Beautiful Women Over 40 - Part 2
More of the most beautiful women over 40
Here is my follow up to my last article about the most beautiful women in entertainment that are over 40.
The term "Over The Hill" has no meaning anymore as scientists really are saying that 40 is the new 30.
And these "mature" women are living proof.
This time we have several successful singers as well as actresses, a former Miss America and an iconic sex symbol.
Some of these women even have daughters that are getting into acting, and may become the next generation of beautiful women.
And one has been a spokes model for L'Oréal for twenty seven years.
At the moment, America's sweetheart Sandra Bullock is the tabloid's sweetheart as well, thanks to her relationship with motorcycle builder and Monster Garage host Jesse James.
But Sandra (born in Arlington, Virginia on July 26th, 1964) has survived bad relationships, car accidents and at least one stalker.
She'll survive this.

Canadian country pop singer and songwriter Shania Twain was born Eilleen Regina Edwards on August 28th,1965, in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
Shania has won five Grammy Awards and has the best-selling album of all time by a female musician, and the best selling country album of all time (Come On Over, 1997).
Considering her early life, this beautiful lady deserves her fame.
One of the stars of St. Elmo's Fire, Ghost, A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal, Disclosure and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, Demi Moore was born on November 11th, 1962 in the UFO capital of the world, Roswell, New Mexico.
Besides films, Demi is known for two Vanity Fair covers, and being Mrs. Ashton Kutcher.
Our second singer on this list is Faith Hill (born on September 21, 1967 in Ridgeland, Mississippi).
Faith is married to fellow country music star Tim McGraw, and has sold over 40 million records worldwide, had eight number-one singles and three number-one albums on the U.S. Country charts, and was one half of the highest grossing country tour of all time, the Soul2Soul II Tour 2006 with her husband.
Our third singer, songwriter and musician Sheryl Crow was born on February 11, 1962 in Kennett, Missouri.
Sheryl has sold over 35 million albums worldwide and performed duets with Sting, Eric Clapton, Michelle Branch and Michael Jackson among many others.
Courteney Cox-Arquette was born on June 15, 1964 in Birmingham, Alabama.
Courteney is best known for playing Monica Geller on the sitcom Friends, her roles in Scream, Scream 2, Scream 3 and she and her husband David Arquette will reprised their roles in Scream 4 (which I am very interested to see how Wes Craven pulls this off).
Right now though she is appearing on ABC's sitcom Cougar Town as Jules Cobb.
The first African-American woman to be crowned Miss America, Vanessa Williams was born on March 18, 1963 in Millwood, New York.
Vanessa lost that title in a scandal, but emerged later as a singing star (with over 15 Grammy Award nominations) and actress (with many award nominations including several NAACP Image Award wins and nominations).
Elizabeth Hurley was born on June 10th, 1965 in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England.
She made her acting debut in the "Glück das mir verblieb" segment of the 1987 British film, Aria.
Her last film was 2004's Method, but she'll be doing voice work in the 2010 film, The Wild Bunch in 2010.
She's probably best known for being at the center of the Hugh Grant scandal back in 1995.
Italian American stage, film and television actress Marisa Tomei was born on December 4, 1964 in Brooklyn, New York.
She has appeared in the films What Women Want (2000), Anger Management (2003), Wild Hogs (2007), Unhook the Stars (1996), Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007) and The Wrestler (2008).
Marisa won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Mona Lisa Vito in My Cousin Vinny (1992).
And did you know that one of her first roles was an uncredited part in the 1984 B-Movie Classic, The Toxic Avenger?
Marcia Cross was born on March 25th, 1962 in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
I have always liked Marcia, and thought she had a weird, almost ethereal vibe to her.
She made her acting debut back in 1984 on the soap opera The Edge of Night as Liz Correll.
But she is probably best known for her roles on two nighttime soaps....
Melrose Place (1992-1997) as Dr. Kimberly Shaw Mancini, and Desperate Housewives (2004) as Bree Hodge.
One small paragraph cannot do justice to Raquel Welch.
She was born on September 5, 1940 (yes she is almost 70) in Chicago, Illinois.
Raquel is such an icon, that she managed to remain a sex symbol throughout the 60s and 70s.
No small feat.
American model and actress Andie MacDowell was born on April 21, 1958 in Gaffney, South Carolina.
Andie started out as a model, and then moved into acting where she appeared in a little over forty films.
I really had no idea she was in that many movies.
Her debut was as "Jane" in the 1984 film, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes.
Diane Lane was born on January 22, 1965 in New York, New York.
She debuted in the 1979 film "A Little Romance", and was named by Time magazine as "the new Grace Kelly".
I have liked her since "Streets of Fire" when she was Ellen Aim.
I don't care if she did lip-synch.
And I like her so much that I can even overlook her being in "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" as Martha Kent.
From Who's the Boss? (1984) to Melrose Place (1997) to Charmed (1998), Alyssa Milano has been a part of modern TV history.
She was born on December 19th, 1972 in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, New York.
A lot of us watched her grow up and saw her appear in close to 70 TV shows and movies.
Alyssa has been involved in humanitarian and political causes, starting with Ryan White amd AIDS in the 80s, UNICEF, PETA and Charity:Water.
And also, the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship, The Milano is named after Alyssa.
