At the SAG Awards, the dad-of-three spoke fondly of his eldest boy. “He’s a great kid, he doesn’t need much advice, I go to him for advice,” he told E! News.
But when asked what words of wisdom he tells his son, the actor added: “[Just] stay true to your heart and respect others — all those good human things we try to teach each other. Regardless of what business you're in.”

Marsden also revealed during the red carpet pre-show that Jack is cooler than him: “I’m just trying to keep up with him, the dress, the attire, he wears things I can’t.”
Jack has certainly inherited his dad’s killer fashion sense and good genes – just look at that jaw, and those cheekbones! – but he has no plans to follow in his father’s footsteps.
“I'm going to try to do music,” the 15-year-old revealed on the red carpet.
By the sounds of it, we can expect to see more of mini-Marsden in the future!
