I look just about what I expected to look like at 61.
We just went and saw Burlesque with Cher and I was so unhappy with what I saw because she’s about my age and it looks like she’s doing everything under the sun to keep from looking anything over 40 and I really thought that’s a shame. That’s a real shame to not allow yourself to grow and look beautiful for your age. I love the way Judi Dench looks. I would like to see what Cher would look like at 61 years old. I don’t want to see how she looks now, all reconstructed. I’d like to see what she really looks like.
I’m getting my father’s eyebrows which when I was younger I dreaded because I was really afraid I’d get them. He’s got those really, really brittle, white Scotch eyebrows that poke right out like whiskers over your eyes. And I’m starting to get them…what surprises me though is when I see them now, I pluck them out, but as I do it I say, hi dad, thanks for these. Now I kinda like them because every time I see them, they remind me of him. I feel like I’m finally figuring out who I am because all the kids are grown and out of the house and I’m married to someone who doesn’t make any demands on my time so I don’t have to meet any personal schedule, just work ones. So now for the first time I get to figure out who I am.
