I’m mov­ing bet­ter than I used to.

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Best Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
