Ageless A-listers! Age-defying stars

Brad and these leading ladies prove age is but a number.

At 58, Melanie Griffith is an outspoken user of Instagram.

And in her latest post, the actress has proudly shared a photo of her face without filters.

These days, photo filters and even apps to smooth out wrinkles and blemishes are the norm, so it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s not!

But Melanie is determined to keep it real.

The Working Girl star has been copping criticism from internet trolls, and decided to let ’em have it.

“Here ya go. Unfiltered. I’m 58,” she posted along with her picture. “Go ahead, say some more mean things. Merry Christmas!”

Personally, we think she looks pretty darn good, filtered or not!

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has held heartthrob status in Hollywood for decades, and the star shows he only gets better with age. Pictured in 1996 on the left and at the 2016 Golden Globes on the right, the father-of-six proves he can still melt hearts at 52. Wonder what his secret is…

Mama Mimi! You’d be forgiven for thinking Mariah Carey’s latest snap in a plunging gold one-piece was a throwback. The 45-year-old, who shared the racy pic during her annual holiday to Aspen, looks just as good as she did back in 1997 (L).

Melanie Griffith no filter selfie

Melanie Griffith shared this non-filtered selfie this week, declaring, “Unfiltered… I’m 58. Go ahead, say something mean.”

Melanie Griffith red carpet

But we reckon the actress is doing alright, with or without filters! She hasn’t changed much from her early days on the red carpet. Let the haters hate, Melanie.

You’d be forgiven if you thought Liz Hurley shared a flashback photo! The 50-year-old took to social media to post this “mellow in yellow” bikini snap from a recent getaway. It’s safe to say the mother-of-one looks phenomenal.

She might be 50, but Liz looks just as good now as she did during her modelling heyday (pictured in her iconic Versace pin dress with Hugh Grant in 1994 on the left). The British bombshell, who recently stunned with the selfie on the right, credits her great physique to watching what she eats. “If my jeans feel tight I try to cut back a bit,” she told Healthy Living magazine.

A vision in red! TV royalty Kerri-Anne Kennerley stunned at the Fight Cancer Foundation’s 2015 Red Ball in Melbourne on Saturday night in a high-neck fishtail frock.

The 61-year-old (pictured in 1984 on the left) looks just as good now as she did during her early days in showbiz. The Celebrity Apprentice star keeps a trim figure thanks to an active lifestyle, including regular sessions of golf.

At 61, model and actress Christie Brinkley could be mistaken for 21!

The star, pictured in 2004 on the left and 2015 on the right, swears by a vegan diet but allows the odd indulgence. “I don’t eat fish apart from the occasional oyster.”


Natalie Imbruglia is definitely worth it! The 40-year-old Aussie singer shared this beautiful make-up free selfie, showing of her new darker locks. “A change will do you good! #brunette”. Channeling her 1998 self, the former Neighbours star who is glowing, has one trade secret that we can all pick up: “Lots of sleep, lots of water, and running is really good for your complexion. And with makeup, Less is more.”

There’s a reason Elle Macpherson has been dubbed The Body and honestly, it’s almost criminal how insane the 51-year-old looks these days! The supermodel recently shared this snap of herself kicking back in a black two-piece bikini and she looks just as fit and fab now as she did in 1995 (R).

Then and now! While the Aussie-born beauty ruled the catwalk in the Nineties, the mother-of-two says she’s more confident in her fifties than ever before. “If I look at pictures of when I was young, my smile wasn’t even genuine, because it was so wracked with self-consciousness. If someone asked me when I hit my peak, standing from 50, I would say now or my forties. Maybe when I’m 60, I’ll say my fifties. It certainly wasn’t my twenties,” she told Red Magazine last years.

Like a fine wine, the fearless Sandra Bullock just gets better with age. In 1993 (L) Sandy was glowing with beauty and it’s no different in 2015 (R).

The 50-year-old says she’s a fan of eating well and regular work outs. Speaking to InStyle magazine the actress explained: “I do a lot of Pilates, kickboxing, and weight training in LA, and when I’m in Austin I run or ride a bike.”

We should be so lucky to look as Kylie Minogue at 47-years-old! While the bouncy curls and freckles she rocked so well in the Eighties (L) may be a thing of the past, Miss Minogue’s style evolution has been seriously inspiring.

So what’s the Slow hitmaker’s secret? In a Reddit Q&A last year the diminutive diva revealed: “My guilty confession is that there isn’t [a routine]! In my mind there is absolutely one…hah!! I think I stay in shape with an active (read, exhausting!) lifestyle. My fitness is really sporadic. I have to thank my mum for good genes as I am tiny, just like her.”

“It’s different every day. I’ve been doing barre method because I have a hip flexor injury. I can’t do yoga. I do 20-30 minutes of cardio and then an hour with barre method,” 46-year-old Jennifer Aniston, pictured in 1999 on the left and 2015 on the right, mused to Elle of her work-out routine. Well, it’s certainly working for the radiant actress.

Jennifer Lopez: ultimate face/smoulder/sass goals. The 45-year-old, pictured in 2000 on the left and 2015 right, continues to flourish in talent, intelligence and beauty.

JLo still gives good dress! Who could forget the singer’s iconic 2000 Grammy frock by Versace (L) and earlier this year she was just as smouldering at the 2015 Billboard Music Award in a figure-hugging Charbel Zoe gown.
