There is a dearth of roles for seasoned actresses, fueling scientific innovation intended to keep women looking younger even as they get older. When Botox is commonplace and getting a nip/tuck is as mundane as going to the grocery store, growing old gracefully seems to be a thing of the past.
Fortunately, there are talented trailblazers and mavericks who knock down doors, kick butt and take names. These women don’t take no for an answer, and they refused to be pushed aside just because they made another trip around the sun. They are living proof that age ain’t nothing but a number and talent rises to the top. We are all the better for it.
