Photo Gallery: What 60 Looks Like

These people in their 60s tell you why they're happy in their own skin

    I stopped coloring my hair two years ago. I decided, "I'm a grandfather now, and telling the truth is more important to me." When you're young, men lie — about everything. "I love you" — they start with that! When you realize what fake looks like, you don't want to be caught in that. I don't worry about my wrinkles, but I do from time to time examine myself closely. I get facials. I get regular massages. And I get my nails done. Think about this: You go home, you want to get in bed with your wife with your rough feet and dirty fingernails? I tell other men, "You can't do that!"
