Sexy At Any Age: Susan, Sigourney And Jane Strip For Magazine
Could we love these ladies even more? Susan Sarandon, Sigourney Weaver and Jane Fonda have got their kit off for a raunchy magazine spread proving you can be sexy at any age.
Sarandon, 64, Weaver, 61 and Fonda, 72, have graced three different covers of V Magazine’s “Who Cares About Age?” issue to celebrate older women, with a few choice words for our body-obsessed culture.
“When I hear young girls complaining about superficial things,” said Sarandon. “You’re at the peak of your physical beauty right now!”
“Just enjoy it and stop worrying about your thighs being too big.”
Sarandon acknowledged the challenges of getting older. “I think growing older is tough for everybody…I think it’s really important to be in your life and surround yourself with things that get you excited, so you don’t feel like life is passing you by.”
Fonda has never let life pass her by, being active in her teen pregnancy prevention charities and releasing a new exercise DVD for older people, 25 years after her best-selling exercise videos (who could forget them!) Although she did recently come under fire for succumbing to a face lift after being adamant she would never resort to plastic surgery.
Last month she told Oprah that the surgery brought her a new-found happiness. “I look more like how I feel,” Fonda said in the interview. “I’m glad I did it.”
For the Academy Award-winning actress, getting older is about embracing a new state of mind. “There’s fabulous things about being older. The older people get, the less scared they are. All the studies show you’re not as anxious. People have less hostility, they have less negative emotions. They tend to see things from both sides. Very few things stress me out,” she said.
Weaver pointed out that while Hollywood is obsessed with youth, especially for actresses, there are still interesting roles for her generation of women.
“I never worry when they say ‘there are no roles’ or whatever. As long as people are telling stories, there will be great roles for all shapes, sizes, and sexes. You just keep moving and things come,” said Weaver.
What do you think? How do you stay sexy the older you get?
