Beautiful Women Over 40 - Part 3

Updated on May 17, 2017

Beautiful Women Over 40 - Monica Bellucci, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis and more.

Here is my third article featuring beautiful women that have passed the forty year mark in their lives.
I have to admit, I think this article has some of the loveliest ladies so far.
Including some of my own personal favorites.
And the world is better represented this time, with actresses from Italy, Wales, England and of course the USA.
They say that 40 is the new 20.
And these ladies prove it.

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman - Beautiful Women Over 40

Nicole Kidman was born on June 20th, 1967 in Honolulu, Hawaii, but her career actually started in Australia.
Her breakout role came in the 1989 thriller Dead Calm, and was followed by films like Days of Thunder, Billy Bathgate and To Die For , just to name a few.
Of course she is also known for being married to Tom Cruise from 1990 to 2001.
Now she is married to country singer Keith Urban.

Monica Bellucci

Monica Bellucci - Beautiful Women Over 40

Here is a woman that I have always thought was drop dead gorgeous, and time is doing nothing to lessen that beauty.
Monica Bellucci was born on September 30,1964 in Città di Castello, Umbria, Italy.
I think I first noticed her in the 2001 film Brotherhood of the Wolf (which I loved) and then in The Matrix Reloaded as Persephone.
As of 2015, she has appeared in well over 60 films.

Catherine Zeta-Jones

When I saw her in The Mask of Zorro , I thought that Catherine Zeta Jones was one of the (if not the) most beautiful women in the world.
She was simply breath-taking.
Catherine was born on September 25th, 1969 in Swansea, Wales, UK.
She has appeared in over twenty films, and really got respect for her role as Velma Kelly in the 2002 film Chicago .
For that role she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress and won and was nominated for a whole slew of other awards.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis - Beautiful Women Over 40

Of course I had Jamie Lee Curtis on one of my Scream Queen Hubs, but this lady is here because she has decided to age naturally.
It puts a lot of people off to see a lady that was once widely regarded as a sex symbol with grey hair, but Jamie (or Lady Haden-Guest, yes, she is a real Lady) looks like she is going with, instead of against the sands of time.
This actress, author and inventor (she holds at least one patent on an invention) has appeared in over sixty films starting with John Carpenter's Halloween in 1978.
She was born on November 22nd, 1958 in Los Angeles, California.

Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren is the embodiment of class and beauty.
She was born on July 26th, 1945 in Hammersmith, England.
During her career she has won an Academy Award, four SAG Awards, four BAFTAs, three Golden Globes, four Emmy Awards and was invested as a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) on December 5th, 2003.
So far she has appeared in over 100 films.
If you doubt Helen at all, Google the red bikini pic of her a couple of years ago.
I think she was 63 then.

Jane Seymour

Bond girl Solitaire and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman Jane Seymour was born on February 15th, 1951 in Hayes, Middlesex, England.
Besides being an actress and an author (she's written eight books) Jane was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II, in 2000.
She has appeared in almost 100 films, starting with an uncredited role as a Chorus Girl in the 1969 musical, Oh! What a Lovely War.

Teri Hatcher

Teri Hatcher - Beautiful Women Over 40

Teri Hatcher is another actress known for a nighttime soap, Desperate Housewives.
But I first remember her as Lois Lane on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1993-1997).
Remember the pic of Terri wrapped in Superman's cape?
That pic was downloaded over 20,000 times in 1995.
Teri was born on December 8th, 1964 in Palo Alto, California.

Mariska Hargitay

Mariska Hargitay - Beautiful Women Over 40
Mariska Hargitay - Beautiful Women Over 40

Born on January 23rd, 1964 in Santa Monica, California, actress Mariska Hargitay really has genetics going for her.
She is the daughter of professional bodybuilder and Mr. Universe of 1955, Mickey Hargitay and one of the blonde sex symbols of the 1950s, Jayne Mansfield.
Tragically, Mariska was asleep in the backseat of the car during the accident that claimed her mother's life.
Mariska has appeared on a lot of TV shows, but she is probably best known as Detective Olivia Benson on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Although she has been panned and praised for her role, Mariska has won two Gracie Awards, an Emmy, a Prism Award and a Golden Globe for her portrayal, so someone likes her.
Her acting debut was in the 1985 horror-comedy, Ghoulies.

Kim Cattrall

Kim Cattrall - Beautiful Women Over 40
Kim Cattrall - Beautiful Women Over 40

Kim Cattrall was born on August 21st, 1956 in Mossley Hill, Liverpool, England, UK.
Although most of you know her from her role as Samantha Jones on Sex and the City, she first caught my attention back in 1984 in Police Academy and after that in the awesome Big Trouble in Little China (1986) with Kurt Russell.
During her career, Kim has appeared in almost ninety films.

Kate Walsh

Kate Walsh who plays Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC dramas Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice was born on October 13th, 1967 in San Jose, California, U.S.
She started her career as a model in Japan, then came back to the US and appeared in Off-Broadway plays, then moved to television, films and theater.
Besides her role as Addison Montgomery, I think her most long lived appearance was as Nicki Fifer on The Drew Carey Show from 1997 to 2001.

Elizabeth Hurley

English actress Elizabeth Jane "Liz" Hurley was born on June 10th, 1965 in Basingstoke, Hampshire, England.
She started acting when she was 22 and didn't get her first modelling job until the age of 29.
Liz has appeared in over twenty films and eighteen TV series, the latest being her role as Queen Helena in "The Royals".

Christie Brinkley

Model and actress Christie Brinkley was born Christie Lee Hudson on February 2nd, 1954 in Monroe, Michigan.
For over two decades she was the face of CoverGirl and has appeared on the covers of five hundred magazines and inside magazines like Allure, Playboy, and Men's Health.
She is one of the richest models in the world with a net worth well over 80 million.
Christie has three children, Alexa Ray Joel, Jack Paris Taubman and Sailor Lee Brinkley Cook.

    Monica Bellucci, Jane Seymour and Catherine Zeta-Jones are my favorites on this list, but I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the Lois Lane of the 90's, Teri Hatcher. A fine collection of talented and truly gorgeous women (oh, yes, and as you pointed out, kudos to Jamie Lee Curtis for deciding to "age" naturally.)

    I was glad to see you include Helen Mirren on the list. She is a great example of a woman who although older is still beautiful, sexy and classy.

    My husband loves Teri and Catherine. He doesn't like what he calls "little girls". He likes women who look like WOMEN. So he would LOVE LOVE LOVE this list. I am nearly 51 and I think I'm doing okay ...until I see these women! LOL

    This tribute is amazing - I love it. The first woman looks like she's in her twenties! However, if plastic surgery/botox is involved, I'm far less impressed (not mentioning any names here)! My favorite is Kim Catrall. She was always the funniest on Sex and the City, and I LOVED her character's confidence and the way she pulled that off. Confidence is sexy at any age!

Jamie Lee will always be my fave, I laughed at her in True Lies opposite Arnie , and again in A Fish called Wanda opposite John Cleese. A True Lady!
