Joanna Lumley: 61 and Happily Wrinkled!

When we watched the Oscars the first thing we noticed about Nicole Kidman was not her gazillion dollar necklace, but her face, and not in a good way. She's been slowly heading in this direction, but she'd seems to have finally hit some sort of "Okay, now it's obvious" point. Her lips were bigger. Her skin was twice as taught as ours, and she's almost twice our age. We mean, Kidman is over 40 but you'd never guess that from looking at her probable eye lift. In fact with so many celebrities like Kidman and all those Real Housewives of Orange County/New York reruns, it's hard to remember not only what normal aging looks like. Enter Joanna Lumley who played Patsy Stone on Absolutely Fabulous. She's 61 and looks it in an absolutely fabulous way.

She has said: "Growing older is inevitable and it seems silly to get worried about it."


"I love being called Granny. It's like becoming the elder of a village.

"We've all got a few more wrinkles, but who cares? If you always try to be kind, you'll look like the most beautiful person on Earth - and men will just fall at your feet."

We know what she said is a bit cheesy, but it's refreshing to see an older woman whose confident about her age in her own un-pulled God-given skin. It would be a pleasure to look at more women like her rather than contemplate why such-and-such actress looks so weird every time a big red carpet event rolls around.
