Michelle Pfeiffer

For Michelle Pfeiffer, turning 50 was bittersweet. The actress, now 53 and always known for her good looks, says she had to learn to accept getting older – and now, she owns it. "Honestly, there's certainly a mourning that takes place,” she has said. “I mourn the young girl, but I think that what replaces that is a kind of a liberation, sort of letting go of having to hold on to that. Everyone knows you're 50. So you don't have to worry about not trying to look 50. And then it becomes, 'Hey, she looks good for her age.'”
