Suzanne Somers just turned 75 — and instead of trying to slow down the natural process of getting older, she’s embracing it.
On Instagram, the Three's Company actress celebrated her big day with a pantsless photo of herself (which you can see here). In it, Suzanne casually poses with her hand on her hip while flaunting an oversized cream-colored sweater and heels.
"Thanks for all the birthday love on my 75th! Turning three quarters of a century with love in my life feels great!" Suzanne captioned the picture on the social media site, referring to her husband of 45 years, Alan Hamel.
Not surprisingly, Suzanne's fans were quick to send plenty of birthday wishes and supportive messages. "You are the bomb and always have been! 👏👏👏👏 happy birthday! ❤️," one fan wrote in the comments section. "And you look great. 75 & FABULOUS 👩🏼," another noted.
When posing for Park Magazine last month, Suzanne opened up about how she views getting older. “Aging can be so incredible if you know how to approach it,” she told the publication. “I like the way I look. I like the way I feel. I like my energy. I have wisdom. I have perspective.”
Somers completely changed her lifestyle when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in her 50s, as she was experiencing perimenopause. “I have to say that since I embraced health, I have never enjoyed life more,” continued Somers, now cancer-free. “[Aging well] takes a little bit of work. It’s about health, about shifting your thinking and understanding what it is that’s making us sick, and how we can combat it.”
Her wellness recipe is deceptively simple: Somers gets plenty of sleep, eats an all-organic diet and monitors her hormones closely. She also takes estrogen daily and fish oil twice a day, applying progesterone each month.
“Every year, I get lab testing done to show my hormone levels,” Somers told Prevention last year. “I take supplements and vitamins determined by my deficiencies, and aim to keep everything in perfect balance.” On top of the supplements mentioned in her Park Magazine profile, she also said she takes B12, magnesium, and zinc, plus prebiotics and probiotics.
For Somers, wellness means listening to her body’s unique needs. “We have to learn the language of our bodies. Itching, b---ing, lack of sleep, sweating, bloating, forgetfulness, being dried up; that’s the body talking,” she said in the interview. “I’m telling you it’s nice to live with a woman who’s in a good mood every day, because I didn’t used to be.” (She even mentioned that before she began her wellness journey she “threw things!”)
“When you don’t have hormones, you don’t care about sex,” Somers continued. “I mean, you can do it, but you’d rather have a smoothie.” The actress has been vocal about the importance of her sex life with Alan. (In fact, she revealed that quarantine had been amazing for the couple on the podcast We Hear last year—apparently they’ve been having sex “most days,” sometimes twice!)
While so many of us are working to halt the progress of time, Somers eagerly awaits each new day — a welcome change of pace from the modern anti-aging culture. “Aging is amazing,” she said. “Aging is something you should aspire to and look forward to and want.”
