Just when the Kim Kardashian Complex Magazine Photoshop brouhaha was becoming old news, Harper’s Bazaar Magazine put another potential little perfect storm in the blogosphere with this May 2009 issue. The cover features Halle Berry airbrushed to look older than usual. In addition, opines Entertainmentwise, “Her face has been slimmed down dramatically and lightened, and her cheekbones over-defined.”

Inside the glossy, however, airbrushing aside, the 42-year-old actress looks stupendous in her bubbly and exquisitely elegant ensembles.

Her secret to youth? “I have a 33-year-old man. That’ll keep your mojo mojo-in’,” she told Harper’s before talking about the challenges of staying fit at her age.

“Having a baby takes so much from you. It’s the most glorious thing you’ll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious! So now I’m having to exercise, eat a little bit differently, take a lot more vitamins.”

Her vice? “I like Doritos. I’m usually watching The Biggest Loser eating Doritos.” Stats for PhotoAging Famous Faces Trending: Older & Mild
