These 5 Stars Look as Fabulous as They Did Decades Ago--and Why Shouldn't They?!

We don't believe in Benjamin Button, nor do we know what looking your age is supposed to mean.

What we do believe in is health and fitness, taking care of yourself and doing whatever it is that makes you feel your absolute best, inside and out. And at the end of the day, even though the calendar ensnares us all, and it can feel as though the mirror is staring back a little too harshly at times, you're only as old as you feel.

Much ado is made, in Hollywood especially, about not just aging and looks in general, but also about the idea of a female celebrity managing to look  so young even when she's so ...

What? Old?

Perhaps it's because the women who achieved stardom throughout the 1990s—some becoming film, TV and music royalty—are now entering their 40s and 50s, we haven't really thought about them getting older, per se. Sure, they're asked constantly for their philosophies on aging in order to cure all the addled minds out there, but they certainly don't seem "old" in some traditional sense of the word. 

You certainly can't tell from their hair or their fashion, their sparkling eyes or radiant smiles, their talent or their certain je nais se quois that's still palpable 20 (or more) years since they first hit the scene as up-and-coming twentysomethings. Maybe a bright side to being so exposed in this day and age, or one of the perks of having the chance to share on social media, is that it makes us feel more as though we're all in this time thing together. They age a year, we age a year. No one isn't doing it.

 

And while the old adage is that Hollywood is the land of the young, and ageism is still a pernicious problem to be combated in La La Land and everywhere else, these ladies remain at the top of their game, in demand and wearing multiple hats—as actor, artist, producer, business owner, Oscar winner, Grammy winner...anything they've set their mind to. Genes are a head start, but these five women are living proof that there isn't a set time to "pack it in," no particular age at which you should be out of the running for the "sexy roles," no year to start wearing "sensible" styles—and no time to slow down if you don't want to.

The next generation of worried twentysomethings should take heart.

Sandra Bullock, Stars Not Aging

Over the course of eight years, Sandra Bullock , has gone from goddess to goddess. That's her on the left in 2007, three years before she won her Best Actress Oscar for  The Blind Side.  And that's her on the right, 50 years old in 2015, at the premiere of  Our Brand Is Crisis  and looking as fabulous as ever. Next up is  Ocean's Eight , in which she gets to be the Clooney—savvy, sexy and only getting better with age.
