IS 40 THE NEW 20?

Age, shmage—these celebs are get­ting hot­ter as they get older!

Cosmopolitan (India) - - UPFRONT -

At 42, no­body would blame J.LO for tak­ing it a lit­tle easy. You know, cut back on the sex­i­ness, and slow down on that ca­reer. In­stead, she’s look­ing bet­ter than ever (did you see her at the Os­cars?!) and is cur­rently liv­ing it up with her 24-year-old beau, Casper Smart, fol­low­ing her split from hus­band Marc An­thony.

Sim­i­larly, if a few years ago you told us that Gwyneth Pal­trow, 40, was cool, we’d have gig­gled. Fast for­ward to 2012, and she’s at the top of her game, look­ing fit and fash­for­ward on the arm of hubby and rock­star Chris Martin. There’s also Gwen Ste­fani, 41, Jen­nifer Anis­ton, 42, and soon-to-be-40 Karisma Kapoor, all of whom are look­ing hot­ter with time. This is partly down to their age, says Peggy Oren­stein, au­thor of Flux: Women On Sex, Work, Love, Kids, And Life in a HalfChanged World. “In their 20s and 30s, women are fo­cused on ask­ing what oth­ers want. Turn­ing 40 sig­nals a time to ask, ‘What do want from me?’ It’s em­pow­er­ing.”

If there’s one thing we can learn from these stars, it’s that with age comes con­fi­dence and em­pow­er­ment—and that’s some­thing to look for­ward to.
