Everyone is aware that as we get older, our appearance and bodies change, and usually not for the better. Over time, we develop wrinkles, our muscles become softer and less toned, and generally, we start to look less attractive. But, there are a certain few who manage to maintain their looks, and instead of a rapid decline in their appearance, they seem to age like a fine wine.
And in today's modern age, with all of the anti-aging creams, pills, and ointments, along with all of the plastic and cosmetic surgeries available, we're starting to see more and more people manage to maintain their good looks even into their senior years. Of course, being rich and famous helps, as it can become quite expensive to fight father time.
This seems to be the reason why there are so many celebrities past the age of fifty that still look as attractive as they did during their younger years -- or close to it, at least. With money (a lot of money) and a little effort, you can battle the effects of aging and keep your looks longer than ever before. Having said that, some manage to do it naturally as well.
It surprising to see the long list of celebrities who are now in their fifties and still looking as ravishing as they did when they were in their prime. In fact, there are so many that making a list of fifteen was extremely complicated. It's not easy to leave off big name celebrities like Jodie Foster, Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Still Sponge-worthy), Lisa Kudrow, Mary Steenburgen (Step Brothers), Lauren Holly (Dumb And Dumber), Elisabeth Shue, Rebecca De Mornay, Meg Ryan, Bridget Fonda, Vanessa Williams... and the list goes on and on.
As you can see, we have a very competitive field, so we had our work cut out for us picking a group of former actresses, musicians, and models to represent the hottest female celebrities in their fifties. And believe it or not, there are plenty of celebrities in their sixties who are still worthy of a fantasy or two, but that's for another article.
So without further ado, let's have a look at the hottest celebrity females in their fifties, and if we left anyone off, please let us know.
15 Cindy Crawford
News flash: Cindy Crawford is now over 50 years old! That's right -- our childhood dream girl whom many of us had posters of on our walls in our bedrooms growing up is now 51 years old. Here's another news flash: still hot! It's really no surprise that a model made the list (there are more, actually), but Cindy is known as one of the top models of all time.
Years of modeling helped Cindy become a true international celebrity and also aided her in becoming an actress, with various television, movie, and hostess roles. Known for her trademark mole above her lip, Cindy became the highest paid model in history, according to Forbes. And she's modeled for all the top companies out there, including Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Versace, Guess, Gap, Clairol, Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne, Maybelline, and millions more. A true legend!
14 Brooke Shields
Ah yes... how can we forget Brooke Shields? There's no way we can make a list of hottest women in their fifties without including her. It's crazy to think that she's now 52 years old, considering how she got her start as a child actor and model. All these years and decades later and she's still a stunner.
Although Shields made many television and movie appearances, she's most known for her modeling career, which covered just about every gig you can think of. We got used to seeing Brooke just about everywhere we looked, especially during her short-lived marriage to tennis star Andre Agassi, which lasted only a couple of years. Brooke Shields became famous for being famous, but we can't discount her long list of television, movie, and hostess appearances, as well as her eulogy at Michael Jackson's funeral.
13 Elizabeth Hurley
As you can see, even at 52 years old, Elizabeth Hurley is still smoking hot. Born on June 10th, 1965 in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England, this British actress was recruited by cosmetics giants Estee Lauder at the age of 29 to become a representative and model for their products. Also a businesswoman, Hurley also owns her own line of beachwear.
Liz is most known for her relationship with actor Hugh Grant in the '90s. The power couple met in 1987, and his relations with a prostitute in 1995 only solidified Hurley's fame as she stood by her man after the scandal. As an actress, everyone remembers her for her classic role as Vanessa Kensington in the hit movie Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery. Recently, she publicly showed support for the UK leaving the EU, also known as Brexit.
12 Shania Twain
Our first musician on the list is 51-year-old Canadian singer and songwriter Shania Twain. This Hall-of-Famer has sold an incredible 85 million records, making her, according to Wikipedia, the best-selling female artist in the history of country music and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. She's won five Grammy Awards and 27 BMI Songwriter Awards, has stars on Canada's Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
As one of the greatest female country singers of all time, Twain appeared in the 1998 first edition of the VH1 Divas concert and sang alongside Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Carole King, and Aretha Franklin -- quite an impressive group to be affiliated with! She's still sexy and still making music in 2017.
11 Demi Moore
At 54 years old, it's safe to say that Demi Moore's still got it. The famous actress who starred in two unforgettable movies, Ghost and A Few Good Men, is an A-list actress who's been on the minds of men all over the world for decades now. Perhaps, her lead roles in Striptease and GI Jane helped with her reputation as a sex symbol, but not only is she rocking hot, but she's a damn good actress as well.
Demi is also known for her very public 'private life,' as she's had some famous partners over the years, most notably Bruce Willis and Ashton Kutcher. Her marriage to Bruce Willis in 1987 made them one of the most famous couples in the world. After they divorced in 2000, Demi found a new A-lister in up-and-coming Ashton Kutcher. They married in 2005 before ending it in 2013. The good news is that she's now single, in case you were wondering.
10 Heather Locklear
It's hard to believe that little Heather Locklear is now 55 years old, and she really hasn't changed much, as far as her looks are concerned. The actress whom many of us grew up watching is still at it as she recently appeared in the television movie The Game Of Love and in Tyler Perry's drama Too Close To Home.
Aside from her famous rock and roll partners Tommy Lee and Richie Sambora (from Bon Jovi), and her numerous run-ins with the law, we all remember her most for her countless acting roles in hit movies and television series like Melrose Place, Dynasty, TJ Hooker, Spin City, and our personal favorite comedy movie Money Talks. Despite the long career and bouts with substance abuse, she's still looking as good as ever.
9 Sharon Stone
At 59 years old, Sharon Stone is the oldest celebrity on the list, but she's still in her fifties, so she gets the nod. Like all the others here, Sharon is still hot even in her senior years, but unlike the others, she's got that element of sexiness and seduction that's unrivaled. She proved that in her box-office hits Basic Instinct, Sliver, and Casino.
Sharon has a long list of movies to her credit, as well as numerous nominations and awards. She's not only an A-list actress but also a pioneer in her genre of going all out to make her male fans drool at the sight of her and her work. Stone is still active today, as she starred in the independent drama Running Wild in 2017, but despite all the movies she's ever done, she'll always be remembered for her roles in Basic Instinct and Silver.
8 Michelle Pfeiffer
Just behind Sharon Stone in terms of age -- both are 59, but Sharon is a month and a half older -- Michelle also has a ridiculously long list of movies, nominations, and awards to her credit. Both are legendary actresses and sex symbols for their era. And although Pfeiffer is known for her roles in hit movies like Married To The Mob, What Lies Beneath, Hairspray, The Fabulous Baker Boys, Hairspray 2, and Batman Returns, among many others, she'll always be known for her unforgettable role in Scarface.
Scarface launched Pfeiffer's career into the stratosphere and made her a household name. Blessed with beauty and acting skills, Michelle continues to make movies to this day and recently completed the independent drama Where Is Kyra? and the HBO film drama The Wizard Of Lies. She's still very active and very beautiful. Lucky for everyone.
7 Kathy Ireland
Anyone who grew up reading Sports Illustrated knows who Kathy Ireland is. Her seductive eyes and figure caught the eyes of everyone during her multiple Swimsuit edition photo shoots. And it seems that the now 54-year-old model hasn't changed much as she still looks as dazzling as she did in those Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Editions. Okay, maybe not 'as dazzling,' but she isn't far off. Oh, and by the way, she appeared in 13 consecutive SI swimsuit issues.
After her success as a supermodel, Kathy founded a brand marketing company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide, "which has made her one of the wealthiest former models in the world," according to Wikipedia. Forbes has the model/businesswoman listed as having a net worth of $420 million after selling over $2 billion in merchandise. What a life for this beauty with brains!
6 Sandra Bullock
The now 52-year-old actress, producer, and philanthropist from right outside of Washington DC beat out some serious competition to make the list -- which again, wasn't easy. Sandra is mostly known for her roles in feature films such as Gravity, The Proposal, Crash, Ms. Congeniality, and, of course, The Blind Side. She's made a lot of movies during her long acting career, including her recent hit, Gravity.
As a producer, Sandra founded the production company Fortis Films, which produced several of the films in which she starred in, including Two Weeks Notice, Miss Congeniality 2, and All About Steve. She was also an executive producer for the ABC sitcom, George Lopez, and made several appearances in the show.
5 Marisa Tomei
Well, George Costanza would be proud of the sweet, little native of Brooklyn, New York who is now 52 years old. Too bad George was engaged. He probably shouldn't have mentioned that and will be living in regret for the rest of his life.
Marisa has done tons of movies over a career spanning three decades, but her claim to fame or what she will be remembered for the most is her role in the movie My Cousin Vinny. We can still hear her saying 'Buick Skylark' with that sexy New York accent of hers. She ended up receiving an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the film.
She's recently appeared in the films Captain America: Civil War (2016) and Spider-man: Homecoming (2017). Still doing movies and still looking good!
4 Halle Berry
The now 50-year-old former beauty queen turned actress, who was also a spokeswoman for Revlon has had quite a career that still has no end in sight. After finishing as the 1st runner-up in the Miss USA Pageant and finishing in 6th place in the Miss World Pageant in 1986, Halle turned her attention to acting where she's had an unbelievably success run.
According to Wikipedia, "Her breakthrough film role was in the romantic comedy Boomerang (1992), alongside Eddie Murphy, which led to a full-time career making feature films." Some of her most notable films include The X-Men series where she played the role of Storm. Berry won the 2002 Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the romantic drama Monster's Ball. She's still the only black woman to have won a Best Actress Academy Award.
3 Courteney Cox
We had to include at least one member from the smash hit television series Friends. Lisa Kudrow, who is also in her fifties, could've made this list as well. As for Courteney, she's now 52 years old and still has her good looks and outgoing personality that we've all come to adore and admire over the years.
Aside from her glory years on Friends, the actress, producer, and director also starred in the Scream horror movies and the ABC sitcom Cougar Town, among her many television and movie appearances. She formed a production company called Coquette Productions, which she formed with her ex-husband David Arquette.
2 Sheryl Crow
The famous film score composer, record producer, musician, music teacher, and singer-songwriter is now 55 years old. Don't let her age fool you, as Sheryl is still as busy as she ever was. Her high energy, talent, and good looks are a long way from riding into the sunset.
Known primarily as a musician, she's released ten albums, two compilations, and a live album. She's sold over 50 million albums worldwide and has nine Grammy Awards to her credit. She's worked with The Dixie Chicks, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, Prince, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Tony Bennett, and countless other legendary musicians.
As an actress, she's appeared on many top shows including 30 Rock, GCB, Cougar Town, and Jon Stewart's Rally To Restore Sanity, among many others. What a talent!
1 Julianne Moore
Julianne barely squeaked her way into the list, beating out the likes of Alison Doody, Andie Macdowell (Groundhog Day), Jami Gertz (Lost Boys), Lisa Rinna (Days Of Our Lives, Melrose Place, Celebrity Apprentice) and Susanna Hoffs (Austin Powers).
The 56-year-old isn't just here because of her talent and beautiful red hair; she's also here because of her performance in one of the best comedies of all time: The Big Lebowski. Although she didn't have a main role in the film, she played her part to perfection, as did all of the others involved in that classic. Julianne also starred in The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, and, of course, her role in the hit soap opera that launched her career, As The World Turns.
