Middle Ages

Don’t Age!


I’m not that comfortable with aging. I always thought that, not being such an obvious beauty, that it would be easy for me to age. You know, when you don’t have your looks that disappear. But I had something else. I realized that I had youth, for a long, long time. And now it’s gone. You don’t want to be reminded that you’re not 30 anymore. I don’t enjoy it.

I appreciate Charlotte Gainsbourg’s honest response to a question regarding something she said about possibly giving up acting. Maybe that’s her reality at 46. Yet somehow I was bothered more by the super-French response to how she “stays so beautiful and glamorous and skinny.”



Well, skinny is easy. Don’t eat!
