It’s no secret that Hollywood is obsessed with age. More specifically, the industry is obsessed with the age of women. When a female artist or actress is introduced to the world, she is often encouraged to either avoid talking about her age, or to look especially young for her age. Of course, more and more female celebrities are starting to reject this trend, and are proudly telling the world how old they are.
These days, there are also several remedies for looking younger. Plastic surgery, non-invasive procedures and special vitamins and supplements all promise to keep women looking at least five years younger. While some of these methods are more effective than others, “regular” people are more likely to try the beauty regimens that their favorite stars are known for. Men are also trying cosmetic procedures to look younger. And, like women, some celebrity men are more fortunate than others when it comes to the outcome of these procedures.
Some people age gracefully naturally, while some readily admit that they could use a little assistance. Either way, there are several older women and men in Hollywood who are beautiful and vibrant at any age.
12. Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore got her start on soap operas, and was an actress on As The World Turns before appearing in shows like 30 Rock. She also appeared in the film Boogie Nights and Far From Heaven. Moore has appeared in several independent films as well, and is known for playing women who are particularly troubled, but it doesn’t seem like her real life mirrors many of her roles. The gorgeous redhead is also known for her fashion sense, and has written a series of children’s book to help kids embrace their individuality. The 55-year-old is a graduate of Boston University, and has two children with her husband Bart Freundlich.
11. Demi Moore
Even though she’s been making some pretty questionable decisions lately in the relationship department, Demi Moore is still one of the best looking actresses in Hollywood. The 53-year-old has three children with ex-husband, actor Bruce Willis (who also looks pretty great for a guy over 50). Her daughter, Rumer, is a former winner of Dancing With the Stars, and Demi was there to support her daughter every step of the way. Moore is also known for her marriage to Ashton Kutcher (who is now married to Mila Kunis), and has been dating younger men in an attempt to show the world that she is still hot and desirable.
10. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp is known for his killer good looks and smoldering eyes. He’s also known for playing several different types of roles, and isn’t afraid to get into costume. He made his debut in the 80s drama 21 Jump Street, and Depp was the star of the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, and he’s also famous for Edward Scissorhands and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. Depp also “suited” up for Disney’s modern adaptation of Alice In Wonderland. Depp seems to be a pretty friendly and caring person in real life, and his daughter, Lily-Rose Depp seems to have a real future in the modeling world.
9. Helen Mirren
One of the reasons Helen Mirren is so hot is because she fully embraces her age and looks beautiful doing it. The British actress is 70 years old, and has been married to Taylor Hackford since 1997. She started acting with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the 1960s, and is an Oscar, Emmy and Tony winner. Mirren is known for her roles in movies such as Hitchcock, Red, Red 2, and The Madness of King George. Helen Mirren is also not afraid to show her body on screen, and was doing nude scenes well after her 30s. These days, however, she says that she prefers to keep her body private for her husband.
8. Olivia Newton-John
Oliva Newton-John will always be known for her roles in Grease and Xanadu. Newton-John is also an accomplished singer, and had five number one hits on the Billboard charts. She started a girl group when she was 14, and the rest was history. The singer is 67 and is looking great these days. Olivia Newton-John has also been an activist for animal rights and environmental issues, and does speaking engagements all over the word.
7. Angela Bassett
Angela Bassett is best known for her portrayal of Tina Turner in the movie What’s Love Got to Do With It? She teamed up with her co-star Laurence Fishburne again for the movie Akeelah and The Bee. She also played Rosa Parks in The Rosa Parks Story, and portrayed the mother of late rapper Christopher Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.) in the movie Notorious. The 57-year-old actress was trained at Yale School of Drama, where she met her husband, actor Courtney B. Vance. The couple has two children together. Angela Bassett continues to wow us with her fashionable dresses on the red carpet, flawless skin and well-toned body.
6. Brad Pitt
Angelina Jolie’s husband has been hot for a long time. But these days, the 52 year old is looking better than ever (when he’s not wearing that mustache). Pitt is also known for his five year marriage to actress Jennifer Aniston (some people are still upset about the divorce), and even appeared on Friends with her. He made his acting debut in 1991 as the loner cowboy in Thelma and Louise, and he’s been dazzling on the big screen ever since. When he’s not raising his large family with Jolie, he’s starring in movies like The Departed, Twelve Years a Slave, Moneyball and The Big Short.
5. Vanessa Williams
Even though there was controversy surrounding her win, Vanessa Williams will always have the distinction of being the first Black woman to be crowned Miss America. Williams has had a successful music and acting career since her pageant days, and has starred in Ugly Betty and 666 Park Avenue. Williams, 53, is a proud mom to four children. She was previously married to Ramon Hervey II and Rick Fox (respectively), and has recently wed a third time to business man Jim Skrip. She is also the sister of actor Chris Williams. He’s pretty good looking too, so we’re guessing aging well is hereditary in the Williams family.
4. John Stamos
John Stamos, 52, will always affectionately be known as Uncle Jesse from Full House. He is also appearing in the Netflix spin-off Fuller House. Stamos got his start in soap operas, and is also a talented musician. Remember his band, Jesse and The Rippers, from Full House? He’s even performed with The Beach Boys! John Stamos is the spokesperson for Dannon Greek Yogurt these days, and he looks hotter than ever in the commercials. He is also starring in the new Fox comedy, Grandfathered, about a selfish, entitled bachelor who finds out that he’s a father, and a grandfather. He’s got to be one of the best looking grandfathers we’ve seen in a while.
3. Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock, 51, was named The World’s Most Beautiful Woman by People Magazine in 2015. Bullock is known for her roles in Miss Congeniality, The Proposal and The Blind Side, and can easily play both comedic and heartwarming roles. Sandra also faced some personal turmoil during her marriage to bad boy Jesse James, who cheated on her, move on to date celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D, proposed to her, then cheated on her as well. Bullock is one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, and is also a producer. She is also a Golden Globe and Academy Award winner, and is a devoted mother to her adopted son, Louis.
2. George Clooney
Few men in Hollywood are more handsome than George Clooney. He’s been a long-standing crush for men women for decades, and he’s one guy that looks great with a streak or two of gray hair. Clooney, 54, will always be known for his role on the popular medical drama ER, but he’s also starred in several movies, including the Oceans franchise, The Descendants, Good Night and Good Luck and Syriana, to name a few. George was known in Hollywood for being a long-time bachelor, and dated Stacy Kiebler briefly before breaking her heart by not proposing. He went on to date attorney Amal Alamuddin, and the two got married in 2014, much to the chagrin of many of his female fans.
1. Christie Brinkley
Model Christie Brinkley is in her 60s, and she looks fabulous. The supermodel wowed audiences when she appeared in Broadway’s Chicago, wearing a leotard and tights for most of her performance. She sang and acted pretty well, too. Brinkley is also famous for her marriage to legendary musician Billy Joel, and the two have a daughter together, Alexa, who is also a singer. Brinkley also has two children with her former husband, Peter Cook. Christie, who is 62, has been a vegetarian for most of her life, and says that her healthy diet is one of the reasons she looks at least a decade younger than she actually is.
