Live Poll: The Most Wonderful Hollywood Actress Aged 55+

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've put them all to the list except Oprah, because she's already on the first list. About the "The list is so white"-thing: No black, Asien or Mexican suggestions? ;)

No, I didn't find any women of color except Winfrey and a few that were already on your list. Rosie Perez almost makes it: she'll be 55 in a few months. 

One of the things about certain lists is that it can be difficult to reach diversity simply because of the nature of the changing movie industry. Women, people of color, and  minorities, such as openly LGBTQ persons, can be difficult to find for some lists because they are just starting to break into the "old (straight, white) boys' club." I think that's happening here because while most of the actors in their 50's belong to Generation X, most of this group of actors are Baby Boomers and when they were getting their start, the movie industry utilized the talents of a more narrow group. For instance, Peter Dinklage finds a good deal of work these days - perhaps not enough but, for most of the Twentieth Century, he probably would have been much more marginalized despite his impressive skill. 

That's cool that you're making a part two. I hope my suggestions help with that list. : )

Some foreign (non-English) beauties should be added to this list.

Since this poll's title specifically mentions Hollywood, I believe there's enough material for two polls.

At all:
It's nice to come back from work and find such fun. :)
Thank you, specially for suggesting and having interest in this subject.

Dibyayan:
It's ok for me, when you do some non-Hollywood-poll of the same subject.
The idea then would be to assemble all actresses that never worked in
(for) Hollywood. Or just in minor roles or just in one or two roles, but have
a big filmography. That's just what I think about. Feel free to use it. I would
be honored to vote your poll. :D Perhaps I would have a suggestion.

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.
