When it comes to getting older, Virginia Madsen follows her mother’s example. “The best thing I ever heard about aging was said by my mother: Make life an adventure. She didn’t fear aging – when she turned 40, she had a big birthday,” the actress tells Health magazine. And Madsen, 47, teamed up with her now-75-year-old mom, who directed the documentary I Know a Woman Like That (which the actress produced), about women between the ages of 64 to 94. “Their bodies have changed, but they’re all living inspiring lives.” – Serena Kappes
