Best looking older actresses?

I have to admit that I continue to be amazed by the awesomeness of Monica Bellucci, and I wonder if she's just an anamoly or is it more common that I realize that "older" actresses look that good. I undertand that older is a relative term, but in an industry focused on youth, it's not easy for older actresses in general. Who would you all consider as the best looking older actresses?

Is there an age cut-off for what's considered "older"?

Susan Sarandon looks fantastic for 60-something.

25. That's when you stop getting the "hot chick" roles and start getting the "older sister" roles.

At 30, you start getting the "mother" roles.

At 40, you start getting the "grandma" roles.

She's not an actress, but Mary Hart looks good!

Yup and I would add Diane Keaton to the list, maybe it is the makeup commercials she is in but she has really looked good recently.

I absolutely adore Emmanuelle Devos since first seeing her in Read My Lips (2001) and Esther Kahn (2000)



She's 44.

Devos was also great in 'Kings & Queen' and an all too brief role in 'A Christmas Tale'

What's the definition of "older"? Over 50?

If so, I've got a crush on Dana Delany.

I think Shohreh Aghdashloo looks fantastic for a 50 something. (56 now, but it is more in reference to House of Sand and Fog period which was 5 years ago).

I'd leave it up you, but if I'm forced to make a hard cut-off, let's say 40. That's old for Hollywood years

By the same token, Brooke Burke has done a few bit parts but definitely smokin' for a mother of three nearing 40.

Twenty posts and not one mention for Catherine the great? Best looking older woman. Just beautiful. Pictured here with her daughter.
