Hottest Actress/Actor over 40

    Zoobyshoe made a comment in another thread that implied people over 40 are too old for romance, perhaps because no would be interested in seeing an old couple in a movie?

    Well, I think there's many actors/actresses over 40 that are very hot!

    In no particular order:

    a. Mary-Louise Parker - Not only is she good looking, I think she has sex at least once in just about every episode of "Weeds".
    b. Julianne Moore
    c. Maria Bello
    d. Halle Berry
    e. Salma Hayek
    f. Marissa Tomei

    And the only reason I didn't mention any actresses over 50 is because there's enough of them that they deserve their own list:

    a. Michelle Pfeiffer
    b. Meryl Streep
    c. Renee Russo
    d. Susan Sarandon
    e. Sigourney Weaver
    f. Geena Davis
    g. Sophia Loren
    h. Sharon Stone

    (I felt I had to make my own thread for this, since the only thing worse for a young person than posting their romantic problems on an internet forum and having their thread hijacked is posting their romantic problems on the internet and having their thread morph into a thread about old people having all of the sex that poor young guy can't ever seem to get.)

    I can't believe you put Sigourney Wierdo in there. I've always had a thing for Marge Helgenberger who was (still may be) on CSI. Not 100% sure of spelling. For the record, I prefer lusting after women in real life not someone I've only ever seen on TV or in a movie.

    Eh. She has top five acting ability, not top five clavicles, so say I. For the same reason Meryl Streep is in the wrong place here.

    So say you?! You know nothing! NOTHING! And I will not stand for it! Obviously, you never saw Branagh's "Much ado about nothing." Come to think of it, most people didn't, but IF YOU DID, you wouldn't be maligning my lady's clavicles!

    Yep, saw Much Ado ..., Sense and Sensibility a couple times, and saw John Travolta squeeze the clavicles in Primary Colors. Sorry, 7.5 from the Russian judge is the best she can manage. 9.9 acting ability.

    Meh! No accounting for taste. I never trusted the Russian judges anyway! (I grew up in the cold war.)

    +1, she can replace Streep on the hot list. Jeez she's 56 now?

    And Geena Davis, cute enough, is a clavicle-less wonder. Begone.

    I think so. My memory isn't what it used to be.

    Actually I never said or implied they (we) are too old for romance. What I actually said was romance among older people is just plain not as interesting, much less likely to make for a good movie plot, because older people are too cautious to do the kind of wild things that make for interesting movies.

    Georgina asked why I often seem to be describing romantic behaviors she characterized as "immature". I said that when I talk about romance and relationships I almost always am referring to the kind of stuff that goes on among younger people, because it's a lot more interesting. That was not meant to be construed to mean " people over 40 are too old for romance".

    If you've got a strong stomach, rent "The Missing". It's a disturbing movie on several levels.

    Blanchett's got game, though still not top five hot, so say I. She's top five glam. Figured her for late 30s.

    Haven't seen Linda Fiorentino since MIB, but she was hot and cute in that.

    I still find Diana Rigg attractive, but then I had a crush on her about 40 years ago when she starred a Emma Peel in the Avengers during the 60's. And she's only 72!


    And then there is Alexandra Bastedo who stared in The Champions, which was broadcast in the US on NBC, starting in summer 1968.
