Fame is an interesting phenomenon.
When I model I pretty much go blank. You can't think too much or it doesn't work.
Beauty, unlike the rest of the gifts handed out at birth, does not require dedication, patience and hard work to pay off. But it's also the only gift that does not keep on giving.
I will continue to be intelligent, I vowed, no matter how beautiful I become.
Beauty can get a woman what she wants: love and money. But when beauty leaves you, so can the things it brought.
Now, I don't actually know the exact cut-off age where beautiful ceases and 'must have-once-been-beautiful' begins. It's true it's not forty-five. I can still get attention when I try really hard, even if it's greatly reduced.
