A Bond WOMAN, at last!

A Bond WOMAN, at last!

 

007 romancing an older woman? We love it!

When I saw the trailer for the new Bond flick, Spectre, I had to find out more! Monica Bellucci isn’t your typical Bond girl. She is fifty-one years old,walking that Bond movie premiere red carpet. Not only that, she’s four years older than Daniel Craig, which makes her an “older woman.” (Not to say cougar) No one batted an eyelid to think of a forty-seven year-old Bond, but when you start talking about Bellucci cast opposite him, jaws dropped. Thank you, director Sam Mendez.

In an interview in The Daily Mail, Ms. Belucci shares the perspective that makes her a Hot Flash Heroine:

‘…menopause is a natural thing, it is not a sickness,’ she says. ‘OK, the body at the beginning will get a bit mad. But after a few months, or one year, it’s going to be OK. This is a natural process of life. I am not nervous about it at all.’

We LOVE that!

Of course, as a woman who’s been voted “the most beautiful woman in the world” on numerous occasions- Monica Bellucci isn’t what most people think of when they think of women heading into menopause. But we think she’s what YOU should think of, along with that key phrase, “menopause is a natural thing.” Shoot. If menopause doesn’t scare a Bond woman- take your cue from her!

What we’d like to ask if we’d had a few glasses of wine:  In the movies, it’s customary for leading men to be cast opposite women who are as much as half their age. In your “real life”, would you date a man who is half your age? What are the advantages of being the “older woman”?

HotFlashDaily.com was created in the spirit of making every day your very best, even when you just don’t feel like it.

The site was conceived and built through the combined efforts of contributing bloggers, technicians, and impassioned women who believe the way we treat ourselves is a direct reflection of how we feel about ourselves.

We’re looking for true short stories for the website, and perhaps for inclusion in an e-book, from women who want to tell others about their experiences with peri-menopause, menopause, and beyond. We’re looking for experiences, ups/downs/unexpected highs and lows, sticky situations, “what I wish I’d known”, “what I’d tell my younger self”.. you name it!
