Pop Quiz: What does 60 look like?
Still thinking? Of course you are; it’s a trick question. Nobody knows, because so few people have the chutzpah to age these days. So who looks better–Cher, Diane Keaton or Joan Van Ark?
My husband was torn between Cher and Diane Keaton. Not I. For me, it’s Diane by a mile. I look at her face and see a woman who has spent more time parenting her kids, taking photos, pondering the world and her place in it and making thoughtful movies than running to a plastic surgeon. I see a woman with the guts to be fully herself and to challenge Hollywood to respect a woman over fifty. Better yet, to simply acknowledge that there are women over fifty.
No wonder poor George Clooney is so confused about who his peer group is.
Thank you, Diane. And a big shout out to Annette Bening and Jacqueline Bisset, too.
