POST 50

Look Who's Turning 50 In 2016

Happy birthday!

Fifty has never looked better, what with sexy celebs from Brad Pitt to Johnny Depp to Elle Macpherson joining the post-50 club in the last year. But just when we thought 50 couldn't get any better, we have a new crop of Gen-Xers celebrating their milestone birthdays, who are just as easy on the eyes as they are talented. 

They were born five decades ago in 1966, when "Star Trek" and "Batman" premiered on TV and the Academy Awards were broadcast for the first time in color. Here are just some of the celebs turning the big 5-0 in 2016, including one of our favorite "Friends," a famous Bond girl and quite possibly the best known supermodel of all time.
