Oprah Talks Aging, Regrets, Being Free At 60 On The May Issue Of O Magazine

April 11, 2014  |  

You know what they say some people age like cheese and others, like fine wine. And looking at Oprah on the May issue of O Magazine, we’d say Oprah belongs in the latter group. For the issue, the media maven wears a purple gown, lying on the floor with her hair splayed out behind her.

She conducted the interview from that same position where she spoke about the regrets she has now that she’s getting older (Oprah turned 60 this past January.) and how she manages to remain youthful these days.

She says the best thing about aging.

“The absolute best part is being able to be free to be and do whatever you want. You can be and do whatever you want to, thanks to exercise and hair color.” 

The hardest part and what she regrets she has from her younger years.

“I think the hardest part of aging really is recognizing the time that you wasted and the things that you worried about that really didn’t matter,” she said. “That’s really the hardest part, that’s really the only regret that I have.”

But Oprah is not worried about getting older:

“I’m not one to get hung up on numbers, but if you want to say 60 is the new 40, I’ll take that.” 

And as far as the negative aspects of getting older, Oprah has the antidote, “Hair color: The greatest invention of all time for women. Thank you Miss Clairol.”

Alrighty girl! I don’t know what Oprah’s been doing recently but that waist is snatched. 60 looks good on her.
