Even as they age, Hollywood superstars are frequently under pressure to maintain their young appearances. We frequently hear about celebrities undergoing cosmetic operations to decrease the indications of ageing.
The pressure is particularly intense for women, yet an increasing number of female superstars are allowing themselves to age organically, defying conventional beauty standards, and embracing their true selves.
Andie MacDowell recently let her hair grey — and she doesn’t care what anyone thinks.
MacDowell, 64, is a well-known actress who has appeared in films such as Sex, Lies, and Videotape, Groundhog Day, and Four Weddings and a Funeral. While many actresses colour their hair as they become older, MacDowell has recently embraced her grey hair.
While many people are afraid of their first grey hair, MacDowell said she was pleased to finally pull off the mature look, which she had anticipated when she was younger.
“I thought the idea of a kind of salt and pepper would suit me,” she told Katie Couric recently. “I figured it’d look good on my face.” And as it started growing out during COVID, I realised I was correct…”I like how it looks on me.”
“As it grew out, my eyes popped, and the colour of them changed slightly.” “I liked how my skin looked better,” MacDowell continued. “And there was a feeling that it gave me more power.” I felt more powerful, more honest, and more like myself.”
“During COVID, my hair began to turn gray, and my girls were staying next door to me… “They saw me all the time, and they’d say to me, ‘You look badass, and you’ve got to keep this,'” she previously told NPR. “I must say that I’ve never felt more beautiful.” I’m not saying that everyone should go do this… but it works for me.”
The actress claimed she’s received remarks about her grey hair making her “look older,” but she’s content with looking her actual age.
“Do you think I look 75 simply because I let my hair grey?” In reaction to the critiques, MacDowell stated. “I don’t mind. I aspire to be elderly. I’m sick of pretending to be youthful. I don’t want to grow up. “I was young.”
The actress has previously spoken out against the unjust beauty standards that actresses face as they age. She told NPR that when she turned 40, an interviewer asked her how she felt about growing older and “losing her beauty.”
“I couldn’t believe it,” she exclaimed. “I told her I don’t think I’m losing my beauty; it’s just a different kind of beauty…” We evolve and age, and this is a natural part of the process… “Aging does not mean losing your beauty.”
“I think ageing is something that you have to determine whether you like it or not. “It’s a choice,” she explained to NPR. “I like that people are accepting of my ageing. That’s what I believe.
