I might be putting a little too fine a point on things here, but I swear I liked Terri Hatcher much more BEFORE Desperate Housewives hit.
She's still in terrific shape, but her face looks strange these days, especially around the eyes.
She was at her BEST in a 1989 Kevin Bacon movie called "The Big Picture". She played a sexy actress who flirted with aspiring screenwriter Bacon. Bacon had a fantasy about her in which she looked AMAZING.
She was also hot in the '91 flick "Soapdish" AND in that memorable Seinfeld episode from 1993:
"They're real... and they're spectacular."
But, hey, this is about older actresses and she's still slammin. Power to her for having great success as a "TV Babe" at age 40
