Susan Sarandon got some flack for her recent revealing look at the SAG Awards, with TV host Piers Morgan questioning if the bold ensemble was appropriate for presenting an “In Memoriam” tribute. Others were supportive, calling the scrutiny ageism, and applauding the 69-year-old for her body confidence. Whether you loved it or loathed it, one thing can’t be disputed: she certainly caught our attention … and our wandering eyes. Even actress Kate Winslet couldn’t keep her eyes (and hands) away from Sarandon‘s assets.
And she’s not the only post-50 celeb to get her cleavage noticed. Cuba Gooding Jr. recently gushed over his “Shadowboxer” co-star, Helen Mirren’s, best body part — her “most beautiful breasts.”
All this got us thinking about older women and cleavage. There are people on both sides of the debate — those who find it distasteful and those who think body confidence at any age is sexy. We’re of the latter. Here are some photos to put your doubts to rest.
The actress proudly bared her cleavage at the SAG Awards last weekend and took a lighthearted swipe back at Piers Morgan
, who said her look was less than appropriate, in the best way possible. The actress tweeted an older photo of herself in a bra and dedicated it to the TV host.
Field has embraced aging and won’t let a number define how she feels. “Age is this thing that happens to you. It happens to your body and your face, but people are still in here. And the 16-year-old girl is still in here. The difference is my face is sagging and my body is not the same… but Im still here,” she told Variety
At 70, Hawn sometimes still could be mistaken for her daughter, Kate Hudson’s, twin. Hawn has said aging is “all in your mind.”
