American Horror Story Star Jessica Lange has become the face of Marc Jacobs cosmetics, and the equally beautiful Charlotte Rampling now embodies the beauty ideal of the Nars brand. Both actresses are over 60. We chose ten more mature stars whom we would like to see on lightboxes and on advertising pages instead of models - because their image carries a certain experience and ideals.
The 67-year-old Oscar winner, Sarandon became famous for her roles in Tony Scott's Hunger, where she played the beloved of the immortal heroine Catherine Deneuve, and the red-haired beast in The Eastwick Witches. She is still actively filming (even more actively than in her younger years), consistently supporting democrats and social campaigns. Two years ago, Susan and her 26-year-old daughter starred in a Neiman Marcus ad “The Art of Fashion”, where, to the credit of the department store, the actress was hardly photo-shopped. She looked perfect.
Judy Dench has been playing heroines at an age for twenty years, but in the memory of the audience (if not all, then certainly the majority) she will remain as the first female M from Bond. Even if you know the actress's track record by heart, you must admit that the role of the head of the British secret service MI-6 is more than a worthy role to go down in history with him. At 79, Dench feels like a “43-year-old graceful blonde with legs from her ears” and is not going to retire at all. We call these women "ideal role models."
Briton Emma Thompson at the age of 35 played 16-year-old Eleanor in the film Sense and Sensibility, won an Oscar for her role, and another for the script for the film, which she wrote for several years. She gave birth to her first child at 39. Adopted a complex teenager from Rwanda. After 40, he boldly plays wives, mothers, freaky sorceresses and even ugly nannies. At the same time, in reality, she looks better than many of her heroines (which is generally a rarity at any age). In general, Emma Thompson is an excellent psychotherapeutic example for anyone who is intimidated by any numbers after thirty.
From Greenway to Elizabeth II in Stephen Frears' The Queen and Prosper's in the fantasy production of Shakespeare's The Tempest, Helen Mirren has always looked like the epitome of everything British. In 2012, she starred in the Marks & Spencer campaign alongside much younger compatriots: artist Tracey Emin, model Karen Elson and singer Ellie Golding. We do not raise a hand to write a formulaic phrase about the connection between tradition and modernity, but it seems that this is what Mirren personifies.
Sigourney Weaver played one of the most powerful female roles in the history of mainstream cinema - a woman astronaut who turned out to be a worthy opponent and, in a sense, a partner of the Alien. The affairs of bygone days? Pfft, Sigourney is still seen as the woman of the future - in Avatar, she plays the head of a scientific mission. In addition, in reality, she is also seriously concerned about the protection of the environment.
One of the most beloved Hollywood actresses, Meryl Streep is positive in every way. Not a single Oscar ceremony seems to be complete without her; she is equally suited for roles in the drama "The Hours" and the comedy "Death Becomes Her"; she doesn't look stupid even in the musical "Mamma MIA!" and is literally saved by the recent biopic Margaret Thatcher, playing the British prime minister in old age and half-insane. By the way, she donated the fee for this role to the National Museum of Women's History.
There is almost an equal sign between Huppert and French festival cinema: during her career, she managed to star in Jean-Luc Godard, Maurice Pialat, Bertrand Tavernier, Claude Chabrol and Claire Denis (this is only part of the list), never going into Hollywood. Her most famous role is in "The Pianist" Haneke, where she tried on in every sense the heavy image of an adult woman, depressed by her mother.At the same time, it seems that she will play heroines of an indefinite age for a long time: neither by the figure nor by the face of Huppert, with translucent skin, shining freckles and an almost complete absence of makeup, it is absolutely impossible to guess the year of her birth - 1953.
One of the few female directors in Hollywood, James Cameron's ex-wife and beauty, Bigelow shoots on seemingly male themes. For example, the crime classic "On the Crest of the Wave" with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves is her handiwork. In 2010, her "The Hurt Locker" about the war in Iraq stole the "Oscar" from "Avatar", and "Target number one" about the operative who found Osama bin Laden, collected several dozen awards and nominations. At that time, Bigelow was 60 - and there is no way to give this age to her: she is now in great shape both as a woman and as a director.
The face and voice of Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks, a year ago, was loved and remembered mainly by music lovers, shall we say, of the older generation. But then in the new season of American Horror Story, the hippie witch Misty Day appeared, whom Nyx served as a role model. And soon Nyx appeared in the series as herself. And I must say, the way she looks at 65, indirectly confirms the rumors about the singer's witchcraft.
The child of a whirlwind romance between Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini, actress, model, David Lynch's muse, filmmaker, environmentalist and writer, Rossellini has been the face of Lancôme for 14 years. Until 1992, when, according to her, the French cosmetics concern canceled the contract with her because she was "old." At that time, Isabella Rossellini was 40 years old. Now 61, and times have changed: a year ago she became the face of Bulgari - and Lancôme should start chewing on her elbows.
