and for those who like to comfort themselves as they grow older that they look just as good as they did when they were in their twenties, there's a name for that, too...
Outgrowing the vanity of youth

"outgrowing the vanity of youth" would mean they didn't concern themselves so much with looks, not that they'd be in denial ABOUT their looks.
Guy already responded best to that, http://www.trekbbs.com/showpost.php?...1&postcount=55

Oh yes, being a Voyager fan on tbbs is just like being a Christian in America. Merciless oppression.

This is true. I've read the newsletters.

Emilia had it right.

But looks are personal taste too. What about all those nudes by Rubens etc.. which were of beautiful women of the time? They would be called fat today by Hollywood standards.

very true. Funny how cultural standards work-The stick-figure look of today would have been seen as a sign of poverty or poor health not too long ago. It's so out of whack that when you see an actress who is the normal size for her height she's regarded as "fat."

But not in the world of Wall-E.

They'd be skinny bitches.

It's not a matter of "just as good" it's that you look different. There are different kinds of sexy, hot, beautiful, erotic and youth is just one of those kinds.


On another board I frequent, we had a thread last year about how one particular actress looked more wonderful as she aged.

Of course, as you've noted already... personal preference is "personal".

Re: Janeway wins in a poll of 10,000 people..

I think a lot of people look much better as they age because they look more decisive and sure of themselves. I'm watching early Stargate at the moment and Amanda Tapping IMO has vastly improved as Helen Magnus in Sanctuary for just those reasons.
