Sexiest women over 40

Updated on August 28, 2010

This is my list of the 10 sexiest or hottest women in Hollywood in no particular order. This is based on my opinion, so you might agree or disagree with some or all of them but remember it's my list so don't freak out.

Being sexy is not only looking stunning on the outside but also being confident in yourself and standing out from the rest. They say beauty is in the Eye of the beholder but i am sure we can agree on most of the women on this list that they truly redefine the 40 year benchmark, because of their style and ability to stand the taste of time. It's no surprise that Cougarism (a word i just made up) is a hot trend because these sexy ladies give 20 something year old girls a run for their money.

Halle Berry

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful black women, Halle berry seems to get better with age. Her sexy bikini body was the highlight of big movies like Die Another Day and swordfish. Catwoman didn't not do any justice to her career but i am sure most guys didn't mind looking at Halle Berry squeeze her sexy body in tight spandex.

      If you actually research these women you'll see that everyone on your list except Cindy has had their nose redone at the very least, even Diane Lane has a fake nose.
