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.
