Cher – 73 years old
From teenaged session singer to Sonny Bono‘s wife and on-stage partner to TV fashion plate and actress, Cherilyn Sarkesian La Pierre is a true showbiz legend. “I Got You Babe” made Sonny & Cher stars. A dozen more hits, some solo, followed in the next decade. Their CBS variety series widened their appeal. Cher’s interest in acting survived the couple’s critically panned movies Good Times and Chastity, and bloomed in the ’80s with Mask, Silkwood and Moonstruck, for which she won a Best Actress Oscar. Her 1999 hit “Believe” hit number-one in dozens of countries and won the Best Dance Record Grammy.
