Watch: The top 7 fittest actors over 50
Rule number one of Hollywood: never judge a man by the number of candles on his last birthday cake. FromThe ExpendablestoTaken, today’s cinema is the prime exhibit to show just because you’ve reached middle-age you don’t have to give into the dadbod (we’re looking in your direction, Vin Diesel). In fact, the aged-50-plus actors below show you can make any years the prime of your life. What’s your excuse?
Chuck Norris (76)
Some say he can kill two stones with one bird. Others say he can throw a house through its own window. Confused? All you need to know is that even though Chuck is closer to 100 than 50, he’s still proving his worth by creating his own form of martial arts called ‘Chun Kuk Do’ and writing his own personal fitness column called ‘C-force’. Could he get any cooler? No. No he couldn’t.
Arnold Schwarzenegger (68)
Few believed him when he said he’d be back in 1984’sTerminatorfilm. Yet, he’s still around today, turning out hit after hit (we’re skippingTerminator Genisys, of course). But that’s not why he’s made the list. His recent praise of vegan bodybuilding has transformed the way the fitness world thinks about nutrition, thus cementing his place as a MH hero of muscle. We raise our broccoli to you, Arnie.

Sylvester Stallone (69)
As his Oscar nominated role inCreedshowed, the originalRockycan still pack a punch when it matters. And Stallone looks like he’s getting stronger and stronger, vowing to battle ISIS in the next Rambo movie (seriously). But until that, erm, interesting premise hits your screen, you can enjoy Stallone acting alongside anotherMHcover star, Chris Pratt, inGuardians of the Galaxy 2next year.

Keanu Reeves (51)
Although seemingly being unable to age (or act), theMatrixstar has finally broken into this group of over 50s actors with action-filled flicks, John Wickand47 Ronin. And as the kick-ass video above shows, Keanu has fully earned his tickets to the gun show.
Harrison Ford (73)
The recent announcement that Harrison would swing back into another Indiana Jonesfilm had people immediately guessing a full title suitable for the ageing archaeologist, (our favourite:Indiana Jones and Get Those Damn Kids Off My Lawn). But are there any serious doubts if theStar Warssmuggler can get himself in shape for Indy and the upcomingBlade Runnersequel in 2019? Of course not. Just like all his films, we’re sure he'll insist in reaching the fitness levels needed to perform his own stunts once again. Even if that’s just firing a pistol at oncoming swordsmen.

Jackie Chan (61)
Here’s a man that proves you can be Kung-fu fit at any age. From starting off as a stunt double in Bruce Lee's films, Chan shows just how important real strength is - despite being less than six foot, the martial arts master has still detonated maximum explosive strength in over 100 movies. He’s even filming another martial arts film,Kung Fu Yoga, at the moment. There’s no stopping him. Except maybe another fall like this:
Liam Neeson (63)
If somebody can show you’ll reach your physical peak later in life, it’s Neeson.
