Kate Beckinsale and 9 other women we can't believe are 40

Posted by , 17 June 2013



Name: Shannon Elizabeth

Age: 39 (40 in September)

Why we love her: Shannon Elizabeth first came to our attention, for want of a better phrase, in the 1999 classic that is American Pie.

Playing Czech exchange student Nadia in the first two American Pie films, and reprising the role later on in American Reunion, Shannon helped create some of the sexiest, and most cringe-inducing, moments in teen film history.

And now she's on the cusp of 40. Which only serves to make us feel considerably not-that-young anymore. Judging by the above photo, though, hitting middle age isn't such a terrible thought after all.
