The sensational 70-year-old lady, who lives with her husband Laurie, 80, wrote an article about Quora on how to stay fit in her later years.
While admitting that she is blessed with a natural body type of "up and down," she said that looking good does not mean having supermodel proportions.
"For me, an excellent form is an erect body without excess fat, a good waist, a flat front (some of us will always have a small belly) and toned from head to toe," he explained.
& # 39; An excellent form should not be defined by height or type of figure. You can be small or tall You can be curvy or straight up and down (my husband's nickname for me when I'm tanned is "liquor stick"). Or it can be anything in between.
"So, I'm not talking about stereotypes of fashion or glamor models here. I'm talking about the body that we all know is great when we see it. "
