Like the years preceding it, 2022 promises to be anything but forgettable. But for a beautiful bunch of A-list stars, the year ahead will be even more momentous as they celebrate the big 5-0 … while still looking fresh and fabulous! Gone are the days of 50-year-olds being stuck in a pre-pensioner, retirement-prepping age bracket. As the following 10 high-profile celebrities prove, 50 might just be the new 30. 1. Jennifer Garner: April 17 The first star on this list is award-winning actress Jennifer Garner. While it would be understandable to confuse the two images of the ageless American as being snapped days apart, there are an astonishing 20 years separating these photographs. 2. Carmen Electra: April 20 Carmen Electra achieved fame and success through her performances in parody comedy films like Scary Movie, among others. There is, however, nothing laughable about her age-defying beauty. Celebrating her 50th birthday in April, the former glamour model and Baywatch actress looks just as stunning as she did two decades ago. Who is Jazmin Grace Grimaldi, the illegitimate daughter of Monaco’s Prince Albert? 3. Laverne Cox: May 29 The trailblazing trans actress got her big break starring in 2013’s hit TV show Orange is the New Black. Since then, Cox has been a pioneer for trans rights, representation and inclusivity. She was the first transgender person to win an Emmy and the first to grace the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine. In 2022, Cox is set to reach another milestone – celebrating her 50th birthday. 4. Sofia Vergara: July 10 Not only was Sofia Vergara the highest paid actress in American television between 2013 and 2020, the South American star was arguably the most attractive, too. In an interview with Health.com, the Modern Family s tar revealed that while she definitely uses beauty products like masks and scrubs , she’s had to “simplify as [she’s] gotten older”. Her daily beauty regimen includes mild soap for cleansing, Vitamin C serum and retinol. Of course, she also maintains an active healthy lifestyle, with a preference for Pilates, yoga and dancing. Whether it’s her daily routine or just down to good genetics, there’s no denying that Vergara makes 50 look great. 5. Geri Halliwell: August 17 As one fifth of the bestselling female music group of all time, Geri Halliwell attained a superstar level of success in her early 20s. Fast forward almost 30 years and the mum of two and wife to F1 boss Christian Horner is as vivacious as when she first stepped onto the world’s stage as the iconic Ginger Spice. 12 best – and worst – wedding dresses worn in Hollywood movies 6. Idris Elba: September 6 In addition to an impressive collection of acting accolades, the English actor has long been lauded for his smouldering good looks and undeniable appeal. He was named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2018. Now as Elba approaches his 50th birthday, it looks like the handsome actor has barely aged at all. 7. Gwyneth Paltrow: September 27 Born to showbiz parents, actress Blythe Danner and producer Bruce Paltrow, Gwyneth Paltrow is Hollywood royalty. More recently, however, the award-winning actress and mother of two has made a name for herself as a lifestyle and wellness guru. She’s released cookbooks as well as running her own lifestyle company, Goop, which has expanded into products, a wellness summit, a magazine and a Netflix series. Perhaps the successful entrepreneur and actress’s dedication to living life well has helped her maintain a youthful appearance at 50. 8. Eminem: October 17 Marshall Mathers – mostly known by his stage name Eminem – has spent some three decades producing groundbreaking music. He also created his own record label, published books and more recently opened Mom’s Spaghetti, an Italian eatery in Detroit, Michigan, where he spent time growing up. Now sporting a beard, it seems the facial fuzz is the only thing that makes The Real Slim Shady rapper look older than he did 10 years ago.

But considering that at the age of 28, Gabrielle Union was convincingly cast as a high school student for her breakout role in the 2000s teen smash-hit comedy Bring It On, it’s clear that she’s blessed with age-defying beauty. 10. Jude Law: December 29 Jude Law has enjoyed an accomplished career on both stage and screen, starring in a long list of acclaimed productions. Having made a global name for himself as a heartthrob thespian, Law is set to embark on a new chapter in his career: that of a 50-year-old actor who looks just as dashing as he did when he broke onto the scene in the 1990s.
