They've bared their souls and their bodies on the
big screen. Having surpassed the four-decade mark, these women have
shown Hollywood they're not leaving town any time soon.Captions by Mark Deming
Jennifer Aniston in 'We're The Millers'
Almost twenty years after she broke through as the sexy gal on
"Friends," Jennifer Aniston is as daring as ever. The 44-year-old
actress plays a stripper in the upcoming comedy "We're The Millers," and
puts her character's professional talents on display in one
Nicole Kidman in 'The Paperboy'
Nicole Kidman's cool, refined beauty has been her calling card
throughout her career, but she's not afraid to turn up the heat in the
right role. In 2012's "The Paperboy," she played a woman in love with a

Marissa Tomei in 'The Wrestler'

Wrestler." The role earned Tomei another Academy Award nomination at the
age of 44

52-year-old actress, who has spoken out against plastic surgery, really
went for it in 2009's "Chloe." Moore plays a woman who falls into a
relationship with an escort (played by twenty-something Amanda Seyfried)
hired to seduce her husband.
Demi Moore in 'Charlie's Angels II: Full Throttle'
Demi Moore hadn't starred in a movie in three years when she signed on
for 2003's "Charlie's Angels II: Full Throttle," and she was clearly
determined to make the most of her big comeback. Playing the villainous
former angel, Madison Lee, Moore showed she could dish out the
butt-kicking action just like her co-stars Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore,
and Lucy Liu – and at 41, she looked just as good ..
