Watch: Jennifer Lopez poses naked for 53 birthday post
By now, we should be used to seeing women of all shapes and sizes celebrating their bodies in the way that they see fit. Yet somehow, even in 2022, it's still unusual to see women of a certain age wearing bikinis and owning their bodies.
That’s why, when a plethora of female 50-something ‘mid-life’ celebrities started ushering in a new era of body positivity online with several bikini-clad pics, we couldn’t help but take note.
Of course there is the small caveat that these celebrities are used to being in front of the camera, and many have access to some of the best personal trainers, chefs and nutritionists the world has to offer.
That being said, it's still very much welcome to see these women owning their bodies and posting their swimwear snaps on social media.
But it's not all about body image. These women appear to be thoroughly enjoying themselves and in the prime of their life.
"It's so good to see you happy and with amazing people by your side!” one fan commented underneath Jennifer Aniston's beach pics.
“Still bringing the heat” wrote one fan on Salma Hayek’s Instagram post.
"You're such a hottie mama, my god," Rumer Willis, Demi Moore's daughter, commented on her mum's bikini photo.
