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."
