On looking good at age 78:

I got a fake hip, a fake knee. You should see what happens to me at airports. It’s just a fact. No matter what your body is going to go south. Your spirit and your mind [makes soaring gesture]. The old fashion way of looking at aging is that you’re born, you peak at midlife and then you decline into decrepitude. The way to really look at it is, even if your body is declining, even if you’re sick, your spirit your heart is on an upward trajectory, always growing and evolving. I started feeling young, I kid you not, at 60. Actually 62 I became a single woman. Also I’ve been working on myself. You don’t because wise and healthy because you’ve had a lot of interesting experiences. You have to think about the experiences and what they mean… I did a lot of working on myself. I don’t think I’ve ever been quite as happy as I am now.

… says Jane.

On her pre-fame days of working in a bar:

I have so much respect for waiters, waitresses, girls who work in clubs. It’s tough. I’d have old guys saying ‘You’re so pretty, why are you working?’ or ‘Come live with me, honey.’ Like, what, so I can be taken care of? That’s the last thing that I want. What I wanted to say was, ‘[I work] so I will never end up with someone like you.’

… says 29 year-old Shay in Cosmo.

Julia Roberts Brings Today’s Quote

On how she stays in shape:

“I feel like if I knew all the things to do [in terms of exercise], I would probably look like I was put together with tape. I would just go crazy. So I think, better just to remain calm, drink your water, get your sleep and be joyful. We definitely try to eat mindfully. As I always say to my kids, ‘You have to eat the good stuff to get the good stuff.’”

… says 48 year-old Julia.
