THESE A-listers all have something in common – they were all born in 1969.
A survey found that we feel sexiest at age 53 — less concerned about what others think and happier in our bodies.
Here we look at how these celebrities feel just fabulous.
From Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston and Tess Daly to Matthew McConaughey and Gerard Butler, Kate Jackson shares the joy.
WHEN J-Lo turned 50, she declared, “I feel sexy, I feel youthful, I feel pretty sometimes.”
In fact, the mother-of-two admitted that she looks at pictures of herself in her twenties and thinks, “Oh, I look better now.”
The American singer, actress and producer, who turns 53 next month, has always had a passion for exercise — and it shows.
She enjoys dance routines and strength training five times a week, avoids alcohol and coffee, and gets eight to 10 hours of sleep a night.
American beauty Jennifer is still rocking her signature blonde locks and vowed she’ll keep dying her hair “to the bitter end.”
She said: “I’m not going to lie, I don’t want gray hair.”
Two years ago, to celebrate her 51st birthday, she stunned the world with a salacious cover shoot for Interview magazine – wearing thigh-high boots, black hot pants and a leather jacket.
These shots have garnered nearly 9.5 million Instagram likes.
The Morning Show actress, now 53, swears by a daily glass of celery juice, uses a 24k gold bar on her face and has been applying moisturizer since she was 15.
AS Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood could say of the show’s host Tess looks fabulous.
The ex-model works out with a personal trainer two to three times a week and also fits into daily yoga, though it’s just a 15-minute stretch before bed to help her fall asleep.
Mum-of-two Tess admits: “I need chocolate every day. It makes me happy.”
But she eats a balanced diet of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, and hasn’t eaten red meat since she was young.
She is a fan of Ultherapy – a non-surgical skin tightening and lifting treatment.
FILM siren Cate swears by taking vitamins and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar daily to cleanse the intestines.
The Hobbit actress uses Sk-Il Facial Treatment Essence, a Japanese treat celebs have loved for the past 20 years.
But even the radiant Australian, 53, admits she sometimes accidentally falls asleep with her makeup on.
For the 2017 sci-fi flick Thor: Ragnarok, she revealed that she went through “horrendous” workouts to get in the best shape of her life.
In addition to regular Pilates, she credits running behind four kids to keep her in shape.
THE British film pro likes to do cardio and weights five times a week to stay in shape and will increase this as needed for his roles.
He trained relentlessly six hours a day for 2006’s action blockbuster 300, in which he played Leonidas, the Greek warrior king from the ancient city-state of Sparta.
Gerard, who turned 53 in November, has hired Wesley Okerson as a coach for the stars, whose clients are Tom Cruise and his ex-wife Katie Holmes, as well as Sacha Baron Cohen, the Borat film creator, and his wife, the former Home And Away star, belonged to island fishermen.
His methods focus on low-impact, high-resistance workouts.
BRIDGET JONES Screen beauty Renee has an excellent philosophy on aging. She says, “It doesn’t age, it grows.”
The Texas actress was dogged by rumors of cosmetic surgery after she was pictured sporting a dramatically different look on the red carpet in 2014.
She denied going under the knife, attributing her appearance to “living a different, happier, more fulfilling life.”
As for exercise, Renee prefers to hit the gym or work out with a trainer, saying, “It’s my solitude and I need it.”
CATHERINE ZETA JONES
Welsh beauty Catherine is still exuding Hollywood glamor as she approaches her 53rd birthday in September.
The Chicago actress, who runs lifestyle and beauty brand Casa Zeta-Jones and is married to film veteran Michael Douglas, 77, is a big makeup fan and says: “I don’t put the bins out without mascara or Mascara out some eyeliner.”
Catherine, who suffers from eczema, says she’s been paying more attention to her skin, nails and hair since turning 40.
She believes in drinking plenty of water and is not averse to anti-aging treatments. She says, “I’m for anything that makes you happy.”
LIKE his career, Matthew’s looks only get better with age.
Ladies and many men trembled when he showed off a toned physique in the 2012 striptease comedy Magic Mike.
American Matthew, who turned 53 in November, told Men’s Journal he does a 20-minute run, turns around, and then does 10 sets of 20 push-ups on the way back — 200 in total.
In his 2020 memoir Greenlights, he called sex “the original exercise,” adding, “It makes our partner see us in a more flattering light, which psychologically makes us feel better looking.”
HOW TO MEET THE BIG FIVE – OH OH YES!
By Kate Taylor
SEX doesn’t have to fade with age – follow my sexy tips to have the kinkiest decade yet.
- A PRACTICE: There’s a reason J-Lo works out five hours a week, and it’s not ALL it takes to build that loot. It improves blood flow to your nether regions and increases your sexual satisfaction. The NHS recommends 150 minutes of exercise a week, and that includes anything from yoga or tennis to a brisk walk.
- CYMBAL ABILITY: For both women and men, your 50s is the time when your pubococcygeus, or pelvic muscles, start to lose momentum. They’re important to being able to laugh, cough or use a trampoline without having to alert the RNLI, but also important to keeping your sex life going. In women, toned pelvic muscles improve the feeling during sex, while in men they ensure a strong erection. To train them, imagine stopping to pee for up to 20 seconds – try this 3 times a day.
- hormones: In terms of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, your fifties is the decade when your body starts sweeping the floor and turning off the lights. These hormones control the sexual response – without estrogen and testosterone (even in women) there is no desire. How ever. HRT can replenish your stores, but there are also some natural ways to increase your levels. Exercise is great – lifting weights has been shown to increase testosterone production. But sunshine helps, too. It has been found that just 20 minutes of direct sunlight on men’s chest increases their testosterone levels.
- INCREASE THE STIMULATION: Feelings begin to fade in your fifties. Not emotionally, but physically. Especially the feelings in your parts. Reduced blood flow means your dentures don’t notice the lighter touches that drove you wild in your twenties. Try using stronger sex toys to speed up your reaction. A sex toy that uses “suck” rather than “hum” sensations will now be more rewarding.
- PERFECT PARTNERS: Sex is not always a solo sport. To have a great sex life in your fifties, you need an accomplice. Make sure your relationship is healthy. If you’re just fighting, couples therapy can help. If you just want more passion then head off together on your own or bring the fun back into the bedroom with sex games and roleplay. Single? Use an over 50 dating site like OurTime.co.uk to ensure you are not overlooked.
