Aging Gracefully with a Blessing

This week's beauty is my favorite actress Meryl Streep. God I love her. I have always loved her. Turning 62 on June 22nd, Meryl's talent, and natural, ravishing looks are allowing her to act circles around her over botoxed, frozen-faced peers in her golden years. Meryl's next film out is The Iron Lady in which she plays British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

In an interview with Oprah, Meryl had this to share about aging:

"In our business, I think the attention that's given to how you look is cruel and unrealistic. The people in the audience will accept much more than the people who run the film studios will. I feel blessed to have my life. Besides, I have friends who are dead already, so why would I complain about getting older? We devalue ourselves, and we really have to stop that."

You said it darlin'!

Below is a clip of Meryl from 2006 with one of my other favorite people, Ellen.
