Hollywood’s hottest celebs over 50

Monday, 20 May 2013

While most of Hollywood has the means and the opportunities for self-enhancement (surgical and otherwise), some people just hit the gene pool jackpot and will probably look great until they turn 94. Here’s some of our favourite Hollywood hotties that are in their 50’s and beyond.


Michelle Pfeiffer
Mich has the bone structure of a china doll and she’s 55 this year – most of us can only dream to look this good when we’re 40. She’s always been a beautiful woman, and she’s aged beautifully too.

Julianne Moore
The epitome of peaches and cream, Julianne is a stunner – I think I would gawk if I ever saw her in person. A classic look goes a long way, so think twice the next time you’re tempted to launch yourself into the next big trend.


Iman is turning 60 in two years. Let’s all take a moment and let that sink in (although, I could do without the velvet suit and the excessive highlighting, but that’s probably just me, trying to feel better about myself).

Ellen Degeneres

The queen of cool is 55. I can still remember the time when everyone who was 55 wore button-down dresses with stockings and flat shoes. Now the hipster kids are wearing button-down dresses with stockings and flat shoes, and 55 year-olds looks like this. Go figure.


Diane Keaton
Diane Keaton will be 70 in 3 years’ time, although it hardly looks like she could be my grandma.

Angela Bassett
Angela Basset is in her mid-50’s, with arms (amongst other things) women in their mid-20’s dream of.

    Iman & Angela don’t look anything older than 30. Its not natural & I’m sure they won’t come out in public & reveal their secret

    Wow – But I’m sure it doesn’t come cheap or easy. Although I don’t think it was palstic surgery in these cases

    Wozers, they do look for their age. I know some 30something people that look older than them.

    It’s difficult to know how much of it is natural, ladies, and the stars aren’t always open to communicate this either. All we can say is we’re sure a healthy lifestyle, good genes and healthy diet played a role.

    They really do look radiant – how much of this is natural though?

    Simply amazing! One question though, is this what they look like without having had any plastic surgery done ever?
