Oscar Wilde, Christian Dior, Leonardo DiCaprio and other men - honest and witty about women and their age.
Pierce Brosnan, actor
“In my opinion, women become sexier by the age of 35. They know more, and knowledge is always attractive."
Oscar Wilde, writer
"She's still thirty-five years old since she was forty."
Andy Rooney, journalist
“As I get older, I appreciate women over forty more and more. There are many reasons for this. For example, a woman over forty will never wake you up in the middle of the night to ask: "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think."
Chuck Palahniuk, writer
"Nothing is eternal. Even the Mona Lisa is gradually crumbling."
Pascal Brueckner, writer
"At twenty years old beauty is nature, at thirty-five it is a reward, at fifty it is a miracle."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor
“A lesson for every woman: always strive to be more beautiful. It's your job! Know your value, but don't name the price!"
Christian Dior, designer
“Women are most attractive between the ages of thirty-five and forty. And since only a few women are over 40, the peak of attractiveness can last forever.”
Boris Akunin, writer
"The secret of women's happiness is the ability to pass from one age to another in time, and a woman has three ages: daughter, wife and mother."
Ivan Efremov, writer
“Women don't like young people who are more attractive to men than themselves. A woman is always an enemy to a woman until she is old."
Erlend Lou, writer
“She believed that with age and experience solidity and calmness will come, but the opposite is true: only stress and fear of not being excellent students become stronger. The feeling that she has to prove something has become much stronger."
Heath Ledger, actor
“I prefer experienced, mature women. Because they don't try to act like adults, but they can act like young people."
Richard Sheridan, poet
"It is not easy for a woman who wants to look like a girl at thirty-six."
Oleg Roy, writer
“Sometimes you meet a woman, looking at whom you wonder and cannot understand how old she is. She looks great, and that's why I want to say about her that she is somewhere between twenty-five and eternal youth."
Jared Leto, actor
“We will all become old and shriveled. But nobody cancels self-care, of course."
Adrian Decursel, playwright
“Age is a river; women are trying to make it flow back after a thirty-year course”.
Honore de Balzac, writer
“At thirty, at the poetic pinnacle of her life, women can follow her all the way and see the future as well as the past. Women then know the value of love and value it, fearing to lose it; at that time, their souls are still painted by the passing youth, and their love becomes stronger and stronger from fear of the future."
Charlie Jones, musician
Girls: Addressing Each Other Women Over Forty.
Leszek Kumor, film critic
"Three periods in a woman's life: when she is not afraid to give away her age, when she is afraid to give out her age and when age gives her away."
Joseph Heller, writer
“Girls under 25 are agreeable and nice. After 25 years, girls are even more agreeable, but sad, and this is not so cute."
Jules Renard, writer
"A woman never stops talking about her age and never names him."
Jean-Paul Belmondo, actor
"Women in their thirties are in their best shape, but men in their thirties are too old to understand."
John Gray, psychologist
“In adolescence, women tend to sacrifice themselves much more, adapting to the wishes and needs of their partner. A man in his youth is too absorbed in his own person, he does not care about other people's desires and needs. However, over time, a woman begins to understand to what extent she forgot about herself for the sake of her partner. And with age, a man reveals that he is not the only one who deserves human relations and respect."
Jack Nicholson, actor
“I don’t know if this statistic is correct, but I heard somewhere that there are three times more single women over forty than single men. This is what the women's movement has led to."
George Jean Nathan, critic
“As women get older, they rely more and more on cosmetics and men on their sense of humor.”
Peter Lindbergh, photographer
“When I shot for the last Pirelli calendar, I was told, 'Oh, how daring it is to shoot aged actresses without retouching.' What are you? I just like all these women, I don't care about their age."
William Somerset Maugham, writer
“Seventeen plus twelve is only twenty-nine, and this, damn it, is not old age. Cleopatra was forty-eight when Antony renounced power over the world for her sake.
Daniel Craig, actor
“The beauty of a woman does not depend on the number in the passport and how smooth her skin is. Internal content and talent are much more important!"
Finley Peter Dunn, writer
"A woman is as old as she looks in the eyes of a man who likes her."
Alexander Vasiliev, fashion historian
“Old knocked-out game is not interesting for a man - he has already tried it. Change! Be new and exciting. Change little things, scents, recipes, wardrobe, hairstyles."
Mark Levy, writer
"I know only one alchemy that gives beauty to age: it is called feeling."
