Beautiful Women Over 40 - Part 3

Beautiful Women Over 40 - Monica Bellucci, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis and more.

Here is my third article featuring beautiful women that have passed the forty year mark in their lives.
I have to admit, I think this article has some of the loveliest ladies so far.
Including some of my own personal favorites.
And the world is better represented this time, with actresses from Italy, Wales, England and of course the USA.
They say that 40 is the new 20.
And these ladies prove it.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman - Beautiful Women Over 40

Nicole Kidman was born on June 20th, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii, but her career actually started in Australia.
Her breakout role came in the 1989 thriller Dead Calm, and was followed by films like Days of Thunder, Billy Bathgate and To Die For , just to name a few.
Of course she is also known for being married to Tom Cruise from 1990 to 2001.
Now she is married to country singer Keith Urban.

Monica Bellucci

Monica Bellucci - Beautiful Women Over 40

Here is a woman that I have always thought was drop dead gorgeous, and time is doing nothing to lessen that beauty.
Monica Bellucci was born on September 30,1964 in Città di Castello, Umbria, Italy.
I think I first noticed her in the 2001 film Brotherhood of the Wolf (which I loved) and then in The Matrix Reloaded as Persephone.
As of 2015, she has appeared in well over 60 films.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catherine Zeta-Jones - Beautiful Women Over 40

When I saw her in The Mask of Zorro , I thought that Catherine Zeta Jones was one of the (if not the) most beautiful women in the world.
She was simply breath-taking.
Catherine was born on September 25th, 1969 in Swansea, Wales, UK.
She has appeared in over twenty films, and really got respect for her role as Velma Kelly in the 2002 film Chicago .
For that role she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and won and was nominated for a whole slew of other awards.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis - Beautiful Women Over 40

Of course I had Jamie Lee Curtis on one of my Scream Queen Hubs, but this lady is here because she has decided to age naturally.
It puts a lot of people off to see a lady that was once widely regarded as a sex symbol with grey hair, but Jamie (or Lady Haden-Guest, yes, she is a real Lady) looks like she is going with, instead of against the sands of time.
This actress, author and inventor (she holds at least one patent on an invention) has appeared in over sixty films starting with John Carpenter's Halloween in 1978.
She was born on November 22nd, 1958 in Los Angeles, California.

Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren - Beautiful Women Over 40

Helen Mirren is the embodiment of class and beauty.
She was born on July 26th, 1945 in Hammersmith, England.
During her career she has won an Academy Award, four SAG Awards, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards and was invested as a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) on December 5th, 2003.
So far she has appeared in over 100 films.
If you doubt Helen at all, Google the red bikini pic of her a couple of years ago.
I think she was 63 then.

Jane Seymour

Jane Seymour - Beautiful Women Over 40

Bond girl Solitaire and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman Jane Seymour was born on February 15th, 1951 in Hayes, Middlesex, England.
Besides being an actress and an author (she's written eight books) Jane was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, in 2000.
She has appeared in almost 100 films, starting with an uncredited role as a Chorus Girl in the 1969 musical, Oh! What a Lovely War.

Teri Hatcher

Teri Hatcher - Beautiful Women Over 40

Teri Hatcher is another actress known for a nighttime soap, Desperate Housewives.
But I first remember her as Lois Lane on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993-1997).
Remember the pic of Terri wrapped in Superman's cape?
That pic was downloaded over 20,000 times in 1995.
Teri was born on December 8th, 1964 in Palo Alto, California.

Mariska Hargitay

Mariska Hargitay - Beautiful Women Over 40

Mariska Hargitay - Beautiful Women Over 40

Born on January 23rd, 1964 in Santa Monica, California, actress Mariska Hargitay really has genetics going for her.
She is the daughter of professional bodybuilder and Mr. Universe of 1955, Mickey Hargitay and one of the blonde sex symbols of the 1950s, Jayne Mansfield.
Tragically, Mariska was asleep in the backseat of the car during the accident that claimed her mother's life.
Mariska has appeared on a lot of TV shows, but she is probably best known as Detective Olivia Benson on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Although she has been panned and praised for her role, Mariska has won two Gracie Awards, an Emmy, a Prism Award and a Golden Globe for her portrayal, so someone likes her.
Her acting debut was in the 1985 horror-comedy, Ghoulies.

Kim Cattrall

Kim Cattrall - Beautiful Women Over 40

Kim Cattrall - Beautiful Women Over 40

Kim Cattrall was born on August 21st, 1956 in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, England, UK.
Although most of you know her from her role as Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, she first caught my attention back in 1984 in Police Academy and after that in the awesome Big Trouble in Little China (1986) with Kurt Russell.
During her career, Kim has appeared in almost ninety films.

Kate Walsh

Kate Walsh who plays Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC dramas Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice was born on October 13th, 1967 in San Jose, California, U.S.
She started her career as a model in Japan, then came back to the US and appeared in Off-Broadway plays, then moved to television, films and theater.
Besides her role as Addison Montgomery, I think her most long lived appearance was as Nicki Fifer on The Drew Carey Show from 1997 to 2001.

bgoodall on January 02, 2012:

Although I hate to admit it I've fallen in love with Desperate Housewives and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Teri Hatcher. I would never have guess that she is over 40!

suzana on December 20, 2011:

fitnesszone from New York on November 25, 2011:

Some beautiful women in the list, but I would add Jennifer Aniston as well.

dobo700 from Australia on November 06, 2011:

Catherine Zeta-Jones gets my vote

TorremochaJ on September 17, 2011:

But when they reach 50, beauty started to fade.

miteshrock121 from Mumbai on September 03, 2011:

real life starts after 40 many people after 40 use this words

SAMSON on September 03, 2011:

Monica Bellucci, Jane Seymour and Catherine Zeta-Jones are my favorites on this list, but I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Lois Lane of the 90's, Teri Hatcher. A fine collection of talented and truly gorgeous women (oh, yes, and as you pointed out, kudos to Jamie Lee Curtis for deciding to "age" naturally.)

Wolfyone from Central Maine on July 30, 2011:

I was glad to see you include Helen Mirren on the list. She is a great example of a woman who although older is still beautiful, sexy and classy.

Obscure_Treasures from USA on July 27, 2011:

I have always been a huge fan of Catherine Zeta-Jones nd Monicca belluci....Hot hub.It really astonishing to knw tht they are 40+ bt still they grow younger day by day...

Husky1970 on June 27, 2011:

Great choices. Age is just a number. Beauty is ageless. Voted up and beautiful.

Moonchild60 on May 16, 2011:

My husband loves Teri and Catherine. He doesn't like what he calls "little girls". He likes women who look like WOMEN. So he would LOVE LOVE LOVE this list. I am nearly 51 and I think I'm doing okay ...until I see these women! LOL

WallStickerDecals from US on April 27, 2011:

They are all gorgeous even they are old already.

MAGICFIVE from New York on February 15, 2011:

This tribute is amazing - I love it. The first woman looks like she's in her twenties! However, if plastic surgery/botox is involved, I'm far less impressed (not mentioning any names here)! My favorite is Kim Catrall. She was always the funniest on Sex and the City, and I LOVED her character's confidence and the way she pulled that off. Confidence is sexy at any age!

kimberlyslyrics on February 12, 2011:

What an awesome hub!

And so refreshing [ suppose it helps I am 44 and was feeling old but now refreshed so I thank you bunches!]


Dinesh Mohan Raturi from Dehradun on February 08, 2011:

Cathy Nerujen from Edge of Reality and Known Space on October 06, 2010:

These ladies really are so amazing, I give my vote to Jamie Lee Curtis, as she is all-round not just beautiful, but has an amazing personality, and the one lady I'd most like to meet for coffee and snacks. Lol. I love these hubs you are doing lately, they are so cool. Thanks for a great hub.

WoosterSpring from The Central Valley in California on July 17, 2010:

What I appreciate about your list is the diversity. Hale Berry and Angela Bassett (forgive me for any misspelling of the names)qualify also as those rare beauties!


kiigeorge on July 16, 2010:

Some of these ladies are out of this world! My top three votes - Monica Belluci, Terri Hatcher, Mariska Hargitay. Gotta say its a great photo of Nicole too. Nice pic of Sabre Blade too ..sucking on that blade ..ouch!

lukeyg83: Yes, like OC said, Halle was on the very first Hub.

ocbill from hopefully somewhere peaceful and nice on July 16, 2010:

Nice list. I like Teri Hatcher, Catherine Zeta and Marisa Tomei...but I was dumbfounded to not see Demi Moore or Halle Berry here then I saw the 1st part. Ooops..OK, then Stacy Dash could find a spot on your list too.

lukeyg83 from Leicester on July 16, 2010:

Brilliant! Although I agree with Michele that Halle Berry might have snuck into it - probably ahead of kim cattrall!!!!

sabrebIade (author) from Pennsylvania on July 15, 2010:

Michele: Ummmm...did you see the first Hub?

Terri Bruner on July 15, 2010:

This a beautiful article about life's beautiful woman over 40 and I agree with you because I am ONE OF THEM!!

Michele on July 15, 2010:

No women of other races? What about Halle Berry or Jennifer Lopez? Maybe this is alist of the most beautiful caucasian women. If so then I agree with you.

sabrebIade (author) from Pennsylvania on July 09, 2010:

Cheeky Girl: Thank you! A Fish Called Wanda is one of my favorite comedies period.

Cassandra Mantis from UK and Nerujenia on July 09, 2010:

I never knew Mariska was the daughter of Jane Mansfield. That is quite an interesting pedigree right there! Great hub of really great ladies, all beautiful and they hold their own! Jamie Lee will always be my fave, I laughed at her in True Lies opposite Arnie , and again in A Fish called Wanda opposite John Cleese. A True Lady!

You're the Greatest!

maruthirp from Hyderabad on July 02, 2010:

This is really great list of women over 40. I really loved this post.

Mike Lickteig from Lawrence KS USA on June 26, 2010:

Monica Bellucci, Jane Seymour and Catherine Zeta-Jones are my favorites on this list, but I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Lois Lane of the 90's, Teri Hatcher. A fine collection of talented and truly gorgeous women (oh, yes, and as you pointed out, kudos to Jamie Lee Curtis for deciding to "age" naturally.)

Great list, thanks again.


Susan Hazelton from Northern New York on June 26, 2010:

You have a wonderful list of women. My personal favorite is Mariska Hargitay. She is natural with a universal appeal. Of course, I would give my eye teeth to look like any one of them.
