Our favourite Southern belle Reese Witherspoon turned the ripe old age of 40 yesterday, which you’ll have been made well aware of if you follow the actress on social media.

The Oscar winner rallied an impressive list of famous buddies to celebrate her landmark birthday, with Matthew McConaughey, Taylor Swift Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman and Kate Hudson all showing up to wish the birthday girl well – and, in Taylor’s case, even give an impromptu live singing performance.  

Dressed in a purple sequin mini dress for the occasion, Reese didn’t look anywhere near her 40 years, but of course she’s not the only famous name to be defying the laws of gravity.

Here are just a few of the stars who are totally working that ‘40-going-on-21’ look…

Gabrielle Union, 43

From pom-poms to news reports, Gabrielle Union looks the same now on BETs Being Mary Jane as she did on the 1999 CLASSIC Bring It On.

Gwen Stefani, 46

Having moved on from her divorce last year to new man Blake Shelton, Gwen sure is showing her ex what he’s missing.

Sandra Bullock, 51

Standing strong as one of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses, Sandra has been playing characters in their thirties for the last ten years.

Ellen Degeneres, 58

WHAT!? Just, WHAT!?

Meryl Streep, 66

Having famously been told she was too ugly for King Kong, Meryl sure showed them.

Goldie Hawn, 70

A woman that proves, if a hairstyle ain’t broke…

Jane Fonda, 78

Miss Anti-Ageing herself shows us all who’s boss.


Still totally bitchin', and still with really great hair!

The stars of Bring It On reunited for the ultimate flashback experience to 15 years ago when cheerleaders were the absolute queens of the teen universe.

Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Eliza Dushku and Jesse Bradford sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about how the low-budget 2000 movie was transformed into a complete cult classic.

"Even when I’m promoting different movies or my TV show, people still want to talk about Bring It On," Gabrielle said. 

Joining a cheer-squad was not necessarily fitting with their off-screen personas. 

"I was a tomboy growing up and kind of an anti-cheerleader in real life," Eliza explained.

"But I begrudgingly showed up for the audition, probably a little hungover. There were girls doing flips in the lobby, and I kind of cringed and dodged them and went in, and I guess Peyton [Reed] just found that hilarious. He asked me if I could do a split, so I got onto the ground into a split, and that was it."

Kirsten Dunst admitted that she remembers "not being super sure about it."

"I was like, ‘A cheerleading movie?’ It sounded like it could have been just a cheesy teen movie, but what sealed the deal for me was talking to the director," she explained.

Gabrielle added that while she played plenty of sports in school, nothing had ever prepared her for how intense cheerleading was going to be:

"Those rehearsals were some of the lower points in my life — I questioned my very existence. Everything hurt. That’s probably why there are a lot of close-ups of me, not wide shots."

Well, that sounds delightful, truly.

It was defintely worth it in the end as while Bring It On cost €24 million to make, it has grossed almost €90 million across the globe since it was released, accoording to Box Office Mojo. 







Actress Gabrielle Union married her basketball player beau Dwyane Wade in a gorgeous ceremony yesterday.

The actress, known for her roles in Bring it On and 10 Things I Hate About You, married the NBA star surrounded by family and friends in Miami.

Gabrielle wore a strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline by bridal designer Dennis Basso.

Dwyane and Gabrielle got engaged in 2013 after four years together. 

This is the second marriage for both Dwyane and Gabrielle.

Dwyane was previously married to his high-school sweetheart, Siohvaughn Funches with whom he has two sons, Zaire and Zion. They split in 2007.

Gabrielle married NFL player Chris Howard in 2001 but they split in 2006.

Congrats guys!
