This past weekend I watched the SAG (Screen Actors Guild) Awards where Rita Moreno was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

At 82 years of age, she looked amazing, wearing a leather-studded jacket with a low-cut (but tasteful) evening dress.  And, she wore glasses and sported grey hair (like most people in their 80s).  Aside from her appearance, she sang, danced and spoke with a youthful exuberance that made her seem half her age.

In Hollywood’s youth obsessed culture, where many middle-aged actors no longer even resemble themselves due to a bit too much Botox or cosmetic surgery, she set a new standard for aging gracefully.
