Sally Field Hates Aging – But No Knife, Please

At 63, the Brothers & Sisters star doesn't like her neck


It’s been 44 years since Sally Field first surfed into America’s living rooms as TV’s Gidget, and though she still looks far better than most 63-year-olds, the current star of ABC’s Brothers & Sisters can’t help but look at the calendar – and in the mirror.

“I see myself on TV and I say, ‘Oh, I wish that weren’t happening to my neck. And your face is falling down, and your eyes are so puffy,’ ” the double Oscar winner tells Good Housekeeping for its March issue, on sale Feb. 10.

Of course, there is a familiar remedy, though Fields isn’t sold on it. “I see some of the women [who have had plastic surgery] who I thought when they were younger were so beautiful,” she says. “Now I think, Oh, dear, don’t do that! And it seems to be terribly disrespectful to who they are now.”
