Like a fine wine, some women just get better with age. We’ve compiled a list of the hottest women over 40 who still give their younger counterparts a run for their money.

10. Elle MacPherson, 44.

8. Pamela Anderson, 41.

6. Elizabeth Hurley, 43.

More famous for dating Hugh Grant and wearing THAT dress. Just make sure you don’t watch her movies or it might detract from this foxy English rose. Married to Arun Nayar, still.

5. Sharon Stone, 50.

Actress that has showed more than most. Basic Instinct being the film that made her an A-List celebrity, not forgetting the scene with the uncrossing of legs. Has hinted a being bisexual on many occasions, is now divorced and single.

2. Halle Berry, 42.

Been gracing our screens in a wide range of movies, a firm favourite and too many sexy roles to mention here, apart from maybe that Bond scene on the beach. Married twice, divorced twice, now happy with a guy ten years her junior and the father of her child. Said to be happy and planning a second child.

1. Monica Belucci, 44.

Many films in many languages, was in two of the Matrix films, recently said “I love the idea that when a man pays to see one of my films, he’s paying me to feel pleasure. That’s good enough for us to get her to the number 1 spot. She is married.

Did we miss anyone in your opinion?? If so, let us know in the comments.


“We guarantee you’ll find someone special within 6 months. Don’t wait. Make Love Happen now! “


  1. Im not saying she deserves to even be on a top 10 list but I think Michelle Yeoh (46) is sexier than Pam Anderson (I just dont like women who have had too much “work”.)

    + she has that “can kick my ass” thing going for her too.

  2. That’s hot.

  3. Why don’t you put pictures of what they look like today and not from 20 years ago.

  4. You should go outside of Hollywood and check out either Gong Li or Maggie Cheung. Both over 40. Both still timeless beauties.

  5. Cannot disagree with anyone’s choices. What’s great is that everyone has come up with so many. Imagine what would have to look forward to if we had barely been able to come up with ten, let alone close to triple that just in this discussion.

    One not mentioned: Dana Delaney – I have stood on China Beach (not much there now) and can’t imagine what her character would have done to soldiers getting some R&R before heading back to hell.

  6. To see Monica Belluci is proof that God exists.

  7. I agree!

  8. Twain and Moore are past it, sorry

  9. You forgot – and nobody missed – Sigourney Weaver?? This world must be going to end soon …

  10. Good eye. Now to wipe the fog off my monitor.

  11. Ditto Diane Lane. Big fat No on Pam Anderson – WTF with that?

  12. yes
    yes ~

  13. Jennifer Tilly

  14. I reeally like halle berry..she hot….ermmm

  15. Your right Elizabeth Hurley, 43 very sweet, and
    Teri Hatcher, 43 still looks very young.
    Kim Cattrall, 52 – Wow shes hot!
    thanks from tony

  16. dianne lane is way hotter than most of the others. pam anderson is a hideous skank the further away she is the better she looks

  17. I think in the future we will see more. Aided by modern medicine, lots of today’s teenagers will still look gorgeous at 50

  19. Damn….Monica Belucci !!!!

  20. What about Sela Ward? I think she is still hot.

  21. Its good to see Monica Belucci at the top, she deserve it..!!!

    The kind of promising acting she do even at the age of 44 , no one can take over her crown..!!

    Very nice article Though some of the great actress name are missing i will save them for my next post..:)

  22. This list isn’t complete without Gina Gershon… not by far!

  23. When you get to the list of the top sexiest women over 50 you should include Amparo Grisales:

  24. I’ve seen about 14 names on this list (especially Salma Hayek, Mary Louise Parker and Diane Lane) that could easily replace Pamela Anderson. Over-indulgence in botox and plastic surgery rules out being considered sexy, unless the list is measuring porn stars. In that case, yes… Pamela Anderson is about #9 on the hottest porn stars over 40.

  25. Pam Anderson is a diseased old whore. If you want a Playmate that’s aged well and has her stuff together, how ’bout Shannon Tweed?

  26. How could forget Stacy Dash, obviously you didn’t see her Playboy spread.

  27. 63-year old Helen Mirren!

  28. monica : )

  29. Jennifer Tilly

  30. Jane Seymour

  31. I totally agree! Angela is so hot AND so cool!

  32. Where is Madonna?

  33. Good article, and congrats for putting Belucci on the first place ;)

    On thing thou.. i think Pfeiffer will deserve the second place.

  34. that’s not halle berry, its that beckham broad

    btw/ most of these women remind me of limburger cheese

  35. that’s not halle berry, it’s that beckham broad

    btw/ these women remind me of limburger cheese

  36. No Ellen Barkin, Julia Louise-Dreyfuss? I would have even been happy with Sofia Loren.

  37. And there is absolutley no mention of Susan Sarandon..!!!!

  38. Imagine what this list would look like without plastic surgery and Photoshop.

  39. Julianne Moore is the most beautiful woman alive of ANY age…

  40. Elizabeth Hurley all the way, still looks absolutely stunning, but I gotta agree with some of the other guys here, Salma Hayek needs to be here. Oh and Sarah Palin should be there, it needed to be said!

  41. DEMI MOORE(46) FTW!! lolz

  42. Rene Russo should be included on that list.

  43. any pictures that aren’t airbrushed so badly that they’re not related to reality at all?

  44. I don’t know what list to put her in but, Mamie Van Doren at 77 is kinda sexy.

  45. Actually, Monica Belluci is 39. Minor detail. Still #1.

  46. i agree.and i think the women are good in up 40 until 50

  47. yup

  48. Minor detail: you’re terrible at math.

    Monica Bellucci is 44 years old, as of September 30th of this year.

  49. Belucci and MacPherson FTW

  50. Kate Walsh seconded. Totally gorgeous woman, red hair, long legs, great smile, very funny. And I see the comparisons to Catherine Deneuve, who she is often compared to.
