I don't think 66 is old age; it's just that in our culture 26 years is already old age, - she said in an interview. - I have so many friends who are older than me who also feel young. In fashion and beauty circles, I am a strange bird, but in the broader context of the world I am not.
The key to caring for Linda is getting a good sleep.
I sleep a lot and take good care of myself. I eat very well. I don’t go in for sports, so I don’t have any regimen for that. I guess I'm just sleeping well and eating well. I really think this is the key for me.

How to love your body in two weeks
You only need to make one small change in your life every day.
Actress Diana Keaton has always been known for her sharply negative attitude towards plastic surgery. She encourages women to be bold, to accept their shortcomings and see them as advantages.
I'm talking about finding something that helps you get out of the house every day, I'm talking about the shortcomings that your life eventually takes over. The ineptitude that makes you who you are. I'm talking about women who make us see beauty where we have never seen it; about women who turn wrong into right.
Keaton emphasizes that he respects women who are not afraid to look out of place and do what they are not supposed to.

Jackie's story is similar to a typical modeling career - representatives of the clothing brand accidentally met her in a restaurant and offered to cooperate. The exception is that Jackie was 60 at the time and had no modeling experience at all. In 2011, she starred for Advanced Basics in lingerie with the slogan: "Sexuality has no expiration date." Jackie admits that it was difficult to love herself, but she did it. The best advice she can give women is accept yourself.
Beauty is really a matter of perception. This is culture. The dictates of society can drain you if you buy into it. Each age has its own advantages and challenges. Accept your current position. Not tomorrow, not in 10 pounds, not after you do this or that. Now. Love yourself. This is a springboard to everything else.
