Gentlemen, start your engines!
1. Sally Field
When SMC asked me to do this piece, I said, “I think Sally Field will be number one”. Sure enough, she made it, and coming in at a controversial number 1, at 62 years of age, is Sally Field. I DOUBT my FIRE for her will be extinguished any time soon.
2. Olivia Newton-John
At number two, we have the lovely Olivia Newton-John, who, at the age of 60, still looks ready to get physical, if you know what I mean.
3. Candice Bergen
I never watched Murphy Brown with any regularity, but one thing is for sure: Candice Bergen still knows how to work it. At 62 she’s making moves and getting it done her way.
4. Catherine Deneuve
Catherine Deneuve was almost left off of the list and that would have been tragic, but also a great injustice to such a fine French actress. Besides, had she been left off we probably would have gotten an indignant email from the Gerard Depardieu estate demanding her inclusion.
5. Charlotte Rampling
One night, I was watching Spy Game, a riveting tale of international intrigue, when an older woman appeared on screen. I said, “Damn, she’s pretty hot for almost 60”. It was Charlotte Rampling, and at 62, the rest is history.
6. Susan Sarandon
Susan Sarandon seems older than 62, but she’s not. Nevertheless she still has it going on, but not like she used to, like in Bull Durham for example.
7. Tina Turner
At 69, Tina Turner really looks good. I know absolutely nothing about her or her career, except for, “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, so we’ll leave it at, “she’s pretty hot for 69 years-old.”
8. Goldie Hawn
More like Oldie Hawn. Goldie Hawn has a hot daughter, Kate Hudson, and I’m not going to lie, that really helped her secure a spot on this list. Interestingly enough, I’m sure all of these women have hot daughters.
9. Barbara Hershey
I’ve never found Barbara Hershey to be all that attractive, but she is in the greatest sports movie ever made, co-starring with the greatest actor to ever live. We are of course referring to Hoosiers and to Gene Hackman. Nevertheless, Hershey looks pretty good at 60, so keep up the good work. And yes, that is the largest picture I could find of a mature looking Barbara.
Twiggy would have been number 1, but she’s only 59, so I made her number 10. She hasn’t changed a bit since her role in Club Paradise, except that she’s aged about 30 years. Nevertheless, she still gets my motor running and will move up to first the day she turns 60.
