You’re Never Too Old! Celebrities Who Became Famous After 40

July 8, 2013 ‐ By Iva Anthony

While most celebrities become famous by the time they’re in their 20’s or 30’s, for one reason or another these 15 stars didn’t find fame until they hit the big 4-0.

"Hulk Hogan pf"


Hulk Hogan

Hollywood Hulk Hogan based his wrestling ego on the fact he was a star, but in actuality, Hogan wasn’t a star until he was in his 40’s. Hogan began his professional career in wrestling before trying his hand at starring in movies. After appearing in a few films, Hogan returned to wrestling, this time teaming up with Vince McMahon, who purchased WWF from his father. Becoming the face of the WWF, Hulk and his Hulkmania persona took the wrestling company to new heights and he became a permanent fixture in pop culture. After dominating the wrestling ring, Hogan ventured off into other fields including movies and reality television.
