Trying to figure out what to do during these long winter days and nights? Head to the theaters and watch midlife actors & actresses make their mark in some amazing movies. The roles are great, the performances worthy. Peers and American movie watchers are taking notice. Baby Boomers and Generation X were well represented and nominated. For Hollywood that is a step in the right direction. Women over 50 or in midlife are always fighting father time and fading roles. Many movies tend to have 20 to 30 year old female bombshells paired with older men. Even in magazines anyone over 40 is usually airbrushed like crazy to look younger and thinner. Why they can't see that midlife is rather sensually rejuvenating and sexy is beyond me. As actresses near midlife they start to fade from the big screen so this years award nominees are so very refreshing! I noticed... Oh yes I did!
Of course while it was nice to see middle aged women get nominated, it's even nicer to notice that the majority of these women are happy to work with what they were born with, realizing age is only a number. Plastic surgery has fooled even the most beautiful of people. The addiction of constantly wanting to look younger has turned some into conversation pieces of what NOT TO DO! Believe it or not there are many in hollywood who have said NO to plastic surgery and they are still sharing their talents with us and knocking it out of the ball park. When you think about it ? Aging gracefully is the way it should be done if you want to be a true hollywood icon. What woman doesn't look at Robert Redford with all the wrinkles and think. Oh Yes, I'm in baby! Even in everyday life, beauty is more appreciated if it hasn't been forced or manipulated. Tina Fey, Salma Hayek, Helen Mirren, Emma Thompson and all of you who dare to appreciate and share your natural beauty... Thank You!
Not to mention you should be a celebrity if you can be 50 and over and many people don't even know it. Here are some starlets who are sneaking through mid life. Some may have done some nips and tucks but over all these stars are not letting a youth driven society knock them off of the "Beautiful People" list! Here are 50 stars over 50! The 2015 Oscars, 87th Academy Awards Ceremony is Sunday, February 22, 2015.
Keep looking forward so you don't miss what God puts in front of ya!
