22 stars who don't seem to age
Aging with grace
Celebrities may have access to the best skin and hair pros—not to mention just about every pricey wrinkle cream, injectable filler, and skin-tightening surgery—but none of these guarantee they will age gracefully. In fact, many celebs who've searched for the fountain of youth at their plastic surgeon's office look anything but youthful. So what is the secret of looking great as you get older? We're not sure, but here are some tips and tricks from celebs who are doing it right—whether it's exercise, feeling comfortable in your own skin, or a combination of factors.

Would you believe that Bullock is even a day over 40? The 50-year-old star not only boasts some stellar acting chops in "Gravity" and "The Blind Side," but also rocks a tight body on the red carpet. In her off time, she likes to stay active by switching up her workout routines. "I do Pilates, kickboxing, weight training," Bullock told InStyle in 2009. "If I can work out every day, I will."
Between acting, singing, and running her own fashion and home lines for Kohl's, J.Lo, 44, is a busy gal. It's good then that she takes the time to protect her delicate skin. She credits her makeup artist Scott Barnes for helping her wise up about sun safety. "The number one beauty tip Scott has taught me is to stay out of the sun," the mega mogul told StyleCaster in 2010. "We've always worked with bronzers and self-tanners instead."
With her bubbly personality on TV, it's no surprise that Couric, 57, tries to have a little humor as she grows older. "God's way of helping us age is to have our eyesight go as our faces go—you can't really tell how wrinkly you are," she joked in a video about aging on her website. In all seriousness, though, Couric looks great no matter her age. Her talk show Katie may be coming to a close, but this television icon has her eyes set on digital as she ups her involvement as global anchor for Yahoo.
Crawford's modeling heydays were back in the 80s and 90s, but even at 48 she still carries the same classic beauty from her early 20s. This legendary supermodel's trick for maintaining a young look? Stop doing up your face, for real. "As I've gotten older I wear less makeup," Crawford told The Daily Mail in 2012. "It can make you look older, and hopefully we get more comfortable in our skin."
Three reasons to be envious of Moore: her lustrous red locks, silky porcelain skin, and the fact you could never tell her real age is 53. The actress, soon to appear in the final installments of "The Hunger Games" series, is all about focusing on what really matters. "I'm grateful for my family and my children," she told Health in 2013. "I think the older you get, the less you take anything at all for granted." Plus, she knows how to keep calm under pressure. The gal loves Yoga, getting in two to three sessions a week.
No one could forget Winslet's shot to fame after portraying the lovely socialite Rose in 1997's "Titanic." This 38-year-old Oscar winner of "The Reader" has some simple tricks for keeping makeup natural. "Don't be heavy-handed and whack it all on at once," she told InStyle in 2014. "And put mascara on the roots of your lashes with a flat-ended eyeliner brush. It makes the whites of the eyes seem whiter and keeps the lids from appearing too heavy."
Berry may be 47, but the "Monster’s Ball" actress and Revlon spokeswoman still looks dazzling as ever, even after two kids. Plus, this former Bond girl is not afraid of the changes that come with aging. She told InStyle in 2012, "You're moving into a new phase of your life—embrace it! That's what I hope to do." Next, she'll tackle playing an astronaut in the new CBS sci-fi thriller "Extant."
This dame's still got it! Just two years ago, Mirren, now 68, bested supermodel Elle MacPherson for best body in a L.A. Fitness poll, proving you don't have to be young to have it going on. Oh, and sporting a bikini is definitely not off limits for this film legend either. The Academy Award winner turned heads when spotted in a red two-piece back in 2008. This year, she told AARP, "[Sex appeal] becomes less relevant with age, which is a good thing."
With her trademark glow, it's no wonder Aveeno wanted Aniston, 45, to be the face for the brand's natural skincare line. It doesn't hurt either that the actress looks no different from her days playing Rachel on "Friends." Aniston is a big believer in simple beauty routines, and last year shared her top trick for maintaining a fresh look with Allure: "Vaseline on your eyes at night. It moisturizes your lashes and the skin around your eyes."
