15 Celebrity Women Over 50 Who Are Still Sexier Than Ever

January 23rd, 2014 9:42pm EST
Christie Brinkley
59-year-old Christie Brinkley (she'll be 60 on Feb. 2) became a household name when she covered Sports Illustrated's illustrious Swimsuit Issue for three consecutive years (1979, 1980, 1981), and on January 14 she was spotted at the party celebrating the 50th anniversary of the annual issue looking better than most of the younger models.

But Christie isn't the only star over the age of 50 who still looks good. In fact, we'd probably have to say that 50 is the new 30 for these women, few of whom -- if any -- appear to have had any "work" done.

Actress Jane Seymour, 62, (she'll be 63 on Feb...

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names
Many celebrities have changed their names before they hit it big, and for many reasons. Let's take a look at some of the biggest stars who didn't take their birth name to Hollywood.

Katy Hudson didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson, so she took her mother's maiden name and became Katy Perry.

Oprah Winfrey's name is iconic, but it's not actually her real name. It's Orpha, after the biblical figure. However, so many people mispronounced her name while she was growing up that the mispronunciation stuck.

Barry Manilow was born Barry Alan Pincus. He took his mother's maiden name...

Jane Seymour
Jane Seymour has helped her sister make her acting debut after inadvertantly landing her sibling a role in new romantic comedy Austenland.

The British star reveals director Jerusha Hess caught sight of a photo of her younger sister before shooting began and thought she would be perfect to portray Seymour's head maid.

The 62 year old tells WENN, "(Hess) said, 'Oh, how wonderful it would be if your sister plays the head of the ugly maids!'"

But Seymour had no idea how comical her relative's part would be until she sat down to watch the finished product.

She says, "My sister, of course, is...

84th Annual Academy Awards - Red Carpet Fashion (See Pictures!)

February 27th, 2012 2:39am EST
Oscars 2012
The Academy Awards aren't just about the movies - they're about the fashion and what the stars wore on the red carpet at the year's biggest event.

This year, much like the ceremony itself, there were few surprises and all the stars looked fabulous on the red carpet outside the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Well, okay - Kristen Wiig's brown J. Mendel dress and Meryl Streep's gold Lanvin gown? Not so much.

This year's highlights include Angelina Jolie looking stunning - although also a bit thin - in a black Atelier Versace dress that's almost an exact match of the one Jennifer Aniston wore ...

2012 Grammy Awards Fashion: Some Wore Colors While Most Wore Black On A Bittersweet Evening

February 13th, 2012 12:54pm EST
2012 Grammy Awards
The 2012 Grammy Awards will forever be remembered for one reason: the event took place the night after the music industry lost one of their biggest stars in an untimely fashion: Whitney Houston.

Despite the somber undertones of host LL Cool J's opening prayer for the late singer and a rousing performance of her hit song "I Will Always Love You" by Jennifer Hudson; the night was about the music and the attitude that the show must go on.

As always with award shows, the night is also about the fashion. While many stars wore black - perhaps in honor of the late Houston - many stars let the c...

Shocked by the news of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mildred Patricia Baena's love child? Well, hold on to your hat because according to actress Jane Seymour, there are more skeletons in Arnold's closet poised to come out.

Could it be that Arnold Schwarzenegger has more illegitimate children? For Maria Shriver's sake, we hope not!

Perhaps the only person not surprised by Arnold's affair with one of his household staff is actress Jane Seymour. "I was not even remotely surprised," she told CNN during the red carpet premiere of Love Marriage Wedding on Tuesday night. "The moment I heard it, t...

Our Favorite TV Moms: A Mother's Day Special

Home Improvement
Let’s be honest: I doubt that any of the moms on this list are as awesome as your own mother (suffice it to say that none of them are as amazing as mine). But these women, these television moms, are certainly worthy of mention. You may have grown up with some of them or you may have watched them last week, but one thing’s for sure: they’re moms, and they’re pretty terrific. So, in honor of Mother’s Day (and in no particular order) I present our favorite TV moms.

'Love, Wedding, Marriage' Just Another Summer Rom-Com

April 20th, 2011 1:21pm EDT
Love Wedding Marriage
What’s with all these three word noun-adjective-combo movie titles? This time it’s “Love, Wedding, Marriage” and, big surprise, this romantic dramedy’s (light on the drama side) got all of it.

Mandy Moore plays Eva, a marriage counselor who’s dedicated to saving the failed relationships of her clients. But when her own parents become her patients, she’s thrown out of the fairy tale fantasy of the life she knows and into the harsh reality that love and marriage doesn’t come without its struggles. As she desperately tries to salvage her parents’ marriage, she is forced to put her own on the ...

'Castle' Recap: 2x18 - 'One Life To Lose' (Lovingly) Mocks Soap Operas

March 23rd, 2011 7:21am EDT
jane seymour
The most exciting part of “One Life to Lose” was that Jane Seymour (or as she was referred to in my house while I was growing up, Dr. Quinn) guest starred. The second most exciting part is the entire episode centered around the gruesome murder of the head writer on “Temptation Lane,” the soapiest soap opera of all time.

The first scene set up the episode to a T: a young, attractive woman is in bed with her older suitor. As they kiss, her (dashing, European) husband comes home. When the young attractive woman opens the closet door to hide her older, distinguished (read: graying) lover, a ...

Jane Seymour Credits Her Wrinkles For Boosting Her Career

February 8th, 2011 9:47am EST
Jane Seymour
Jane Seymour credits her wrinkles with winning her more roles than ever - because she's convinced she's the last actress of her age who still has "her own face."

The former Bond girl, who turns 60 next week, refuses to smooth out her fine lines with facial-freezing injections and insists her natural appearance appeals to directors looking to cast older women.

She tells Good Housekeeping magazine, "Recently I've been hired a lot because I'm able to play women who are normal. I think a certain amount of wrinkles show who I am. don't do Botox or any of that kind of thing. And I don't obse...

We Love Jane Seymour's Wrinkles

Jane Seymour
We spotted Jane Seymour at her "Among Angels" book signing at Borders in New York City yesterday looking like a normal human being. Well, perhaps she's prettier than a lot of women her age (which is 59!)

You know that Botox craze that's attacking Hollywood lately? Jane is apparently immune, and thank God. While so many celebrities are trying their darnedest to look young, they're starting to look plasticky. Jane, meanwhile, looks lovely as is.

Four years ago Jane slammed actresses who get Botox injections, insisting it will ruin their career. Seymour can't understand why female stars get...

Sylvester Stallone
Hollywood action man Sylvester Stallone has made a splash in the art world - one of his paintings has just sold for $50,000. The Rambo star, 63, has been a part-time painter for 30 years and his hobby is fast turning into a profitable venture.

A collection of Stallone's paintings recently went on display at an art gallery in Miami, Florida and one abstract piece caught the eye of Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn, who handed over $40,000 for the painting on Wednesday.

A self-portrait of Stallone from the 1970s was snapped up by an art gallery boss for $50,000.

David Carradine
Hundreds of mourners flocked to the funeral of David Carradine at the weekend - including former co-stars Lucy Liu, Tom Selleck and Jane Seymour.

The actor was buried in the grounds of Los Angeles' Forest Law Cemetery, and the poignant event attracted a wide range of mourners who gathered to pay their respects - including several Hell's Angels who escorted the coffin to the graveyard.

Carradine's funeral comes almost two weeks after the actor's naked body was found hanging in a wardrobe of a Bangkok hotel on June 04.

Showtime's 'The Tudors' Is Back

April 6th, 2009 4:22pm EDT
The Tudors
Aaaaand we're back! Season 3 of Showtime's The Tudors started with more of a whimper than a bang, as the debatably most interesting period in Henry VII's rule (the Boleyn years) ended last season with poor, delicious Anne losing her head. Now we move into a decidedly slower, stodgier era, with the marriage of Henry to sweet, simple Jane Seymour, and the eventual birth of the King's long-awaited heir, Edward.

The season premiere confirmed the classier direction the show is taking; gone are the hallmark gratuitous sex and fluffy costume-porn filler scenes of the racy first season, and he...

Ursula Andress
Original Bond girl Ursula Andress has beat out competition from Halle Berry and Kim Basinger to be named 007s sexiest siren, according to a new online poll. The Swiss actress entranced audiences as Honey Ryder in James Bond's 1962 debut, Dr. No, opposite Sean Connery.

She also played Vesper Lynd in 1967 Bond spoof Casino Royale, a role later taken on by Eva Green in the 2006 spy movie.

The superspy franchise, which boasts 22 completed films, has seen close to 100 fiesty females take on the coveted part. Sexy star Halle Berry tailed the actress in the second spot, after she played ...

GetBack Bond Ratings: Who Is The Best 007 Ever?

November 3rd, 2008 10:48am EST
Quantum of Solace
With the release of Roger Moore's autobiography, My Word Is My Bond, and the upcoming Quantum Of Solace (the 22nd film in the Official James Bond franchise), we couldn't help but ponder: Who is the best 007 EVER? It goes without saying that he has to be an international man of mystery, a bad-ass crime solver, a babe magnet. Slick, suave, and seductive. But we have our own set of criteria for the best Bond. He must also:

1. Be a snazzy dresser.

2. Have a hot Bond girl.

3. Have a bitchin' ride.

4. Have a killer theme song.

5. Have a relaxing off-hours diversion.

Toni Braxton is set to bounce back from her recent health crisis to compete in the upcoming series of Dancing With The Stars, according to reports.

The "Unbreak My Heart" singer, 41, will reportedly join former 'N Sync star Lance Bass, Jewel's rodeo-rider boyfriend Ty Murray and actress Florence Henderson for the seventh season of the hit show.

The news, broken by In Touch magazine, comes just three months after Braxton was forced to scrap a series of shows in Las Vegas following a health scare which led to the hospitalization.

No More Elgin Lumpkin Or Georgios Panayioutous: Celebrities Who Changed Their Names

July 21st, 2008 10:43am EDT
Marilyn Monroe was originally christened Norma Jean. Archibald Leach opted for the more debonair nom de guerre Cary Grant. At the age of 10, musical prodigy Steveland Morris was dubbed (by Motown founder Berry Gordy Jr.) "Little Stevie Wonder." These aren't the only celebrities who bid farewell to the names bestowed upon them in infancy; among those in the public eye, adopting a more star-worthy moniker seems to be the rule, not the exception.

Stage Names

Where stage names are concerned, some stars keep it succinct. Musicians Cher and Seal shortened their names from Cherilyn and ...

Priscilla Presley Balked On Doing 'Dancing With The Stars'

February 27th, 2008 9:41am EST
Priscilla Presley
Priscilla Presley called pal Jane Seymour before accepting the chance to dance with the stars on TV - for a little moral support. Elvis Presley's former wife admits she's a longtime fan of Dancing With The Stars, but initially turned producers down when they invited her onto the hit show.

At 62, Presley will be the oldest female to ever compete on the show when the new season begins next month, and so she went to the previous age-defying dancer, 57-year-old Seymour, for advice.

She says, "I got the letter from my agent... and it was, 'No, I don't want to.' And then I said, `Wait...

Julia Roberts and her brother Eric have been asked by a stuttering charity to help promote its cause because they both suffered from the affliction as children. The pair overcame their problem before reaching Hollywood - and the Stuttering Foundation of America (SFA) wants them to help others.

A recent newsletter reads, "The Roberts siblings stuttered as children and ironically give credence to the factor the heredity/genetic link in the stuttering equation. They have no doubt inspired young people with the problem."

Representative Jane Fraser tells the New York Post, "It would ...

Actress Jane Seymour is selling her English country house after a long-running feud with local residents over raucous parties held at her home. The star was embroiled in a legal battle with her neighbors in Bath, England, over her $20 million mansion's 24-hour entertainment license, which residents wanted amended or completely revoked.

Despite winning a victory in court over her neighbors last month, Seymour has sold St Catherine's Court for an undisclosed sum. Hein van Vorstenbosch, the property's estate manager, says, "We can't really comment on the details, but I can confirm that t...
