Susanna Talks about Hotness, Ageism, and Love with Velvetpark

Posted on Sep 27, 2012 in News

Following the debut of the “Picture Me” video, Susanna spoke with Velvetpark about a variety of topics she doesn’t normally get to discuss, including ageism: “I saw the French icon Catherine Deneuve, who must be well into her 60s, last summer in Paris walking down Boulevard Saint-Germain, in all her glory and with a spring in her step. I think, in Europe, the culture embraces older women as still vital and sexy. There seems to be a tremendous amount of ageism, as well as a fixation on youth, in the U.S. I often talk with female friends my age about how it can feel like we have an expiration date embossed on our foreheads. A friend recently described the feeling as becoming invisible when we hit our 40s and 50s.”
