It does not matter where you are from, we all know who Raquel Welch is. She is a sex symbol even at 69, l mean just look at her. She has a nes book, Raquel: Beyond the Cleavage, where as mentioned in theage.com.au, she talks about getting older, starting a career at age 19 with two children in tow and reconciling her public persona with her private self.
"We can all agree that ageing is challenging, but believe me, it can be even more so for a fading sex symbol," she says. Look at me. I'm holding together just fine, I'm not doing it with no effort, I'm doing my yoga everyday - an hour-and-a-half of that - but really guys, what is the point of starting to lie about your age? I represent beauty, an idealised look to women and so they follow me when I do things." The book also talks about how she went through menopause, experimenting with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and estrogen boosts, only to settle for regular yoga sessions and a healthy diet! She does not have salt, sugar and caffeine and has "egg whites or a non-wheat grain" for breakfast. She never eats after 6 pm (What?) We all know all this but we don't do it, what's better than after the kids go to bed than to have a cuppa with some biscuits? (Source)
