Charlie from The Santa Clause is 32 now and people are completely freaking out

Charlie from The Santa Clause is now 32.

When chatting about favourite Christmas films over the last month, The Santa Clause emerged as a popular fan favourite partly thanks to adorable Charlie.

The film was released in 1994 and it’s made an appearance in our festive viewing schedule ever since thanks to the feel-good message behind the movie.

However, the news that Eric Lloyd, who played adorable little Charlie Calvin in The Santa Clause and The Santa Clause 2, is now 32 has shocked us completely.

Yep, you can thank the internet for making you feel old this Christmas Day for there’s more than a few people surprised about the fact that Charlie is officially grown up.

Charlie was just eight when he starred in the first film which would mean he celebrated his thirty-second birthday this year.

Say what?!

It’s good to know we’re not alone in feeling old because everyone else is expressing their shock at this rather random fact on Twitter.

The popular opinion is that Eric is rather attractive.
