Kyra Sedgewick in Good Housekeeping

Actress Kyra Sedgwick makes aging gracefully look good. The 47-year-old beauty took time out of her busy schedule to pose for the cover of Good Housekeeping’s latest issue.

Sedgwick told the mag, “I really want to embrace my age. Julianna (Margulies) and I talk about it a lot when we see each other, and that’s helpful. We want to age gracefully and naturally and play roles commensurate with our age.”

What’s also helpful is having handsome hubby Kevin-Bacon by her side. “I don’t know how he does it, but he always makes me feel like I’m the most beautiful woman in the room- the only girl in the room. He says, ‘Honey, you look beautiful. You are sexy!’ Always, always, always!”

That attraction has made things easier now that their kids are out of the house. Sedgwick admitted, “There’s a lot more walking around the house naked.”
