If you think that the only hot chicks are barely legal, you're about to have a rude awakening. Dig this gallery of foxy femmes over forty.
Gina Gershon maybe peaked in Bound, but what a peak. She also ruled as the dry cleaning lady that Larry David wanted to bone on Curb Your Enthusiasm, but that just made me think about Larry David getting his swerve on which isn't a very auspicious way to get this list rocking.
Halle Berry has kept her looks so platinum it's amazing. She literally doesn't look like she's aged a day since showing the goods in Swordfish. How do you think she does it? I hope it's not Satanism.
Do you remember when Elizabeth Hurley had that kid and it was like a giant baby? Think about it like this: if you had the option to breastfeed on her perfect rack, you'd do it as much as possible, right?
Private Practice's Kate Walsh is one of the hottest redheads in the business today, and she's keeping her good looks remarkably well. Not that I watch that show or anything, because I am a man.
Once touched by the hand (and wang) of Sheen, women are never the same. Thankfully, the lovely Denise Richards has managed to keep looking fresh despite her travails and popping out a couple of kids.
Okay, Lucy Liu was in Ballistic: Ecks Vs. Sever, which might be the worst movie I ever watched on a bus, but she's still looking mighty fine despite being on the north side of 40. Hope she's in the upcoming Kung Fu Panda sequel.
Even at 57, Ellen Barkin still has a tighter body than women half her age. The actress first broke out in 1982's Diner and continues to work her ass off to this day, despite being rich as hell from her divorce settlement from multimillionaire ex Ronald Perelman.
Now that Courteney Cox is free from the hideous taint that is David Arquette, maybe her career will rebound to at least a fraction of Friends level. The new Scream movie didn't help much, but she still looks great.
It's interesting that a lot of these well-preserved women are brunettes - do blondes just age more harshly? It's a mystery science should figure out. Demi Moore seemingly hasn't aged a day since hooking up with boy-toy Ashton Kutcher, if you believe the Twitter candids.
Former No Doubt frontwoman Gwen Stefani is a mother of two, a fashion impresario, and generally just a hot slice of womanhood with a set of spectacular gams. Who would have thunk it?
Can you imagine how crazy Naomi Watts's home life was growing up? Her dad was Pink Floyd's road manager, for God's sake. There were probably all kinds of shenanigans afoot. And yet, she grew up to be a remarkably beautiful and even-tempered woman.
There seems to be a misconception that Latina women age poorly once they hit a certain threshold, but Salma Hayek is single-handedly disproving this theory. I'm sure she'll look great for all eternity.
Country songstress Shania Twain is holding up remarkably well - I think the clean-living Nashville lifestyle is probably better for your body than, say, Courtney Love's. Don't worry, I promise not to show you any pictures of Courtney Love.
Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker not only has an absolutely smoking body, but she's not shy about it. Remember last season's insane sex scene where she got heavily worked over by Mark-Paul Gosselar? I sure do.
The cool thing about a lady who's had a little life experience is that she's not fooled by "bad boys" and other douchebags. Or at least we can hope that's true in the case of Sandra Bullock, who just got burned by a guy who managed to make worse adultery choices than Tiger Woods.
Even though we're still a few decades out from her X-Files heyday, Gillian Anderson is still a very smoking piece of womanhood. She's set to star in an upcoming period zombie flick with Judi Dench, which should own.
As Sara Sidle on CSI, Jorja Fox has been illuminating our TV screens for over a decade. The Canadian-born actress has a refreshing vivacity that doesn't seem to be dissipating with age.
Some ladies just get hotter and hotter as they age. Marisa Tomei is a great example - sure, she was cute as a button in My Cousin Vinny, but her smoking sexuality really started to emerge as she matured. And we're all the better for it.
I'm kind of done feeling sorry for Jennifer Aniston - sure, she's about as unlucky in love as just about anybody in Hollywood, but she's still smoking hot and as rich as the day is long.
It takes a certain kind of woman to stay married to Nicolas Sarkozy, but the gorgeous French-Italian songwriter and model Carla Bruni is a certain kind of woman. The gorgeous Bruni is preparing another album, as well as a baby in her belly.
How shocking is it that Buffy co-star Charisma Carpenter is 40? You would never guess it by looking at her, which is I guess the point. The actress, last seen in The Expendables, is a hardcore fitness buff, which should explain her fantastic body.
The smokin' Famke Janssen won nerd hearts by perfectly playing Jean Grey in the three X-Men flicks, but she has a very robust resume behind her, dating from her debut as a Bond girl with skull-crushing thighs.
Can you believe that Sela Ward is fifty-four years old? That's just ridiculous. I'm not sure what her methodology is for staying so young-looking into her second half-century, but if you could bottle it you'd be a millionaire.
The Welsh actress recently laid it all on the line to the press about her struggles with bipolar disorder, but having a crazy brain sure hasn't made Catherine Zeta-Jones any less hot. In fact, it might have made her hotter.
It is inconceivable to me that Monica Bellucci is forty-six years old. It's like she's a walking time paradox stuck in a gorgeous Italian broad's body. She's one of the rare actresses who finds success in both American and European productions.
Vanessa Williams has had quite an eventful life - the first African-American woman to be named Miss America, then forced to relenquish her crown after nude photos surfaced, she managed to carve a career out of the ashes, most recently in a great supporting role on Ugly Betty.
Army Wives star Catherine Bell has led an extremely varied life - she did everything from modeling to massaging before she started acting, and traveled around the world. She's also a Scientologist but I don't think they have any youthfulness preservation tech.
She was the Bride of Chucky, so she's gotta give us a chance, right? Jennifer Tilly still looks great, even though she's mostly abandoned acting to play poker competitively. She's won over a half a million at the table, so she must be doing something right.
