“I am really happy where I am," says Britton about being in her 40s. "Your 40s are a great decade to be in. You sort of live your whole life worrying about the "Big 40." But, for me, it is a full and fruitful time. My body is still in good shape, but it’s more about the wisdom for me. If you serve your spirit, all of a sudden at this age, life is less scary, less overwhelming. Maybe that’s the whole secret to life. It’s not that bad getting older, you can enjoy it."
Britton, who is currently working on "American Crime Story with Ryan Murphy" playing Faye Resnick discusses today's expectations for women’s beauty in the article: “Everything [people] see from Hollywood, on television, in movies and in magazines is doctored, it’s not real. I really don’t want to feed into that. The best advice I can give to any woman, or any young girl, or even my younger self, is to not give in to that pressure. Find your own value. Know your body. Know what works for you. There is so much pressure, but we do have a choice. It has to be your life you are living. I try to carry that philosophy into every aspect of my life.”
“I can go for days without washing my hair, and people freak out about that," Britton comments about her famous mane of hair. "It gets better from the natural oils that make it shiny and make it do what I want it to do.”
About dieting the actress, who is often seen on set with a salad when the rest of the cast is enjoying a catered meal, states, “My philosophy on life impacts my diet. I don’t want to create a vision of a woman who is starving herself, but I also like to feel good, so I tend to stick to certain healthy foods that do that. But, I love cake, and I eat it sometimes—even though I don’t always feel so great afterward.”
Britton moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2012 when she signed to star as Rayna Jaymes in the ABC musical drama "Nashville."
