INSPIRATION: Women making a difference
What's more to love than celebrities that show us ageing gracefully is an option.
Award winning artist and winner of People's Choice 2019.
Pink recently tells viewers to ‘stop fighting and help each other’ in inspiring People’s Choice Awards speech.
Pink has declared she can't wait to age the 'old fashioned way' and is never going to go down the cosmetic surgery route. The singer took to Twitter to reflecting on how it feels to adjust to the 'new reality' of ageing in the wake of her 40th birthday. Pink admitted that she wants her children - son Jameson, three, and daughter Willow, eight, to know what she looks like when she is angry.
She has been nominated for more Oscars than any other actress, and is one of only three living actors to win three Academy Awards.
Three-time Oscar winner, actress Meryl Streep, who has managed to eschew the typical Hollywood lifestyle and to keep her family life private. She has a beautiful chameleon-like talent that allows her to take on a variety of roles. We admire her for her brilliance and her natural beauty.
Iconic beauty Cindy, known for her good looks, said "I don’t have to try to feel young. It’s only when you start thinking about the number that you don’t feel that way, so I don’t dwell on the number. I just embrace where I am today.
"When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, to stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing? I won't lie and tell you that those things don't cross my mind, because somebody is always suggesting it to me. 'You know, if you just did a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better.' It's almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That's what I feel like. I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self. Ageing is natural, and that's going to happen to all of us.... I just want to always look like myself, even if that's an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way."
“We live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we are not young, and we’re not glowing, and we’re not hot, that we don’t matter. I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don’t matter. I know that only by owning who and what you are can you start to step into the fullness of life. Every year should be teaching us all something valuable. Whether you get the lesson is really up to you.” — Oprah, O, the Oprah Magazine, May 2011
“You have to sit down and take a good look at yourself, particularly as you grow older and your face changes. People are afraid of changing; that they’re losing something. They don’t understand that they are also gaining something … As I lost the fullness in my face, I got in these great cheekbones. I can’t tell you how many doctors try to sell me a facelift. I’ve even gone as far as having someone talk me into it, but when I went over and looked at pictures of myself, I thought, What are they going to lift? Yes, I have come close — but, frankly, I think that in the art of ageing well there’s this sexuality to having those imperfections. It’s sensual.” — New You, Summer 2013
