U.S. Women – More Obsessed with Aging

The American-British actress really believes that U.S. women are more concerned about the aging process than the British women. She adds that it’s her personal opinion because she has noticed that she is more comfortable with the aging process as compared to the U.S. women who work with her and are a bit older than her.

The producer also thinks that people’s mindsets play a major role in perception about aging, reports SF Gate. In Britain, people consider aging a natural process and they believe that women who age naturally can be beautiful but in L.A., aging is considered to be a flaw such as wrinkles are an imperfection.
