This was the question posed by co-hosts, Kylie Gillies and Larry Emdur, of Australia TV’s Morning Show
With the TV and movie culture playing such a huge role in the way women see themselves this is a societal shift and a huge win for women that can not come to soon.
Not only do we need to address the physical aspects of aging but I long to hear celebs speak out about the mental, spiritual, social and emotional midlife transitions they’re experiencing as well.
Exactly the reason I squealed with delight when I heard Liz Hurly comment on aging at the Fabulous At Every Age Gala in New York.
“I think we really have to learn to get what we can out of every decade we go through; really get the benefits of each one. I’m in my mid-forties and I’ve never been happier.”
Kate Halfpenny, Executive Director of Who Magazine admits that a few years ago they would not have put a 40 year old woman on the cover of their magazine.
Fashion Commentator, Melissa Hoyer, had this to say, “With women over forty there’s an experience that comes with them that I think Hollywood has suddenly got and I think we’re all getting as well. That obsession that so many people had with 20-something year olds is sort of waning.”
Celebrities mentioned during the segment include 46 year old Sandra Bullock, Susan Sarandon “all woman” at 64, and 41 year old Jennifer Lopez, who was just named People Magazines most beautiful woman in the world. Congratulations J-Lo!
