At a period of life when most people have accepted the spare tire, the gray or thinning hair, the crow’s feet and facial wrinkles, stars like Madonna, Meg Ryan, and Denzel Washington have managed to keep themselves fit and youthful. How do they do it?
Demi Moore sticks to a raw vegan diet. Sting practices yoga.

Sarah:  And…

John:  Is that how your skin stays so soft?

Sarah:  And supple.

John:  Yeah.

Sarah:  Yes.

John:  Okay.

Sarah:  And how you don’t see lots of wrinkles and stuff.

John:  And then do you leave it on all night?

Sarah:  Yeah.

John:  Are you being serious?

Sarah:  Totally.

John:  Are there any other secrets like this that I can try?

Sarah:  Umm, a lot of girls put avocado in their hair because it makes it soft.

John:  Oh. That sounds kind of gross.
