SHANIA TWAIN “I’m so much more accepting of the way I look now.”— Shania How She’s Embracing Her Age From this moment on, Shania Twain is no longer going to worry about wrinkles. “I just started stepping out of battles that I couldn’t win,” says the country music superstar, 54. “Aging is a battle you can’t win.” Instead, the “Man!

I’m not gonna sit around.” Having survived a devastating divorce as well as a bout with Lyme disease, Shania is keeping things in perspective. “I’d rather dream about songs or…

Recently, actress Reese Witherspoon, 44, opened up about sexism and struggles in Hollywood and offered the way she coped with being marginalized — humor. “I always say, ‘Funny doesn’t sag.’ I always just wanted to be funny, you know? And you can’t be rendered obsolete if you just keep being funny. Guess what gets rendered obsolete? Your boobs go south, your face goes south, your ass goes south, but you can always be funny. And those are my idols, my heroes — Goldie, Holly Hunter, Diane Keaton, Nancy Meyers — smart and funny.”…
