I dunno, but two of the most beautiful women I know celebrated their 90th birthdays not long ago. Lida is almost 91 now, and Gert, my sister-in-law, still plays golf!
There was a nasty crack about Ms. Bacall's appearance in the forward, too. It said all the meanness she has been known for shows in her face. That comment was made by a show business person (male) who is said to know. But Leslie Parsley is having none of it. She said she's "always liked Bacall. She is very very liberal." Me, too, Leslie, and I think Bacall looks stunning. LP also said that few women would be as brave as Bacall to have that kind of photo taken, too: b&w and closeup?? Shudder!
Just for the hey of it (and anything to distract me from editing), I took an unsmiling closeup of myself here at my dining/working table this morning. Bacall and the others combed their hair and did makeup. I rarely comb my hair and NEVER wear makeup. Just can't be arsed to do that. But I maintain that old is not ugly. It's just different and rich and wonderful.
