The term “hot mama” took on a whole new meaning when the film The Graduate was released, as it depicted a sultry older woman named Mrs. Robinson seducing a newly-graduated young man played by Dustin Hoffman, who went on to fall in love with the older woman’s daughter. The film has been referenced in pop culture numerous times, including in comedy films such as Wayne’s World and American Pie.
In American Pie, the hot momma made her presence known; she was someone that every young boy fantasized over. After all, with everyone being into health and beauty regiments, not to mention plastic surgery, it’s easy-peasy for older women to look smoking hot and proudly strut their cougar stuff. But can we take it one step further and say there is such a thing as hot grandmas? The list below proves that such women very well exist!
12 Goldie Hawn
She’s pushing 70 but doesn’t look a day over 40. It’s hard to believe that Goldie Hawn has three grown children, especially when she’s seen beside her equally beautiful daughter Kate Hudson, who looks more like her sister than her offspring.
The Academy Award winner’s last movie may have been way back in 2002, but she’s been busy with more meaningful endeavors for her foundation. According to E! news, Hawn has five grandchildren: three from her son Oliver Hudson and two from Kate.
11 Tina Turner
Yes, she may be considered one of the music industry’s greatest artists but the distinction was not without its drawbacks. While successful in her career, Tina Turner had quite the tumultuous personal life, which included domestic abuse, suicide attempts, and strained relationships with her family.
Turner has two sons, Raymond and Ronald. Considering she’s considered to have one of the best pairs of legs in the world, she looks pretty good for a grandma, having two grandchildren from son Ronald.
10 Ivana Trump
She’ll always have the distinction of being Donald Trump’s first and original wife, not to mention the mother of Ivanka Trump. Ivana Trump was married to the Donald for 15 years, bearing him three children, all of whom are brilliant and heavily involved in the family business, which Ivana herself helped grow before the divorce.
At 66 years old, she’s quite young to have a whopping seven grandchildren, according to her Wikipedia page: five grandchildren by her eldest son Donald Jr. and two by her daughter Ivanka.
9 Jessica Lange
Jessica Lange looks amazing for a 66-year-old and she’s fortunate to have not just a pretty face but the acting chops as well, having garnered several awards for her performances. She has won two Oscars, three Emmys, and five Golden Globes.
Lange has had a colorful personal life as well, having had three children with two different men. But it was becoming a grandmother that made her want to do something that was more meaningfully geared towards children. According to Huffington Post, she wrote a children’s book about her beloved granddaughters.
8 Priscilla Presley
She’s one of the wealthiest divorcees in Hollywood, having married and divorced the king of rock n’ roll, Elvis Presley. According to People and The Daily Mail, she married Presley at the tender age of 21 but amicably divorced him in 1973.
At the age of 70, she’s a grandmother four times over through Lisa Marie, who has four children: a son and daughter by her first husband Danny Keough and twin girls by her fourth and current husband Michael Lockwood.
7 Sophia Loren
She’s considered one of Hollywood’s greatest actresses, not to mention one who oozed with sex appeal. Even at 80 years old, Italian screen legend Sophia Loren exudes tons of confidence and magnetism.
An article in The Telegraph states that Loren once had an affair with Cary Grant, but the relationship fell through, leading her to marry Carlo Ponti, Sr., the only man she has ever wed. By him, she has two sons, and through her sons she has become a grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren.
6 Blythe Danner
She may be more known today as the mother of Gwyneth Paltrow, but back in the day, Blythe Danner was herself a great actress, having won a Tony Award and two Emmys. Her career took a backseat so that she could raise her two children by late husband Bruce Paltrow.
Today, Danner is a doting grandmother to her daughter’s two children Apple and Moses and according to Hollywood Life, she is very much involved in helping raise them. She sets aside all poise and doesn’t hesitate in goofing around with them either.
5 Susan Sarandon
Susan Sarandon’s daughter Eva Amurri bears an uncanny resemblance to her mother, so much so that the 30-year-old played the younger version of her 68-year-old mother’s character in the comedy film That’s My Boy.
Sarandon looks amazing for her age, given the fact that she has three grown children. According to People, she became a grandmother for the first time in 2014 when her daughter gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Sarandon quipped that she wanted to be called "Honey" rather than Grandma.
4 Suzanne Somers
She was probably the actress who set the stereotype for the dumb blonde when she played the role of the ditzy Chrissy Snow in the TV sitcom Three’s Company. Suzanne Somers also gained fame for promoting exercise and weight loss, which probably resulted in her having that gorgeous body.
An article on People mentions that Somers considers it a huge compliment when she tells people that she has five grandchildren because she revels in their collective gasps of disbelief that someone who looks as good as she does can be a grandma already.
3 Naomi Judd
At 69 years old, she looks decades younger than her actual age, likely due to her svelte figure and fiery red hair. But Judd is already a grandmother twice over through her daughter Wynonna, according to People. Her grandson and granddaughter refer to their grandmother as Mawmaw.
2 Kate Capshaw
Her claim to fame is she appeared in the second installment of the Indiana Jones film franchise, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Kate Capshaw is more popularly known as the wife of Steven Spielberg, whom she met during filming of the blockbuster movie.
At 61 years old, Capshaw is a grandmother through her eldest daughter Jessica Capshaw, herself an actress. According to The Daily Mail, the younger Capshaw was pregnant with her third child in 2012, bringing the total number of grandchildren of the older Capshaw to three.
1 Jane Fonda
Not very many actors have had the privilege of being in Hollywood for five decades and those who do are certainly considered institutions in the business. One such person is Jane Fonda, who was born with a silver Hollywood spoon in her mouth, being the daughter of legendary actor Henry Fonda.
At 77 years old, she looks like she’s in the prime of her life and doesn’t look at all like she’s a grandmother of two. According to Huffington Post, she has two teenage grandchildren by her daughter Vanessa.
