The charismatic wife of the POTUS, Michelle Obama turned 50 January 17th, and doesnt she look years younger, healthier and dare I say sexy? :) Here are some other celebrities who are already 50 or are turning 50 this year.
Sharing a name as well as a birthdate with Michelle Obama is Michelle Fairley., an award winning very talented actress. She looks beautiful, healthy and classy
Sandra's "Speed" co-star Keanu Reeves is also celebrating the 50-year milestone this year. While he looks like he hasn't aged a bit, he told GQ magazine in 2012 that his body definitely feels older.
"My knees are well aware of it," he told the mag. "Mortality is very different when you're 20 to when you're 50."
Elle Macpherson definitely seems to have found the fountain of youth. And while some might be daunted by turning 50 in March, the supermodel doesn't seem to have a care in the world about her next big birthday.
"'It doesn't bother me becoming 50 at all, the alternative is death, so that is not an option," she told Contact Music in May 2012. "I rather like the idea of flowing on with life. I have had amazing life experiences and hopefully another 50 years of experiences ahead of me.''
"Friends" star Courtney Cox will also be making the journey into her fifties in June. But this birthday is one that she admits she isn't ready for at all.
"That's gonna be brutal," she told New You magazine in January 2012. "I'm not that interested in that! That sounds different. It feels different."
Mena: I really like Elle's response!!
