We tend to focus on the young and beautiful when it comes to gossip, but this week it was all about the older and beautiful making news.
"I think that's why Meryl Streep is working so much, because she looks like a woman we can all relate to," she tells Tatler magazine. "I look at her and I think, 'I'm chasing my kids, I've moved my parents in with me, I'm coping with food spills—that looks like me in real life.' Meryl looks like an unmade bed, and that's what I look like. To me, that looks true."
Oh yes, Sharon Stone, the only reason Meryl Streep gets more jobs than you is not because of her talent but because of her looks. And they're plain looks, at that! Good thinking!
Next up: Cher!
The diva was photographed on the set of her new film Burlesque, a movie that sounds pretty awesome. Cher plays a former dancer turned Hollywood burlesque club owner, Kristen Bell and Christina Aguilera are rival dancers, Alan Cumming is master of ceremonies at the club, and Stanley Tucci is in there too. Anyway, it's always fun to see Cher—she and Xtina appear to be getting along.
As for the always elegant Helen Mirren, her week started off pretty great. She got a shout-out in Mariah Carey's drunk Palm Springs Festival speech—probably a bigger honor than the actual Career Achievement Award she was there to accept. The queen was also on Ellen, where she addressed her hot bikini pictures. She says she only looked that good because she was posing and holding her stomach in.
And then there's newly single 63-year-old Susan Sarandon, who seems to be enjoying herself. Her rumored love interest is said to be 32-year-old Jonathan Bricklin, the owner of a pingpong social club in which she's an investor. The two have been spotted around NYC drinking tequila and Jameson in the A.M.
It's probably safe to say jaguars are the new cougars, and that works for us. These ladies have a certain sass Young Hollywood just can't compete with.
Now that we've covered the older ladies, how about some older men? Check out George Clooney in our Big Pic gallery.
