On the good effects of growing older :
“When are you “middle aged” you have a chance for a whole second career, another love, another life. You may be sick of what you did the first half of your life, but you don”t just have to walk around and play golf or do nothing. We”re too young for that. It”s not like fifty is the new thirty. It”s like fifty is the new chapter. We know so much at this age, and people realize we”re the ones with experience. We”re a very colorful generation that is leading once again. People are afraid of changing, that they”re losing something. They don”t understand that they are also gaining something.”

On thinking about having surgery on her wrinkles:
“I can”t tell you how many doctors try to sell me a facelift. I”ve even gone as far as having someone talk me into it, but when I went over and looked at pictures of myself, I thought, “What are they going to life” Yes, I have come close – but, frankly, I think that in the art of aging well there”s this sexuality to having those imperfections. It”s sensual.”

On her thoughts on plastic surgery:
“If you have things that you want to fix, you should go right ahead and fix them. I don”t think there is anything wrong with cosmetic surgery at all. I think it”s great. But I don”t think it”s alright to distort yourself. You can”t treat an illness with cosmetic surgery, and that”s why it would be great if there were qualified therapists in plastic surgeons” officers, and that people would go to a therapeutic meeting before plastic surgery. I think that should be part of the FDA requirement.”
