"I don't think you come into your own until you're 35 or so," Cindy Crawford tells the Sunday Mirror in one of her most in-depth interviews in recent years. The 44-year old supermodel attributes her success to being wholesome: "I'm all-American," Crawford says. "Sexy but not intimidating. Not the kind of woman who's going to steal someone's husband." And she sheds some light on how she keeps up her figure:

With chocolate, you eat only dark. I never dieted but I'd go off white food for three days—no pasta, rice, sugar or flour. I'm running around with kids and volunteering at school. I can't be bothered with complicated diets and weight plans.

I'm becoming a woman of a certain age. Just because you can wear a micro-miniskirt it doesn't mean you should. You don't need to show your midriff either if you're over 40.

I've tried botox but I'm afraid of it. I don't think injections should be used to change your face. I'm not a fan of fillers at all. If you've gone 35 or 40 years without big lips, I don't think it's time to start plumping them up artificially.
