Updated on May 3, 2018

The Most Beautiful Women Over 40

Here are a lot of women that are beautiful and popular that are over the age of 40.
And don’t even bother telling me that it's because of plastic surgery, implants, voodoo, or virgin sacrifice... because I ain't listening!

So here are some of the beautiful and talented women in Hollywood with staying power.

Starting with a lady that is over 65 years old...

1. Susan Lucci

I just like Lauren Graham. She seems like she would be a blast to hang out with.
Lauren was born on March 16th, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She made her acting debut in the 1997 horror-thriller Nightwatch but rose to fame in the Gilmore Girls television series from 2000 to 2007.

By the way, Gilmore Girls will return on Netflix as a limited series.There will be four 90-minute episodes written by the series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and the executive producer of the show, Daniel Palladino.

7. Michelle Pfeiffer

She made her acting debut back in 1978 on the TV show Fantasy Island and got her big screen break in the 1980 film Hollywood Knights with Tony Danza. Of course, that lead to roles in Scarface, The Witches of Eastwick, The Fabulous Baker Boys, and (you know I had to mention this) Catwoman in Batman Returns.

8. Meg Ryan

9. Halle Berry

She made her acting debut on the Mexican telenovela Teresa (1989) at the age of 23 and has gone on to appear in films like Desperado, Frida, and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.

13. Naomi Watts

British actress and film producer Naomi Watts was born on September 28th,1968 in Shoreham, Kent, England. Her first movie was the Australian drama For Love Alone. Although she has appeared in over 70 films and TV shows (including Children of the Corn IV: The Gathering), I will always remember her for David Lynch's Mulholland Dr.
That movie still freaks me out.

Of course, everyone remembers her from My Cousin Vinny (1992).

Marisa has also won and been nominated for several Academy Awards. And now, a whole new generation gets to see her as Aunt May Parker in the Marvel movies.
By the way, did you know that she once dated Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man)?

15. Maggie Corso

    I have just verified Susan Sarandon's age and it's true. She is a bubbly, lithe and appears happy being 70. As an adolescent the three movie stars i liked the most were all in their 40's at the time, namely Elizabeth Taylor, Anita Ekberg and Sophia Loren. Elizabeth Taylor then was 'billed' as the most beautiful woman in the world. Anita Ekberg as Anita Iceberg for her 'cool' Nordic looks. Sophia Loren is still 'going strong at 82.

    Hallie Berry isn't black?

    Also I guess you missed Vanessa Williams,Stacey Dash, and Janet Jackson on my other plus 40 Hubs.

    Not to mention the two Hubs I did on beautiful black women.

    I guess that subliminal message isn't very clear.

    I notice you didn't have any black women and there are an abundance of black women in their 50's plus that are drop dead gorgeous. I guess this subliminal message is clear smh.

    Michelle Pfeiffer is extremely beatiful. She has an extraordinary look. She's very appealing and she has a lot of charisma. Michelle is truly one of the most beautiful women of all time. Michelle's beauty is classical and everlating.

    Lauren Graham looks amazing for her age. I remember seeing her in gilmore girls and was astonished. She also seems 10 years younger or more.

    Thank you for these portraits of stunning women, I have been browsing through pages of articles claiming that a woman over 31 has reached her 'peek' and a woman over 40 is old and does not have to worry about being sexy anymore, far from that! , your photos prove how much more refined, aware of her own body and her own self and definitely sexy a woman this age can be, I like my body, more so now than when I was 20, and 31 was a very boring age to me wrapped up in being a mom transporting kids around, nah,, a real man knows how to handle and appreciate a real grown woman

    All of these women are gorgeous and should be celebrated, not only for their beauty, but for their stregnth. When I think of women I am inspired by these are the names that cross my mind. Great Job!

    Cindy Crawford, Salma Hayek, etc--these women don't FEEL over 40. 40 is the new 30 in Hollywood. You could have easily made this hub about women over 50. I have a weakness for older women. I'd sacrifice a goat on the altar of Baal for a night with Kim Basinger. Alright, I'd better get out of here before I reveal too much.

    Good work! Byeee

    Still settling in here, but hopefully I'll me able to get into a groove with the Hubs soon.

    And Mike, I may not be finished with this series yet...LOL

    Voted up and--what else? Beautiful. I always thought Susan Sarandon was beautiful, and who doesn't like Meg Ryan at any age? Daisy Fuentes is very sexy to me because she is not too thin. Not on your list, the geek in me is attracted to Gillian Anderson of X-Files fame. I just thought she continued to become more beautiful with age.

    Nice article, Sabre, and nice to see you back.

    Great list! I think Cindy Crawford is the definition of beauty, and she looks exactly the same as she did 20 years ago.
