For some actors and actresses in Hollywood, the phrase, “aging gracefully,” isn’t something out of a movie script. Good genes, healthy lifestyles, and active fitness routines have kept a bevy of women over 40 looking as stunning as they were when they were in their twenties.
Here are three women over 40, whose faces and bodies are to die for:
One word can only be used to describe her: Gorgeous. As if she isn’t already the pinnacle of beauty, Halle Berry continues to stun everyone with her grace, talent, and poise as she ages. The actress credits being diagnosed with Type 2 for her amazing looks. In a past issue of Vogue, the 45-year-old, said, “I do not love to work out. But if I stick to exercising every day and put the right things in my mouth, then my diabetes just stays in check.”
Cast member of Vh1’s Hollywood Exes, 43-year-old Nicole Murphy has the body of a model who’s just beginning her career. Except she’s already had 5 kids, recently started a jewelry line, and has abs to die for!
Jada Pinkett-Smith is not only a wife to movie star Will Smith and a supermom to her talented children, Jaden and Willow Smith, but she stays fit and trim, with a healthy diet and regular workout regimen. In recent article in ESSENCE, Jada gave the credit for her bangin’ body to her grandmother, who she said instilled a sense of dietary discipline.
“If I could have French Fries and pizza every day I would really live off that. My real diet though, well, I don’t eat for pleasure. I probably had the only West Indian grandmother that could not cook. [Laughs] She was an awful cook, and she taught me that you don’t eat for taste, you eat for nourishment. And I have kept that over the years, so I can eat anything that’s healthy. I eat for my schedule so I have to eat high-protein, lots of greens and healthy carbs so that I don’t fall flat on my face.”
