We hardly observe that we are actually living in a youth obsessed culture. More surprisingly this culture has been greatly influenced by the Tinsel town, where many famous faces look apparently frozen with time. But, thankfully not every celeb succumbs to this prevailing youth look pressures. In fact certain celebs are actually reaching out and setting examples of women who are gracefully wrapping their arms around the aging process and embracing the truth with svelte and complete grace. Here are 8 twenty something looking hotties who are actually 40 plus and who are truly acing the ageing process. The reasons contributing for their peerless good looks could be many such as maintaining a positive attitude, a specific diet plan, a particular healthy habit or even wearing wrinkles with pride. Read along to find out!
8. Laura Linney, Age 47:
Laura Linney is an American actress and singer and is best known for her Showtime series “The Big C.” The series is about a woman with terminal melanoma and it jibes exactly with the three times Oscar Nominated actress’s mantra of making the most of your life. Laura believes in living her life actively and with much awareness. She completely believes in taking chances and gives the same advice to other women too.
7. Monica Bellucci, Age 49:
A fashion model and well-known actress, this Italian damsel doesn’t look like she’s 49! No, not at all! If you check some of her old photographs, having a gap of around 4 or 5 years, you’d be amazed to see that she has just got sexier and more beautiful with age. Now, that’s quite rare. Her beauty mantra, as she told a Daily Mail journalist during an interview is to just Eat, Love and Live. Men must be thinking – is that all? We refuse to believe that!
6. Gwen Stefani, Age 41:
The “Hollaback Girl”, Gwen Stefani was undoubtedly a classical beauty, but her look today completely keeps us awestruck and amazed. No mom has ever looked like the way Stefani does and she gracefully manages to redefine expectations of what a woman in her midlife is supposed to look like. She strongly believes that motherhood is not at all dull and it doesn’t stifle a women’s creativity at all.
5. Catherine Zeta-Jones, Age 42:
Zeta Jones believes that regular moisturizing helps her keep her skin to maintain its radiance and youthful tone. She accepted that for many years she believed that too much moisturizing helps prevents your makeup to stay on for too long, but now she believes that it is a complete fallacy.
4. Salma Hayek, Age 44:
Hayek with her “I am What I am” attitude has actually become a role model for many women. A strong activist against domestic violence, she supports various issues related to women and has no problems speaking it out loud that Hollywood just doesn’t want to see Latina women in lead roles. She bluntly accepts the fact that she was a bit intimidated by ageing and now she’s no more afraid of it. She today runs her own range of beauty products known as Nuance by Salma Hayek, which are inspired by her grandmother’s beauty secrets.
3. Demi Moore, Age 48:
Moore believes that the secret to her youthful look is to keep it simple. She moisturizes on regular basis and no matter what time she reaches home, she always takes out time to cleanse and moisturize her face. Moore strongly believes in the fact that if you focus on good skin care, then you really won’t require putting on a lot of makeup.
2. Halle Berry, Age 45:
According to Berry’s longtime trainer, no 20-year old can compete Berry as she completely defies her age. And we all can rightly agree to that! The Oscar winning star just doesn’t want to settle down with this, she wants to explore every aspect of physical exercises to see how that works for her. The actress also believes in exfoliating her skin and she also rubs pure Vitamin C on her face before putting on moisturizer.
1. Jennifer Aniston, Age 42:
It seems every time you look at a picture of the former ‘Friends’ star, she’s keeps looking better and better. She looks much fitter and confident than ever before. She gives credits to her regular yoga sessions and consistent exercises for her enviable body and her anti-ageing effects.
