Stars who have still got it at 70

Jane Fonda became an international sex symbol when she starred as a sexy intergalactic detective in 1968 science fiction film Barbarella. Forty-three years later, Jane wants to make a sequel to the hit movie, despite being a 73-year-old grandmother.

In a world increasingly obsessed with youth, it is refreshing to see Jane and other older beauties like Raquel Welch, Sophia Loren and Julie Andrews still turning heads well into their 70s.

Here is our list of striking septuagenarians who can’t seem to stop looking fabulous.
