WHAT DO YOU KNOW NOW THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW IN YOUR 20s and 30s?
HOLLY HUNTER, star of "Saving Grace" and the upcoming "Top of the Lake."
"I know that on the other side of 50, the water is great! For me, birthdays have never been scary things. You can have other issues, but please don't make aging one of them. Just go into each year knowing it's great that you marked that milestone.
"Think of all the great women of a certain age. Sigourney. Meryl. Glenn Close. Helen Mirren. Helen Mirren, can you even believe her! She looks like a goddess! All of these women are goddesses!
"As for the rest of it, I know that in life you shouldn't obsess. Accept and move on. Of course, resolution is something we all seek. Time will tell the resolution of lack of one. Accept that life is full of wonderful mystery."
