I’ve been watching a lot of movies lately, and I’ve noticed that some Hollywood stars age more gracefully than others. Of course, looks are vital to their career and I can imagine them investing thousands and thousands of dollars just to stay looking that way, but you have to admit that not all of them succeed in maintaining their gorgeous looks over the years.
Below I will list several of my favorite actors actresses who look great then and now, and why I think they look great (and some
minor major digression).
George Clooney tops my list because, well, George. Like I need an explanation, would you agree? To my eyes (and it seems a million other women’s eyes), his brooding looks just gets better and better each year.
People Magazine naming him Sexiest Man Alive twice (in 1997 and 2006), and why wouldn’t they? He would get my vote every year. How his fans must have sighed when he finally decided to marry again in 2014.
I remember there was a lot of brouhaha over his marriage to British-Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, but of course that can only be expected when you’re one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood.
Next up, a recent favorite of mine, Helen Mirren. I love her so much in both RED movies. I am looking forward to the third (read somewhere it’s in development) so I can watch her kick ass again.
Last night we watched the second installment of National Treasure (starring Nicholas Cage) and she was there as Cage’s mother. Her role is not as cool as her role as Victoria Winslow in RED, but she looks fabulous in there, just the same.
Man I wish I would look good as her when I am her age now. I read she’s had work done, but in Hollywood, who hasn’t? She was a total babe then, and she’s still hot even now. 69 years old and that body? Yes please!
It would be grossly unfair to Liam Neeson if he isn’t included in this list. At age 63, he is every bit perfection. He incidentally lived with Helen Mirren in the early 80s. Since his wife of fifteen years Natasha Richardson died last 2009, there was little report of him dating.
He’s so unbelievably sexy in the first Taken movie, although I couldn’t care less about the second installation. There’s already Taken 3, if you can believe it, and I’ll probably watch it just to stare at Liam. I mean seriously, how many times can you be kidnapped in one lifetime? He’s proven to be a great action star, I just hope they give him new material.
Meryl Streep is the next woman on my shortlist. She just exudes grace and elegance, and her being very vocal about being against plastic surgery to stay young-looking just makes me admire her beauty more. Of course she could be lying, but if so, then the work done on her is very becoming.
At 66 years, Meryl has done countless of award-winning films and is widely regarded as one of the greatest actresses of all time. So not just beauty, but raw talent, as well. In The Devil Wears Prada she is just so fashionably lovely, and even when she’s pure evil, one can’t help but still love her.
I’m not the greatest Pierce Brosnan fan in that I don’t actively seek to watch the films that he is in (maybe I should, now that I think about it), but I still believe he is one hot number, even at 62. He doesn’t look like he had any work done (on his face at least), and his laugh lines are just the sexiest.
He was married to Australian actress Cassandra Harris for 11 years, but Harris died of cancer in 1991. He remarried again after 10 years, this time to American journalist Keely Shaye Smith. They’re still married, which is a rare occurrence in Hollywood. He’s involved in some environmental and charitable work, which I think completes the package. Handsome, sexy, loyal and socially-aware. Okay I’m definitely going to watch more of his films now.
Last in the list is Susan Sarandon, but being last does not mean she’s less beautiful than the other women in this list. I’ve always admired beauty, ever since I first saw her in The Witches of Eastwick.
I’ve also seen The Big Wedding, a more recent film in which she stars in, and I cannot believe how beautiful she still is after all these years. And her boobs! OMG, they look good for someone who’s 69.
This post gave me an idea for another article. Next time we’ll be featuring those celebrities who I think aged terribly. That should be horribly fun!
