From Madonna’s recent unrecognisable looks to Tom Cruise’s changing appearance, it seems there are a number of middle-aged celebrities nowadays who are eager to hold back the years.

However some stars have managed to stay looking youthful without resorting to too many nips and tucks.
Among those who still look fabulous, having apparently aged gracefully, are Minnie Driver, Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Eddie Murphy.

Speaking to Body+Soul Magazine, the producer said that skincare makes her feel good, but so does accepting the natural passing of time.
‘I was lucky to have women in my life who loved ageing and getting older – like my mother and grandmother – and I saw it wasn’t something that should be looked at like a setback,’ Reese told the publication.
‘There’s something empowering about ageing gracefully.’
Reese went on to say that watching her mother do her skincare and makeup routine taught her that self-esteem can be gained from self care.
The Cruel Intentions star also explained that her makeup tips these days come from her lookalike daughter, Ava, 23.
‘She actually teaches me. She’s so knowledgeable about skin care and make-up.
‘She comes from a generation of YouTube tutorials and these kids are very savvy about product and application. So I learn a lot from her,’ Reese said.

She told the host that ‘everything is really different now’ in comparison to when she started her career.
She said: ‘I don’t think the acting is hard to survive. I think getting old and being a known quantity where youth and newness is valued and favoured over oldness and a known quantity’.
‘It’s very different now – it feels like a very different time for people who do what I do if you’re a woman.’

The former People’s Sexiest Man Alive told the outlet that people often expect his ‘secret’ to be related to a restrictive diet or intense, top-secret workout regimen.
‘People ask me, ‘Can you send me your meal plan? How many times a week do you work out?
‘Do you drink? Do you eat carbs? Do you have a cheat day?” Rudd recalled.
Although he is dedicated to daily cardio and a minimum of three-days of weight lifting, Rudd believes that the ‘most important part of training is sleep.’
‘People will set their alarm and then sleep for four hours and they’ll get up so that they can train. They’re doing themselves a disservice. If you can somehow get eight hours of sleep . . .’ he explained.

‘It’s about liberating yourself from all that.
