Risky Roles Over 40

They've bared their souls and their bodies on the big screen. Having surpassed the four-decade mark, these women have shown Hollywood they're not leaving town any time soon.Captions by Mark Deming



Jennifer Aniston in 'We're The Millers'
Almost twenty years after she broke through as the sexy gal on "Friends," Jennifer Aniston is as daring as ever. The 44-year-old actress plays a stripper in the upcoming comedy "We're The Millers," and puts her character's professional talents on display in one steamy-yet-funny scene
