Actress Madeleine Stowe Explains Why She's So 'Comfortable' Post-50

Actress Madeleine Stowe knows all about aging gracefully. With her flawless skin and flowing hair, it’s obvious that the 56-year-old actress embraces her age -- and looks great while doing so.

Stowe joined HuffPost Live on Monday and shared why she is “more comfortable” now that she’s entered her 50s.

“Forties are great until about 43 or 44, and then it gets really hard because you start to see your mortality and then you start to see certain limitations,” she said. “And then when you’re in your 50s, it’s sort of like, screw all of that! This is wonderful … You just want to go for it, you know? And you’re happy.”

The "Revenge" star also dished on living a holistic lifestyle and how she keeps her skin looking fresh. Her secret? Facial exercises that she says are “too weird to do on camera.”
