Best Celeb Beach Bodies Over 40

  • Best Celeb Beach Bodies Over 40 Who said you had to be in your twenties to look stunning in a bathing suit? If that’s what you think, then step back—we can name plenty of celebs whose beach-ready bods will blow you out of the water. And yes, they are all over 40.

    So move over, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Whether it’s thanks to a clean diet or a killer exercise routine, these fortysomething celebs have 10 of the hottest beach bodies around:
  • Jennifer Aniston Even in a mismatched bikini, the ‘Just Go With It’ star really heated things up by the pool on a holiday in Mexico. What’s Aniston’s secret? Private lessons with renowned yoga instructor, Mandy Ingber. “[Yoga] completely changed my life,” Aniston, 42, gushed.

    Okay, so we all can’t afford a celeb personal trainer. But for $15, we can buy Ingber’s Yogalosophy instructional DVD and get to work Aniston-style in our living rooms.
  • Courteney Cox Cox has sported lingere and bared all on the sitcom ‘Cougar Town’, so it’s no surprise to us that she can wow onlookers on the beach. The 47-year-old mom keeps her body bikini ready by working out with her trainer Michele Lovitt. Squats with kettlebells and one-legged lifts are just a few of Cox’s go-to moves. She also sticks to a healthy, low-carb diet.
  • Hugh Jackman Holy abs! Something tells us that Hugh, 42, didn’t miss a single day at the gym in preparation for reprising his role as Wolverine in ‘X-Men: First Class’. If he didn’t wear a shirt in every single one of his movies, we certainly wouldn’t put up a fight.
  • Demi Moore Ms. Kutcher left little to be imagined—but a ton to be envious of—when she wore a tiny black bikini on her Caribbean vacation with her hubby. While Moore, 48, has reportedly stopped following a strict diet in order to set a healthy example for her daughters, she still kicks her butt at the gym with a mix of pilates, cardio and yoga. (With abs, legs and arms like that, we’re not surprised!)
  • Bethenny Frankel The Skinnygirl mastermind hit the sand in a bikini and showed off her super-toned tummy. And we can tell you right now that that bod is not just in thanks to low-cal cocktails. Even with her busy schedule, Frankel, 40, does the elliptical machine and yoga two-to-three times a week. “The Plank position is an amazing ab exercise!” the reality star told ‘US Weekly’.
  • Gerard Butler Well hello there, Mr. Butler. The 41-year-old star of ‘The Bounty Hunter’ took a casual shirtless stroll along the beach in Malibu. And okay, we’ll admit it—we may or may not be pretending that he’s waving to us.
  • Gwen Stefani Look at that rock-star bod! Stefani, 41, looked stunning when she showed off her toned abs in a teeny polka dot bikini. The mother of two has admitted that she had to work hard running and lifting weights to keep that baby weight off. Well, it looks like it’s working!
  • Sheryl Crow Crow, 49, hasn’t always had it easy. Back in 2006, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to undergo radiation. After a full recovery, the Grammy-Award winning singer took charge of her health and began cooking and eating healthier.

    But how did she get pipes and abs like that? To get bikini ready, Crow has admitted to doing P90X, the extremely rigorous at-home fitness system. Hey Sheryl, we certainly aren’t brave enough to try it, but more power to you! You look great!
  • Matthew McConaughey No shirt, no problem. The king of romantic comedies left his T-shirt at home and went for a midday jog along the beach in Malibu. McConaughey, 41, looked toned, bronzed and beach ready, and we can’t stop staring. But honestly, can you blame us?
