Turning 50 is one of life’s biggest milestones. Finally, you’re closer to 100 than you are to0. At this age, many are already parents, some are grandparents, while others have focused to put all their effort into their careers instead. For celebrities, however, age is only a number with many stars sparkling as brightly as they ever have before.
It doesn’t matter what the reason is because frankly, we like our favorite stars to grow old with us regardless of how they choose to preserve (or enhance) their renown looks.
2018 was a year many of our favorite celebrities entered the 50s. From the silver screen to the small screen, icons of the 80s, 90s, 2000s and today all reached the milestone with several surprising entries on this list. With 2019 just around the corner, let us look at the rich and famous who celebrated the big 5-0 this year.
Take for example, Naomi Watts and Will Smith.
You would never know she’s 50, would you? And you’d be more surprised to know that she’ll be taking part in the next Game Of Thrones new project – The prequel series. It’s still a secret so no one knows anything about it.
English actress Naomi Watts turned 50 on 28 September and celebrated the milestone by riding a camel in the Sahara Desert in Morocco. She captioned a photo of the experience, “A milestone and extraordinary moment. So grateful for all my friends and family who shared this experience with me. Memories forever. And thank you to everyone for all my birthday wishes. Huge gratitude… truly overwhelming week.”
The actress began her acting career in Australian films and television series, before moving to the United States where she starred in a series of lesser known films. She came to attention after being cast in the lead role in the 2001 film Mulholland Drive.
The actress has gone onto star in several successful films since, such as The Ring, 21 Grams, I Heart Huckabees, King Kong, Eastern Promises, The International, Fair Game, J. Edgar, and The Impossible.
