Acting, directing, designing, modelling — Chloe Sevigny‘s done it all.
Despite having worked for more than 20 years in the entertainment industry, the 41-year-old appears not to have aged a day. It’s a puzzle that leaves many perplexed. How is it possible? What’s her secret? Where can I buy it?
In a recent interview with W magazine, the American Horror Story star was honest about the lifestyle choice she reckons is responsible for her smooth complexion — and it’s not a daily green smoothie.
“I think it’s not having had a baby yet. Because I think the baby wear and tear and stress on your body is part of the reason why people say, ‘Why do you still look so young?'” she said.

“I really think that that unfortunately ages women, especially when they have children in their 30s, not in their 20s. So I think, first and foremost, it’s that and genetics.”
Ouch. Sorry mums and dads.
Fortunately, Sevigny has some other tricks to try.
“I do lots of moisturising, lots of water. I don’t do a lot of caffeine. I go to Dr. Colbert, who is this fancy dermatologist. I haven’t really gone the Botox route yet, but he does lasers and very expensive facials and stuff like that,” she said. (Post continues after gallery.)
“But once I hit 40 I feel like things are starting to happen now that aren’t very exciting, and I’m starting to get a little scared.”
Unsurprisingly, not everyone agreed with Sevigny’s comment.
If you have children of course life change, more stress, but at the end of the story you r happy.https://t.co/6rJE1HWKHN

“Really? Ridiculous advice,” commented another user.
Controversial claim aside, taking care of your skin with moisturiser and water is a simple lifestyle choice anyone can get the benefits from if they’re so inclined — whether they have kids or not.
Do you think kids age you or keep you young?
