Celebrities Who Look Better with Age
Everyone grows older. It’s an inevitable part of life — even for the rich and famous. Some celebrities indulge in expensive plastic surgery to help them look younger, while others accept the process and choose to age gracefully, relying on a good skincare routine, exercise, dieting or just plain genetics.
Some celebrities do such a great job of taking care of themselves, you might be surprised to learn they are in their 50s, 60s or even older. Some have certainly aged better than others, including these 30 stars who almost seem to be aging in reverse. Jealous of their timeless looks? Let’s take a look!
Winona Ryder, 48
Winona Ryder was a Hollywood icon in the 1980s. She starred in some of America’s favorite spooky films, including Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands. In the 2000s, she took an extended break from Hollywood. Upon her comeback in the Netflix original series, Stranger Things, fans were shocked to see she still looks great at 48.
Paul Rudd, 50
You might find it hard to believe that Paul Rudd is actually 50 years old. Fans love to joke about his appearance on social media, commenting that he doesn’t look like he has aged much since starring in Clueless when he was just 26 years old. How could he possibly be 50?
Jennifer Aniston, 50
Jennifer Aniston looks like she hasn’t aged much since starring as Rachel Green on Friends. Now 50 years old, she still turns heads with her timeless, classic beauty. She doesn’t need plastic surgery. Her natural beauty is perfect.
Hugh Jackman, 51
Hugh Jackman perhaps learned how to stay young by playing Wolverine for close to 20 years. Now 51, he hasn’t aged much since he started playing the Marvel superhero in 2000. In fact, he seems to be aging in reverse, looking younger and younger as the years go by.
Lucy Liu, 51
You probably wouldn’t believe that Lucy Liu is 51 years old. She still looks the same as she did in 2000 when she starred in Charlie’s Angels. She now puts her killer looks to work starring in the CBS All Access series Why Women Kill.
Julia Roberts, 52
Julia Roberts will always be a "pretty woman." In fact, she doesn’t look like she has aged much since Pretty Woman premiered in 1990 shortly before and her other ‘90s hits: My Best Friend’s Wedding, Notting Hill and Runaway Bride. She has a natural beauty and has vowed to never resort to plastic surgery.
Halle Berry, 53
In 2003, Halle Berry was ranked No. 1 on People’s list of "50 Most Beautiful People in the World." As far as we’re concerned, she could still top the list in 2019. The 53-year-old actress hasn’t aged much over the past 20 years. What’s her secret? Diet and exercise.
Cindy Crawford, 53
Does Cindy Crawford look like she’s 53 years old to you? You’re not alone if your answer is no. The star hasn’t aged much since she was an international supermodel in the 1990s. She can still effortlessly wear a bikini or ballgown on the runway.
Sandra Bullock, 55
You might not believe this, but Sandra Bullock is 55 years old. No one can deny that she certainly looks much younger than her age. You would never guess her real number from her timeless, youthful appearance. To age gracefully without surgery, the actress uses an anti-aging cream.
Jon Bon Jovi, 57
You — or maybe your mother — probably had a crush on Jon Bon Jovi in the 1980s. As the lead singer of the superstar band Bon Jovi, he sang many huge hits, including "It’s My Life" and "Livin’ on a Prayer."
George Clooney, 58
George Clooney has made women swoon ever since he first starred on ER in 1994. His appearance hasn’t changed much in the past 25 years. He might have more gray hair now — although his hair was always prematurely gray — but the 58-year-old actor still looks fairly young.
Michelle Pfeiffer, 61
Michelle Pfeiffer has always been considered beautiful. Now 61 years old, she has chosen to age naturally, and she looks glamorous while doing so.

Daniel Day-Lewis, 62
Daniel Day-Lewis might have gray hair, but he still looks as charming and handsome as he did in the 1990s. Now 62 years old, the British actor is one of the most widely respected actors of his generation. People love him, and they especially love his classy appearance.
Bryan Cranston, 63
Bryan Cranston hasn’t aged much since he appeared as Dr. Tim Whatley in the hit sitcom Seinfeld. Perhaps he learned how to stay young while operating a meth lab as his character Walter White in the popular drama Breaking Bad. That had to be the trick, right?
Kevin Costner, 64
Like the other actors on this list, Kevin Costner’s appearance has stayed relatively the same since he starred in the 1990 drama Dances with Wolves. Yes, he has aged a little over the past 30 years, but his charming good looks have only gotten better with age.
Bruce Willis, 64
Bruce Willis might have a sixth sense for aging gracefully. The Die Hard and Sixth Sense star still looks the same as he did in the ‘80s and ‘90s — even with the addition of gray and balding hair. He’s your favorite tough guy who seems to always have a big heart.
Denzel Washington, 64
Denzel Washington hasn’t aged a day since the 1990s. He has always appeared more mature than his age, which might explain why his looks haven’t changed much as he has grown older. Now 64 years old, Washington looks like he could still play the same roles that earned him international fame in the ‘90s.
Dennis Quaid, 65
You might be thinking, "How in the world is Dennis Quaid 65 years old?" You’re not alone in your surprise. The actor still looks the same as he did when he starred as Nick Parker in the 1998 family film The Parent Trap. He won viewers’ hearts in that role, and he still does today.
Christie Brinkley, 65

Jane Seymour, 68

Sigourney Weaver might just be a real-life alien because she certainly doesn’t look like she’s 70 years old.

In fact, she has never had plastic surgery and looks amazing.
Meryl Streep, 70
There is simply no other actress like Meryl Streep. She dominates practically every film she appears in, and at age 70, she’s still one of the most beautiful stars of our era. The actress has reportedly never had plastic surgery, fully understanding the risks of what could go wrong.
Susan Sarandon, 73
Susan Sarandon is 73 years old, but she could easily pass for a woman in her 50s. She hasn’t aged much in the past 20 years, and her appearance hasn’t altered much since the 1980s. She said, "I keep thinking I’m younger, and I feel that inside!"
Diane Keaton, 73

Jane Fonda, 81
It shouldn’t be surprising that Jane Fonda has stayed fit and young over the years. Her workout book and videos — a combination of high-intensity aerobics paired with leotards and leg warmers — were a smash hit in the 1980s. The former fitness guru, now 81, has maintained her healthy lifestyle.
Robert Redford, 83
In the 1970s, Robert Redford was one of the dreamiest and most handsome actors in Hollywood.
