crones

in honor of turning 40 this weekend i needed a reminder of just how hot 40 can be. now i chose women that, to me, looked as though they had little to no work done. just hard work and good genes on their part and maybe a botox injection here or there. so, sorry nicole kidman...you used to be a fine example of beauty at 40 but not anymore. now you just look like a wax version of yourself.

i give you tha hotness:

michelle O 45

cate blanchett 40

catherine keener 50!!! get the fuck out! i had no idea..did you?


halle berry 43



jennifer aniston 40




julia roberts 42




jlo 40



the supermodels:

elle macpherson 46



christy turlington 40



linda evangelista 44


naomi watts 41




renee zellweger 40
(you almost didn't make my list renee bc i wasn't sure if you had a lot of work done, but i think your face is just kinda fucked up to begin with. but your still pretty hot for 40)



salma hayek 43 (look at those chi chi's SGM)



sandra bullock 45




marisa tomei 45



clearly halfway to your grave is not an excuse to not look amazing.
go 40!!!!!!!

i'm totally with you on renee zellweger. she always looks like there's a thumbtack in her thong. catherine keener rocks my world. but michelle IS queen.

The Townhouselady said...

Catherine Keener is he shiznit.

Is it me or is Jen Aniston's tuck game a massive fail in this photo?

Belle de Ville said...

Hotness indeed.
40 totally rocks

Kara said...

What a great post! I will be 41 in a few weeks and I hope I am a good example of what 40 looks like and acts like. Happy Birthday! 40 is pretty great.

Kristin McRea said...

Happy Birthday! Your new photo rocks, Michele has nothing on you!

Jill said...

Halfway to my grave...ugh. I'm 42 in February.

SGM said...

Woo HOOOOO on Salma! I mean, REALLY.

I like how you went deep on the Renee Z issue. I agree with your take 100%.

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

I actually think Renee goes on Botox binges - and maybe, maybe a few bulimia stints - 'splains the severe squintiness-puffy face combo.

Everything about Kate Blanchet rocks my world - the fact that she's 40 and stunning is just chantilly.

Love Anniston, but have to knock her just a tad...having not had kids and all...hey, it DOES make it easier to keep a bod like that - just sayin'

Sarah @ Maison Boheme said...

Aren't they gorgeous? Thank you for including Cate... she is simply the loveliest creature on earth. Go 40!

nkp said...

Happy early birthday girl!!! Their 40 looks better than my 20s! I still have a few years to go before the big 4-0...this is a lot of pressure. The standards are high! :0)

Now I love Marisa and all, but WTF is she doing? Admittedly, I haven't been to a grown up movie in some time. Did I miss this one?

court. said...

wow. my work computer just got a boner. :)

benson said...

excuse me...did I miss the pic of Jen at MFAMB in her bikini? You know you could :) YOU are SO NOT a crone.
*I kind of want to snuggle into Selma's boobs.

Dumbwit Tellher said...

You are such good company. I have to say the 40's I got my game back & looked the best I ever did. Then the 50's hit and my eyelids are resting on my clavicle. Totally what did Mrs. Urban do to her face? Renee is from Katy, Tx where we are living..ha! Must of been a bad crawfish she ate?!

As for Naomi how do you improve on that? I just updated by bio to bi!!

Anonymous said...

OK, now give us a list of women no work done.....

Rachel said...

Okay, so I have about 6 years to work on looking like that... I'd better get to work!!

Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett have always been faves, and I have to say that I had no idea Naomi Watts was 41!!

Oh, and Anniston's butt looks pretty darn fantastic to me - did they not notice the total lack of cellulite?? I mean, how?? How does one go 40 years and still have the butt of an 18 year old?

Rachel said...

Oh, and I really love that Lee Jofa fabric. That would be fantastic on your chair!

Simply Mel said...

What about Demi Moore, Meg Ryan, Madonna, Catherine Zeta-Jones - the world is filled with 40+ hotness, and YOU are about to join their elite club! Woooo-hoooo!

my favorite and my best said...

you guys are so sweet.
anon...take a look at my profile pick and you will see what 40 looks like without any work.

Tamstyles said...

they are the bomb, and i agree with what you said about them all 100%...nicole is kinda unmovable...and renee....hmmmm yeah...something aint right over there.

boops said...

thanks, i needed this today. best wishes for your birthday. my 40's so far have been my favorite decade.

Sharnel said...

Happy 40.
Esp loved the comment about Renee's fuck up face. But I'm convinced she's had work done.
Great post.

Visual Vamp said...

Where's your photo in a bikini?
Love you darlin'
xo xo

Jan said...

If that is an up to date profile pic - have to say you don't look it.
Many Happy Returns !

mb said...

Those are some fine looking 40 year olds. 40 isn't so bad, it was 46 that made me sad. Then 50. No, 40 is pretty wonderful. Enjoy it.

Southern Aspirations said...

SHUT UP. I had no idea you were about to turn 40. I seriously pegged you for 28. I thought I was older than you! You are such hotness (can I say that?) and you have selected some total hottie 40+ women!

(and I'm with Rachel- 6 years to get my butt in gear).

Anonymous said...

Ms Aniston's bikini bottoms look a little...weird...is there something she's not telling us...

And a Faboulous Forty to you!

my favorite and my best said...

anon..you're so right. she has a baby penis in there!

urbansardines said...

What an awesome and inspiring list! I tells ya, it's good to know it's possible to be so hot at 40. And your new picture is hawt! You are gonna ROCK 40!!!!

Sarah Klassen said...

I totally agree! My mom is 48 this year and looks amazing! Her advice? use as little product on your skin as possible, (think Shea butter and natural soap) you are as young as you feel, and always, ALWAYS have fun with your hair and fashion.

I would never have guessed in a million years that you were anywhere even near 40 -- all's good Miss Jenny, you look amazing :)

{xo}

mike said...

For the record - that profile pic is a few months old. ...She's hotter now.

Ragamuffin said...

i'm with several others here: shocked, shocked i tell you that you are 40! but soooo happy b/c i'm about to join your fab 40 group and have been feeling a bit... old. love your celeb picks. i'd also have to add my 40+ fave--parker posey. love her so much i want to marry her.

lucitebox said...

I just turned 43 yesterday. When I was five and people asked my age, I used to say, "I'm five, but I wanna be 10."
Old is the new young.

Keener is da bomb.
Sigourney Weaver is 60! And Lauren Hutton is 66!

Jenny, you look amazing. Forget about these beautiful role model crones! You're one HOT AND VERY FUNNY crone yourself.

Leah said...

thanks for sharing this post...the pics, WOW. i'm going to be 40 next year & need to be reminded there are tons of cool women 40 & up! so great to see that many of the women following your blog are of this age group too. also, you look awesome!

Anita Davis said...

yes, 40 is good! I'll be 42 in feb.; i feel like i'm doing ok, but good lord almighty -- halle berry and naomi watts look a-maz-ing.
(you look mighty good yourself, miss jenny!)

LindsB said...

I would kill to look like any one of those women now! Hell, I'm 28 and I look like I was beat with a sock full of rocks on a bad day...well prob on a good day too :) Those women are H-O-T were do I sign up for those drugs?

aquirkydelight said...

Jesus, your profile picture makes you look like you're not even 30. You hot bitch.

Christy Turlington doesn't usually do it for me, but that picture is LEWD. I love it.

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

You should totally post your picture in this line up!

JJ said...

Bless you for this post. I am all fucked up over turning 36 last week and Decorno sent me over here STAT to get the real scoop on aging.

Bless your big ole heart, girlfriend.

For your birthday I am giving you Edward Cullen. No, go on 'head and take him.

Not gonna lie, this post had me extremely jealous....(I'm 25 by the way). I don't look that good now!!!! (I'm going to the gym first thing in the morning!!!!)

Happy B'day!

Richie Designs said...

Happy 40th.

40 is wonderful, I highly recommend it. Along with a great moisturizer I might add. It makes everything better.

Blake said...

You Know Linda needs to be knocked off the list. She is full of Fakeness and is very open about it. Man she did rock in "Freedom" years ago, the rest are so good.

Naomi = H*O*T !
