Sil­ver fox Matt LeBlanc has rein­vented him­self on the UK’s Top Gear pro­gram over a Hol­ly­wood party any day,” Kid­man told Event mag­a­zine this year.

So is it just be­ing happy and healthy that keeps you young? Or is it the year, 1967? There was a full moon and sol­stice sep­a­rated by just a few hours that year in ad­di­tion to two to­tal lu­nar eclipses. Whether it was in the stars or just a lucky com­bi­na­tion of genes, the ba­bies of 1967 have turned into very good look­ing 50-year-olds.

For Kid­man and Ur­ban, it could be ro­mance that keeps them young. Kid­man has made it very clear that she does not like sur­prises. But that has not de­terred Ur­ban in the past. “I lit off a ton of fire­works,” Ur­ban told TV host Gra­ham Nor­ton about the birth­day ex­trav­a­ganza he laid on for her 40th, 10 years ago.

“She was shoot­ing a film in Aus­tralia and we were in this very small town ... I mirac­u­lously found some com­pany nearby that did fire­works and said, ‘Just bring ev­ery­thing you have. Just bring ev­ery­thing.’

“And there was like a lit­tle moun­tain­top or some­thing and I had a couch taken up there, dropped off there, and we drove up there. We got out of the car and I said, ‘Oh look, there’s a couch over here!’ She’s like, ‘A couch?’ We sat down and then all these fire­works started go­ing off.”

Last year the singer in­ter­rupted a US tour to fly to Aus­tralia for just 48 hours to cel­e­brate Kid­man’s 49th birth­day. In Oc­to­ber the ac­tor cel­e­brated Ur­ban’s 49th by post­ing a pic­ture of his choco­late birth­day cake and the mes­sage: “Happy birth­day to the most lov­ing hus­band, fa­ther and friend we could ever ask for. We love you Big Cat Daddy. Love, Lit­tle Miss Honky Tonk.”

Un­like other stars who hide their ages, Lit­tle Miss Honky Tonk has no prob­lem ad­mit­ting she is about to be­come a mem­ber of the fab­u­lous at 50 club. Kid­man told TV host Ellen de Generes: “I know ev­ery­one says don’t tell your age but I’m like, proudly 50.” Ja­son Statham says he is in the best shape of his life at age 50; and (left) Fast and Fu­ri­ous star Vin Diesel is still at the peak of fit­ness.
