The Top 10 GILFs

March 16, 2009

You’ve heard of MILFs and cougars, but what about women who are even older and still look hot? Enter the GILF (a.k.a. Grandmas I’d Like to F***). Now it may be improper to have impure thoughts about someone’s grandma, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. These sexy seniors defy age and still look fine, especially when you consider how frickin’ old they are.

Goldie Hawn is like a big bottle of bubbly champagne. Goldie burst onto the scene in the 1967 television comedy Good Morning, World. On the show she played a stereotypical blonde who would parade around in a skimpy bikini. Two years later she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the film Cactus Flower. These days the 63-year-old has been missing from the silver screen, but she spends her time being a bangin’ hot granny.

Suzanne Somers is still "working it" at age 62. The Three’s Company star proves that all you need to look young is blonde hair, a good tan, and raccoon eyes.  The secret to Suzanne’s youthful look might be due to bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. She is a big fan of the alternative menopause treatment and even wrote a book on the subject called Ageless: The Naked Truth About Bioidentical Hormones.  Menopause is hardly a sexy subject, so here’s hoping she doesn't talk about it on a date.

8. Olivia Newton-John

If you have a thing for much older women, Olivia Newton-John might be the one that you want. At 60 years of age, Olivia is the baby of the list. She looks like a slightly older version of Christine Brinkley (who looks smoking hot for her age). The Aussie actor/singer is obviously keeping physical.

7. Faye Dunaway

It’s hard to believe that Faye Dunaway is approaching 70. The award-winning actress and star of such films as Bonnie and Clyde, Chinatown, and Network is doing a Benjamin Button and managing to age backwards. She’s obviously had a little help from a surgeon’s scalpel, but who cares. In Hollywood, getting plastic surgery is like going to the dentist.

6. Cher

Most guys wouldn’t be caught dead saying Cher is hot, let alone admitting they knew who the heck she is. The singer, who has had a top 10 single in every decade since the 1960s, looks pretty good for an old timer. Yes, she’s had a ton of work and her face looks like it’s been under the knife, ironed out, and puffed up again. But dang, this lady is 62. She looks better now than she did 20 years ago when she was in Moonstruck.

5. Cheryl Tiegs

Cheryl Tiegs is famous for her association with Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. She appeared on the cover of the magazine in 1970, 1975, and 1983. These days, Cheryl still works as a model and hosts television shows such as Living with Ed and True Beauty. The former bikini model has aged gracefully and looks far younger than her 61 years. She probably still looks good in a bikini. Not too many people can say that about their grandmother.

4. Susan Lucci

Susan Lucci is a daytime television star who has been on television pretty much since it was invented. She has starred in the soap All My Children since it first hit the airwaves in 1970 and, last year, the 62-year-old fox competed in the seventh season of Dancing with the Stars. This lady is in amazing shape and could easily pass for 40.

3. Raquel Welch

Raquel Welch must have super powers and be able to stop time. At 68, she is one of the oldest women on this list, but she doesn’t seem to age. Raquel got her start in showbiz by winning beauty pageants. She was crowned "Miss Fairest of the Fair" at the San Diego County Fair in 1957 and won the “Maid of California” in 1958. Raquel looks so good these days that she’d have a fighting chance of reclaiming one of those crowns today, some 50 years later. Raquel has maintained her youthful look by following a strict diet and exercise routine. Some of those secrets can probably be found in her 1984 book The Raquel Welch Total Beauty and Fitness Program. This might be the answer to eternal youth.

The classy journalist with the sultry voice makes getting out of bed each day a little easier. The co-anchor of Good Morning America has kept America informed for decades. Her intellect, calm demeanor, and pretty face are a soothing presence in today’s hectic world. The 62-year-old was recently ranked the 62nd most powerful woman in the world by Forbes. As Paris Hilton would say, "That's hot!"

1. Helen Mirren

Dame Helen Mirren is a sexpot. The Academy Award-winning British actor oozes sexuality and natural beauty on the silver screen. Last year, pictures of her wearing a bikini hit the web and she was officially declared “smoking hot.” Mirren once famously said in an interview that she always sets her alarm clock an hour before she has to wake up, so she can make love to her husband. When it comes to the over-60 set, Helen Mirren is in a league of her own.
