    Actress Angela Bassett, 57, proved she is an ageless beauty when she showed up at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards looking the same as she did at the 1994 Globes when she won for What's Love Got to Do with It.

    Sporting her trademark blonde locks and muted smile, Reese Witherspoon, now 39, makes posing on the red carpet look easy at the 2002 premiere of Sweet Home Alabama and then again at the 2015 Glamour of the Year Awards.

    She's a bit more tan these days, but, otherwise, Gwyneth Paltrow, 43, hasn't changed much from 1998 to 2016.

    The now 42-year-old Kate Beckinsale perfected her smoldering red carpet look at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards and brought it back for the 2016 Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards.

    We'd love to know what Carol star Cate Blanchett, seen here at the 2000 premiere of The Aviator and the 2016 Palm Springs International Film Festival, is doing to stay so young-looking at the age of 46!

  • Penelope Cruz

    The biggest difference between 2005 Penelope Cruz and the 2016 version? The 41-year-old is now a married mom of two.

    If anything, we think Sandra Bullock, 51, looks better at the 2015 premiere of Our Brand Is Crisis than she did at the the 2001 premiere of Miss Congeniality.

    Damn, Jennifer Lopez! The 46-year-old is still just as smoking hot on the red carpet in 2016 as she was back in 2000.

  • Halle Berry

    While she is no longer taking film roles that require latex bodysuits, we bet 49-year-old Halle Berry, pictured at left in 2004 and on the right in 2016, could still probably fit into her Catwoman suit and look just as great.

  • Julia Roberts

    The Julia Roberts photo on the left was taken at the 2001 People's Choice Awards and the one on the right at the 2015 SAG Awards. But, if we didn't know better, we'd think the actress, 48, was photographed just weeks apart in these pics.

  • Julianne Moore

    Is she drinking a magic serum to stay so young and fresh? Julianne Moore looks just as beautiful at the 2016 Golden Globes as she did at the 2004 Oscars.

    Talk about being pretty in pink! Salma Hayek, 49, looks amazing in a cotton candy colored dress at the 2002 premiere of Frida and then again thirteen years later at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in 2015.

    At 46, Nicole Kidman isn't afraid of a plunging neckline. Thirteen years earlier, the actress picked a more conservative dress for the 2003 SAG Awards.

  • Uma Thurman

    While some have suspected Uma Thurman of surgically tweaking her appearance in recent years, we think whatever beauty routine the actress has adopted has paid off! The 45-year-old actress has the same glow in both 2001 and in 2015.

  • Catherine Zeta-Jones

    The transition between age 31 and 46 could be a tricky one for some actresses, but seemingly not for Catherine Zeta-Jones who attended the SNL 40th Anniversary Celebration in 2015, looking like her 2001 self.

    It's hard to believe thirteen years passed in between these photos of 45-year-old Requiem for a Dream actress Jennifer Connelly, seen here in 2003 and 2016.
