I’m moving better than I used to.
Pamela Anderson, who turned 50 two weeks ago, still cuts a glamorous figure on the red carpet. emember that frizzy haired ranga kid from BMX Bandits? Well she just turned an impossibly glamorous 50 years of age.
Nicole Kidman has become the poster girl for the fabulous 50s, the bevy of good looking style icons who are proving that 50 is not the new 40 … it’s the new 30.
Among those celebrating their half-century with Kidman and her husband Keith Urban this year will be Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts, the original Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, Django Unchained star Jamie Foxx, French DJ David Guetta, country singer Faith Hill, Friends star Matt LeBlanc, Fast and Furious hard man Vin Diesel and Transporter muscle man Jason Statham.
Publicity queen Roxy Jacenko, who keeps her finger on the Zeitgeist running PR firm Sweaty Betty, says stars are changing ideas of how to live at a certain age.
“No longer are we fitting in with what society used to expect, but the amazing role models in film, TV and sports are all breaking through barriers as to what was expected of them at their age,” Jacenko tells BW Magazine.
“In film and TV we are also seeing directors and producers cast characters in age brackets reflecting society, so the careers of such actors as Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts go from strength to strength. They are no longer restricted by their age,g , as it was in y years p past.”
Jacenko believes the fit andd fabulous stars are merely reflecting a healthy lifestyle andnd younger mindset in the rest of society.
“With health, wellbeing andd sport luxe trends being at the forefront, we are now all living better lifestyles, looking after ourselves and, as a result, those turning 50 don’t look or feel like their age,” she says.
“Just look at that body on Jason Statham! He is about to become a first-time time dad and looks as good as he has in the past decade, all from his own training ing regimen.”
Action star Statham announced unced three months ago that he and his fiance, former Victoria’s Secretet model Rosie HuntingtonWhiteley, are expecting their first child. There is a 20-yearage gap between the pair but Statham’s cut physique belies his seniority.
“I’m moving better than I used to. I’m feeling pretty nimble. It’s about the whole thing: training, eating, sleeping g… … all of those have a massive impact pact on how you feel,” he told Men’sn’s Health.
“And I’m doing better at all of those things. Sly Stallone’s got 20 years on me and still looks good, so he’s part of my inspiration.
“He is Rocky. That’s what he’s like. Everything he does seems to be with a natural Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman have eyes only for each other. swagger. And, like in any kind of business, when you see someone doing their thing so well, you become a sponge. You soak it up.” There are other stars born in 1967 who did not pay as much attention to those lessons and have not made it through to the fabulous at 50 club — one prime example being Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, who killed himself in 1994, aged just 27. ertainly Keith Urban took a long hard look at his lifestyle after marrying Kidman in Sydney at Manly’s Cardinal Cerretti Memorial Chapel on June 25, 2006, just five days after Kidman’s 39th birthday. Shortly afterwards Urban went into rehab for drink and drug addiction, crediting his new wife for saving him. “First and foremost, my marriage with Nic informs everything,” he gushed to a music radio station 10 years into their marriage. “Nic is so unbelievably open; she doesn’t keep things in or bottle them up. She’s really a great communicator. “Because of her, if I open up, every day, I’m listening and growing and learning. If I’m a better man, it’s because of her.” The couple have two daughters Sunday Rose, 8, and Faith, 6, and it is with them that the couple are truly happy. “My comfort zone is my family — my happiest place in the world is in our huge bed with Keith and the girls just chilling out and chatting.
