Susan Sarandon, Sigourney Weaver, And Jane Fonda Are High-Fashion Cover GirlsJenna Sauers11/23/10 11:15amFiled to: Just a numberSusan SarandonSigourney WeaverJane Fondav magazineChina machadoImanLucian FreudFb64EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkAnd now it's time for a feel-good quote from Susan Sarandon: "I wouldn't want to be 20 now. I know so much more, and I'm much more comfortable in my skin, saggy as it is."AdvertisementNot that the actress has ever betrayed any hint of such "sag" anywhere about her person. But hey! Sarandon, 64, Sigourney Weaver, 61, and Jane Fonda, 72, are all featured on the cover of V's new "Who Cares About Age?" issue. The magazine features profiles, fashion spreads, and features related to subjects aged 31-87 — including everyone from Iman, 55, to China Machado, "into her 70s," to Lucian Freud, 87. (We haven't seen the issue yet, but based on various online previews, it seems like Freud may be the only, or one of very few, older men in the magazine. It's annoying that it's still assumed that age and ageing are issues of concern only to women.)Weaver's cover has her wearing a baseball cap. Hot.AdvertisementAlso, are you a young lady who has been duped by the fashion and beauty industries into spending your precious time and brain cells worrying about the diameter of her pores? Susan Sarandon would like to tell you to relax. "You're at the peak of your physical beauty right now! Just enjoy it and stop worrying about your thighs being too big." Besides, "If you're upset with how you look at 25, life's going to be tough."These magazine covers have obviously been retouched — but it's kind of nice that they at least they gesture at the existence of their subjects' wrinkles. There's a suggestion of the real texture of skin there. Normally when non-20-somethings get on ladymag covers, they are styled and Photoshopped into plastic simulacra of youth.I note in passing that — unlike when V did a "Size" issue — the magazine did not choose to put a very young actress on its "Age" cover for purposes of comparison.
