Walk of Fame Fierce & Fabulous: There’s No Way These Women Are Over 50 Updated 3 months ago on Aug 29, 2019 By Nicole Crump You know what they say – with each passing year, we get older and wiser. Well, this list of fierce, fabulous, and fifty-and-older celebrity women proves just that and more. Read on to see some of your favorite famous females you didn’t know are over 50 but prove that age really is just a number anyway. 1. Christie Brinkley: 65 American model and actress, Christie Brinkley earned her place in the limelight following her late 1970s appearances in different Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. As a matter of fact, she made it onto an unprecedented three covers consecutively beginning in 1979. Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images/Instagram/@christiebrinkley On February 2, 2019, Brinkley celebrated her milestone 65th birthday, telling People, “Groundhog’s Day is my birthday, and I’ll be turning 50 for the 15th time.” That’s one way to look at it! And so it seems the supermodel can also double as a comedian… and maybe even a dancer, too? Having joined the cast of Dancing with the Stars‘ 28th season, it seems we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Brinkley in the near future and we ain’t complaining. 2. Susan Sarandon: 72 Award-winning actress, Susan Sarandon made a name for herself in the Hollywood limelight towards the end of the ’80s and early ’90s. She is well known for her performances in films like Bull Durham, Thelma and Louise, and Dead Man Walking. Blackhawk Productions/C.P. Productions/Paramount Pictures/Instagram/@susansarandon But many fans argue that perhaps her most noteworthy role was in the 1975 cult film classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. As one of her first films, there’s no doubt that it helped put her on the path to greatness. As she grows older in age, Sarandon claims, “If you can continue to say yes to life and to maintain a certain generosity of spirit, you become more and more of who you are.” Thanks for the wisdom, girl! 3. Sheryl Crow: 57 “All I Wanna Do” singer, Sheryl Crow has a special prowess when it comes to creating the perfect sing-along. A platinum-selling recording artist, she has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and is the winner of nine Grammy Awards. But there’s more to Crow than just her music. Jim Smeal/Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images/Instagram/@sherylcrow The musician has also dabbled her feet in acting, having appeared on a number of different TV shows such as 30 Rock and One Tree Hill. Over the past few years, however, her career hasn’t been the only thing at the forefront of her mind. After beating breast cancer and being diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, Crow’s focus turned towards her health. But thankfully, she is said to be doing well and is working on what she says will be her final album, “Threads.” 4. Morgan Fairchild: 69 With big, voluminous blonde hair, Dallas-born, Morgan Fairchild became one of Hollywood’s first soap opera stars of the ’70s and ’80s. She started her career as Jennifer Pace on CBS’ daytime series, Search for Tomorrow and afterwards grabbed hold of her Texas roots when she played Jenna Wade in the Primetime soap opera, Dallas. Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images/Instagram/@morganfairchild1 Fairchild sure hasn’t slowed down with age, as she’s appeared on a number of TV shows in the last decade including Two and a Half Men, My Name is Earl, and Days of Our Lives. With a proven talent of being timeless, the 69-year-old actress currently uses her Twitter to draw attention to humanitarian and healthcare issues. 5. Michelle Pfeiffer: 61 Having begun her acting career in 1978, Michelle Pfeiffer landed her first leading role in musical film, Grease 2 and then rose to fame thanks to a number of class ’80s films such as Scarface, The Witches of Eastwick, and Dangerous Liaisons. Universal Pictures/Instagram/@michellepfeifferofficial But while she has received several accolades for the different roles she has taken on over the years, she is also nearly as famous for those she didn’t take on. Nicknamed Dr. No by her agent, Pfeiffer famously turned down roles on Pretty Woman, Thelma and Louise, and Silence of the Lambs – just to name a few. Nowadays, the 61-year-old actress is still making appearances on the big screen – with her most recent role being in Maleficent 2 – and she also just launched her own perfume line: Henry Rose. 6. Halle Berry: 53 Actress, Halle Berry hasn’t had the easiest time in Hollywood. Following her breakthrough role in the 1992 romantic comedy, Boomerang, she went on to star in a number of box office hits from the ’00s like X-Men, Swordfish, Die Another Day, and Monster’s Ball – for which she became the first (and to this day, only) African American woman to win the Oscar for Best Actress. Keith Hamshere – © 2002 DANJAQ, LLC AND UNITED ARTISTS CORPORATION/Desiree Navarro/WireImage But the 2004 release of Catwoman changed the trajectory of Berry’s career and critics claim she spent years recovering from its failure. Fortunately, it seems as though her career may have course-corrected after co-starring with Keanu Reeves in John Wick 3. She is now executive producer of BET’s Boomerang series – which is an update of her 1992 film – and she is also set to make her directorial debut in thriller, Bruised in 2019. 7. Julia Louis-Dreyfus: 58 Who many today would consider to be one of this generation’s most well-known comedic actresses, Julia Louis-Dreyfus is most recognized for her role as Elaine on the hit sitcom, Seinfeld. Though she owes her breakthrough to this series, her break into comedy came long before. West/Shapiro/Castle Rock Entertainment/Instagram/@officialjld The actress got her start in performance comedy in The Practical Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois and this led to her stint in Saturday Night Live between 1982 and 1985. Having also starred in The New Adventures of Old Christine and the HBO series, Veep, at 58 years old, Louis-Dreyfus has won more Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Awards than any other television performer. 8. Cindy Crawford: 53 After gracing a number of magazine spreads for over 30 years, Cindy Crawford’s success at modeling helped turn her into a worldwide celebrity that landed roles both on the big screen and small screen. And even at 53 years old today, she isn’t showing many signs of slowing down. Ron Galella, Ltd./Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images/Instagram/@cindycrawford Continuing her career in modeling, Crawford spoke to Christine Lennon at Porter magazine about how she is able to remain relevant today, saying, “I just do stuff that’s interesting to me. I do things that are fun.” And what’s fun for her – aside from striking poses – is working on her furniture line, co-writing books, and raising her two younger children, Kaia and Presley, who are also embarking on their own careers as models. 9. Courtney Cox: 55 Seeing actress, Courtney Cox’s face is sure to make any Friends fan feel nostalgic. But as an actress, director, and producer, Cox is known for far more than just her role as Monica Geller on the former NBC hit sitcom. Getty Images/Handout/Instagram/@courteneycoxofficial Cox is also praised for playing Gale Weathers in the Scream series and Jules Cobb in the sitcom, Cougar Town – for which she received her first ever Golden Globe nomination. Behind the camera, Cox is the owner of a production company called Coquette Productions, which she started with her former husband, David Arquette. At 55 years old, she is now working on her own docuseries about pregnancy called Nine Months. 10. Nicole Kidman: 52 From her Oscar Award-winning performance in the 2002 drama, The Hours, to her Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning role as Celeste White in the HBO series, Big Little Lies, it is safe to say Nicole Kidman has justifiably earned her star on Hollywood’s famous Walk of Fame. Warner Bros./Stanley Kubrick Productions/Hobby Films/Pole Star/HBO Her big breakthrough came in 1989 following her work in the thriller, Dead Calm and since then, she has won an astounding number of awards. At just 52 years of age, the actress has five Golden Globes, two Emmys, an Oscar, and a British Academy Film Award to her name. Kidman isn’t the only actress on this list that’s tied to Big Little Lies. Any guesses as to who that may be? 11. Goldie Hawn: 73 Known for her likable, bubbly personality, Goldie Hawn rose to fame in the late ’60s following her role in the NBC comedy program, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. From there, her career in comedic films took off and she has since appeared in a number of box office blockbusters. MGM/Star Partners/Sylbert Movie Company/Steve Granitz/WireImage Hawn won both a Golden Globe and Academy Award for her role in the 1969 rom-com, Cactus Flower, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her performance in Private Benjamin. Though she retired from the big screen in 2002, she re-emerged some 15 years later to appear alongside Amy Schumer in Snatched. And in case it wasn’t clear: at 73, Goldie Hawn has still got it. 12. Heather Locklear: 57 After beginning her career in 1980 with an appearance in drama, CHiPs, Heather Locklear’s career really took off following her role as police officer, Stacy Sheridan in the 1982 television series, T.J. Hooker. And despite the entertainment industry being so famously hard to crack, Locklear found great success over the years. Fox via IMDB/Amanda Edwards/Discovery via Getty Images Perhaps her most recognizable role was as Amanda Woodward on CW’s Melrose Place, for which she earned four Golden Globe nominations in a row for Best Actress In A Television Series Drama. The actress may have had a tough past few years thanks to some run-ins with the law, but we’ll still always remember her for her blinding smile and all-American charm. 13. Salma Hayek: 52 It’s no wonder some would consider Salma Hayek to be one of the most prominent Mexican figures in the history of Hollywood. Following her role in Robert Rodriguez’s 1995 mystery thriller, Desperado, Hayek was catapulted into the spotlight and rose to fame. Miramaz/Instagram/@salmahayek While she has worked in TV, having served as executive producer of Ugly Betty, the pinnacle of her career is without a doubt her performance in the 2002 drama film, Frida, for which she was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award. At 52, Hayek is now married to French businessman, François-Henri Pinault and is the mother of one daughter, Valentina. 14. Jennifer Lopez: 50 Call her what you want – J. Lo, Jenny from the block, Jennifer Lopez, whatever – but there’s no denying that this singer, actress, and overall entertainer is one of Hollywood’s biggest names. Since her breakthrough role portraying late singer, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in the 1997 musical drama, Selena, Lopez has remained in the public eye. WarnerBros/George Pimentel/WireImage Not only has she starred in a number of hit movies like Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner, but Lopez has also made a name for herself as a successful musician. At 50 years old, she is the mother of two twins with former husband, Mark Anthony, and is soon set to walk down the aisle with former professional baseball player, Alex Rodriguez. Take one good look at the entertainer and we’re sure you’ll be thinking the same thing: celebrity women these days sure know how to defy the process of aging, don’t they? 15. Lisa Bonet: 51 Recognized as the free spirit of The Cosby Show, Lisa Bonet is an actress that took Hollywood by storm starting in the ’80s. While she may have been best-known for her role as Denise Huxtable on the famous NBC sitcom in the past, today she is most noted in the news about her 2017 marriage to Game of Thrones star, Jason Mamoa. Lynn Goldsmith-Corbi-VCG via Getty Images – Jeffrey Mayer-WireImage Momoa is one of many viewers who fell in love with Bonet thanks to her performance as Denise on the small screen. In fact, he told James Corden that he’s had his eyes on her since the time he was 8 years old. While the two have two children together, Bonet has one daughter with former husband, Lenny Kravitz: Big Little Lies star, Zoe Kravitz. 16. Erica Eleniak: 50 While best known for her role as Shauni McClain in Baywatch, former model, Erica Eleniak actually had her first film debut in 1982 when she scored a small part in E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial. She then went on to star in movies like The Blob, Under Siege, and 1993’s The Beverly Hillbillies. Instagram/officialerikaeleniak/Morgan Creek Entertainment/Instagram/@officialerikaeleniak In 2001, the actress started dating a crew member of the film she was working on: Snowbound. The two had a daughter together in 2006 and in the same year, Eleniak appeared on Celebrity Fit Club. Turning 50 years old in September, 2019, the actress is set to star in two pre-production films: To Avenge and Marilyn Monroe Back? 17. Gwen Stefani: 50 There’s No Doubt Gwen Stefani is a powerful icon in today’s world of both fashion and music. Rising to stardom in the ’90s as lead singer of American rock band No Doubt, Stefani and her crew gave us some memorable hits like “Just a Girl” and “Don’t Speak.” Tim Mosenfelder/Getty Images/RB/Bauer-Griffin/ GC Images But in 2004, she broke away from band life in pursuit of a solo career and we’re oh so happy she did. Seriously, who doesn’t love a good living room jam sesh to “Hollaback Girl?” Since then, she has made an appearance on a few seasons of the reality singing competition, The Voice. And because of fellow judge Adam Levine’s departure, NBC made a recent announcement that Stefani will assume his role as a coach in the upcoming season 17. 18. Jennifer Grey: 59 An icon of classic 1980s cinema, Jennifer Grey landed her first big screen role in the 1984 drama, The Cotton Club. And her fame only skyrocketed from there, as she then appeared in the 1986 drama, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Great American Films Limited Partnership/Vestron Pictures/Instagram/@jennifer_grey But perhaps her most well-known role was as Frances “Baby” Houseman in the 1987 hit romance drama, Dirty Dancing. The film sure showcased her dance moves, so it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that the actress took home a win on Dancing with the Stars in 2010 alongside her professional partner, Derek Hough. Having turned 59 in March of 2019, Grey has shown us she’s clearly still got it. It must be all that dancing that keeps her young. 19. Raquel Welch: 78 Chances are high that Raquel Welch was your grandfather or father – or maybe even brother’s – first celebrity crush. Considered by many to be the biggest bombshell of the ’60s and ’70s, auburn-maned Welch was said to have assumed the role of Marilyn Monroe following the icon’s passing in 1962. Warner Bros. via IMDB/Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic Welch first caught the attention of the public following her 1966 role in the sci-fi flick, Fantastic Voyage. In the same year, she made an appearance in One Million Years B.C. and despite only having three lines in the entire movie, she catapulted to fame. At 78, the actress is managing her own beauty line and continuing to dabble her feet in the Hollywood limelight. In 2017, she appeared in the TV comedy series, Date My Dad and in the film, How to Be a Latin Lover. 20. Barbi Benton: 69 After accepting a job at Hugh Hefner’s infamous Playboy magazine when she was only 18 years old, Barbi Benton set out on a career that would prove to have great longevity. Her career wasn’t limited to modeling, however, as the former bunny also tried her hand at becoming a successful actress, comedian, and singer in the 1970s. Donaldson Collection/Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images/Frank Trapper/Corbis via Getty Image Hanging up her bunny ears for a shot at something else, Benton appeared in a number of popular TV series throughout the ’70s and ’80s such as Sugar Time!, The Love Boat, and Fantasy Island. She also made debuts on the big screen and even launched a career as a recording artist. In total, Benton released eight albums where she wrote every song and played the piano. At 69, she has been married to husband, George Gradow for 40 years and is the mother of their two children. 21. Katie Couric: 62 As arguably one of the best-known personalities in the TV news business, Katie Couric has a long history of impressive success as a broadcast journalist. In 2002, Couric signed a $65 million contract with NBC, which allowed her to remain a co-host of its Today show but still explore other opportunities at the network. Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images/Instagram/@katiecouric This deal turned Couric into the highest paid journalist in the world at that point, but her moves at making history didn’t stop there. After 15 years of working on the Today show, Couric signed a deal with CBS in 2006 to become the first woman to solo anchor their Evening News program. In 2012, she started as the host of ABC’s Katie talk show, and since 2014, she has worked as a news anchor at Yahoo. Who else can say they’ve achieved this much by 62? *Cricket, cricket* 22. Bo Derek: 62 Who doesn’t love a good rom-com? Perhaps most recognized for her breakthrough role in the 1979 romantic comedy, 10, Bo Derek transformed from the girl next door to a Hollywood “it” girl almost overnight. In fact, she accredits her success to this very film. Geoffrey Productions/Orion Pictures/Paul Archuleta/FilmMagic Quoted saying, “I had no career before 10 and then all of a sudden I was able to do pretty much whatever I was able to do in the business,” Derek went on to star in Bolero, Ghosts Can’t Do It, and Tommy Boy. At 62, she is now dating Sex and the City actor John Corbett, is involved with a number of different charities, and is the proud owner of Bo Derek Pet Care. Go girl! 23. Angela Basset: 60 American activist and actress, Angela Basset, began her career in the entertainment industry back in the 1980s after receiving a bachelor of arts degree from Yale University and master of fine arts degree from the same university’s School of Drama. Ron Galella/Ron Galella Collection via Getty Images/Instagramemail@example.com Within the industry, she is said to be most known for her work in biographical films, such as in the 1993 musical drama, What’s Love Got to Do With It, for which she played musical icon Tina Turner. Her performance earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress and helped her actually take home a Golden Globe for Best Actress. 24. Lucy Liu: 50 Charlie’s Angel, Lucy Liu got her first big break in television from the hit comedy series, Ally McBeal, for which she received an Emmy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1999. Since then, the actress has made the move into directing and producing. Michael Crabtree/PA Images/PA Images via Getty Images/Amy Sussman via Getty Images The multi-talented Liu is now wrapping up her seven season run on the CBS crime drama, Elementary, in which she plays Dr. Joan Watson. She is also starring in the new TV series, Why Women Kill, which she is also directing. But perhaps even more exciting is that on May 1, 2019, Liu celebrated all her accomplishments with a new star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, which she called “a huge dream come true.” 25. Leslie Jones: 51 Fierce female comedian, Leslie Jones, skyrocketed to fame after joining the cast of Saturday Night Live in 2014. Since then, she seems to have been pretty much everywhere, and given her ability to make a crowd belly laugh, we’re all for it. HBO via IMDB/Instagram/@lesdogggg Prior to landing her big screen role in the all-women reboot of Ghostbusters, which she starred in alongside Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, Jones made a small appearance in Amy Schumer’s comedy film, Trainwreck. She was also seen at Rio’s Summer Olympic Games where she served as an impromptu commentator and even showed up in a few Allstate Insurance commercials.
