Garcelle Beauvais


Just last night, actress Garcelle Beauvais posted a #TBT picture of herself in her first feature film, the classic Coming to America. Before she was Fancy on The Jamie Foxx Show, or Mr. Big’s wife and R. Kelly’s lover in the “Down Low (Nobody Has to Know)” video, she was one of three beautiful flower bearers in Eddie Murphy’s beloved comedy. When she shared the image, people not only remarked on the fact that they remembered her from the movie, but also on how young she still looks nearly 30 years later. Ain’t that the truth!

Beauvais, who is turning 50 this November, is still a stunner. She’s managed to maintain her glow all these years, and you would never guess that she’s a mother of three boys — including a 25-year-old son. To help her stay in fighting shape, the star has shared her fitness regimen with Self and People in the past, which includes quite a few resistance training exercises, as well as Pilates and treadmill work.

And a good balanced diet, which includes a few earned cheat days, also helps a lot.

“I try to eat healthy, but I don’t go crazy or anything,” the star told People in 2014. “I really do believe that it’s a balance. If I’m with my kids and it’s pizza night, I am having a couple of slices of pizza, for sure. And then the next day I’ll have something a little healthier. I really think it’s a balance and also, it comes from within.”

And when all is well on the inside, you can’t help but look this great on the outside. Check out a few more images of the beauty (and her sons) below:
