Once a sex symbol to men everywhere, legendary actress Kathleen Turner is turning 60 next year and tells Closer Weekly that she’s made peace with getting older.
“I don’t look like I did 30 years ago. Get over it!” Kathleen, who once burned up the screen in "Body Heat" jokes.
“I’m going to be 60 next year. Sixty! And even I say to myself, 'Okay, we can’t pretend anymore here.' ”
Kathleen admits it isn’t always easy staying confident around fans who remember her a certain way.
“One thing I get really tired of is people coming up to me and saying, [in a patronizing voice] 'Oh, you look gooooood!' One day I got so fed up I said, 'I thank you. And I really wish I met you before so I could say the same for you.' ”
But with a vibrant career and exciting new roles ahead, Kathleen is embracing her next chapter.
“You have to get to that place as a woman where you know your worth isn’t dependent on [looks].”
The 59-year-old actress is set to play Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels’ love interest in next fall’s "Dumb and Dumber To" and will soon star in the anti-war play "Mother Courage and Her Children."
“I’m proud to have such a vibrant career. Acting’s never gotten tired for me.”
