Tiffani Thiessen feels at ease about turning 50 because she stopped giving a sh-t

Tiffani (Amber) Thiessen is lowkey one of my favorite celebrities and actresses. She’s been acting since she was a teen and she’s worked consistently in television for decades. She’s married to an actor (Brady Smith) and they have two children. She’s a bright spot whenever she turns up in a TV show, and I don’t know how to explain it, honestly – I just like her look and vibe and she seems really cool. I loved her cooking show (Dinner at Tiffani’s) and I wish it was still on the air. She will turn 50 years old next January, and she’s not stressed out about it whatsoever. I enjoyed these quotes from her appearance on the Good Instincts podcast so much:

She’s happy with her age: “I feel so much more at ease now than I was even ten years ago. And I don’t know why. I don’t know if it’s me just not giving a s—. Or it’s just me growing up and me being much more understanding of just who I am, which I think was always there because I do have great parents who have instilled really great values in me.

Looking ahead to 50: “It’s a different feeling this time around, hitting a bigger, you know, a bigger birthday this time. It’s interesting. Yes, I think people will say things, you know, and maybe expect me to look a certain way, yes. But, I mean, it’s just not realistic. I can only age the way I’m going to age, right?”

She’s now more focused on her mental health and well-being. “I’m taking care of myself and doing things that I know will benefit the outside exterior of myself that people are seeing. But, yeah, those people don’t know what’s happening on the inside. Because that’s what actually helps the outside. I’m doing it for myself. I’m doing it for my kids, my husband. I want to be around as long as possible for us to be able to see my kids grow up and have kids of their own and all those things that are much more important to me now.”

Her confidence wasn’t “100%” when she was in her 30s and early 40s. “I think also it had a lot to do with the fact that I had my kids in my late 30s and early 40s, so my body was changing so much hormonally and mentally. I think that had a lot to do with not totally set in feeling, you know, like, ‘I’ve got this, and I’m good.’ No matter what my body looks like or my face looks like. There is so much going on when you’re having your children, right? I’m past that now, and I’m at a good place for my kids. My main concern right now is just raising happy, healthy kids that are going to, you know, do well for themselves and society.”

There was this thing, years ago, where basically every 20-something actress was absolutely miserable and then they all started turning 30 and everything changed almost overnight for them. My point is… a lot of people feel like garbage in their 20s and youth is wasted on the young. Once you get past that navel-gazing, self-conscious, don’t-know-what-the-hell-I’m-doing phase of life, you stop giving a sh-t about all of it. The older I get, the fewer sh-ts I have to give. Do I still have little hangups and crutches? For sure. But other than that, I truly DGAF. I imagine my 50s will feel even better than this.
