From Betty to Helen: Our Favorite Stars Over The Age of 60

Hollywood is filled with too many hot twenty-something, talented 30 year olds, and respected talents in their 40's and 50's, but what about the stars that are pushing it over the hill, and I mean waaayyy over the hill? These are the sexiest sexagenarions, the awesome old people and just our favorite over 60 stars.

These are our favorite "Over-60" stars:

Helen Mirren: Err, I mean, DAME Helen Mirren, which means she's a knight, like a lady knight, and while I don't know what that means, it's probably really cool. Helen Mirren was voted the Sexiest Lady over the age 60 by and when Hollyscoop asked her about the honor she joked, "[It] sucks, I can't tell you. So depressed." The gracious 66 year-old has a hot bod too, which inspired SNL to create a digital short called "Helen Mirren's Boobs."

Kirstie Alley: I kind of forgot about Kirstie Alley for a while but then she appeared on "Dancing With The Stars" reportedly lost 100 pounds and is now strutting her stuff like some kind of 60-year-old show pony. Don't get me wrong, she looks super hot and is doing runway shows during fashion week for designer Zang Toi, she also is taking full advantage of her hotter-cougar status saying, "This is what I think about sex. I think it's fun to hookup every night for six months...Then it's time to move on!"

Regis Philbin: Did you know that Regis Philbin's middle name is Francis Xavier? Who knew he was hiding that wild child between Regis and Philbin? Today it was announced that Regis just broke the Guinness World Record for most time spent in front of a television camera, 16,746 hours to be exact. At 80 years old, Regis Philbin might finally be retiring, his last day hosting his iconic show "Live with Regis and Kelly" will be November 18, 2011. I plan on crying in a tub of Ben and Jerry's ice cream that day as my cosmic grandpa figure leaves live television that morning.

Betty White: Betty white is a bad-ass. At 89 years old she is hands down the funniest living American. There's a 93 year old man that I hear has some great stand-up material, but still, Betty White wins always. White rocketed to fame on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and years later on "The Golden Girls." In January 2010 a Facebook petition called "Betty White to Host SNL (Please)" surfaced and succeeded in getting Betty White to host the May 8, 2010 show. That episode was the highest rated episode in two years for SNL. Hollyscoop asked "Fringe" cutie Joshua Jackson who would win in a battle of hotness, Betty White or Sofia Vergara, "Like physically, you never bet against Betty White," he dished.

Clint Eastwood: 79 year old Clint Eastwood is as bad-ass as Regis Philbin is jolly. The old actor-turned-director with the squinty eyes and grizzled face served during the Korean War, created the iconic Dirty Harry character and is a vegan!? He's such a fierce old dude, that I'm shocked he'd rather chow down on a tofu scramble than I dunno, some venison he wrangled to death with his bare hands.

Goldie Hawn: Kate Hudson is so lucky. If she ever fears that her looks might go away she just has to look at her mother and sigh with relief that she'll still look like a cheerleader even when she's 65. Also, did you know she was that old? Put Kate and Goldie side by side and watch the waiters, doormen, and fed ex guys lining up with "Wow, you must be sisters, right?"

Cher: Cher is 65 y'all and she's still rocking rhinestone leotards and leather jackets like it's 1982. She's also said to be working on a new album to be released this year and says the music is going to be "all dance." You know Cher is all up in the club grinding on the dance floor like some kind of Studio City hoodrat, let's be real.

Meryl Streep: Streep is "only" 62 (for this list, that's pretty young) but she's just so fabulous, I had to include her. This woman probably floats around on a cloud because walking is just so pedestrian. Streep is basically the actress’ actress, but the younger generations probably know her best as the ice-queen Anna Wintour character from "The Devil Wears Prada" Amanda Seyfried's mom in "Mama Mia" and Steve Martin's f-ck buddy in "It's Complicated."
