It’s a bit of an understatement to say that we are a youth-obsessed culture. And no place celebrates being young and fresh more than Hollywood.
Famous tinsel town veterans like Meryl Streep have spoken out about this unfortunate reality in recent months. The Into the Woods
actress told People
this past December that it’s especially difficult for “people that pass 40.”
The three-time Oscar winner went onto say, “When I was 40, I was offered three witch [roles]. I was not offered any female adventurers or love interests or heroes or demons — I was offered witches because I was ‘old’ at 40.”
Well, Streep is not the only one who thinks it’s ridiculous to consider women past the age of 40 to be ugly witches. Refuting that claim we’ve complied a list of beautiful stars over 40.
At 42 Sofia Vergara has an enviable bod for a woman of any age. While the Modern Family
star definitely has genetics to thank, she maintains her famous curves by hitting the gym with celebrity trainer, Gunnar Peterson.
Superstar Jennifer Lopez might be in her mid-40s but the ‘Booty’ singer continues to give fans chills with her booming vocals and notoriously celebrated ‘ass-sets’. Lopez just recently stunned audiences with an incredible performance
of ‘Feel The Light’ on American Idol
Still bringing it at 50, Marisa Tomei has enjoyed three successful decades in Hollywood. We can’t be the only ones to fall even more in love with her after her knockout
role in 2008’s The Wrestler
I mean, we all saw Diane Lane’s sultry performance in the 2002 film Unfaithful
right? While she was just under 40 at the time of filming that steamy flick, the Man of Steel
actress continues to turn heads after turning 50 this January.
Michelle Pfeiffer doesn’t need to don a skin-tight cat suit to show off her eternal hotness (though she still could if she so desired). The People Like Us
actress proves that sexy transcends time and years as she prepares to celebrate her 57th birthday this April 29th.
