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.”
