These women I am to name in this post have four things in common: They are celebrities, they are rich, they are successful, and they seem to have the good looks that belie their years on earth. They seem to have a youthfulness that is time-defying. Some of them have had plastic surgery or other work done–while others are that way because of genes and nature. Wherever they’ve found their fountain of youth, they are worth a mention here. Here are Top 10 Hottest Women Over 60 years of age.
10. Jane Seymour
She was born Joyce Frankenberg on February 15, 1951, making her 65 right now. She is best-known for her performances in the James Bond film “Live and Let Die,” in 1973, starring her as Solitaire. Her success in this flick led to other performances as well: “Somewhere in Time,” in 1980. “East of Eden came in 1981. But the series for which she was most famous didn’t come until 1993, when at the age of 42, she returned, playing female doctor Michaela Quinn in “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.”
Britain has been so kind to her. Her native land has honored her as Officer of the Order of the British Empire, back in 1998. In 2000 she was appointed as an officer of the Order of the British Empire.
Jane Seymour is not her real name: She took it from King Henry the Eighth’s third wife. According to Wikipedia, her reasoning is that it seemed more saleable than her real name.

Her voice is known to be very soft, honeyed and soothing.
However, singing is not the only thing for which Newton-John will be remembered. She proved her skills as an actress in “Grease”–which spawned her a #2 single, “Hopelessly Devoted to You–in the summer of 1978. She played opposite John Travolta. Her sister, Rona Newton-John, who unfortunately left us in 2012 due to brain cancer–also starred in that movie.

It was not until 1975 when her career really began to take off as “Wonder Woman, or the bespectacled Diana Prince.” It was then that she began to acquire widespread visibility. She appeared on “Starsky and Hutch” and on a show called “Cos.”
She was not happy with the way they marketed her character. Lots of people began to see her as a sex symbol, and she didn’t want to be perceived in that manner by anyone but her husband.

5. Lauren Hutton
She is the lady with the billion dollar gap-toothed grin who was once advised to put a false tooth in to fill her famous gap. Well, she tried that, and lost that tooth on several occasions. Thus she has decided to go natural since then. In spite of that gap–and perhaps even because of it, she has been on the cover of different magazines–not only once, but multiple times.
Mary Laurence Hutton, who was born in Charleston, South Carolina on November 17, 1943, simply became Lauren Hutton after getting grown and leaving her native Southern state.
She graduated from Chamberlain High School in 1961, and became one of the first students to enter University of South Florida that fall. She relocated to Florida with former Tampa Bay disc jockey Pat Chamburs, 37 at the time. The two later moved to New Orleans, where she went to Newcomb College, gaining a Bachelor of Arts degree there in 1964.

She is one of the big name torch song singers of the 1960’s and ’70’s. She is also an actress. Of all the nicknames and titles she has amassed over the years, her favorite is “song stylist.” By age 4 she knew she could sing, and wanted to be a singer.
But she went to college, spending a year at Ohio State College. Her first big hit was “Guess Who I Saw Today,” in 1960. In 1963 she scored again with “Tell Me the Truth.” Her last big hit was “Face it, It’s Over,” in 1968.

She was born as Cicely Louise Tyson on December 18, 1924, in New York City. She is an American actress, often nominated for movie awards. She has had a storied career.

She is also known as one of the best looking 90-plus year-olds in the world living today.

2. Brynn Thayer
She is perhaps best-known for her portrayals of Jenny Vernon, a nurse in a troubled marriage with liar and cheater Bradley Vernon on the long-running ABC Soap Opera “One Life to Live,” and as the intelligent yet sometimes emotional LeAnn, the attorney daughter of Ben Matlock on “Matlock” in the late 80s/early 90s. She is known for playing assertive women who know what they want in life, as opposed to shrinking violets who accept the status quo as dictated to them by their male counterparts.
She has been in a variety of TV series besides the ones I named above, such as “Murder, She Wrote,” “Moonlighting,” “7th Heaven,” “Castle,” and the ever-so-popular “How to Get Away with Murder.”

1. Oprah Winfrey
She was born on January 29, 1954. Although she was an anchorwoman before, she gave that life up because by her own admission some of the stories would make her too emotional.
All those years she did not draw attention. The turning point was when she was cast as Sophia in the now-classic “The Color Purple.” Her being cast as the strong willed, buxom Sophia got so many people impressed with her acting abilities that the following fall, she landed her spot on the “Oprah Winfrey Show.” Also, she starred in another movie project, Beloved, in the fall of 1998. She didn’t gain as much fame in that movie, as people felt that the movie she created and directed was too long, and the plot was not as well-thought out.
Nevertheless her talk show ran for 25 years, until she retired from it to start her own network, OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network
In spite of her notoriety in the show business world, she is also well-known for her charity work. She has opened schools in developing countries, particularly for young girls. And she is also well-known for gifting her workers with cars and other big gifts as well.
Winfrey, now 62, is worth an estimated 2.9 billion dollars, according to Google.
Another thing worth noting is that these women exude the personality–strong yet sweet–that would qualify them their place on this list. If a person on this list was anything less than this, she would not qualify to be on this list. Indeed, these women are fine examples of what keeps someone looking young for awhile.
