hollywood’s 5 hottest actresses over 40

Let’s face it: in the movies, looks are everything. But even for movie stars looks fade with the march of time. The superficial focus of the entertainment industry can make Hollywood a tough town for an older actress to find work in, especially if she coasted along on her beauty rather than her talent when still young. The five veteran actresses in today’s article seem to have found a way to avoid confronting the issue entirely, however, and stay hot. Despite the fact that their average age is 48, all five are still head-turning beauties. And hey, what do you know: all five are still working actresses.

5 Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek is just a few years short of her fiftieth birthday and is still a strikingly attractive woman. Even more striking is the fact that she’s also an extremely talented actress. Hayek won an Academy Award for her portrayal of the eponymous title character in the 2002 film “œFrida.”The fact that she managed to stay relevant at all after the 1999 Will Smith debacle known as “œWild Wild West”was impressive as well.

4 Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catherine Zeta-Jones is a woman of many contradictions. The raven-haired beauty’s dark complexion looks nothing like that of most of her fellow Welshman. Her name sounds almost Hispanic in origin. And her husband is twenty five years her senior. Oh well, who cares: she’s 43 and still the envy of women half her age. Zeta-Jones has starred in multiple films and is also a talented stage actress. She even won a Tony Award for her performance in the 2010 run of the musical “œA Little Night Music.”

3 Jane Seymour

Jane Seymour is old enough to be the mother of several women on this list, yet she is still looking great. And at 62 years of age, that alone is damned impressive (we should really ask her about her diet), but for Seymour, being in her seventh decade and still being smoking hot isn’t enough. No, this former Bond Girl keeps on appearing in TV shows and on the big screen year after year. She has also penned several “œinspirational self-help”books, but we somehow forgot to read those.

2 Halle Berry

Did you know that Halle Berry is almost fifty years old!? Hard to believe, we know”¦ so we checked and double checked and yes, it’s true. This talented, Academy Award winning, former beauty pageant queen clearly has some sort of age-defying serum she makes in an underground laboratory, because neither the years nor even parenthood has managed to make her any less stunning. Only a back-to-back viewing of the films “œCatwoman”and “œSwordfish”can make her appear less attractive, and the lingering effects of these films fades after only a day or two.

1 Jennifer Anniston

Jennifer Anniston was every guy’s crush in the 1990s and early 2000s when starring on the hit show “œFriends.”(She was also the object of every girl’s envy for being married to Brad Pitt.) She was also every guy’s crush in the later 2000s and early 2010s when merely being a stunning movie star. In her 44 years on earth, Anniston has established a hairstyle, starred in dozens of films and apparently amassed personal wealth of more than $100 million. She is also apparently pregnant every few weeks, according to stupid tabloids.
