Hutton made her name modeling but went on to enjoy an illustrious TV and movie career.

She has continued to land modeling campaigns in recent years despite her age, even posing topless for Harper’s Bazaar in 2022.  

The 80-year-old, who is still very involved in the beauty and skincare business, gave an interview in recent years in which she discussed her philosophies about growing older gracefully. 

‘Whether it’s beauty or fashion, there’s an obsession with youth. But if we’re lucky, we’re all going to get old,’ she told beauty publication Byrdie. 

‘I think it’s time to realize that anti-aging is an old-fashioned term.’ 

She explained that there was plenty of ‘research that shows that our attitudes have so much to do with how we age,’ and that we should not stress and worry about a particular wrinkle or spot. 

Instead, she said, the main focus should be, ‘on taking good care of our skin and ourselves, and the industry can help shift that conversation for the future.’
