EXCERPT: How Cameron Diaz Has Given Herself Permission To “Age Gracefully”
OPRAH: Our culture is obsessed with not growing into who you were really meant to be.
CAMERON: This is true.
OPRAH: Our culture's obsessed with it.
CAMERON: It's crazy.
CAMERON: And women don't allow other women to age gracefully. And we don't give ourselves permission to age gracefully.
OPRAH: Because everybody's trying to be back there.
CAMERON: Everybody's -- exactly. It's almost as if we have failed if we don't remain 25 for the rest of our lives. Like we are failures. It's a personal --
CAMERON: -- failure. Our fault that at 40 years old I don't still look like I'm 25.
CAMERON: Oh, I'm sorry. I apologize.
CAMERON: I wasn't able to defy nature.

EXCERPT: Sharon Stone On The Pressures Of Being A “Sex Symbol”
OPRAH: Have you let the whole pressure to -- to be the sex symbol, have you let that go completely?
SHARON: Yeah, but I don't -- it's actually come full circle for me. It's a pleasure for me now. I mean, I'm gonna be 56 years old. If people want to think I'm a sex symbol, it's, like, yeah. Think it up. You know. I mean, like good for me.
SHARON: I mean, wow. And good for every other lady of my age to feel themselves as a sex symbol. Because why shouldn't we feel a sex symbol in our 50's?
EXCERPT: How Sharon Stone Feels About The Term “Ageless Beauty”
OPRAH: I love that you said you don't want to be an ageless beauty, but that you want to be the best you can be at each age.
OPRAH: Tell us what you meant by that.
SHARON: Well, I mean, first of all, I don't think ageless beauty exists. I think it's just a catch phrase. And so, you know, I think that's absurd.
OPRAH: It's good for a jar of cream.
SHARON: Yes. But, no, it's not possible. And I think to be the best you can be, you know, we have to recognize that it's an internal thing. Not just an external thing. We have to have internal health and internal wellness. And I think that's physical health, mental health, spiritual health. You know, I think it's a sense of ethics. It's everything, you know. If you want to keep yourself together, it's all things.
