The Curious Case of a 32-Year-Old Man Who Looks Like a 14-Year-Old Boy

According to his birth certificate, Denis Vashurin was born in 1987, but looking at him you would swear he's still in his early teens. People can’t seem to get over how incredibly young he looks for a 32-year-old man, and Denis himself admits that’s why he prefers living in a small village, instead of moving to the city. Everybody knows him in Russia’s Krasnoyarsk region, and he gets to spend time alone doing what he likes — hunting, fishing and spending time with his girlfriend. Denis revealed that his parents noticed he wasn't like other children at a very young age. He was always the smallest one in his age group, but that really didn’t bother him in the beginning. He was a very active child and could do all the things the other kids could do. In fact, he never even had to face any bullying. Although he has managed to lead a fairly normal life, Denis admits that he still has to prove his real age. He was once pulled over by traffic police and was immediately suspected of forging his driver’s license. After confirming his age, the police started making jokes about how young he looked, which he found inappropriate. Despite his youthful appearance, Denis says his body ages at the same rate as other people his age. As for his personality, his friends say he’s more like a “grandpa.” “I’m a bore, I’m stubborn, I’m lethargic, like a bear during hibernation,” Denis explained with a laugh. The 32-year-old has been dating his girlfriend for four years now. Luckily, they’ve known each other for a long time, so he didn’t have to prove his real age to her.
