What scares you the most about getting older? (VIDEO)

Melissa Gilbert explains why she's not afraid of getting older

We asked Melissa Gilbert what scares her about getting older. The answer may surprise you.

Melissa says, "As far as getting older, I’m really not afraid of anything. I don’t live my life from a place of fear. I do get scared of things. But if something comes into my life that is challenging and scary, I’m going to do it. My husband and I have these long talks about aging, and he says he’s excited to see when I stop coloring my hair and it’s long and white. He has this image of me with a long, white braid down my back and all these grandkids around me while I work in children’s theater. That’s what I think my future holds and I don’t see anything scary about that at all."
