Actress Sally Field admitted that she was "an old woman" but it's OK. She said "I’ve gathered strength behind my years, I owned them, I’ve earned them, I’ve deserved them, and I have a right to have them. And I don’t like my neck, I don’t like a lot of things, but it’s OK, it’s OK. Behind my years, I have a value that doesn’t come when you’re 50 or 40 or 30 or 20, it doesn’t come until you’ve been in that saddle for a number of years.”

#5 Viola Davis

Viola Davis is not afraid to express her feelings about aging, “I love my age" The actress said, "The industry is very image-conscious, then you have the societal pressure on people, then you have a perfect storm of there being a lot of age discrimination.” She added, “It’s about liberating yourself from all that. I just find that a lot of times with Hollywood, there is a huge shame factor with getting older, and it doesn’t help women, especially because our value is so often really placed in how we look, how well we cook, and how we raise our children.”

#6 Sarah Jessica Parker

Parker thinks that women have a lot more to consider than just their physical appearance. “You want to be the person with the most experience who is a leader or relied upon as a professional, as a friend, as a wife, as a partner. That only comes with time spent living. So why are we not valuing that, instead of being focused on the fact that time spent living also produces wrinkles?” She said “When I’m out walking and have nothing to do, or I’m going to a bookstore, or I have some kind of freedom that’s based on choices that I’m getting to make — that’s when I feel most like myself.”

#7 Halle Berry

Halle Berry expressed her views on aging “We’re all going to get older. Our skin is going to shrivel up, and we’re going to look different. I see things changing with my face and body, but I’ve never put all my eggs in that basket. I’ve always known that beauty is deeper than the physical body you’re walking around in.” The actress also said that she refused to become someone who just tries to hold onto a youthful face and not enjoy life. "The most beautiful people have something radiating inside,” she said.

Andie MacDowell has always been a symbol of glamour, and she now appreciates it more than ever. “Always an honor to represent women of a certain age in a way that pushes the boundaries and shouts out that we deserve to be included, starred, and loved. I enjoy being glamorous more now than I ever have.” The actress added “We evolve, and we age, and this is part of the process. Aging is not about losing your beauty. I think aging is something that you either have to decide that you like or you don’t. I like that people are comfortable with me getting older. I think that’s an important message for all of us that we get older, and we are beautiful.”

Moore is one of the most talented and famous actresses in Hollywood, yet she is often asked about aging. “People have talked to me about aging for as long as I’ve been in the business. This idea that it’s something we have control over, or that there’s a good or bad way to do it, is simply not true. I actually think that when we really do feel aging is when we see it in relation to how much life we’ve lived.” She also revealed her beauty secrets“The first thing I do after waking up is drink 2 big glasses of water with chlorophyll in it. Someone told me a long time ago that it was really good for your skin, so I’ve always done it.”

Susan Sarandon looks fabulous at whatever age she is or will be. And here are her secrets, “If you want to age gracefully, you probably have to laugh a lot and get the normal amount of exercise, and eat well and stay out of the sun would be the main things.

#11 Sharon Stone

Shields has talked about how unappreciated people her age are and how Hollywood has stopped marketing to them. “It’s such an honor to be my age and be represented. I feel the magnitude of it more. There’s a knowledge that comes with age, and this feels less like a job and more like a privilege.” She added, “I believe that it’s a misconception that women can’t be sexy over a certain age. The acceptance of our bodies comes at a later date. I live much more in my body now than I ever did. My body actually feels like it belongs to me. And I can’t say that about my youth.”
