American actress Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the few Hollywood stars who embrace the natural aging process. The soon-to-be 50-year-old star took to her Instagram page to share a snap of her natural self in a yellow two-piece bikini. In her caption, she explained that she lets her “saggy skin and wrinkles” hang out all the time.
Judging by the picture, she still has a long way to go before she actually has loose skin or wrinkles, but she’s been showered with praise for debunking the usually high standards of beauty on social media for people of all ages.
Gwyneth Paltrow turned 50!
Celebrities have always openly gone under the knife and undergone various procedures to maintain their youthful appearance.
While there’s a group of secret surgeries — who always deny they’re doing anything, even when it’s perfectly clear — there’s also a group of celebrities who choose not to try to reverse the aging process.
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is one of them.
Taking to her Instagram page on Thursday this week, Shakespeare star in love shared a pic of herself in a bikini with a lengthy caption about how she embraces every wrinkle and every bit of loose skin that comes her way.
“My body [is] evidence card of all days. … A collection of signs and bumps that kill chapters. Scarred from oven burns, a long-ago broken finger in a window, the birth of a child. Silver hair and fine lines.’
“I accept marks and loose skin, wrinkles,” she wrote. “I accept my body and let go of the need to be perfect, look flawless, defy gravity, defy logic, defy humanity,” reads part of the mother-of-two’s caption.
The Oscar-winning actress also added that she plans to slow down and reduce her circle as she nears her fifties.
