Favorite Celebrities Turning 50 In 2018

Will Smith

Will Smith joined the club on September 25 by bungee jumping out of a helicopter over the Grand Canyon for charity! He wasn’t going to let age hold him back from extreme sports. The only actor to star in eight consecutive films earning over $100 million, Will is even still one of the most successful actors by Forbes. He has his phenomenal acting abilities to thank for that!

Currently preparing to be the one and only Genie in the live-action adaption of Aladdin (just one of his upcoming projects), the actor, rapper, and producer first gained popularity for the TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990-96). ­ Will is also known for films such as Independence Day (1996), Men in Black (1997), Ali (2001), Hitch (2005), The Pursuit of Happiness (2006), I Am Legend (2007) and Suicide Squad (2016).

Naomi Watts

We will be seeing her in the next Game Of Thrones project – the prequel series. Fun Fun Fun.

Just a few days after Will’s birthday, Naomi Watts celebrated hers on Sept. 28. She brought in her fiftieth year by riding a camel in Morocco. She posted a picture of her expedition on Instagram saying, “A milestone and extraordinary moment. So grateful for all my friends and family who shared this experience with me. Memories forever. And thank you to everyone for all my birthday wishes. Huge gratitude… truly overwhelming week.”

Watts’ career started slowly, beginning with the 1986 film For Love Alone. “At first, everything was fantastic and doors were opened to me. But some people who I met through Nicole [Kidman], who had been all over me, had difficulty remembering my name when we next met. There were a lot of promises, but nothing actually came off. I ran out of money and became quite lonely, but Nic gave me company and encouragement to carry on.” Things weren’t going too great for her at the start.

But in the early 2000s, Watts’ career took off at last. Her role in Mulholland Drive first brought the award-nominated actress into the spotlight. The Academy Award-nominated actress first gained prominence for Mulholland Drive in 2001. Afterwards, her popularity grew in films such as The Ring (2002), 21 Grams (2003), I Heart Huckabees (2004), King Kong (2005), J. Edgar (2011), The Impossible (2012) and The Glass Castle (2017).
