5 Celebrity Women Discuss Going Through Menopause

Kim Cattrall

Kim has candidly spoken on her experience: “Literally one moment you’re fine, and then another, you feel like you’re in a vat of boiling water, and you feel like the rug has been pulled out from underneath you — especially the first experience. What I would say, which I’ve said to myself and to girlfriends who’ve also experienced hot flashes, in particular, is that change is part of being human. We evolve and should not fear that change. You’re not alone. I feel that part of living this long is experiencing this, so I’m trying to turn it into a very positive thing for myself, which it has been, in the sense of acceptance and tolerance and education about this time of life.”

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah found menopause to be liberating: “I’ve discovered that this is your moment to reinvent yourself after years of focusing on the needs of everyone else.”
