Not to steal credit from Lauren Bacall, but the quote cited in Page Six today—"When you get older, you have to be ready to trade your ass for your face"—is from French actress Catherine Deneuve. It's also been attributed to Kathleen Turner, Mae West, and Zsa Zsa Gabor. It's like the urban legend of aging actress quotes! As a woman at the bar at Elaine's asked the other night, "How do you know about the 'ass or face' debate at such a young age?" Oh, I know, sweetie. We all know. Some examples of which aging celebs have chosen what follows. Ass or face? There will be a test at the end.Madonna has chosen her ass, which is why her face looks sucked dry of any possible joy. (Oh, and you know who's veering dangerously close to the wrong side of the face choice? Jeeeeennifer Aaaaaniston.)
Liz Taylor? She chose carbs. Her face looks great.
Now you try it! Test question: Cindy McCain.
