3. Resse Witherspoon

We don’t know how they do it, but there are people who are young forever, and lovely Resse is one of them. Back in 1994 little Resse Witherspoon had a real vintage Hollywood look.

9. Jennifer Lopez

She is 49 today if you were wondering. Ever since she was a little kid she had just one dream – to be like Rita Moreno. Moreno is a famous face in ‘West Side Story’.

Ever since she saw that movie Jennifer wanted to do that – to sing, dance and act. And today? Checked, checked, and checked.

10. Nicki Minaj
