For Diane Lane, hitting the big 5-0 was far from easy.
"I rehearsed [turning] 50. I kind of stared at it a long time. I wasn't going to let it terrify me," the 51-year-old actress confessed in a new interview with MORE magazine.
Thankfully, Diane admitted she's since learned to embrace her age. "My relationship with aging is cozy. I'm not trying to play 29 and holding on with white knuckles, you know? I'm done saying, 'I'm sorry I wasn't who you needed or wanted me to be' to everybody in my life."

"To be honest, relationships with the opposite sex are the most challenging things I've done," she said. "You lose your compass, gravity changes, you don't know what's up or down, you're trying to figure it out. You're trying to make everybody happy, including yourself, and it's just... it's humbled me."
"Sure, I'd like a relationship again, but I'm loving the solitude as well," Diane, who split with Josh, 48, in 2013 after nine years of marriage, added.
