10 Actresses Going Through ‘The Change’
Hitting the big 4-0 has always been taboo in our culture – it was a thing to be feared. Women turned 39 several times before they would officially succumb to the inevitable 40. It has to happen though. You can’t trick father time, even if you can scam him with a couple nips and tucks along the way.
However, the stigma associated with this unavoidable fate has been all but forgotten thanks to some well-known Hollywood babes who have made aging, both graceful and sexy. Some of these women are even sexier than actresses half their age. Take a good close look at LiLo lately? Not to be mean but that’s a rough 25 years of aging.
The women who populate this list aren’t quite over the hill yet but are standing at the precipice – and still smoking hot as ever.
Tiffani Thiessen, you had us back in 1989 when we first saw Kelly Kapowski’s shining face at Bayside High. It’s no wonder you were captain of the Bayside Tigers cheerleading squad and the apple of Zach Morris’s eye.
While Thiessen hasn’t in the spotlight much over the last few years (with the exception of several TV series we don’t think anyone was watching,) a quick internet search will prove that she’s still got the same appeal as she did in her ‘Saved By The Bell’ days.
Q: What do wine, cheese, and Kate Beckinsale all have in common? A: They get better with age. This babe comes to us from the across the pond, and if her good looks don’t reel you in – perhaps her sultry British accent will.
While she may be standing on top of the hill and about ready to go over it, the likes of People and Esquire Magazine have ranked her among the world’s sexiest and most beautiful women.
Milano may be at the cusp of 40, but she’s still the girl (and not the woman) next door.
The All-American actress got her start playing Tony Danza’s daughter on ‘Who’s The Boss?’ and in a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen type fashion – we watched on TV as the teen queen blossomed into womanhood and finally reached an age of legality (did we says legality? we meant “maturity”).
We should also thank her for starting the “sexy girls in sports gear” trend but that’s a blog for another time.
If Vergara’s 19-year-old son had a nickel for every time one of his friends told him his Mom was hot, there’s a good chance the kid would never have to work a day in his life. Like a good tamale, Vergara comes served muy caliente (or for you non Spanish speaking type folks – very hot.)
Hailing from Columbia, the Cover Girl became a household name when she went prime time with her role on Modern Family where she plays the wife of actor Ed O’Neill – or as you may remember him from his Married with Children days: Al Bundy.
We can all agree that Vergara is quite the upgrade from Peg.
Rose McGowan has the edginess of a suicide girl, coupled with a unique appeal that allows her to hold her own against mainstream celebrities in Hollywood.
McGowan tends to choose movies of a badass caliber, case and point – Planet Terror. In the film she loses her leg, replaces it with a combination rifle/grenade launcher, and then proceeds to kill zombies with it. Let’s recount – sexiness, guns, and zombies. If that’s not a trifecta of awesome, then we don’t know what is.
While McGowan has made some interesting choices when it comes to her male suitors (we’re looking at you, Marilyn Manson) we’ll take this as a good sign – meaning, we have a chance.
It’s hard enough to believe that Jennifer Garner has 39 years of life under her belt, let alone that she’s birthed 3 children – without a doubt, Garner is one of Hollywood’s hottest Moms.
The brown eyed babe lights up the screen with her million-watt smile, which is off-set by a pair of all too adorable dimples. She’s won us over by playing an assassin and a super hero, but not so much by marrying Ben Affleck.
We’re not the only ones who have gone goo-goo for Garner, she’s been featured as one of People Magazine’s Most Beautiful People, and was ranked No. 1 on Maxim’s 2002 Hot 100 List.
The ‘Bring It On’ actress is cordially invited to bring it on to us – anytime, anywhere.
Union played opposite Kirsten Dunst in this movie, as the rival captain of a high school cheerleading squad. Not only did she look great gyrating in her uniform, but unbeknownst to us the actress was actually 28 when the film was shot (we were none the wiser.)
Nearly a decade later she’s still bringing it and if you don’t believe us – look no further than 3D magazine’s World’s Most Beautiful spread which features Union in a series of bikini shots in all her 39-year-old glory.
Talented, sexy, and funny – Banks is a triple threat that should send any actress running scared regardless of their age.
Whether she had you with her role in the cult-classic Wet Hot American Summer, the Spider-Man movies, ‘Zach and Miri Make a Porno’, or on the television show ’30 Rock’ – chances are you’ve seen Banks somewhere and became as enamored with her as we have.
Banks, if you’re having an over the hill party, our RSVP is a very enthusiastic “Yes.”
Carmen Electra may have only been a cast member of ‘Baywatch’ for one season but there’s good reason her character was always remembered. Of course, what we’re talking about here is her incredible acting skills and not anything that starts with the number 32 and ends with Double D.
The vixen has been in Playboy five times, the most recent being their 55th anniversary issue in 2009 – proving to the masses that even later in life she’s still got the same Baywatch beach bod that is forever engrained in our minds.
At first glance, raven trussed beauty Selma Blair may not grab your attention. At second glance, you reconsider and decide there’s something about her that you like. By the third glance you can’t quite put your finger on how it happened but you’re in love.
Perhaps it’s because she’s striking, or presents with a dry cynicism that’s somehow enticing.
Blair has been on FHM’s Sexiest Women list, hailed as one of People’s World’s Most Beautiful People, and was included in Glamour’s 50 Most Glamorous Women of 2008.
Clearly we are not alone in thinking Blair’s a babe.
