5 Stars You Won't Believe Are Almost 50
Either time is ticking along at warp speeds or our math is really, really that bad (don’t editors get a free pass with that one?), but we honestly cannot believe this sampling of celebs will hit the big 5-0 this year. At any rate, they are absolutely defying aging, don’t you think?
Sarah Jessica Parker
Whether you first fell in love with her in Square Pegs or later on in Sex and the City, it seems like Sarah Jessica Parker has been on the Hollywood scene forever. But, through a ton of roles, hairstyles, and who can forget the fashion, she’s pretty much managed to remain ageless, and this coming March, she turns 50. (Likewise, her SATC costar, Kristin Davis, will actually reach the age a bit before SJP in February.)
This British beauty has had a busy career, with gigs in theater, TV and film and a long-standing association (20-plus years!) with beauty powerhouse Estée Lauder, but it still seems like there is just no way Elizabeth Hurley is turning 50 this June. (In additional can’t-believe-that-much-time-has-passed news, it’s been more than 20 years since she wore the infamous Versace safety-pin dress to then-boyfriend Hugh Grant’s Four Weddings and a Funeral premiere.)
The brows! The jeans! The tell-all tales! Brooke Shields has a serious place in the American pop culture psyche and seems to always stake her claim year after year. This May, everyone’s favorite “Pretty Baby” will break into her 50s as well.
She first hit Hollywood as a soap opera star at age 16, has won both an Emmy and Golden Globe for her current gig in The Closer, and is inarguably just about as close as you can get to “six degrees of Kevin Bacon,” and, this August, Kyra Sedgwick will be celebration the big 5-0 as well.
