If I were to be interviewed for this issue of ELLE, my quote would be:
"IT IS BETTER TO HAVE MADE A MISTAKE AND LEARNED FROM IT, THAN TO HAVE REGRETTED NEVER MAKING THE MISTAKE AT ALL."
Here's to the next twenty five.
"I'm both young and old. My mom told me,
'Don't grow up too quickly; once you're an adult, you'll always be an adult"
"The best thing is, I'm happy.
The worst thing is that I'm scared --
the scariest thing is that I know it can't be easy--the years to come."
"It's your time to be selfish;
you still have freedom."
"Jump out of a plane!
In your twenties, you're still very courageous."
"It's like when you're 16 and order a martini, and the waiter says,
'do you think I'm stupid? '
They can't grasp that I'm old enough to be married.
Marriage? Me? Hell no. Not in this decade. But everything else these ladies said, yes, I second that.
