I'm comfortable with my looks. No Botox, no hair color — uh-uh! My hair tends to be thin, and that bothers me in some ways, but I don't intend to wear a wig. I'm going to do the best I can with what I have. I could do better in terms of weight — as you age, everything wants to go down! You do what you can to fight gravity, but it's one of the markers of the aging process. As you get older, your view of yourself should allow you to stand independent from the judgments of others and say, "You people are nuts. This is my body, my face. I feel good about it, and you've got distorted notions about aging."
