    Jerry Hall, 60: The leggy, Texas-born former supermodel (and mother of four with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger) tied the knot in March with media mogul Rupert Murdoch, 85. Based on our scan of Hall’s prior comments, their age gap should pose no barrier: “I prefer older men,” she once said. “I look better next to them.”

    Montel Williams, 60: Having survived both Marine Corps boot camp and the U.S. Naval Academy, it was a cinch for Williams to weather 17 seasons as host of his namesake TV talk show (1991-2008), winning an Emmy in the process. Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, today he’s the national spokesman for Partnership for Prescription Assistance, which provides free or low-cost prescription drugs to low-income patients.

    Sylvester Stallone, 70: By reprising his career-defining role in last year’s Creed, the Hollywood A-lister — who rose to fame in 1976 as an underdog boxer in Rocky — proved he still has the eye of the tiger. Not only did Creed net Stallone his third Oscar nomination, but he will continue the franchise with a sequel in 2017.

    Tom Hanks, 60: Go on, find us an actor who’s been more consistently excellent than this boomer answer to Jimmy Stewart! Hanks has four films coming out in 2016, including his third appearance as Harvard professor Robert Langdon (in The Da Vinci Code sequel Inferno) and a star turn — literally — as the pilot who safely landed a US Airways jet on the Hudson River in Clint Eastwood’s Sully.

    Martina McBride, 50: The Kansas native — and four-time Country Music Association award winner for female vocalist of the year — is best known for the activist lyrics in such Grammy-nominated hits as "Independence Day" and "A Broken Wing," which speak out against domestic abuse. McBride characterizes the songs on her latest album, Reckless, as being about “love, life, hope, loss, leaving and coming home.”

    Harry Dean Stanton, 90: The colorful actor — a Kentucky-born World War II Navy vet — has been a staple in movies for the last 60 years, appearing in everything from Cool Hand Luke and The Godfather Part II to Pretty in Pink and The Green Mile. Talk about being born to the role: “I play myself all the time,” Stanton says, “on camera and off. What else can I do?”

    Linda Ronstadt, 70: Her soulful cover versions of “You’re No Good” and “When Will I Be Loved?” got under our skin in the ’70s, and even President Obama has whispered he had a crush on her. Ronstadt’s singing voice has been silenced, but her spirit is strong: “You don’t forget you have Parkinson’s disease,” she says of the diagnosis she revealed to AARP in 2013, “especially in the shower. If you’re not paying attention, you fall down.”

    Norman Jewison, 90: The Toronto-born film director took a stand against racism with In the Heat of the Night, his 1967 Oscar winner. Two decades later, he guided Cher to a best-actress Oscar with the romantic comedy Moonstruck. Jewison follows a commonsense formula for success: “I’m not too excited about watching a huge explosion. I’m more interested in people and characters.”
