The 58-year-old actress admitted that she is 'confused' why men aren’t asked the same questions about aging the way women are.
More and more women in the public eye are accepting that aging is a natural process that we should not stress over. Women are often told to "age gracefully" or look a certain way no matter how old they get. Fortunately, they are now calling out the hypocrisy behind the fact that men don't receive the same rules when it comes to aging. Actress Sarah Jessica Parker has something important to say about aging and she is one of those people who are more focused on her work rather than the wrinkles on her face.
The 58-year-old actress recently admitted that she is "confused" why men are not asked the same questions about aging the way women are. "I am so confused by the fact that the majority of men my age are simply never asked about aging," she recently told GLAMOUR in an interview. "We all wake up, have a million things going on and just need to get on with our days–I don't understand the emphasis that is placed on the pondering of aging."
The "Sex And The City" star admitted she'd rather choose skincare over "tweakments" or surgery. "I love that people choose to do what they want and find a way that makes them feel better when they walk out the door," the actress said. Cosmetic treatments and surgery are something she does not want to do because she is an actor who is meant to share various emotions on-screen. "I'm meant to be sharing emotion and communicating with my face, which for me needs to move. This is just how I feel for me and absolutely doesn't mean the same applies to someone else. We are all different and I love that about women," she shared.
A few months ago, the "And Just Like That" star also appeared on "The Howard Stern Show," clarifying she does not see anything wrong with people who choose to do surgery. "I do understand why people make the choice because there is so much emphasis put on, especially women and primarily women, about looks," she told host Howard Stern.
"Even last year, when we first went on the air with the new season, there were just so many endless articles about aging and aging gracefully and 'Sarah Jessica's hair is gray.' I think people should do whatever makes them feel better walking out the door," she added.
Parker also spoke to Vogue France in an interview earlier this year, saying she stopped thinking about her age and the process of aging. Even when it comes to her style, what is more important to her is to feel comfortable in what she wears. "I don't see it as something to worry about. Well, I don't know if it's denial or that I just don't want to face reality (laughs)! I don't see the point of trying to suspend time."
Clarifying that she does care about her appearance from time to time, she is now less bothered about what "other people think of my appearance. How do I feel when I wear a dress? That's what matters. I dress in a way that makes me feel good and I hope that it's also interesting for people."
