Beautiful Old People

Jane Fonda (born Lady Jayne Seymour Fonda; December 21, 1937) is an American actress, writer, political activist, former fashion model, and fitness guru. She also produced and starred in over 20 exercise videos released between 1982 and 1995, and once again in 2010.
Quotes I like:
"There is an endless list of good things that can happen to you if you exercise," she adds. "It's important that people my age keep moving." Now in her eighth decade, with a new hip and knee and also, she admits, a little cosmetic help from the surgeon's scalpel, Jane is slim, toned and unbelievably smooth-skinned.
You're never too old to exercise
"I am 72-years-old," says J a n e. "I 've had a hip replacement and a recent knee replacement, and I still manage to stay active." In fact the fitness guru says she still likes to work out for at least an hour four or five times a week.
"As we age, those are the muscles that help us maintain posture, balance and strength. Exercise is also the key to building and maintaining my energy." Feeling great past 60 is about appreciating what age has brought you as much as it is trying to ward off its saggy assault on your body. "I'm happier, the sex is better and I understand life better. I don't want to be young again," insists Jane, who says age has given her a better perspective on life. "Less important things are less important. Like being thin and being hit on."
"It's not that I haven't tried virtually everything," she says. "But for me, the truest, most reliable beauty potion is regular, vigorous exercises combined with good nutrition. These are the most important things you can do for your skin.
"Exercise increases the circulation and brings a rich flow of nutrients and and oxygen through the blood to the skin's cells."
