They say that age is just a number, but in Hollywood it’s a number many people try and hide.
What with plastic surgery on tap, and gossip magazines counting every laughter line, are there any celebrities who simply let nature take its course? Are there any famous faces that have said no to the scalpel and still look phenomenal?
Of cause there are! Here are 10 celebrities who have aged gracefully:
1. Helen Mirren
Ever since those photos of Helen Mirren frolicking on the beach surfaced back in 2008, women all over the world have been queuing up for her anti-ageing secrets.
Amazingly, the actress is 67 years old! With a glowing complexion, Helen has really embraced her age and looks amazing for it. She also seems to have beaten the Hollywood curse, and is still bagging huge roles in some amazing blockbusters.
2. Olivia Newton-John
Everyone remembers Sandy and that amazing leather cat suit.
Fast forward 35 years and leading lady Olivia Newton-John still looks phenomenal. The 64-year-old is still fresh faced, and sporting her famous blonde locks. Still making music, Olivia is another lady defying supposedly-sexist LA.
3. George Clooney
George Clooney has been daubed the ‘Silver Fox’ for as long as anyone can remember.
But take a look back at his E.R. days, and you’ll see that the 51-year-old has barely aged a day. His jaw is still chiselled, and he’s still wooing women half his age. George has definitely aged gracefully – in fact, he might even look better as he’s got older!
4. Richard Gere
Rom-com favourite, Richard Gere has been making movies since the 1970’s.
But take a look at the 63-year-old now, and you’ll see he’s barely aged a day since Pretty Woman in 1990. 23 years older – how does he do it?! Apart from the slightly greyer hair, Richard is still breaking hearts in Hollywood.
5. Meryl Streep
Academy Award winning actress Meryl Streep has defied age, and defied the curse of Hollywood. It’s hard to believe the stunning actress is 63 years old!
Meryl is one actress who has resisted the urge to go under the knife, and has settled for good old fashioned moisturiser and plenty of water. Her clear skin and complexion are the envy of many twenty-something’s.
6. Jamie Lee Curtis
Daubed the “scream Queen” for her plethora of roles in horror movies, those frights have certainly done Jamie Lee Curtis no harm.
The 54-year-old may have greyed over the years, but she has a complexion – not to mention figure – women of just about any age would die for. Still looking amazing and still working, Jamie Lee is proof that some things really do get better with age.
7. Johnny Depp
It’s hard to believe that Captain Jack Sparrow will turn 50 this year.
Actor Johnny Depp has had one of the best Hollywood careers around, dated some of the most beautiful women in the world, and shows no sign of slowing down. The 49-year-old is still considered one of the most attractive actors around; a sign that he really has aged gracefully.
8. Susan Sarandon
Famous for her role as Janet in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Susan Sarandon has worked in TV and film since 1969.
The Academy Award winning actress is now 66 years old, but is still as fresh faced and gorgeous as ever. Embracing her age, Susan is still treading the boards on stage and screen. She, like all these other celebrities, shows there really is nothing wrong with growing older gracefully.
9. Bruce Springsteen
“The Boss” himself, Mr. Bruce Springsteen is still rocking away and entertaining crowds at festivals and stadiums all over the world.
The Grammy award winning singer-songwriter is 63, showing that you’re never too old for rock ‘n’ roll. Despite his rocker roots, Bruce has certainly aged much better than fellow rock-stars Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger!
10. Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant has been breaking hearts as the perfect English gent in movies since the late 1980’s.
