Here's How Cher Really Feels About Aging

We may think Cher is aging gracefully, considering her flawless skin and banging body, but the "If I Could Turn Back Time" singer, who is now in her seventies as of this writing, said there is no such thing. The mega-star has been open about her views on beauty and medical enhancements, reportedly once calling herself the "poster girl for plastic surgery." She later revealed to the Daily Mail in 2018, "Yes, I have had a facelift, but who hasn't?"

Cher has done what she can to slow the process of aging, and in 2016, she revealed to Time she was still struggling to "accept" her maturity. "I don't want to either," she added, "But I don't really know how to. I look in the mirror, and I see this old lady looking back at me. And I have no idea how she got there." Although it may be surprising to hear that the "Believe" singer isn't as confident as she is on stage, struggling with some love isn't new to her. "I've never really been in love with Cher. She's all right, but I'm not a huge fan...I'm not a Cher fan," she said at the time.

Inside Cher's honest comments about aging

Many celebrities often gush over the aging process, prompting those at home to roll their eyes and try yet another QVC moisturizer, but Cher is keeping it real with her fans. "I hate it," the powerhouse told The Guardian about getting older in a Dec. 14, 2020, interview. "What, I'm going to say I like it? No, I don't. Any woman who is honest will say it's not as much fun."

Reminiscing on what life was like in her youth, Cher said, "When I was working on the road we used to work two shows a night and then go out dancing all night long." But now, Cher admitted, "It's like we've got to rest because you've got another night." In addition to needing more beauty rest these days, her mega-fame has made public outings a lot more difficult than when she was a rising star, telling the outlet that "everybody's got a camera and it's not safe."

Of course, Cher's longstanding life in the public eye is due to her talent rather than her looks. "You don't pay bucks to stand and look at someone. They've got to deliver something," she told The Guardian. "And I've worked my whole life to keep my strength in my body. There are 20-year-old girls who can't do what I do."
