Photo Gallery: What 70 (and 80) Looks Like

These people over 70 tell you why they're happy in their own skin

John Taylor "Ike" Williams. 73

Boston, Massachusetts
Lawyer/Literary Agent

If I'm going out, I check to see how I look, but otherwise do I get up in the morning and look in the mirror? No. In my day, men didn't think so much about whether they were handsome. Growing up in Gloucester, on the boats, the skin on our backs and nose was like leather. I've had a melanoma removed. Now, I'd be stupid not to wear sunscreen. But other than that and deodorant, I don't use anything. What you see is what you get. You can't recapture youth anyway. We're all on gravity's rainbow. You ain't gonna stop it.
