|Through the magic of modern photography — before and after — not one wrinkle.|
In a multi-page article in Gala magazine, Carole Bouquet remarked that she found that, “It’s exhausting to always want to be young and beautiful!”
|Her quote in French.|
To be perfectly honest, I skimmed the article while having my hair cut. What? You think I buy the magazine? From what I retained after perusal, the beautiful, though some say “glacial,” 57-year-old actress said she didn’t plan on worrying about either youth or beauty.
|The lovely Dame Judi Dench|
Meanwhile over at The Hollywood Reporter, our beloved Judi Dench who will celebrate her 80th birthday in December , was quoted as saying: “I don’t want to be told I’m too old to try something. I want to see for myself if I can’t do it rather than be told you might have a fall or you can’t learn your lines. Let me have a go. Let us all have ago.
“Age is a number, it’s something imposed on you… It drives me absolutely spare when people say ‘are you going to retire, isn’t it time you put your feet up’ or tell me [my] age,” the seven-time Oscar nominee said.
“The only time I got really upset was when I was 40, for some reason. I got really upset when I was 40, and I was alright after that. It’s that old thing: you are only as old as you feel. It’s not to do with age; it’s something to do with inside. It’s theengine.”
Just a couple of thoughts for us to ponder over the weekend.
I’m off to Paris in the pouring rain.
