Women of a certain age rock
So, Susan Sarandon's 60th birthday yesterday got me thinking. We all know that Hollywood tends to treats women of a certain age as if they were invisible (or a potato sack...you decide which is better). But that doesn't mean we in the real world have to drink the Kool-Aid. Quite the contrary, I think we're in the midst of a renaissance of sexy sexagenarians. Consider these five lovely ladies, all over 60, all doing great work. And, might I add, looking damn good. Witness the above irrefutable photographic evidence (click to enlarge), all taken within the last year: Catherine Deneuve (62), Jacqueline Bisset (62), Helen Mirren (61), Diane Keaton (60) and Susan Sarandon (60). With age, comes wisdom. And with wisdom, often comes great beauty. Rock on ladies.
