At the 2017 Glamour Awards, Nicole Kidman gave the middle finger to aging while enjoying success

Well, in case you were wondering, yes, Nicole Kidman is officially the definition of life goals, and double yes, she confirmed this fact while giving her beautiful acceptance speech for Film Actress of the Year at the 2017 Glamour Awards.

Kidman's speech involved some major comments regarding her age that are worth noting and praising. On the cusp of 50 years old, Kidman commented on her status as an older woman in Hollywood and enjoying an unusually full career schedule. I suggest you start fist-pumping now, because these quotes from Kidman's speech show that she is a woman living in the moment, loving her age, and is unapologetically excited about what is happening in her life right now.

"I want to tell all the women out there — it is not over at 40. It is not even over at 50," the actor told the Glamour Awards crowd. "I'm going to take this as a birthday present — I'm about to turn 50 in two weeks, and I never thought this would be one of my best years." It's indeed been a roller-coaster year for Kidman, who not only starred in the massive hit HBO show Big Little Lies, but recently returned from the Cannes Film Festival, where she was involved with four projects (three films and one television show) that premiered there. She's a busy bee right now, and she's not letting her age get the better of her.
