Allowing Nature to Take its Course

This week's beauty is actress Julianne Moore who is 50. Every now and then I like to feature a celebrity who is aging naturally and give them the thumbs-up for setting such a public example for all of us of what it looks like to age without erasing our face.

Plus, Julianne's comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love", in which she plays Steve Carell's wife (from the Office), is opening in theaters next Friday. Hopefully it will get good reviews as I 'm looking forward to seeing it.

Julianne has said she has no plans to undergo cosmetic surgery. She prefers to age naturally and allow nature to take its course. That's my girl!

Recently she was interviewed in Health Magazine and had this to say about aging:
  • "My feeling is live and let live. But some of those procedures that make you look younger—I don’t know that they really made anybody look younger. I think most of the time they made you look like you’ve had something done to your face. Even with the laser stuff, the skin becomes so shiny. It’s like nothing sticks to it. It’s just shiny, shiny skin, and it doesn’t have a normal patina, so you’re like, "What’s the matter with them?"

  • Look, it’s hard to age. Let people do what they want to do, but I do think that a new normal sometimes starts to exist where the cosmetic surgery itself starts to look normal, and we lose track of what a real face is like.

  •  The big thing about being 50 is the bar is much lower. People are like, "Oh my God, you look great!” So that’s sort of good." "

  • " I also credit my mother for keeping us out of the sun."

Keep it coming Ms. Moore :-)
