I just don't know! none of us want to be old and wrinkly, and I hate the term 'grow old gracefully' as I intend to 'grow old very disgracefully' indeed. but to deny the process is madness isn't it? not to mention painful...
And is this what men think women in their fifties look like...my husband was quite surprised when I told him Madonna had probably been shot up with enough botox to kill a horse...and as for the 'three hours in the gym and I only eat a grape and a strawberry a day'...forget it, I get plenty of exercise going to the fridge and back, and from lifting large bars of chocolate to my mouth!!!!
Is Madonna trying to turn herself into Kate Winslet?
She's the queen of reinvention and it seems that Madonna is now targeting the Winslet look.
The 50-year-old, who has stunned onlookers in recent weeks with her incredibly youthful appearance, was a dead ringer for Oscar winner Kate as she had dinner in New York. Her tousled hair and soft make-up made her look almost identical to the 33-year-old who has ditched her English rose image for a more Hollywood look since making America her permanent home.

And Madonna has clearly been influenced by the younger woman's style as she continues to fight the ageing process.
Last month there was speculation that the star's wrinkle-free skin may be the result of an new procedure called the 'ribbon lift'.
The 30-minute treatment, which is available at Beverly Hills clinics for around $6,000 (£4,300), uses a dissolvable ribbon implant to lift neck tissues through a short incision around the earlobe.
Plastic surgeon Alex Karidis suggested to Grazia magazine that the singer could have been showing telltale signs of the procedure in a photograph taken in February when she was pictured with a very red face.

Perhaps Madonna is attempting to look youthful in a bid to keep her toyboy model Jesus Luz who is 28 years her junior.
Her younger man has given up his life in Brazil to move in with her in Manhattan.
She is said to be insisting he follows her daily macrobiotic diet with no sugary treats, dairy products and processed food.
