Sigourney Weaver Growing Old Gracefully

Friday, June 17, 2011

ACTRESS Sigourney Weaver is backing herself to be a Hollywood golden oldie.

The Alien star says at 61 she still feels her best years as an actress are ahead of her.

“It’s important to grow old gracefully and that’s what I plan to do,” says Sigourney. “I am here to stay. I take care of myself and I have the discipline to stay fit and have good health until I am very old.

“I’m not planning on retiring and in many ways, professionally at least, I think my best days are still to come.”

Weaver recently insisted she considers being a parent and a wife is more important to her than being a Hollywood star.

“I think most of my life changing experiences have been as a parent and as a wife — for a mother, just getting your child through the school system is a heroic job, and when I think of my life, I don’t think of my work, I think of my real life,” she said.

“You know, at home I have my family and I have all the different things that I care about, like human rights. There are lots of causes that I work for and when I’m in New York I end up just spending a lot of time on them. I don’t begrudge it all, I’m saying that I keep incredibly busy.

“I love to be with my family, I love to do nothing, I love to read, to be in the garden, I love to take walks, play with my dogs and to cook — I am incredibly boring.

“My perfect day would be spent in the country, out in nature with the dogs and my husband and maybe my daughter and her boyfriend.
