In their own words; how A-list women feel about ageing

In the words of the late, great Audrey Hepburn, “And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!” 

There's no questioning the truth of this sentiment.

With age comes a maturity, wisdom and strength that only comes with knowing we can survive life's toughest challenges. 

Yet so many of us feel a fear and anxiety as the years pass, with birthdays -  once a time for celebration and excitement - coming to represent a passing of time that we have no power to stop. And alongside that comes the inevitable change to what we see in the mirror and the question; to embrace it or to try and fight it?

And for the women who have spent their life on camera and in the public eye it's little wonder that ageing can, for some, become a preoccupation. So, in their own words, here the A-list open up about how they feel about age.
