    she looks really old and washed out, well over 50 years old and still trying to play a 30 year old ridiculous. it must be all of the harsh camera lights and the layers of makeup and hard partying, it really takes it toll over the years.This is a hard industry as the younger and prettier and more talented women come into the scene it is time to bow out gracefully, as they turn to heavy drug and alcohol use, is apparent, too many late nights.
