Who says you can’t have a rocking body at 40?
“I want Hollywood and America to know 40 is not old. As my mom told me, ‘Charisma, welcome to the best decade of your life, because not only do you look as good as you did when you were 23, but you’re so much smarter.’ I’m now better in every way: I’ve had years to hone my craft. I’m better at acting, I’m a better mom, I’m a better friend. I’m just a more confident woman. It’s awesome!”
You heard it here first: 40 is the new 23, and if you don’t believe us, just check out the bikini-clad Carpenter in the pic above!
