Intro:

A look in modern media. There is a common sense of delusion about
everybody has to be young. Commercials mostly show 25 year old anorexia
models without facial wrinkles, completely clean and they look like a perfect designed cyborg, made of plastic.

When you look at Sir Sean Connery or Sean Bean you might realize that some people don't have to follow that delusion, because of their rich and lovely personality. They mature like an extraordinary good vine, e.g. from Petrus vineyards. The older they get, the better they look, the more attractive they are. This also counts for many actresses. Now look at the actresses 55+ of age. Which of these actresses below did most grow to you heart or simply which of them do you most admire? (Please avoid to let their sense of taste for clothing or makeup at events influence your decision.) Tell me about her.

Rules:

She has to be or have been popular.
She should be 55+ (I don't count on a few weeks difference, but not more than 3 month)
She should still live, the day it really becomes a poll. (in case of accidents, etc.)
She should also be a movie actress

I had no idea Sandra Bullock was over 55 - she looks great!  So does Elvira.

I suggest Julia Duffy, of Newhart/Designing Women.  https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0240564/
Not only has she aged well, she is a very talented and funny actress.

Give me time. I think she's a good and honorable cadidate when it comes to black life in media. Now I'm about to kick another candidate, but I'd rather consider this after next sleeping period. ;)

I'll put her to the list. My problem now is to decide, which of these strong women has to quit because of the 35 options limitation. ;)

I love that poll. It seems that attitude towards age slowly shifts and that's great.

For now it's just a suggestion. I hope it will become a poll. It's seems to be popular, when I look at the many suggestions of other users. :D

Thank you for your suggestion. I'm not really sure about her when I look at the other actresses on the list. I gotta think of it a time.

When I think of "getting old," I think 70 or 75+. Also, are you going to do a list for men?

Anyway, may I suggest a few edits? ('below in bold) They're grammatical except that I would definitely cut "This also counts for many actresses" for a few reasons. I'd also cut "below" from the last sentence?

Growing old is a pain for many people; some even say the main part of life is over at 60. But some people don't count on their age; they don't despair and enjoy their life better than before. When you look at people such as Sir Sean Connery or Sean Bean, you might realize that growing old can be nice when you have a rich and lovely personality. Now look at these actresses 55+ of age. Which of them is your favorite?

Thanks. : )

Done. Interpunction is a hard thing to do in English. G has much more commas and lesser semikolons, but I'm still learning. ;)

ruby & NIA:
Ok, I'll do a list for men. ;)

While the list includes several of my favorite actresses, I would place Jamie Lee Curtis at the top. I have always enjoyed her horror film roles , and I find several of her comedy roles (such as "Trading Places" and "True Lies") to be top-tier. 

I watced films with her when I was 10-years-old and I am reaching middle-age She has always kept me entertained in the intervening decades.
