It truly makes me sad as a woman, to witness the never ending emphasis on youth in this country. While I am all for taking good care of yourself, including moisturizing, hydrating, exercising etc., one can only achieve a certain level when working against nature. Think of all the time, energy, and money wasted on "the good fight" of non-aging in the last phase of your life on this earth. I don't think we will hear a single woman on her deathbed utter the phrase "Gee, I wish I had had more Botox and fillers."

Bridgette Bardot has never had a thing done, and I believe it. She is who she is. She recues animals, and fights for animal rights. She is a chain smoker, and smoked since she was 14. She was also a sun worshiper, and still is she says. She is so comfortable with herself. She does look her age, but there is nothing wrong with that. And she is spunky and opinionated as she ever was.

They say she is a recluse, and shuns the life she once had. These are the most flattering pics I could find, because it seems the photographers always look for the bad angles, and the worst picture they can take of her. I don't know why.

She was stunning back then and she's beautiful now.

The epitome of beauty inside and out.

Beautiful now??? She looks like she hasn't combed her hair in decades. My goodness, her teeth are awful. It makes me feel sad looking at it.

I'm skeptical of that tight jaw-line.

and the full cheeks are kinda suspicious, too

At that angle, my jawline would look good too. My cheeks look like that too. I personally wouldn't have plastic surgery just for vanities sake. I'm 60 but I don't know her age.

She's in her 80's. Most will be happy to have that much hair and still have their natural teeth. It makes me sad that we place more value on beauty that we do on the important things in life. Don't take this as a personal attack, I'm including my self. Sometimes I'm ashamed of my vanity.

I still see the beauty in her face. But I don't understand why she did not do something with her teeth. That is the easiest thing to correct.

However, her mind is elsewhere and I think she has no interest in what she looks like. I read one of Jane Fonda's autobiographies and she said that even when they were all young over there in France (several of them, including Jane and Brigitte were married to the same man at one time or another), Brigitte was never impressed with her own looks.

About 10 years ago I saw Brigitte on TV and she didn't look like this picture. She was wearing her hair long and blond, face was very wrinkled and obviously she hadn't done anything artificial to her face. I would suppose she had spent a lot of time in the sun and being very far it would have taken it's toll. I have to give her credit for aging in her own way as ladies used to do. Developing inner beauty is the only one that will last; it will always draw people to you and for the right reasons.

Is she the gal on the non-hormonal prescription medication commercial for hot flashes? I can't remember the name.

I looked up the site and on that Cindy says she is 60 years old. Wonder when that statement was recorded?

How we take care of ourselves is a reflection of how we feel about ourselves. I hope I never look like a homeless or crazy person. There are many beautiful older women in their 80's and 90's who still take care of themselves. There is no excuse for horrible teeth.

Here's my personal opinion... the products that I have used for years are great and have really made a difference. I am running out of time on them tho, as my stock is dwindling and they have been discontinued. Even my derm talked me into something other than Renova, and my mistake, I bought it but still am "milking" the old Renova tube for all its worth.

On a lark, I purchased something that is supposed to fill in the lines... I saw no difference -- it is a newer product from a brand I like (LaRoche-Posay). I sometimes wish I lived in a foreign country so I could get the products that still work. For instance... why won't TPTB let LaRoche-Posay market their 60+ sunscreen CREAM that is so wonderful here in the usa? I think one can get it from derms... or from France on the black market, so to speak.

It is truly interesting and telling the number of efficacious products that are not permitted here. Big pharma, purse strings are the issue I believe. In fact I have some old spray from Clarins "E3p", that I used to protect my face from EMFS while on the PC, designed for this purpose. Guess what... they cant make it or sell it here anymore. Did you know the main ingredient in the old PHisohex is no longer available. The minute they figure out what works, they pull it, really stinks.

I don't know that it's big pharma (we're not talking drugs here) or purse strings in these cases. I think it's that some ingredients were found to be potentially dangerous.

Bridgette could have taken better care of herself. Her messy hair and bad teeth have nothing to do with aging gracefully.
