Some people don’t seem to understand that there are multiple forms of retouching. Some is done in a doctor’s office. Some is done in Photoshop. And if you’re a Jenndashian, some is done in a Tijuana basement. Susan Lucci might not be Photoshopped in these new pics from Harper’s Bazaar, but she undoubtedly got some help from the OG Photoshop – a scalpel – that helped her look this weathered and gremlin-like. But still good for seventy-one. Here she is on being grounded and a realist:
I feel as good now as I ever did in my 20s and 30s, maybe even better physically… What I’ve learned is that if you train hard, you can offset some of what you’ve got going against you. People look at me and say ‘Wow, she doesn’t seem old, but she is old.’ Meanwhile, the reality is if you’re strong, you’re beautiful, no matter what age you are.
Who exactly is Susan Lucci you ask? Some old bag of bones in a wig. Who she is isn’t important. All you need to decide is if you – let’s say after downing four shots before stumbling onto this beach to find a woman looking like a plastic surgery-addicted crab after molting but still good for her age – would hit it. Let us know below.
