Halle Berry has been the envy of women everywhere since she began her career. In fact, we should probably be more jealous now than ever before because even at 47 years old her beauty remains constant. She can go glam with makeup or do without and still be just as gorgeous as ever!

Jennifer Aniston

A young Jennifer Aniston was idolized for her hair but now in her 40s she's praised for so much more. At 44 years old Aniston's body is in tip top shape! So much so that the down-to-earth actress went nude for the cover of GQ magazine in 2012.

Jennifer Lopez

Age: 50

After being in the entertainment business for more than 25 years, Vanessa Williams is a veteran in the game but don't let that word fool you. Time looks good on this beauty queen-turned-singer-turned actress. She's still as stunning as the day she took that 1984 Miss America crown.

Salma Hayek

At 41 years old, the beautiful Sanaa Lathan doesn't look a day over 25! It's no wonder Pantene Pro-V named her their newest face in 2012.

Age: 43

The lovely Rachel Weisz is proving to be a timeless beauty. At age 43 she's a fresh as she was 14 years ago in her breakthrough role The Mummy. In fact, the Mrs. 007 (she's married to James Bond himself, Daniel Craig) staunchly opposed to Botox for anybody in her profession, telling Harper's Bazaar, "It should be banned for actors, as steroids are for sportsmen. Acting is all about expression; why would you want to iron out a frown?"

With her firecracker personality, Latina diva Sofia Vergara isn't one to shy away from the attention and if we looked like her, we wouldn't either! This energetic 41-year-old diva has the beauty and *ahem* ample assets that would make any woman jealous and drive any man wild.

Catherine Zeta-Jones may have been missing from the limelight since the early 2000's but we haven't forgotten how stunning she is. Even a few fine lines can't detract from her refined beauty.

Age: 47

We have a hard time believing that Janet Jackson is 47 years old! Her eternal baby face tells a different story and though she may struggle with her weight when she's hot she is smokin'!

Age: 44
The lovely Lucy Liu looks to be turning back the clock. The Elementary star is 44 going on 20, proving, perhaps once and for all, that Asian people simply do not age. We just have one question: can they synthesis DNA yet? Someone needs to get the Lucy Liu gene, bottle it and sell it at every department store in the world!
