What Hath HDTV Wrought on Hollywood's Actresses?

Tongues were wagging around the SheFinds watercooler today as talk turned to some of Hollywood’s greatest actresses migrating to television.  We’re totally thrilled that we’re able to watch their work, but in one case we were so focused on someone else’s work that we stopped focusing on the actress.  We’re asking: what ever happened to aging gracefully?

Last night’s episode of ABC's Grey’s Anatomy featured Tony-award winning actress Bernadette Peters, who barely looks 40 years old, much less her actual 60. We can barely hold our excitement for Emmy winner Glenn Close in FX’s Damages and she looks stunning at 61. But what in the world happened to Hollywood icon Mary Tyler Moore, who was barely recognizable on NBC's Lipstick Jungle on Wednesday night at 71?  Is it Botox? Restylane? Surgery?  One of us almost spilled a glass of wine when she came on the screen, it was so jarring.

Look, we’re sure that it’s hard enough to have to age without having to worry about high-definition programming and millions of viewers judging you, but at the point where we have to look twice to see if it’s you in there, you must stop.  We hope that was really good in-character makeup for her character but we idolize Mary and her aging process so far. May we suggest a Bliss Youth Group Skincare Kit ($68)?   Some Freeze 24/7 anti-wrinkle cream ($65)? Allegedly that stuff works in minutes. At least try one of the solutions in our Plastic Surgery At Home guide before going under the knife or needle.

 There has to be something we can do…
