Who are the newest sexiest actresses to join the over 40 crowd as we start 2011? Here’s a look at the hottest actresses that turned 40 last year:
Jennifer Connelly – She just joined the long list of Hollywood’s sexiest actresses over 40 last December, and is also expecting her second child with actor Paul Bettany sometime in 2011. So as proof that it’s never too late to be a smoking hot mom, Jennifer Connelly definitely deserves a spot on this list.
Uma Thurman – Whether she’s playing a gal just looking for a good time, one out for bloody revenge, or one that’s part poisonous plant, Uma Thurman always wows with her unique look and crazy characters (although we’d all rather forget this MILF’s major “Motherhood” bomb). So what’s next for one of the tallest, sexiest actresses over 40? Look for her playing Lois Lane in “Movie 43”, a movie loaded with celebrities starring in short comedy sketches that’s set to be released sometime in 2011 (her short is about Batman’s sidekick Robin going on a date).
Tina Fey – The star of “30 Rock” turned 40 last year, and her geeky, loveable Liz Lemon and ability to make us laugh with her Sarah Palin impersonation have helped make Tina Fey one of the sexiest actresses on TV, despite her character’s often disgusting physical problems, like excessive facial hair growth and various gross growths on her feet.
Julie Bowen – And here’s another of the funny ladies of 2011 making us laugh and lust after her as one of the sexiest actresses over 40 on TV. Sure her character Claire on “Modern Family” can be a bit annoying and overbearing, but it’s impossible not to fall in love this mother of twins, whether she’s rockin’ the frazzled mom look or going glam on the red carpet.
Heather Graham – It’s hard to believe that this gorgeous golden girl is now over 40, since she just doesn’t seem to age. We love her whether she’s playing a sexy spy willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done (even if it means a night with Fat Bastard); a porn star on roller skates; or a breast-feeding stripper, and it’s quirky and fun roles like these that help make her one of the sexiest actresses in Hollywood (having no problem being filmed in her birthday suit also helps).
Charisma Carpenter – If only we had sexy vampire-battling vixens like Cordy and Buffy to defeat the sparkly bloodsuckers plaguing moviegoers today. Fortunately, one of the sexiest actresses over 40 can still be seen on the big and small screens in movies like “The Expendables” and TV series “Greek”, and this brunette with a big, bright smile is just as much of a babe today.
Debbie Gibson – This bubbly blonde has gone from a teen pop queen to one of the sexiest actresses over 40 on the small screen, thanks to her role in the upcoming 2011 Syfy movie “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid”, in which the mega python and gatoroid won’t be the only stars facing off in a battle royale; she and her old rival Tiffany are all set for a showdown of their own in this beastly, bad B-movie.
Amy Jo Johnson – The Pink Power Ranger is all grown up and looking great as another of the sexiest actresses of 2011 over 40. So what’s Amy Jo up to now that she no longer has to deal with the Putty Patrol? She plays the part of a Toronto policewoman in “Flashpoint”, so she hasn’t given up battling baddies (now they just aren’t giant monsters resembling pigs, flowers, lipstick, purses, garbage, taxi cabs, and all sorts of other random things).
Samantha Mathis – You might remember this adorable blonde from “American Psycho” or as the girl that was with River Phoenix when he died, but she also did an amazing job playing Princess Daisy in the “Super Mario Bros.” movie. So what’s she been up to lately? Well, she played the voice of Ryan Reynolds’ wife in “Buried” and has a few movies in the works for 2011, so she’s another of the sexiest actresses over 40 in Hollywood not letting age slow her down.
Leah Remini – We know her best as the out-of-his-league wife of Kevin James’ on “King of Queens”, but now this bubbly brunette has gone from one of the sexiest actresses over 40 to one of the hottest talk show hosts on TV, joining a slew of other famous faces on “The Talk” (and somehow her famous face hasn’t aged since her “King of Queens” days).
So will this slew of new actresses that joined the over 40 crowd in 2010 still be going strong when they hit the big 5-0? You only have to wait a decade to find out if they make the list of the sexiest actresses over 50 in 2021.
