5 Celebrity Women Who Are Excited to Age

There may be big pressure on women to look as though they are 20 when they are 40, but these 5 celebrities aren’t willing to accept those unrealistic standards and say they are excited to age -not just because they will change in appearance – they will also learn so much about life in the process. Explaining why they’re excited to age, these star women aren’t afraid to see a wrinkle or two, and are more interested in what they’ll gain as the years roll by.

Cameron Diaz


Cameron thinks acting roles for women get better with age: “I can’t wait to be older. This is something we really need to reframe. The most interesting parts are for women who are over 40. We don’t see it that way, because they’re not the sexy parts. Look at the Oscar nominees in the last decade.”

Carey Mulligan

Carey looks forward to being able to play older characters: ”I spent a lot of my early 20s playing teenagers because of my baby face. My agent has started saying, ‘You’ve been offered this part, she’s 19, you’re too old’, and I’m like, ‘I’m too old? Brilliant! I’ve never been too old’. All the great parts come now, I think, so I’m excited.”

Emma Watson

Emma thinks women shouldn’t fear age, and says she is excited personally: “As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the ageing process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.”

Eva Longoria

Eva wouldn’t want to be in her 20s again and likes evolving: “I would never want to repeat my 20s. I welcome age with open arms because I want to evolve as a human being, gain more wisdom. I have so much more to do! And the only way you do that is with age.”

Katie Holmes

Katie loves the idea of learning more and feeling wiser as she ages: “I find that as I get older I am excited to get older. There are more things for me to learn. I realise that I don’t know as much as I thought I did. I like looking back and seeing pictures of the past because that is ‘who’ I created for me. That is what I was doing. I appreciate it more and more. Every day I try to find out more things about myself. I love changing.”
