Actually that's an unfair comparison as a great many things and people in this world are not aging as well as the lovely and sexy Ms. Gugino.
In her mid-fourties, Carla looks better than many actresses half her age and pretty much all of the actresses near her age. She's made a sturdy career out of supporting characters in movies and television. Her one starring role in TV, the short-lived Karen Sisco was, well . . . short-lived. More's the pity, but it's not like she's starving for work -- a talented, scandal-free actress that looks great in front of the camera will always have work. At least I hope she will.
The pics here are from something called Sharp Magazine, and she is, indeed, looking sharp here:
