58-year-old Allison Janney rocks a red swimsuit, opens up about ageing gracefully
Nothing to see here, just Allison Janney completely rocking a swimsuit.
The 58-year-old actress proved that age is just a number by posing in a one-piece for a stunning new photo shoot.
Looking fierce in a red one-shoulder swimsuit, diamond drop earrings and killer heels, the Academy Award winning actress opened up in the October issue of, InStyle about staying in shape and ageing in the spotlight.
Though she likes to stay fit, she’s not a slave to a routine.
“Most recently, on location, I didn’t work out one bit. I’ve got a gym in my garage and a pilates trainer who comes on the weekends, and that feels good,” she told InStyle’s editor-in-chief Laura Brown.
@AllisonBJanney is high-kicking aging and and body-image insecurities to the curb! “It’s hard.” she tells @LauraBrown99 in our October beauty issue. “I remember telling myself when I was younger, looking in the mirror and seeing some imperfection or wrinkle, even in my 20s, ‘Just remember this, Allison. You’re looking at your face now and finding fault with it. Just stop. Because you will always find fault.’” Now having won Emmys and an Oscar, she feels a different kind of confidence when she walks onto a set. “I’m not afraid to ask for what I need — that’s been a great result of getting recognized,” she says. “But I also think not being comfortable in your body makes it hard to be sexy. No matter what your shape or size, if you’re comfortable in it, it’s so sexy and so obvious to people. And doing things to help that along is valuable.” More on how she found her confidence at the link in bio. I Photographed by @AlexanderNeumann; Styled by @AndreasKokkino

When it comes to her health regime now compared to when she was younger, the ‘I Tonya’ star revealed that her chosen way to keep fit is to throw some shapes.
“It wasn’t a workout society back then. People went to the gym, but it wasn’t until I got to New York in the ’80s that the gym craze started. I did Jane Fonda’s [workout]. But my favourite way to work out is just to dance — go to a dance club and just sweat buckets,” she said.
Despite showing her body confidence by posing in her swimsuit, the actress revealed she does suffer from insecurities.
“My biggest insecurity is my jowls,” she said. “I’m gonna do one of those thread lifts. I remember telling myself when I was younger, looking in the mirror and seeing some imperfection or wrinkle, even in my 20s, “Just remember this, Allison. You’re looking at your face now and finding fault with it. Just stop. Because you will always find fault.”

And though she’s noticing her body and face changing as she gets older she’s trying to embrace the ageing process.
“There are a lot of things I’m noticing as I get older. I’m trying to grow old gracefully and embrace it, but I also want to fight it and do little things here and there to help,” she continued.
For, Allison, it’s about being comfortable in the skin you’re in.
“No matter what your shape or size, if you’re comfortable in it, it’s so sexy and so obvious to people. And doing things to help that along is valuable,” the ‘West Wing’ actress revealed.
“Like, I remember doing this pole-dancing class, and it did so much for me. It’s like wearing lacy underwear. No one sees it, but you know you have it on.”
