PEOPLE Magazine 40th Anniversary

Look Who's Turning 40

From Leonardo DiCaprio and Victoria Beckham to Hello Kitty and Happy Days, see who's celebrating the milestone with PEOPLE

PENÉLOPE CRUZ

The Oscar winner declared that "life begins at 40," and that seems to be true for the beauty, who has a bustling family life (with hubby Javier Bardem and their two kids, Leonardo, 3, and Luna, 1) and an equally busy career. Cruz also believes in aging gracefully, telling Elle, "My definition of beauty is without rules. It can be the face of a beautiful 90-year-old woman that is full of stories and emotion. Beauty is what somebody's eyes communicate."
