Beautiful Women Over 40 - Part 2

More of the most beautiful women over 40

Here is my follow up to my last article about the most beautiful women in entertainment that are over 40.
The term "Over The Hill" has no meaning anymore as scientists really are saying that 40 is the new 30.
And these "mature" women are living proof.
This time we have several successful singers as well as actresses, a former Miss America and an iconic sex symbol.
Some of these women even have daughters that are getting into acting, and may become the next generation of beautiful women.
And one has been a spokes model for L'Oréal for twenty seven years.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock

At the moment, America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock is the tabloid's sweetheart as well, thanks to her relationship with motorcycle builder and Monster Garage host Jesse James.
But Sandra (born in Arlington, Virginia on July 26th, 1964) has survived bad relationships, car accidents and at least one stalker.
She'll survive this.

Courteney is best known for playing Monica Geller on the sitcom Friends, her roles in Scream, Scream 2, Scream 3 and she and her husband David Arquette will reprised their roles in Scream 4 (which I am very interested to see how Wes Craven pulls this off).
Right now though she is appearing on ABC's sitcom Cougar Town as Jules Cobb.

Marcia Cross was born on March 25th, 1962 in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
I have always liked Marcia, and thought she had a weird, almost ethereal vibe to her.
She made her acting debut back in 1984 on the soap opera The Edge of Night as Liz Correll.
But she is probably best known for her roles on two nighttime soaps....
Melrose Place (1992-1997) as Dr. Kimberly Shaw Mancini, and Desperate Housewives (2004) as Bree Hodge.

Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch

One small paragraph cannot do justice to Raquel Welch.
She was born on September 5, 1940 (yes she is almost 70) in Chicago, Illinois.
Raquel is such an icon, that she managed to remain a sex symbol throughout the 60s and 70s.
No small feat.

Andie MacDowell

Andie MacDowell

Andie MacDowell

American model and actress Andie MacDowell was born on April 21, 1958 in Gaffney, South Carolina.
Andie started out as a model, and then moved into acting where she appeared in a little over forty films.
I really had no idea she was in that many movies.
Her debut was as "Jane" in the 1984 film, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes.

Diane Lane

Diane Lane

Diane Lane

Diane Lane was born on January 22, 1965 in New York, New York.
She debuted in the 1979 film "A Little Romance", and was named by Time magazine as "the new Grace Kelly".
I have liked her since "Streets of Fire" when she was Ellen Aim.
I don't care if she did lip-synch.
And I like her so much that I can even overlook her being in "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" as Martha Kent.

Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano

Alyssa Milano

From Who's the Boss? (1984) to Melrose Place (1997) to Charmed (1998), Alyssa Milano has been a part of modern TV history.

Alyssa has been involved in humanitarian and political causes, starting with Ryan White amd AIDS in the 80s, UNICEF, PETA and Charity:Water.
And also, the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship, The Milano is named after Alyssa.

Good hub-Vanessa Williams is the most beautiful of them all.

While they're all beautiful, special hats off to the brunettes. Marissa Tomei has always been a favorite of mine since her A Different World days. Demi and Shania keep getting better with age.

ronala on October 04, 2010:

Hey this sounds abite great and exicting although i donot undertand the criteria used by you while figuring these out just like i have had problems with my miss Universe, Miss (Country), Miss MTV, and the list is nameless. I really think my mom can be amongst the most beautiful women although she is only know by those around her and only a few who have seen her. Besides beauty which lies in the beer hold, i consider: inteligence, style, general presentation and conduct, repect for oneself and others, what that person has done for others within reach of herself, up bring of oneself and the family, honesty, dress code and the list of qualities is endless. otherwise thanks i think i know en have heard over 90% of those in your list.

Oh by the way how about you. I guess en suggest that you could be amongst the most beautiful ones.

JSAlison on October 03, 2010:

These look like the kinds of women my mother always advised me to stay away from. Elizabeth Hurley looks positively carnivorous, lol.

ashleyyoung from United States on September 11, 2010:

Great list! In addition, Kirstie Alley is also a very beautiful woman who's over her 40's. Despite her age (and current figure), she still comes off as hot and sexy to me.

Guillermo Ramon from Miami on June 25, 2010:

Raquel is such an example of beauty regardless of age. All of them together show us that beauty is not just something that nature or God give. Beauty is the result of very hard, sustained work.
