Helen Mirren

Actress Helen Mirren just topped the “Body of the Year” poll in Britain at the age of 66. She beat out such competitors as Jennifer Lopez and Pippa Middleton to claim the top spot. This probably came as no surprise to her husband, Taylor Hackford. Last year, when Hackford saw recently published nude photos of his wife, the film director said, “She told me she did a photo session, and of course I didn’t know what to expect. But, you know, that’s my wife. She’s bold and beautiful.”

Sophia Loren

Italian movie legend Sophia Loren still looks great at the age of 76. The actress is perhaps as famous for her hourglass figure as for her acting accomplishments—she was the first person to win an acting Oscar for a foreign-language film. Tom Hanks called her “timeless, beautiful, and authentically real.” And actress Eva Mendes said, “Sometimes she looks like she’s from another planet because she is so beautiful.”

Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda is 73, but she certainly does not look it. The actress has starred in countless films, won two Academy Awards, and been married three times. But she probably can credit her good health and youthful appearance to her famous workouts. Fonda has released 24 fitness videos since 1982, most recently in 2010. At the time, she said, “I'm very excited to be back in the fitness business. I know from experience and from my research how critical it is for seniors to be physically active. Even if they've never exercised in their lives, now's the time, and my programs are a good, safe way to do it.”

Susan Sarandon

Actress Susan Sarandon is 64, and wouldn't trade it. She recently said, “I wouldn’t want to be 20 now. I know so much more, and I’m much more comfortable in my skin, saggy as it is.”

Lauren Hutton

Lauren Hutton rose to fame as a model and later as an actress. During her career, she graced the cover of Vogue more than 20 times. She became the face of Revlon in 1974, though that company fired her when she was 40. Now 67, Hutton continues to turn heads. In 2005, when she was 61, Hutton posed nude for a magazine. These were the first nude pictures of her published during her career. At the time, Hutton explained, "I want them [women] not to be ashamed of who they are when they're in bed. Society has told us to be ashamed."

Julie Christie

Julie Christie, 70, is probably most famous for her role as Lara in Doctor Zhivago, along with her three Oscar nominations, including the Best Actress award for Darling.  Actress Naomi Watts once said of Christie, “Julie Christie was always in the latest, sexiest styles. It’s the kind of Hollywood sophistication that takes hours to achieve, but she made it look easy.” Sarah Polley, who directed Christie in Away from Her said, "Julie is captivating, magnetic and stunningly beautiful. She's full of life, wonder and curiosity. It's impossible not to fall in love with her."

Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch became a 1960s sex symbol after appearing in One Million Years B.C. Welch went on to launch a multimillion-dollar line of wigs, and wrote a memoir. Now 70, she looks and says she feels better than ever. She says that women need to be more comfortable with aging: “I want them to stop being scared of it, because it's just another chapter in life. It's not time for you to give up. You don't need to repeat what you did already. Don't keep comparing yourself." She also believes that taking care of your body as you age is essential. “Sitting around doing nothing is far from the best option. Just as you maintain your home, your car, your garden, you should look after your greatest gift: your body."

Catherine Deneuve

Catherine Deneuve, 67, has appeared in more than 100 films. Now, a few years away from 70, she still looks almost flawless. She has not had any plastic surgery, she says: “I haven’t had the time. If you want an explanation, you would have to meet my mother. She is 98. It’s genetic.”

Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep is an accomplished actress who has been nominated for more Academy Awards than anyone, starting with a nod for 1978’s The Deer Hunter. Now 62, Streep says, “You have to embrace getting older.” She also has said, “I didn’t have any confidence in my beauty when I was young. I felt like a character actress, and I still do.”

Tina Turner

Singer Tina Turner, 71, is famous for such hits as “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” In early 2011, already in her 70s, Turner was voted the celebrity with the sexiest legs, beating out Jennifer Aniston and Beyoncé. When asked how she felt about aging, Turner replied, “That number doesn’t mean a thing. It just doesn’t.”

Goldie Hawn

Goldie Hawn is 65, and her career shows no sign of slowing down. She recently wrote, directed, and starred in the film Ashes to Ashes. She does not appear to be getting less beautiful as she ages, either. And she seems to have a very healthy attitude about aging. Hawn recently said, "Getting older is natural. We have to face the fact that jobs are going to stop. You're not going to be a Hollywood beauty forever. You're not going to be the sex symbol. These things are going to change."

At the time of her appearance, she was the oldest female contestant to compete on the show. Seymour’s husband attributed the secret to her success at her age as “genes and attitude.”
