    Default Sarah Silverman: ‘Aging is like a really slow moving horror movie for women’



    Do get your sweat on most days:
    “Just to keep your shell healthy and feel good.”

    Don’t clutter your life with stuff you can’t afford: “Keep your overhead low. Get a car with good mileage. Work toward buying your apartment. Shop at Gap. Enough with obsessing over the latest bag. It’s a purse. It holds stuff. Get a backpack. You’re being ridiculous.”

    Do brush and floss your teeth every day for reals:
    “Death creeps in through the gums. And scrape your gross tongue.”


    Don’t expect someone to “complete” you:
    “I don’t want to make a guy whole; I want him to come whole. I just realized I said ‘come whole.’”


    Do be with someone who gets turned on by you being turned on in bed:
    “Not everything has to be tit for tat, but a little genuine reciprocity is key.”


    Don’t be a bitter ex:
    “I adore the men I’ve dated and tend to stay close friends. They become family. I could be bitter, but bitterness feels bad. And it’s aging.”


    Don’t lack initiative:
    “People tell me, ‘I want to be a writer.’ OK, then write. There’s no trick. No one’s gonna knock on your door and ask you to write. Just write, dummy. Put your 10,000 hours in (see: Malcolm Gladwell), and be undeniable.”


    Also, don’t let defeat discourage you:
    “I got fired from Saturday Night Live and fired from my next job, a sitcom, right after. It made me gun-shy. But I lived through it. I kept going. As Charlie Kaufman said: ‘Do not worry about failure. Failure is a badge of honor. It means you risked failure.’”

    Do start reflecting: “I do therapy. If therapy isn’t your thing, then go to church or get a Pema Chodrion book for $9 on Audible–whatever you need to do to live an examined life. It’ll make your life (and the lives of people around you) exponentially richer.”

    Don’t talk sh-t about yourself:
    “You’ll start to believe it. Instead of droning on and on about how the tops of your strong, working thighs touch, why don’t you ask your friends how they’re doing, huh? I’ve caught myself feeling utter disgust looking at myself naked, and then I realized: If I was someone else, I would think, She’s beautiful and strong! If we were half as nice to ourselves as we are to any f–king stranger on the street, we’d be winning.”


    Don’t hate on your grown-ass skin:
    “I know, aging is like a really slow-moving horror movie, especially for women. But the lines on our faces are valuable. When I see people with fillers or weirdo stretched-out faces, I’m like, You look crazy. Your skin is gonna change. Mine is changing now. It’s getting looser. It’s how it is, OK?”

    "I know, aging is like a really slow-moving horror movie"

    I just thought of Nicole Kidman's face when I read that line

    ^ Inaccurate. Nicole's face isn't a slow moving horror movie, it's more like a still from a freakshow. It doesn't move at all.

    I thought Nicole was doing ok, until I saw the recent pictures at Cannes.

    Usually I can't stand this chick. But she has some really good points. Especially about being nice to ourselves. The shit I say to myself I wouldn't ever even think about my worst enemy. So true!

    Surprisingly she makes a some valid points in this interview, especially about failures in life and getting fired. It doesn't mean it's the end, it's part of life and we just have to keep going.

    Yeah, I thought it would be some sexist crap about women falling to bits (as if men don't) but it wasn't so kudos.

    I do too. I also think she's aging very well.

    Agreed. Normally she bugs me, too, but this makes me this she's not quite so grating.
    It's really human of you to listen to all my bullshit.

    She made a lot of sense. I'll have to try some of these tips. I'm really too hard on myself.

    We're all too hard on our ourselves, and then end up being overly harsh on each other in some vain attempt to make ourselves feel better. Never works.
