Holy Parthenon! Sharon Stone looks absolutely beautiful on the set of the “Gods Behaving Badly” in her role as Aphrodite (with Christopher Walken as Zeus!)
Now, who was the bozo that said women over 50 are old ladies?? Please! That may have been another generation, but nowadays, we’re looking better than women have ever looked. We’re healthier than our mother’s generation, for one thing. For another, our good looks have little to do with extensive plastic surgery..
…Among actresses in the over 40 set, Stone is one of the few that does not look like she’s been surgically altered, nor does she look numbed up with Botox, or fat-lipped with collagen.
Knowing how my skin has held up over the years, the two best things a woman can do for herself is stay out of the sun and get a good skin regimen. “They” might say that creams don’t work, but if you start using the right stuff for your skin at any age, you will halt any damage and slow the wrinkling process.
Oh, it also helps if genetics are on your side. Always look at your mom, and her skin, and what she did to preserve it, and that will give you a good indication of what you might look like. I, luckily, ended up on the good side of the gene pool. I also invest in some great Chanel cosmetics that I’d die without.
Perhaps the only time plastic surgery might be a good investment is when you’ve still got a boatload of energy, good health, and are in those “golden years” (yes, I’m talking 70 or older.) Take a look at these ladies in an article on seniors and plastic surgery in today’s New York Times.
Quite frankly, if I’m in good health in 20 years, 70 seems about the right age for a little nip and tuck
