Christmas might be the time of year for families far and wide to gather together but it’s an altogether different story when it comes to what follows: New Year.

The passing of another year brings with it another reminder of the many broken promises you made over the previous 12 months, while the turning of the calendar from 2016 to 2017 serves only to emphasis that we are all getting older.

Well, not all of us. For one select group of women, the ageing process is fast becoming something akin to the ageing of a fine wine.

Like female George Clooneys these celebs seem to be getting better and better with every year while the rest of us get worse and worse.

It’s almost too much to bear. Fortunately, we’re made of stronger stuff here at loaded, which is why we’re celebrating five famous female faces who are proving, beyond all doubt, that the forties are in fact the new twenties.


Cameron Diaz

It’s been two years since Diaz last appeared on the big screen in 2014’s lamentable remake of Annie, but the 44-year-old has been keeping herself busy. Last year she bagged herself a younger husband in 37-year-old Benji Madden – the tattooed one from band Good Charlotte.

If someone had told you Rachel Green would somehow become even better looking as she got older they would probably have laughed harder than a Friends studio audience member. But that’s proven to be the case with Aniston. Brad Pitt must be kicking himself right about now.


Liz Hurley

This English Rose may be a card-carrying UKIPer, but as anyone who tunes into her weekly trash-fest The Royals will attest, Hurley still has it going on. If Mike Myers does have any plans to resurrect Austin Powers he could do worse than turn to this one-time co-star.


Jennifer Lopez

As incredible as it may sounds, Lopez is actually three years off hitting her 50th birthday. Not that you would believe it with the Bronx-born actor/singer proving as prolific as ever on Pop Idol and her latest show, the detective series Shades of Blue. Shades of Grey more like. 50 to be precise. Not sure that even makes sense…


Charlize Theron

Charlize is currently in the midst of what can only be described as a Theronaissance, having wowed in Mad Max Fury Road. Even better could be to come too, with Theron set to feature as the principal villain in the upcoming The Fate of the Furious alongside big Vin Diesel.
