Oprah Winfrey is throwing her arms around the aging process and enjoying everyday as a 59-year-old woman.
During a photo shoot for the May issue of O Magazine, the media mogul said it drives her nuts when people are afraid of aging.
“People get all screwed up and afraid of aging when in fact each year should be a celebration. You should be celebrating each year that you are given,” she said. “That’s why I don’t understand women lying about their age and everybody dreading getting older. It means you are still here and you’re still vibrant. It makes me nuts that people get crazy about it!”
She went on to offer some aging advise: “Don’t be afraid people.”
“I stand here at 59 years old and so happy to claim every single part of the journey,” she said.
