    Over 40 Actresses

    List of 40 over 40 actresses.

    Who knew there were so many and with projects. I thought it was just Meryl Streep, and ...well, Meryl Streep

    It's nice to read that Michelle Pfeiffer will be back on the big screen again, although it will be in a drama,and her serious movies don't usually do very well.

    Meryl has an oscar bait project "The Iron Lady" in her future; It's an autobiography of Margaret Thatcher. The potential bad new is that it will be directed by the same lady that butchered the big screen version of "Mama Mia".

    How great is THIS? So much for the youth movement.
    WHY is Sarah Silverman on the list?

    Wow - I didn't recognize Robin Wright with dark hair.

    And either that picture of Julia Roberts caught her in a weird moment, or she's had eye work done. Bad eye work.

    I'm super excited that Frances McDormand is starring in the tv adaptation of Olive Kitteridge. I was wondering who'd make an ideal Olive as I was reading the novel. I knew it'd make a great HBO series.

    But her trademark protruding forehead vein is still in place, so she's probably Botox-free!

    Robin Wright looks great with dark hair. Frances McDorman should sue whoever took that picture of her. And Tilda Swinton is 50?!?!?! I never would have guessed. Angela Bassett also looks amazing, although I knew she was in her 50s.

    If only we could all look as good at 61 as Sigourney Weaver (and at 50 as Tilda Swinton, and Helen Mirren at 65--amazing, all of them).

    I'm not sure I like Princess Buttercup with jet-black hair. Maybe a more medium-brown would look better?

    I think her eyes look like she needs an eye job. Esp the left drooping lid.

    Sorry, but Tilda Swinton looks about as "good" as Marcia Wallace or Ann B Davis.

    Tilda Swinton barely looks over 35. I would have guessed she was maybe 38, tops.

    Michelle Pfeiffer is going to play Elizabeth in the "Dark Shadows" film? As good as she looks, and as bad of that profile picture of Eva Green on imDB looks, let Michelle play Angelique!

    Work done or not (and I have no idea), my fellow William and Mary alum Glenn Close looks incredible at over 60, as do Helen Mirren and Sigourney Weaver.

    I always thought that Glenn had a singular type of attractiveness.

    I don't get it either. She is such a B-lister.

    Great list. I'm glad to see more women over 40 having projects considering the traditionally youth-obsessed business.

    Thank god for indies. The indie film industry has opened up so many additional acting opportunities.

    Nice to see Angela Bassett on the list. I think she doesn't get enough work worthy of her.

    I love Laura Linney too - ever since Tales of the City, I have been a fan.

    That's what happens when you overdo the lip plumper. She would be scary scary in HD.

    She quickly aged out of those cutesy-poo yuppie princess parts she played all the time. I found her unwatchable most of the time. And those platypus lips didn't help matters.
