Despite the fact that none of us are immortal, Hollywood is still a fickle and vain place that favors the young. That’s why, when a star manages to defy the odds and keep shining decades after they first got on the scene, we are especially impressed.
Here are 10 celebrities who are still going strong after all these years.
Has any other actress aged as gracefully or continued to be as successful as the incomparable Meryl Streep? We think not.
With a record breaking 19 Academy Award nominations and three wins, the 66-year-old actress’ name has become synonymous with success and she is widely considered to be one of the greatest performers of our time. In recent years, Streep wowed us with her dead-on portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in 2011’s The Iron Lady, impressed us with her singing voice in 2014’s Into the Woods, and we have no doubt she’ll soon have us in stitches with her upcoming role as “the world’s worst soprano” in Florence Foster Jenkins, due out May 2016.
In addition to aging gracefully, Streep has also made the bold choice to age naturally and has been open about her dislike of plastic surgery. Not that she needs any!
