Besides the obvious "Helen Mirren looks great for 70!" types, can you think of any actors who seemed to have stopped aging at a certain point in their career? As far as I'm concerned Patrick Stewart and Hulk Hogun both started their careers at 50 and seem to have stayed that way. And of course, Max von Sydow turned 80 some time in the mid 70s', with barely any difference from The Exorcist to Shutter Island.
Actors Who Don't Age
Same goes for Brad Pitt. He's only just now showing the passage of time. Also add to the "Black Don't Crack" file. Ving Rhames.
Robert Stack looked pretty much exactly the same from the 50's to the day he died, do a google image search if you don't believe me. I remember seeing him do a modern day interview for one of his early movies and could hardly believe it.
I'd say he aged quite a bit, but in a deliberate way. He ran with it and made being the suave older gent his 'thing'. It's a good plan if you can pull it off.
It has to be said that Cruise looks amazing for a guy about to turn 50, he literally just looks 35. I don't doubt that the surgeon's knife played no small part in that (and probably for a lot of these guys), but if so someone did some masterful work.
Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson have both looked the same for at least a decade (if not longer). Not sure if it's the makeup or the food genes.
Yeah I would say alot of these folks have aged so well thanks to some real Rembrandts of the plastic surgery world. Makes me wonder if that's why some stars go from amazing looking to haggard overnight. Just take a look at Robert Redford and Goldie Hawn. 20 years overnight.
That gag about his character on Parks and Recreations trying to live to be 150 years old doesn't sound so silly when you consider that Lowe is already 47.

Actor wise, Mike Starr stil looks like he's in his late 40's, and Danny Trejo has looked 50 for a very long time. Just a very muscular 50. Michael Rooker as well has looked about 40 for a while now. Guy looks to be in amazing shape too.
Aside from eating one of those Altered Beast power-ups at some point, Trent Reznor could pass for 10-15 years younger easy.
Haven't seen anything super recent of Bruce but in Red he seemed to be about the same age as he was in Pulp Fiction. 15 years is a good stretch. Another actress who hasn't stopped aging but is aging in slow motion is Demi Moore. Isn't she about to be 50?
Black don't crack, but it does deform. She doesn't look bad (aside from the hair and that fucked up dress which does her absolutely no favors) but Bassett is noticeably flabbier. Also, someone earlier mentioned Denzel Washington. Same thing, he still looks good, and of his recent movies where he sports a paunchier look are more about the character than anything else, but the years have made a distinct difference.
I do think Val Kilmer would still look great today if he hadn't said "fuck it" when he came this close to not pulling into that KFC somewhere back in 2003-2004. He's been camped just outside the premises ever since.
