Actresses Over 50

Actresses are not only in the business of acting – they are in the business of looking younger and this means that a considerable amount of time and effort goes into turning back the clock, where it is possible.

Hollywood has never been kind to aging starlets, but thanks to modern technology, it seems as though 50 really is the new 30 – at least when it comes to these gorgeous fifty year old actresses.

Michelle Pfeiffer

Michelle Pfeiffer is one of those over fifty year old actresses who seem to have stopped ageing altogether – she looks exactly the same today as she did when she appeared on our screens with Robert Redford in Up Close and Personal in 1996. Pfeiffer was born in California, so maybe there is something about the Santa Ana air that has helped to keep her looking so young, even at 54.

Julianne Moore

There is something about this dazzling redhead that simply actresses over 50blew viewers away when she suddenly appeared on their television screens in the early 1990’s. Born in North Carolina in 1960 to a Scottish-descended mother and an American father, she is considered today to be one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood.

Emma Thompson

Emma Thompson was born in London in 1959 and is now 53. This talented actress is close friends with Brits Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry. As a child, Thompson was no stranger to television – both her mother and father were actors.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis is another Hollywood actress that simply refuses to age. The actress was born in California in 1958 and is now 54. This perky horror vixen is perhaps best known for her role as Laurie Strode in the hit slasher film Halloween.

Madonna

Madonna might not be known as an actress first and foremost, but this over fifty year old singer / actress certainly has a few credits to her name. Madonna is best known for how many times she has reinvented herself to remain relevant and it has most certainly worked; she has not only sold more than 300 million records, but she has also walked home with 7 Grammy awards.

Elle Macpherson

Elle Macpherson is a model / actress that most people would assume is still in her 30s, but she’s actually 51.

Kelly Preston

Kelly Preston started out as a model, but she eventually made a name for herself on the silver screen. This over fifty year old actresses is married to none other than John Travolta – one of the many reasons she probably stays young on the inside, as well as on the outside.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock is perhaps one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and she joins the list of over 50s by turning 51 this year.

This list of stunning over fifty year old actresses just goes to show that you don’t have to lose your looks as you age – in fact, it seems as though time is ageing these ladies like a fine wine and they are only getting better with each passing year.

    Being based in the UK I tend to be more aware of British actresses than those from other countries, though having said that I think Goldie Hawn and Susan Sarandon (both American) still look good. For British (and Irish) actresses I would put forward the names of Michelle Fairley, Felicity Kendall, Niamh Cusack and Hayley Mills as persons to whom time has not been unkind. Honor Blackman looks extremely handsome for somebody in her nineties (in my opinion at least).
