4. ANGELA BASSETT

It's fitting that Bassett's breakthrough role was another seriously hot lady over fifty: Tina Turner in the 1993 biopic What's Love Got to Do With It. This summer, the 52-year old played Dr. Amanda Waller in Green Lantern, and we're still wondering why Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) chose his childhood sweetheart (played by Blake Lively) over trying to bag someone with, you know, more "experience."
