Kylie Minogue tops poll of SEXIEST CELEBS OVER 50, here's who else made it
The result of a new poll of the hottest A-listers above the age of 50 has been out and unexpectedly, there is someone who has left Elizabeth Hurley as well as Jennifer Aniston behind her. The celebrity who beat everyone with her fitness and sexiness is Kylie Minogue, who at the age of 53 has appealed most to the people.
The Australian singer topped the chart of the poll, carried out by dating site Ourtime where 1,500 of its users voted, while Hurley and Aniston came second and third respectively. Other stars included in the poll were George Clooney — who at the age of 60 received 29 percent of vote and came fourth — Nicole Kidman, Brad Pitt, Tess Daly, Julia Roberts, Hugh Jackman, and Helen Mirren.
Let’s take a closer look at the beauty secrets of the most alluring celebrities.
Kylie Minogue: Minogue, who has ruled the Australian pop world for almost forty years, is not just popular for her music talent but also for her envious physique. The ‘Neighbours’ star had also reportedly insured her buttocks for $4 million. However, it has not always been easy for the pop princess.
At the age of 36, Minogue was diagnosed with breast cancer but she did not let it destroy her spirit and came out stronger after beating it. A few years ago, she credited her youthful look to her skincare regime. She told YOU magazine: “I always cleanse my face and I could probably count the number of times I’ve gone to bed with mascara on: I have to get everything off.”
She had also added: “I swear by using a muslin face cloth for exfoliation because it’s never too harsh, and I like a good sunblock. You can’t really stay out of the sun in Australia, and I love the vibes of the sea, so I get myself a bit of vitamin D. But I reapply sunblock all the time, and I’m under the tree with a hat, fully covered, swatting mosquitoes!”
Elizabeth Hurley: Hurley received 33 percent of people’s vote to get the second position in the poll. Last year, the English beauty shared her beauty secrets and that is not some youth fountain she’s discovered, it’s just her lifestyle. She told the UK's Sunday Times in October 2021: “I don’t eat sweets. I drink little alcohol. I don’t smoke but I deeply regret that I once did. I have learned to eat lighter and not so late.”
Jennifer Aniston: The third-ranker reportedly swears by Aveeno’s Daily Moisturizing Lotion for her youthful look. She had once said, “I have a bottle in my car. It’s in all of my bathrooms. Put it on right out of the shower before you get too dry.” The ‘Friends’ alum also takes good care of her hair and instead of flaunting her natural grays, she likes to get them colored every five weeks. Besides, she thanks boxing coach Leyon Azubuike for her fit body who trains her at Gloveworx gyms in Los Angeles.
George Clooney: It seems the charm of Clooney is not going to die as the 60-year-old actor is still people’s heart-throb. The American actor will reportedly be soon seen with Julia Roberts in a romantic comedy ‘Ticket to Paradise’ after last starring together in 2016’s ‘Money Monster’.
Earlier, he had shared his fitness secret and said: “Well, we do a lot of aerobics, a lot of dance, there is a lot of jazz-ercise, the ab-master, there's the butt-blaster or whatever it's called. And also there is a lot of yoga. And I have also just finished doing a movie where I did football with a bunch of 21-year-olds, which I highly recommend. That's going to keep anyone in shape.”
Nicole Kidman: The 54-year-old American-Australian beauty was chosen by 25 percent of the people who participated in the poll. During a 2017 interview, she had revealed secrets behind her flawless skin as she said: “Neutrogena's Rapid Wrinkle Repair Cream won't cause you to break out or cause you to get a rash. A lot of times, [wrinkle creams] can be too strong for my skin. It's a really great cream, and I give it to my friends of many different ages. And they're coming to me now saying, 'I need more.' It really does seem to make your skin supple and smooth. I'm getting on a plane tomorrow, and that's what I'll be using. I use it at night. You can use it for a week, and you can see something.”
Brad Pitt: The 58-year-old star made women go wild when he flaunted his six-pack abs in 2019’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’ In 2019, GQ reported that Pitt “used a semi-bodybuilding type workout” that helped him to get ready for ‘Fight Club’. The magazine stated: “Pitt’s workout was based on a training routine targeting only one muscle group per day. He did 3 sets of 15 reps per exercise and rested for 1 minute between sets. Using a considerable weight for each exercise, he was able to reach failure on his last rep but still keep good form. Pitt did four consecutive days of resistance training, followed by cardio to ensure that his body remained in a fat burning mode.”
Tess Daly: Even at the age of 53, Daly can easily beat any 20-year-old in fitness and beauty. The models’ Instagram account is full of her sexy and lively pics. So how does she maintain her youthness? In her interview, she said: “I cleanse, tone and moisturise religiously morning and night. I’m not particularly loyal to any brand – I’m lucky because I get sent lots of new brands to try. I’m a big believer in using SPF to protect the skin – don’t expose your skin to the sun’s rays, because that damage is pretty much irreversible! I’m a fan of hydration to keep skin looking dewy and glowing. Hydrated, luminous, glowing skin always looks healthy and fresh. Dehydrated skin is the enemy as far as I’m concerned because it never looks good – it looks dull and it’s ageing, so I plump up my skin with lots of moisturisers.”
Also, she disclosed her fitness routine. “I don’t like sweating much, so it would probably be yoga because that’s gentle. I do really enjoy swimming, and I like skipping and trampolining. We’ve got a little trampoline at home outside, and that’s great for getting your lymphatic system moving and for your circulation. Sometimes I’ll do five minutes of skipping at the start of the day – one minute on and one minute off, and it’s great, it really wakes up the system,” she added.
Julia Roberts: The 54-year-old reportedly swears by moisturizer and ChapStick. In her interviews, she had said: “Look, I'm happy if I have on moisturizer and ChapStick! When you're dressing three people besides yourself, something has to fall away. On a regular day, I'll just brush my teeth, wash my face, and apply sunblock. I'm a busy mom, and sometimes I just sunblock my kids and run outside and get my nose burned. So I've made a stronger effort to take care of myself.”
Hugh Jackman: Jackman got the ninth position in the poll by receiving 23 percent of the vote. ‘The Wolverine’ who will be 54 this year in October is reportedly very honest towards his workout routine. Men’s Health magazine quoted him saying: “I do no more than an hour – but the training is pretty intense.”
Also, Mike Ryan, personal trainer to Jackman, had once revealed: “It’s all about evolution. From one workout to the next I’ll always have something new to add to the equation. Our sessions are based on established principles, but we’ll always try and bring new ideas to the table.”
Helen Mirren: The oldest in the top ten list is Mirren, who at the age of 76 has changed the perception that you can’t be sexy in your old age. She has once said, “I love the word ‘swagger’ because I think swagger means I’m confident in myself, I’m presenting myself to the world, I’m enjoying the world around me. I think what is called the beauty industry should be called the swagger industry. We’re giving people swagger.”
