Episode 17 - Aging Gracefully
Oct 02 2018 42 mins  
Today's podcast covers aging gracefully, the Ford/Kavanaugh Senate hearing, and chocolate truffles. Not to mention the inspiring woman spotlight. Don't miss it! Shownotes: Emma Thompson, 59 A few years ago, the English actress and her Academy Award-winning friend and compatriot, Kate Winslet, created the Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League and made a pact to never get plastic surgery or Botox treatments. "It's not a normal thing to do," says Thompson, "and the culture that we've created that says it's normal, is not normal.” Jamie Lee Curtis, 59 The one-time scream queen, who made her debut in the 1978 slasher flick "Halloween," now rages against the seemingly universal fear of growing older. "I am appalled that the term we use to talk about aging is 'anti,'" she once blogged. "Aging is human evolution in its pure form. Death, taxes and aging …. We are ALL going to age and soften and mellow and transition.” Lauren Hutton, 74 The gap in her front teeth didn't derail the modeling career of the now legendary cover girl. Not surprisingly, she embraces the natural beauty of the aging process over the unnatural results of cosmetic surgery. "Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life," says Hutton. "They are what we have been through and who we want to be. I don't think I will ever cut my face, because once I cut it, I'll never know where I've been” Jodi Foster, 55 The former child star and two-time Oscar winner has no desire to recapture her youth through cosmetic surgery. "For me, it's really a self-image thing," she told People magazine. "Like, I'd rather have somebody go, 'Wow, that girl has a bad nose' than 'Wow, that girl has a bad nose job.’" Stevie Nicks, 69 Unlike cocaine and other recreational drugs, one Botox experience caused the Fleetwood Mac singer to swear off the stuff forever. "Botox makes everybody look like Satan's children," she said. "You'd have to tie me down to get me to do it again.” Julia Roberts, 50 Hard to believe that the knockout named 11 times to People magazine's list of the "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" once thought it was necessary to give Botox a shot. "It was not a cute look for me," she later reported, disturbed by the procedure's frozen-face syndrome. "My feeling is, I have three children who should know what emotion I'm feeling at the exact moment I'm feeling it.” Sigourney Weaver, 68 To the three-time Academy Award nominee, staring into the face of a killer "Alien" isn't nearly as frightening as Botox. "I find that look scary," she once said in an interview. "I like getting older. There's nothing more inspiring to me than a woman in her 70s who's full of life and still useful. I never notice age in people's faces. I just look at the whole person.” Ines de la Fressange, 60 The Parisian model and designer says there are just four essentials in her beauty routine: protective day cream, Dior's Crème Abricot nail cream, no sun and lots of sleep. Botox and plastic surgery won't be added to that list anytime soon. "I would be too afraid I wouldn't recognize myself anymore," she told the London Evening Standard. Diane Keaton, 72 The beloved actress knows how to get a laugh ("Annie Hall") and how to be serious ("The Godfather"), but she seems little uncertain about her resistance to cosmetic surgery. "I just don't know if I want to mess with that," she said before turning 70. "The point is, no matter what you do, you're going to get older and you won't be here forever. So how do you grapple with it? How do you feel good about yourself?"
