They don’t try to hide their wrinkles or fine lines, and it is amazing to see them show off their natural beauty on the red carpet and other celebrity appearances. These celebs are brave enough to let go of unhealthy societal beauty standards, and are great role models for the general public and young women. To learn more about these amazing celebs, check out these famous women who don’t try to hide their age and looks.
Cameron Diaz: Age 48
Cameron Diaz has a very interesting take on accepting that we are all going to eventually get older: doing so can actually extend your life. “You actually put up to 6 years more onto your life when you accept that you are aging. Once you embrace something, it’s a mindset, right? So the body follows the mind in anything,” said Diaz.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Age 48
This amazing actress has totally accepted her aging process and has an interesting take on getting older. According to online sources, Paltrow believes that once women hit 40, they begin to see aging signs with a new perspective. “Of course I have wrinkles [and] gray hair. But I genuinely love it. This is who I am.”
Drew Barrymore: Age 45
Actress Drew Barrymore has a beautiful take on aging: our internal situation will show on our external appearance, so how we feel on the inside is always more important. “I’m now determined more than ever to show my daughters that aging is a luxury,” Barrymore said. “If we’re lucky, we are all going to age. I just want them to be at peace with who they are and not what they look like. If they are good, cool people; that’s all I care about.”
Uma Thurman: Age 50
Thurman is another actress who believes that accepting aging is essential. She said about aging, “What if you wake up someday, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written, or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy, or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”
Kate Winslet: Age 45
Iconic actress Kate Winslet has made it clear that she doesn’t ever plan to get any plastic surgery, no matter her aging process. She believes that the very definition of beauty is contradicted by getting work done. On the subject, Winslet has said, “I am an actress, I don’t want to freeze the expression of my face.”
Sarah Jessica Parker: Age 55
Sarah Jessica Parker has always been iconic for her personal style and unique personality, both on screen and off. Parker is known for making public appearances without being super done up or even without a full face of makeup.
Natalie Portman: Age 39
