Helena Christensen has no worries of ageing as she never felt that she was a great beauty. The Danish fashion model believes it is more important to lead an interesting life. The forty four year old Victoria’s Secret Angel, beauty queen and photographer hates the fact of being complimented for ageing well,
She told The Times magazine:
”Why would I suddenly go, ‘Oh, gosh, now I’m a year older. Now I’m 35, now I’m 37…’ I didn’t think about it when I was in my twenties and I’m not thinking about it now.
”For a start, you never see yourself as a great beauty. And you look at yourself every day, so it’s not like you suddenly go, ‘Oh my God, my beauty is fading!’ and hide behind curtains for the rest of your life.
”I mean, my grandmother is 95 and she’s super-beautiful and really interesting, and I talk to her every three days for about 45 minutes, and those are often the most interesting conversations I can have for weeks.”
She shares a twelve year old son Mingus with ex-boyfriend ‘Walking Deads’ Norman Reedus has also said that her son is now disapproving of some of the clothing she wears going to work. She said:
”He will look at me in a strange way. But he grew up with me doing this job. We joke, ‘Your mum’s a model and your dad kills zombies: how’s that for parents?’ ”
Christensen hates the ideal of dieing and exercise but has taken up boxing in order to eat more. She said:
”Because I love and cherish food. I think it’s one of the most beautiful things. I realize how fortunate I am to not have those food issues. If I were overweight, it would be really difficult for me to stick to a diet and actually to lose weight.”
